Show Details
The Santa Cruz Bronson Carbon C frame is the reference for all-mountain riding and racing, and one of Santa Cruz's most versatile and popular models ever. With a 27.5" wheel size you get most of the improved roll-over-everything wheel diameter of a 29er while retaining most of the agility of a standard 26" mountain bike. Defined as an enduro racing frame, the 27.5 wheel size enabled Santa Cruz to build a taller bike with 150mm travel in a geometry that handles beautifully. The Bronson uses a one-piece, continuous carbon fiber lay-up, which allows interlocking fibers to wrap between tubes and removes any excess material from the frame, producing lightweight performance. Santa Cruz put a lot of emphasis on the performance and ride characteristics of their VPP suspension design, with adjustability of shock rates for individual designs, superb pedaling and bump smoothing characteristics. The new frame has all the trimmings demanded today: 142mm rear axle spacing, new molded rubber swingarm and downtube protectors, ISCG-05 carbon tabs, dropper seatpost internal cable routing and a 73mm threaded BB for creak-free riding. Welcome to the Santa Cruz Bronson, a new perspective on what a 6-inch travel bike can conquer. 5 year warranty. Shock pump is sold separately.

If the size you need is not in-stock, please feel free to order. We'll have it here in a matter of days.

After taking a few years off, the RockShox PIKE RCT3 Solo Air comes back in the RockShox lineup, as the ultimate trail fork. A comeback has never been so amazing.

The Solo Air lets you add air to your forks through a single Schrader valve, filling both the positive and negative air spring chambers simultaneously. Giving you a plush, predictable ride you can set up in seconds, with the lightest weight air spring on the market. The Maxle Lite is a nifty 15mm thru axle system that makes your bike both lighter and stiffer. 150mm travel.

Select Tire
Show Details
A radically redesigned version of the time honored Racing Ralph, Schwalbe took their most successful competition tire, kept the low profile lugs in the middle, and added newly designed 'U-Block' side grips for exceptional traction. The U-block is a high profile lug with a half open serration, which digs in when the bike is put on its side. All this translates into a tire that lets you get up to speed when hammering the flats, and keeps you upright when carving through a corner at speed. The SnakeSkin sidewall guards against abrasion damage, while the specifically shaped and coated tire bead quickly seals on the rim and provides safer seating without the extra weight penalty of true UST tires.

Show Details
The wheels that you have purchased require no rim strip and include a valve stem for tubeless use. Additionally, the tires that you have selected may be used without tubes. This tubeless technology requires sealant to maintain air pressure.

Sealant helps stop many leaks and flats incurred during normal riding conditions. The solution can be used year round, even in sub freezing temperatures.
Select Crankset
Show Details
The most noticeable addition of the updated XT group is the M785 2x10 (double chainring) crankset, with calculated gear ratios that optimize the 10-speed cassette. Not only does this pristinely simple setup provide smoother shifting, but the improved (straighter) chainline allows better frame clearance and compatibility on a wide range of bikes. Choose between the 26x38 or 28x40 gearing configuration to fit your particular fitness and riding style.
Select Shifter
Show Details
The Shimano XT SL-M780-10 Rapidfire shifters easily convert to either a double or triple crankset mode with the simple turn of a screw on the left shifter. Unique 2-way cable release accommodates individual riding styles or shifting (index finger or thumb.) The upper lever still performs the same function, but now swings both ways. Pull it with your finger or push it with your thumb. The fastening clamp offers variable positioning, allowing you to set up your cockpit just the way you'd like it. The optical gear display floats above the handlebar, or it can be removed completely. Shimano SIS-SP41 outer housing and coated stainless steel cable provide super smooth shifting. Includes front and rear shifters.

Features
  • For use with Shimano 2x10 crankset
  • Forged aluminum body
  • Cable routing: Dual pull
Select Rear Derailleur
Show Details
Efficiency was the key principle when designing the Shimano Dyna-Sys XT M780 SGS 10-speed rear derailleur. The derailleur was designed with a longer swing arm and a tighter spring for crisper shifting when you want it, and less 'ghost shifting' when you don't. The Dyna-Sys rear derailleur will stay in adjustment longer and deliver consistent performance with each ride.
Select Cassette
Show Details
The Shimano XT 10-speed cassette provides a more efficient and usable range of gears. The gears are arranged so that when you shift the front chainrings, you only have to adjust one gear in the back to 'recover' your gear. The XT cassette sprockets offer Shimano's patented Hyperglide shifting ramps and alloy carriers for great shifting and less weight. Shimano also offers a wide range of cassette choices with 11-32 for XC racers, 11-36 for all-day climbing, and 11-34 for everything in between.
Select Chain
Show Details
The Shimano XT CN-HG95 10-speed chain was developed specifically for MTB riding. This directional chain employs task-specific link plates to optimize front and rear shifting, and offers excellent mud shedding thanks to the special outer link plate design. A new Sil-Tec treatment on the plates allows them the freely pivot around derailleur pulleys, cogs, and chain rings with less friction. For use with 10-speed Shimano drivetrains only, will not work for road use. 283 g.
