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.

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.

While other systems rely on side loading the bearings to eliminate play (which causes premature bearing wear), the SRAM GXP bottom bracket system is different. The GXP system positions the left side bearing between the spindle and the left crankarm, while allowing the drive-side bearing to float axially on the spindle, thereby eliminating the necessity to side-load bearings during adjustment. GXP's design allows greater variation in BB shell alignment, maintaining precision and performance regardless of thread and construction irregularities in the frame. Installation is simple: once it is tightened to the proper specifications you are ready to roll with a worry free bottom bracket employing two bicycle specific cartridge bearings and eight seals for a smooth and long lasting ride.
