Santa Cruz enters the 650b/27.5 wheel size with the introduction of the Santa Cruz Bronson all-mountain frame. 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. Billed 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 Cuz 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 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.
