The Santa Cruz Bronson Carbon C frame with the new Cane Creek Double Barrel CS shock is the reference for all-mountain riding and racing, and one of Santa Cruz Bikes' most versatile and popular models ever. The DBAir CS rear shock features the Cane Creek proprietary climbing mode that keeps suspension fully active while climbing ensuring better control and connection to the trail, less rider fatigue and increased power transfer. Unlike current climbing platforms, the all new Double Barrel CS provides internal climb-specific damping in both compression and rebound. 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 Bicycles 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.
