Santa Cruz Announces 2019 Bronson

The Bronson has the biggest personality in our range. From flat out on the trail to fully flat over a table, each new generation redefines expectations of what a 150mm bike can do.

●  150mm VPP® rear travel
– Lower-link mounted shock
– Linearly-progressive leverage ratio
– It’s still VPP®- two short, counter-rotating links that connect the front and rear triangle to make a stout frame. Easily serviceable, reliable, lifetime bearing replacement
– VPP®is a versatile design that allows us to fine-tune suspension to suit the character of any model of bicycle, from XC to downhill, and everything in-between. The upper- and lower-link VPP gives us even more options when designing the suspension to suit the intended purpose of a bicycle. Like all Santa Cruz VPP bikes, the mantra is squished good, pedal good, no breaky.
