Here's what others have to say...

5 5

It's light, long, low, and slack. Handling is very close to the SB-75 (and the SB-95, for that matter), but the steering is a touch more relaxed. As for Switch Infinity, the ride is similar to the Switch Link-equipped SB's, but the SB5 is noticeably smoother when the shuttle changes direction (compressing past the sag point). Basically, it's the same formula as the other trail-oriented SuperBikes, just a bit more potent.

TL:DR; it's awesome-- seriously, what did you expect?

The Bronson isn't for everyone. Designed for the Syndicate's Enduro World Series campaign, it's built to as a precision tool for riding as fast as possible in challenging terrain. It's more composed at speed than the shorter travel 5010, but it lacks the trail-erasing feel of the Nomad. Instead, there's sufficient feedback to feel your tires gripping, and it takes the work out of boosting trail features. It's fast and responsive, and handles best when ridden with conviction. Of all the bikes I rode in 2013, the Bronson is my favorite, with its closest competition being Yeti's stellar SB66c. Many (most?) riders will be better served by the more conservative 5010, but if you climb fast so you can race back down, the Bronson is a cool, calculated trail killer with very few equals.

The 5010 has quickly become a staff favorite, and for a very good reason-- it rips. Up or down, through turns or over doubles, it responds instinctively to rider input, while maintaining composure beyond what you'd expect from a five-inch trail bike. My only gripe is that when pushed to the limit, a 5010 can overwhelm the flexy 32mm forks they're typically built with. Gravity fiends will prefer the Bronson for its longer wheelbase and extra travel, but the 5010 is a bike that any mountain biker will feel at home on, with little or no adjustment period.
