A bike for every ride.

As fabled "quiver of one" bikes get ever longer-legged, the limits of some suspension designs start to show through. Not so with the Santa Cruz Bicycles Bronson Carbon CC, though. The Bronson’s 150mm of travel is controlled by a highly-refined Virtual Pivot Point (VPP) suspension design. These counter-rotating links serve to balance pedaling forces and trail input in a manner that provides a progressive trip through the travel and a firm pedaling platform.

Focusing on VPP takes care of a lot of what we like about the Bronson, but that’s selling the carbon wizards at Santa Cruz a bit short. Santa Cruz constructs each bike’s front and rear triangles as single pieces, rather than a series of bonded parts, and wraps carbon around all of the junctures to ensure continuous fibers to dissipate the load placed on the frame. On top of that, Santa Cruz frames are just as smooth inside as they are outside, due to an extremely high level of compaction in the molds. This ensures there are no air bubbles in the layers, and no surprises on the trails.

The Bronson CC is spec’d smartly with a custom-tuned FOX Float CTD shock with the ultra-smooth, ultra-durable Kashima coating. You’ll find a 142x12mm thru-axle out back, a "mixed tapered" (ZS44/EC49) headset, and user-serviceable grease ports in all the pivots. Oh, and a normal, threaded, 73mm bottom bracket.

2015 Santa Cruz Bronson, best bike ever!

"Brett" with Competitive Cyclist totally hooked me up on my 2015 SC Bronson. The bike arrived in MINT condition and no adjustments needed at all. On my 1st ride I noticed how easy everything was, very smooth and solid. I've put over 100 miles on it and absolutely no complaints. My 1st ride: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2SEFWuY6by4

Fun and Fast!

I have had the opportunity of riding this bike several times and love it. For a long travel bike it is extremely efficient on the trail, climbs well and rips downhill. Probably its best attribute is its balanced feel on the trail-from front to back and never noticed the suspension bottoming out. The suspension has a very controlled feeling and makes the ride quality buttery smooth. Whether you are racing or joy riding its definitely a bike that will leave a smile on your face and i highly recommend it.

I work for CC and if you have any specific questions please feel free to contact me direct. I can be reached at (801)736-6396 x 4074 or wbranham@competitivecyclist.com.
