Why We Like The Santa Cruz Bronson Carbon C GX Eagle AXS Mountain Bike
When the day's trail mission calls for big climbs and unknown descents, we turn to the Santa Cruz Bronson Carbon C GX Eagle AXS Mountain Bike for its ultra-versatile trail capabilities. Built from the lightweight and durable Carbon C layup, this capable trail bike features confidence-inspiring, stable geometry and a mixed wheel setup that helps us ride out bomb holes, keep it rubber side down over drops, and corner with knife-like precision. And since the Bronson is purpose-built for a mullet setup, we end up with a way better ride feel than the homemade mullet builds our buddies are riding. 150mm of VPP rear travel along with low anti-squat levels give us endless traction whether we're climbing up slick rocks or bobbing and weaving through chunder-y downhills. The longer, slacker geometry ensures we have plenty of highspeed stability to tackle technical lines, while the steep seat tube angle ensures efficient power transfer to keep us moving forward on steep climbs.
The Bronson Carbon C GX Eagle AXS kit utilizes the reliable SRAM GX Eagle AXS 12-speed electronic drivetrain for unbelievably fast shifting in everything from mud to dust and a wide gear range to help us keep the pedals turning when the climb seems vertical. The suspension duties are handled by a combination of a Fox 36 Float Performance Elite fork up front and a RockShox Super Deluxe Select+ shock, allowing us to crush through gnarly terrain with speed and confidence. A pair of durable Race Face AR Offset 30 rims are laced up to quick-engaging Industry Nine 1/1 hubs for a fast-rolling, worry-free ride, while a set of 4-piston SRAM Code RS brakes give us knife-like precision speed modulation and ample stopping power. From flow laps after work to all-day adventures in search of massive slabs, Santa Cruz Bronson Carbon C GX Eagle AXS Mountain Bike is just begging us to dive into the unknown.
*Due to a high demand in the global supply chain and bike industry since the start of the pandemic, material weight, and exact components are subject to change.
