Bronson Carbon C GX Eagle AXS Reserve Mountain Bike
Why We Like The Santa Cruz Bronson Carbon C GX Eagle AXS Reserve Mountain Bike
Whether we're heading out on trails unknown or racing in the local enduro series, the Santa Cruz Bronson Carbon C GX Eagle AXS Reserve Mountain Bike is at the top of our list of ultra-versatile trail rippers. Constructed with a durable Carbon C layup for the perfect blend of stiffness and responsiveness, this highly-capable trail bike features a stable yet playful geometry purpose-built around a mixed-wheel setup for riding out bomb holes, sending side hits, and cornering with knife-like precision. The longer, slacker geometry ensures stability at speed for high-speed technical lines, while a steep seat-tube angle makes pedaling feel like less of a chore. The VPP rear linkage is bolstered by 150mm of rear travel and low anti-squat levels, giving us endless traction on everything from slick, root-covered climbs to gnarly, dust-laden descents.
This specific Bronson build utilizes the perfect blend of reliable, wallet-friendly components with high-end Reserve carbon wheels for a kit worthy of everything from big days at the bike park to a full season of enduro racing. A 12-speed SRAM GX Eagle AXS electronic drivetrain takes care of the shifting duties with speed and precision. A combination of a 160mm Fox 36 Float Performance Elite fork up front and a RockShox Super Deluxe Select+ shock in the rear allow us to smash through gnarly terrain with confidence, while a set of durable and lightweight Reserve 30|HD carbon rims are laced up to Industry Nine 1/1 hubs for a worry-free, responsive ride. And when we find ourselves in sections a bit over our heads, a set of 4-piston SRAM Code RS brakes help us stop on a dime. The Santa Cruz Bronson Carbon C GX Eagle AXS Reserve Mountain Bike brings the mixed-wheel setup to the enduro game and shows us that a mullet can truly be a high-performance machine.
