2017 Santa Cruz Bicycles Bronson 2.0 Carbon S Complete Mountain Bike


Pushing the design envelope with a more aggressive stance, the Santa Cruz Bronson 2.0 Carbon S Complete Mountain Bike offers unflappable confidence when you’re rallying across technical trails in a blur of gravity-assisted speed. Revised with an updated geometry and 150mm of VPP3 suspension, the Bronson 2.0 follows a progressive trajectory towards slacker head tube angles, lower bottom brackets, longer top tubes, and stiffer rear ends.

More relaxed than ever, the head tube angle slackens to 66 degrees for high-speed composure. The longer top tube/shorter stem combo equates to stability on descents and a roomier cockpit, with shorter chainstays for quicker handling. Dropping the bike for a low-slung feel, the lowered bottom bracket is immediately noticeable when you’re negotiating turns at speed. Add in a 148mm Boost thru-axle at the rear for uncompromising stiffness when you’re holding a line through dicey rock gardens and accelerating out of corners.

The Bronson 2.0 retains 150mm of travel for a well-balanced feel that’s ready to attack widely varying terrain—from rolling singletrack in the foothills to slabby desert plateaus, no dirt is safe. The big story is the revised VPP3 suspension, which features a stiffer box-section upper link and a cleanly hidden lower link that reduces the likelihood of damage from rock strikes. The revised suspension also benefits from increased small-bump sensitivity for extra traction across rocks and roots.

Santa Cruz’s C-level carbon frame provides burly stiffness and uncompromising durability for riders pushing their bikes to the absolute limit. In fact, it’s every bit as stiff and strong as the top-flight CC-level carbon, albeit with a claimed weight penalty of around 280g. The payoff comes in the parts spec equipped on this S build. Instead of tossing all your hard-earned cash into the lightest possible carbon frame, you get a nice blend of components that complement the bike’s aggressive nature.

Up front, the 150mm Pike RC soaks up small bumps with a satisfyingly supple feel while absorbing bigger hits with impressive control. The GX 1×11 drivetrain features a massive 10-42t cassette for a wide range of usable gears without the need for a pesky front derailleur. Adding to the bike’s aggressive persona, the Reverb Stealth dropper offers on-the-fly seat adjustments with the simple push of a button. Add in the reliable stopping power of SRAM Guide R brakes for a well-rounded build that’s ready for anything the trail throws your way.
