Santa Cruz Bronson


The Santa Cruz Bronson is one of the most revolutionary and recognizable mountain bikes out there. It set the standard for fun and performance in the full-suspension 27.5 category, and it stands to reason that the third generation would build on the impressive Bronson legacy, while seamlessly taking it to the next level. One ride on the new Bronson is all it takes to feel the subtle evolution and noticeable performance gains built into the new platform. More, better everything. From the bottom of the mountain to the top and back down, this bike never feels out of its element.

Rider Feedback

"The Bronson is my bike. Everything about it speaks directly to me, and the way I want to ride. It Gives me the capability to climb gnarly trails for hours a time, or to drying up long fire roads for miles, while not giving up anything on the downhill. For me, I love the feel and character of 27.5” wheels - even with the understanding of the benefits of 29” - the Hightower LT or Hightower never won my heart quite like the Bronson. With the shorter-travel 5010 and longer travel Nomad on either side, the Bronson just fills its role perfectly." -Nick P
