The 2019 Santa Cruz Bronson all mountain bike leads riders to ride faster and over techy terrain that might flummox a lesser bike. It’s plenty light and feels great launching off of jumps, whether on the trail or at the bike park. It’s definitely more capable than a normal trail bike; it’s slack head tube angle means it requires a bit more weight on the front wheel in corners to make it grip. What’s surprising about the Bronson is how well it rides over a myriad of terrain. It’s VPP suspension means the bike floats over techy terrain without feeling disconnected. The rear shock is tuned for greater linearity (like a coil shock) over big hits, and it’s 27.5” wheels means it is more nimble than it’s long travel intentions insist. The Bronson won’t easily keep up with it’s short-travel siblings on climbs, but the bike pedals well enough to keep the rear shock completely open without feeling sapped of energy.
Size extra large fits riders 5’11” – 6’3″.
