2020 Santa Cruz Bronson Version 3 CC

Santa Cruz's most notorious thriller, the Bronson, is ready for action no matter what role it's cast into. The Bronson has the biggest personality in our range. From flat out on the trail to fully flat over a table, each new generation redefines expectations of what a 150mm bike can do.

The new lower-link mounted shock configuration opens up greater possibilities for maximum bump performance, a supportive mid-stroke, and a barely detectable bottom out. It’s like our most capable all-around bike just had a set of afterburners bolted on.

With 150mm of VPP travel on 27.5-inch wheels, the Bronson continually rides the sharp edge between agility and stability. Ideal for negotiating tech-gnar one moment and fast flowing terrain the next, the 160mm fork travel and 65-degree head angle ensure handling remains refined. Meanwhile, the redesigned, one-piece swingarm keeps the rear wheel tracking on point however twisted you get.

There’s plenty of room to run up to 2.8-inch tires on plus rims. We offer build kit options for “regular” 27.5 and Plus using 2.6 tires. It feels like the sorta big is the sweet spot between the Velcro-like traction of plus tires and the traditional feel of a supportive casing on standard-width tires.

Its versatility makes it the go-to choice for those seeking a skeleton key bike to unlock unfamiliar trails with ease.

Santa Cruz have a reputation for making some of the finest carbon fiber mountain bikes money can buy. It's well deserved. Their VPP Suspension system is neat, highly effective and tuneable allowing a different character to be designed into each model in the range, it's easy to look after too. Whilst their top of the line CC range has no expense spared, the same technology trickles down into the rest of the range at a more attainable price point. You're also covered by a lifetime warranty for complete piece of mind.
