The Santa Cruz Bronson is back for the 4th time in its most fun and rideable version to date and it means business in the front, while it’s all party in the back. Don’t call it a mullet but the mixed wheel setup means the Bronson is a bike that’s built to be ridden regardless of the terrain or session. The Bronson means you get to decide how you ride rather than thinking about what to ride. The 150mm-travel bike can go deep on any landing and the VPP™ suspension design makes sure that there’s no wasted energy when heading back up for another go.
The Bronson Carbon C S MX means if you value style at speed or want to have fun feeling fast, then mixed wheels (29” up front, 27.5” out back) show that the spectrum is a loop not opposite points on a scale. The larger front wheel provides more traction and stability that’ll make you feel more confident squaring off the turns and diving for the inside lines. But a 27.5-inch tyre in the rear means this bike still loves getting up on the back wheel and into the air.
From flat out on the trail to fully flat over a table, each generation of Bronson rider redefines expectations of what a mountain biker is.

150mm VPP™ travel
The 150mm-travel bike has enough travel to go deep on any landing and the VPP™ suspension design makes sure that there’s no wasted energy when heading back up for another go.
Mix of both worlds
The mixed wheel configuration of a 29-inch wheel up front provides traction and stability, while the 27.5″ rear wheel allows for quick back wheel steering and lifting.
