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-size, 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 Bronson the go-to choice for those seeking a skeleton key to unlock unfamiliar trails.
