Long, low, slack, and Santa Cruz. The Bronson CC is about 280g lighter than the less expensive C version without compromising stiffness or strength. Boost 148 dropouts, SRAM XXI, this edition has an ENVE wheel upgrade. One of the best 150mm travel bikes out there! Head angle 65.9 degrees, bottom bracket height 336 mm.
"When we introduced Bronson, it took the market by storm, redefining what people expected from a 150mm trail bike. Equally at home in the Trans-Provence as it was on The Ridge, updating and improving it was going to be no small feat. The most visible upgrade is the completely new VPP link arrangement. The lower link tucks neatly above the bottom bracket, fully-recessed and protected from impacts. Meanwhile, the box-section upper link now mounts cleanly to the top-tube and enhances lateral stiffness as a result. Shock rate’s been refined in the process too, delivering greater small bump sensitivity and a more progressive mid-stroke. Geometry has also evolved subtly to meet demand for a bike of this ilk. The seat tube angle’s been steepened, placing the rider right above the cranks and perfectly in position to lay down the power. Meanwhile, a one-degree slacker 66 degree head tube angle combines with a 20-25mm longer top tube and shorter chainstay length to create an even more rally-ready geometry than its predecessor. This CC-level carbon frame is every bit as stiff and strong as our C-level frame, but weighs about 280 grams less, due to the use of some lighter, stronger, and more expensive carbon fiber. Using this material in key places allowed us to use less material overall, which is what shaves off more than half a pound from the frame. SRAM's XX1 1x11 drivetrain shifts with fast-moving accuracy and race-ready dependability. Top it off with a carbon Santa Cruz handlebar, Easton and RaceFace components, and a Reverb Stealth dropper, and you're set to take the trails by storm."
Original MSRP was $9650 (including ENVE wheelset).
