2023 Santa Cruz Bronson 4.1 C

If in doubt, take a Bronson out

You know what’s hard about choosing what model of Santa Cruz suits you? It’s having to narrow down what kind of riding you want to do. But what if you don’t want to be pinned down by labels? What if you want to just be a mountain biker in the broadest sense of the word? What if you want to choose how you ride rather than what to ride? If this sounds familiar, then try a Bronson.

Our demo crew have a saying, ‘If in doubt, take a Bronson out’. 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.

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 tire 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.

Santa Cruz

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.
