Santa Cruz Bronson Aluminum 27.5 – R-AM/Float CTD – $3999.99

Bronson Aluminum

Two decades of evolution at Santa Cruz brought us here. An entirely new frame, new wheel size and new perspective on what a 6″ travel bike can conquer. Bronson screamed onto the scene with all the discretion of a Group B rally car, ready to tear it up at enduro races around the globe thanks to the aggressive geometry, 67° head angle and 150mm of VPP travel that still manages to deliver massive uphill capability.
