Product Description

2017 Santa Cruz Bicycles Bronson 2.0 Carbon R1 Complete Mountain Bike

 

Continuously refined for all-mountain mastery, the 2017 Santa Cruz Bronson 2.0 Carbon R1 Complete Mountain bike competently charges down technical trails with menacing rocks and no-fall lines. However, instead of being relegated to lift-accessed downhills and shuttle runs like many of its longer-travel brethren, the Bronson easily powers itself up steep hillsides with a well-balanced geometry taking cues from the Nomad. Realizing this, it's really no surprise to see the Bronson 2.0 excelling at enduro events where downhill confidence is of utmost importance, yet uphill efficiency is certainly meaningful.

This particular version sports Santa Cruz's C-level carbon for an exceptionally stiff bike with snappy acceleration and efficient climbing prowess. The 2017 Bronson 2.0 retains a 66 degree head tube angle, roomy cockpit, and short chainstays for conquering descents and railing around berms. 150mm of VPP3 suspension soaks up the biggest, baddest hits without wallowing under acceleration needed for quick uphill bursts and out-of-saddle sprints. The 74-degree seat tube angle lends a well-balanced feel for long climbs by efficiently placing power to the pedals. New for 2017, the addition of a 110mm Boost thru-axle reinforces the front wheel for improved tracking across rock gardens and root-latticed singletrack.

The big story with the Bronson 2.0 is the revised VPP3 suspension, which features a stiffer box-section upper link and cleanly tucked away lower link that prevents damaging rock strikes. This revised suspension platform benefits from increased small-bump sensitivity for better traction over roots and rocks. Mid-stroke progressiveness is enhanced, preventing you from unnecessarily blowing through travel. And to ensure longevity, double-sealed pivots prevent dirt and trail debris from compromising the suspension.

This well-equipped R1 kit includes reliable components that keep you riding confidently with minimal hassle. Overhauling the front fork, Santa Cruz includes FOX's Rhythm 150mm fork with micro-adjustability between Open, Medium, and Firm settings. Another new addition, the R1 kit ditches the previous Shimano 2x drivetrain for SRAM's NX 1x11 drivetrain. This 1x11 drivetrain offers a wide range of usable gears without a pesky front derailleur to worry about. Rounding out this package, the WTB STP i23 wheelset is tubeless-ready for optimal traction and bump compliance across rugged trails.
