Santa Cruz Bronson – 650b & 150mm Travel

The Bronson is Santa Cruz’s first attempt at a 650b wheeled bike and it has gotten a lot of attention. Check out some detailed pictures and a video inside.

Steve Peat navigated his Bronson on the Sea Otter Classic dual slalom race to a 2nd place which is no small feat.  Cedric Gracia raced the Sea Otter ‘downhill’ on his. The Bronson is the first 27.5/650b wheel’d Santa Cruz and it’s clearly a versatile bike.

The Bronson is available in a carbon model as well as an aluminum option.

We posted some additional details on the Bronson earlier that you can investigate for more details.

Josh Bryceland and the Santa Cruz Syndicate edited a quick video of them onboard the Bronson earlier this year that was pretty good as well if you missed it.
