What's new on the 2022 Santa Cruz Bronson?

There are a few key changes to the 2022 Bronson that make it even wilder and more fun than ever. Check them out below.

The new 2022 Bronson absolutely rips

MX Wheels (29/27.5)

Designed for maximum fun, the 29er front wheel eats up rocks and roots for great descending ability, while the 27.5" rear wheel retains the Bronson's legendary flickability.

Size-Specific Geometry

The Bronon's chainstays and seat tube angles are now size-specific, meaning that whether you're tall or small you'll get the same killer ride quality.

Roomier & rowdier

The reach is 15mm longer, the stack is 20mm higher, and the head tube is slacker at 64.5°. All that means you'll be more confident on descents and in the air.
