Bronson Carbon CC 27.5+ X01 Eagle Complete Mountain Bike by Santa Cruz Bicycles
We'd like to believe the original Bronson was instrumental in swaying the preconceived notions of riders skeptical of the so-called "tweener" 27. 5-inch wheel size back in 2013, seeing just how damn capable the bike was everywhere from lengthy rides in the mountains to enduro race courses and even blasting a few laps at the local bike park.

To be specific, Santa Cruz lengthened the reach by approximately 15 millimeters per size for a more confident, comfortable feel at higher speeds, plus a one centimeter lower standover height for a better fit with shorter riders.

These were numbers that you'd only see on a freeride or mini-DH bike just a few years ago, meaning you'll have tons of confidence bombing those technical descents littered with steep drop-offs and nasty rock sections. Another significant change to the latest Bronson lies in a r...
