Bronson Carbon R Mountain Bike by Santa Cruz Bicycles
The Bronson is one of the first bikes we think about when we envision the perfect all-mountain machine, seeing it's equally as happy exploring smooth, flowy trails as it is tackling a steep and rocky enduro stage. The first generation captured the hearts of riders back in 2013 right as enduro was gaining some real traction. Now in its third generation, the Bronson is more capable than ever thanks to 6-inches of VPP travel and totally refined geometry. That being said, it's still a bike that's happy to sweat out the climbs for hours at a time when you've really gotta earn your turns to get to the fun part. And that's what makes this bike so great--these traits combined with the responsiveness and playfulness of the 27. 5in wheels make for a solid helping of pure fun. The third-generation Bronson is longer and slacker than the previous generation for added stability on steep, fast trails. That being said, this redesign doesn't significantly alter its all-around versatility, meaning it's still great for the rider that desires the monster truck plushness of a slack, long-travel rig while having fun on trail systems with big climbs and high-speed descents. 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 centimeter lower standover height for a better fit with shorter riders. The head tube angle drops from the previous generation's already slack 66 degrees to an even slacker 65. 4 degrees in its highest setting, complete with a flip-chip that slackens it out even further to a bike park-friendly 65. 1 degrees. 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 reconfigured VPP suspension platform. Instead of relying on upper-link driven desig...

These are mountains of the imagination.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
