Le chef de meute des rats

Roulé par Ratboy depuis le jour où il a été conçu, le Bronson a la plus forte personnalité de notre gamme. Aussi à l'aise à bloc dans les chemins qu'en whip au-dessus d'une table, chaque génération redéfinie ce qu'on peut faire avec un vélo de 150mm de débattement.

La nouvelle configuration d'amortisseur monté sur la biellette inférieure ouvre encore plus le champs des possibilités pour plus de performance, un meilleur support d'amortissement mi-course et un talonnage quasiment imperceptible. C'est comme si l'un de nos vélos les plus polyvalent s'était vu installer un turbo. 

Avec son débattement VPP de 150 mm, ses roues de 27,5 pouces et son angle de chasse à 65 degrés, le Bronson propose le parfait équilibre entre agilité et stabilité. Parfait pour alterner les sentiers tortueux et techniques et les pistes roulantes et rapides grâce à la suspension VPP polyvalente, à la fourche dotée d’un débattement de 160 mm et à sa précision affinée. Le bras oscillant entièrement repensé avec ses double haubans verticaux vous permet de ne jamais dévier de votre trajectoire, quelles que soient les conditions.

Il y a même la place de monter des pneus de 2,8 pouces sur les jantes Plus. Nous proposons des kits de montage en option pour les roues en 27,5” : « classique » et Plus avec des pneus de 2,6”. Cette option semble offrir le bon compromis entre l’adhérence type Velcro des gros pneus et les sensations plus classiques d’une carcasse rigide des pneus de largeur standard.

Support technique

The geometry chart shows two settings- how do I adjust that?

There's a "flip chip" on the lower link where the shock mounts.  Just remove the lower shock bolt and flip the chips to the setting you desire

Can I mount a chainguide to my bike?

Yes, this bike is equipped with ISCG-05 tabs for easy chainguide mounting. Most chainguides on the market that are made for this standard should work.

Can I put a front derailleur on?

No, this bike is not compatible with front derailleurs.  

I want to put the shock from my old bike on there, can I do that?

We always recommend the stock shock, as we've spent a lot of time tuning for each particular frame. But if you must, these are the specifics you need to keep in mind:
210x55 Metric shock
30x8mm rear hardware (bearing compatible) 20x8 front hardware
Note- Fox Float X2 and Cane Creek Double Barrel Air will not fit in the Bronson/Roubion 

Is this bike coil shock compatible?

A coil shock will fit in the Bronson, but we recommend an air shock. While progressive, the suspension is biased more towards air shocks and not quite progressive enough to work well with a coil in our opinion.  

What kind of headset does this bike use?

This bike uses integrated headset cups. The upper up is 41mm and the lower cup is 52mm. The SHIS name is IS 41/28.6 IS 52/40.

What kind of rear brake mount does it use?

This bike uses a 180mm post mount. You cannot run a smaller rotor than that. If using 180mm rotor, your caliper will bolt straight to the mount. For 200 or 203 rotors you will need a 20mm or 23mm Post Mount adapter

What size seatpost does the Nomad/Bronson use?

31.6mm.  We spec/recommend the Reverb without the Connectamajig to maximize the amount of seatpost insertion available.  

What's the difference between the "Plus" version and the "regular" version?

The Bronson will fit up to 27.5x2.8" tires, but we sell it in two configurations:
"Normal" configuration comes with 2.4" rear and 2.5" front tires on 30mm rims. This setup will offer the most precise handling, and is your best bet if you see yourself wanting to use heavier duty tires (Double Down, DH casing, etc).
"Plus" configuration comes with 2.6" tires front and rear, on 35-37mm rims (depending on kit). These tires offer a good combination of grip/cushion without giving up too much in the way of support and precision. The rims will also work excellently with 2.8" tires if you're after the true rock-crawling Plus experience.  

Where can I demo the newest model of this bike?

We’ll have the newest version available for demo at the Factory in Santa Cruz, California. We also suggest contacting your local Santa Cruz retailer to check for demo availability in your area.

Won't my BB be too high if I put 2.8" tires on my bike?

Thanks to the flip-chip on the link, you can adjust the bb height to account for the different tire diameters. You can achieve the same bb height with the plus configuration as you do with the standard one.
