Perhaps you have heard rumblings around your local shops about what new Santa Cruz bikes were on their way. There had been rumors and guesses by many as to just what exactly was coming. Well, the day has come and both the Bronson and 5010 have gotten makeovers, as well have the Roubion and the Furtado from Juliana.
A few weeks ago a crew of us from the office had the pleasure of piloting the Bronson and the 5010 on the rough and tumble trails of the Pisgah National Forest. These bikes turn descents that better replicate a minefield than mountain bike trail into a two-wheeled playground, but don’t take our word for it — the 5010 is also Danny MacAskill’s trail bike of choice.
The 5010 and the Furtado offer 130mm of travel while the Bronson and the Roubion offer 150mm of travel. All models will be available in both Carbon and Aluminium and as frameset modules.
