Despite its slacker head tube and longer geometry, the back end configuration helps the Bronson 2. 0 pop over cruxes and maintain speed across hard pack. The Bronson 2. 0 also has the latest VPP suspension system represents the latest update to Santa Cruz's classic VPP. Where the old suspension curve described a deep "U," the new VPP's curve resembles a flattened check mark, with less dramatic ramping on either end of the arc. The results are that, during the initial stroke, the Bronson 2. 0 boasts increased small bump compliance to keep the tires glued to the trail for more traction while climbing across lumpy trails and root lattices. It also maintains its predecessor's firm feel during accelerations while jockeying for position in a mass start or a finishing sprint. The ramp-up arc ...
