If in doubt, take a Bronson out. You know what's hard about choosing what model of Santa Cruz suits you? It's having to narrow down what kind of riding you want to do. But what if you don't want to be pinned down by labels? What if you want to just be a mountain biker in the broadest sense of the word? What if you want to choose how you ride rather than what to ride? If this sounds familiar, then try a Bronson. Our demo crew have a saying, 'If in doubt, take a Bronson out'. The 150mm-travel bike can go deep on any landing and the VPP suspension design makes sure that there's no wasted energy when heading back up for another go. If you value style at speed or want to have fun feeling fast, then mixed wheels (29" up front, 27.5" out back) show that the spectrum is a loop, not opposite points on a scale. The larger front wheel provides more traction and stability that'll make you feel more confident squaring off the turns and diving for the inside lines. But a 27.5-inch tire in the rear means this bike still loves getting up on the back wheel and into the air. From flat out on the trail to fully flat over a table, each generation of Bronson rider redefines expectations of what a mountain biker is.

All the Travel and MX Wheels A downhill bike that goes everywhere Seriously. The Megatower's big wheels, long travel, and tough carbon fiber chassis delivers the high-speed security traits of a downhill bike. Yet the relatively-steep seat tube angle and size-specific geo maintain the Mega's mega pedaling ability-elevating its reputation as the perfect choice for big gravity rides and DH park laps.

The bike to get lost—and found—on. Quincy is inspired by a place like no other. Nestled deep in the Sierra Mountains of Northern California is a small gold rush town where the avenues for adventure seem endless. Miles upon miles of dirt roads that lead to nowhere and everywhere. The kind of roads you want to get lost and found on. Where you don't quite know what kind of bike is best suited, and forces a constant re-think of your whole darn setup. This is Quincy terrain. A full carbon frame and fork gives where you need it and takes a beating where you need it more. From tarmac to way-off-the-map, this is a robust bike that's comfortable on or off-road all day long. Designed to adapt, Quincy is built with clearance to run wide tires on either size wheel (700c x 45mm and 650B x 2.1"). Pleasingly simple single-ring drivetrains come standard, but the frame can also accommodate a dual chainring set-up if desired. Cleverly routed hydraulic disc brakes ensure you're always in control, no matter how fast you're rolling in any conditions. Meanwhile, mounts for fenders and three water-bottle cages complete the incredibly versatile, all-conditions package. With a size range that fits rider heights from around 5'0 up to 5'9 and a geometry that perfectly balances confident handling with precision reactivity, this is a Juliana Bicycle through and through. And, like all our bikes, Quincy is spec'd with kits we feel are best suited to potential owners. This includes the Ergon SR10 women's saddle and bar widths matched to frame size for a tailored cockpit that gives Quincy that unique fit, look, and feel.
Ready To Rally The World Whether blind racing or just blindly enjoying the TRs as they come, the Roubion's MX wheel combo feels like the best mix since Aperol met spritz. A 29-inch front wheel serves up high-speed stability and high rolling confidence. Meanwhile the 27.5-inch rear wheel makes for an intuitive and highly maneuverable rear end that loves to get sideways around the most ragged of switchbacks. We're pretty sure there's no better bike to tackle alpine terrain. SRAM Eagle Transmission - stronger, better shifting, wirelessly The next generation SRAM Eagle Transmission spec'd on our CC-carbon models is a radically robust, fully integrated and interdependent wireless transmission. Built around the universal constant of the wheel axle itself, the hangerless attachment mounts directly to the frame for a stronger connection and the derailleur provides unprecedented reliability in case of impact. Shifting under load is made possible due to a combination of X-SYNC technology and cassette mapping, creating seamless shifts even during your hardest power output. The new AXS Pods are ergonomic and customizable, so shifting gears is light and intuitive. It's simply the most advanced transmission and nearly as tough as you are.
Boss Coaster is what we’d call seriously casual— designed to be low maintenance, built for comfort, but with the durability to be ridden every day for years. Sometimes, all you need is one gear and a coaster brake, and that’s just what you get. The Boss Coaster keeps it simple, so you can keep smiling. Laid-back cruiser bars and a double-sprung saddle let you keep your chill all day long, and cushy tires iron out the boardwalk and choppy roads for silky-smooth cruising.
EASY ACCESS We're super proud of the Citizen's sleek frame design. With an arcing top tube for the "Men's" frames and S-bend top and down tubes for a super-low step-through "Women's" version. In fact, we hesitate to designate either with gender specific labels because the version with the easy-access, low step-over top tube is suitable for anyone with limited hip flexibility who might be challenged to swing a leg over the rear wheel when mounting & dismounting. EASY ON THE NECK & BACK A usual complaint from new or returning riders trying to get into the cycling groove is feeling uncomfortably perched forward with too much weight on their wrists and having to crank their necks backwards just to be able to see in traffic. We specifically designed our Citizens to remedy this. The large diameter 700c wheels push handlebar height up and shorter top tubes pull handlebars closer to the saddle, all to mitigate forward lean. Our 4-inch rise handlebars sweep back at a natural hand-grasp angle with a long-quilled or angle-adjustable stem that allows for a wide range of adjustment to tune handle bar height and reach perfectly for each ride. GEARED TO GO The shifting systems on all our Citizens feature long cage rear derailleurs, full-size 48/38/28T triple-chainring cranksets (single 44t chainring for Citizen base model) and big 11-32T or 14-34T gearing in the back. This gives you the dual advantage of having fairly tall gears for controlled pedaling at speed on descents as well as really low gearing for easier pedaling uphill. It's a rider-friendly combination that's made the Citizens a perennial favorite of recreational cyclists.
Comfortable, enjoyable mobility: that's Citizen. This is the ultimate low-carbon-footprint, sightseeing machine. It's a low-impact and fun workout for new cyclists and a zero-emissions way to get around town. We can't think of a better way to be a good Citizen. Easy to look at. Easy to get on We're super proud of the Citizen's sleek frame design. With an arcing top tube for the "men's" frames and s-bend top and down tubes for a super-low step-thru 'women's" version. In fact, we hesitate to designate either with gender specific labels because the version with the easy-access, low step-over top tube is suitable for anyone with limited hip flexibility who might be challenged to swing a leg over the rear wheel when mounting & dismounting. And easy to ride When it comes to recreational riding, nothing gets more uncomfortable faster than having to pedal more weight than necessary. That is why Citizen 1, 2 & 3 are built with lightweight 6061 aluminum tubing. In fact, our aluminum Citizen frames are at least a half-pound lighter than our famous steel coda street bikes. We design comfort into the naturally stiffer ride of the aluminum tubes by specifying larger volume 38c tires and adding a few millimeters to the chainstay and wheelbase length. Ride position A usual complaint from new or returning riders trying to get into the cycling groove is feeling uncomfortably perched forward with too much weight on their wrists and having to crank their necks backwards just to be able to see in traffic. We specifically designed our Citizens to remedy this. The large diameter 700c wheels push handlebar height up and shorter top tubes pull handlebars closer to the saddle, all to mitigate forward lean. Our 4-inch rise handlebars sweep back at a natural hand-grasp angle with a long-quilled or angle-adjustable stem that allows for a wide range of adjustment to tune handle bar height and reach perfectly for each ride. Where it counts Our super plush saddle features memory foam padding (Citizen 2 & 3) or extra high-quality polyurethane padding (Citizen 1 & Citizen) for optimum support with maximum comfort. The slip-resistant suede-type top prevents sliding and the burnished side panels reduce leg friction while pedaling. Elastomer springs help soak up high resonance road vibrations. Offered in gender-specific sizes. Why 700c? So why go with a Citizen instead of an Explorer or a Hudson since they all seem to offer many of the same comfort and quality attributes? It's simple: if your riding will be primarily on the road or on smoothly graded trails, the larger diameter road-bike sized 700c Citizen wheels roll faster with less rolling resistance and roll over potholes and railroad tracks more smoothly than the 27.5" wheels of the Explorer and Hudson. Geared to go The drivetrains on our Citizen 1, 2, & 3 all feature long cage rear derailleurs, full- size 48/38/28t triple chainring cranksets, and big 11-32t or 14-34t gearing in the back. This gives you the dual advantage of having fairly tall gears for controlled pedaling at speed on descents as well as really low gearing for easier pedaling uphill. It's a rider-friendly combination that's made the Citizens a perennial favorite of recreational cyclists.
We designed our Earth Cruisers to be kinder, gentler versions of our sport comfort bikes. They're simplified with easy-to-use coaster brake drivetrains without the complications of derailleurs or hand brakes to fiddle around with. In spite of their name, they're not just for riding at the beach. They're for any rider anywhere looking for a simple, lightweight, low-maintenance, good-looking bike they can casually and comfortably pedal around town all day, every day. DIET CRUISER Many cruisers weigh well north of 40 pounds. Not so with the Earth Cruiser. Because nothing gets more uncomfortable faster than having to pedal more weight than necessary, we've pared as many grams from the Earth Cruiser as we could. Starting with the lightweight aluminum frame and a parts pick that's nearly all lightweight alloy parts. The result is a 29-pound Earth Cruiser 1 that's pure joy to pedal. LOOKS GREAT TODAY & TOMORROW Many of the parts specified on our Earth Cruisers are made of aluminum to save weight, but also to help preserve the finish of the bike. Aluminum parts include the seat post, seat clamp, stem, rims, front hub, kickstand and crank arms (EC3 and EC1). We've even specified a silver-plated chain on the EC3 and EC1 that doesn't just look great, it's way more rust-resistant than standard carbon steel chains. COMFORTABLE STEERING Our cruise-control handlebars were designed to promote a comfortable no-weight-on-the-wrists riding position. With just the right sweep and rise, these handlebars meet the rider's hands without requiring a forward bend at the waist, relieving pressure on the back of the neck. Handlebar width has also been carefully calculated so that when steered from left to right it does not contact the rider, unlike many other cruiser-style handlebars. MEMORY FOAM SADDLE Our Earth Cruiser saddles are not just great looking, they're extraordinarily comfortable as well. Though the size and shape is clearly generous, we've also molded a channel into the top of the saddle to relieve sitting pressure and use high-quality memory or polyurethane foam for the supporting mattress. Memory foam was originally developed by NASA and is now used extensively for medical applications. It is much denser than the foams ordinarily used in saddles, which makes it more supportive and more comfortable. SMOOTH ROLLING TIRES Our comfort tires have been designed to roll smoothly on pavement, but offer a large 2.125" footprint so that rides on park paths can be managed securely. The additional benefit of that big footprint is larger air volume in the tire and tube, which results in lower air pressure for a more comfortable ride than tires with smaller volumes and higher air pressures. NO-SLIP PEDALS Our Earth Cruisers pedals offer a thermoplastic elastomer insert on both sides of the pedal surface that keeps shoes and sandals from slipping when soles or pedals get wet. These inserts also make barefoot pedaling comfortable.
Think of our Hudson as part Explorer and part Earth Cruiser. Capable but cool. Casual but on it. We blended the flowing curves and shaped tubes of seemingly disparate platforms like our carbon Dakota 29’ers and our aluminum DXT’s and came up with a smart frame design that rides comfortably, casually and efficiently while making a bold statement all at the same time. Hudson Lite When it comes to recreational riding on a so-called comfort bike, nothing gets more uncomfortable faster than having to pedal more weight than necessary. Which is why the Hudson Sport is built with lightweight 6061 aluminum tubing. We design comfort into the naturally stiffer ride of the aluminum tubes by specifying large volume tires and lengthening the chainstays and wheelbase for a stretch-limo sort of ride. Easy Rider Specially designed for flat-footed starts and stops. With your weight evenly distributed over the crank for comfortable and efficient pedaling on the saddle or off. The Hudson’s laid back seat tube and lowered bottom bracket height allows riders to position their saddles for efficient leg extension and still easily reach the ground while seated for balance when stopped. The longer chainstays and wheelbase in tandem with the lower center of gravity offers a very smooth, stable ride. Get Fit All frame sizes offer an extra-long head tube and hi- rise handlebars for a comfortable, upright ride position. Where's The Other Brake Lever? The SureStop braking system simplifies stopping by requiring only one brake lever to operate both front & rear brakes. It makes riding safer too by reducing the risk of front wheel lock-up. SureStop uses the momentum of the rear wheel to actively modulate the front brake, enabling smooth, controlled stopping. With only one hand! Best In Class Comfort Our super-plush saddle features Memory Foam padding for optimum support with maximum comfort. The slip-resistant suede-like top prevents sliding and the burnished side panels reduce leg friction while pedaling. Elastomer springs also help to soak up road vibrations. Offered in gender-specific sizes. Pump Up The Volume Our Hudson tires are ready to roll, coming in a tall 27.5” diameter with a bump-chewing 2.35” width. The big benefit of that footprint is larger air volume in the tire and tube, which results in lower air pressure for a more comfortable ride than tires with smaller volumes and higher air pressures. Clean And Simple The Hudson’s alloy crankset features an outer-ring chainguard, with another full-length chainguard running the length of the chain from seatstay to chainring. So socks, slacks, skirts and dresses are well protected from the chain. - 6061 TIG-welded aluminum frame - Hi-tensile unicrown fork - Alex DC25 alloy double-wall wheel set - 7-speed Shimano Altus components
