One of the most stylish and animated riders in the world is Josh ‘ratboy’ Bryceland. And in the past couple years, he’s expanded his stratospheric range by earning some World Cup DH wins. He’s had to resist his natural urge to go sideways all the time and actually point the bike directly downhill and go faster than anyone else.

Such are the attributes for the new Santa Cruz Bronson as well. It is visually stunning with clean, refined lines and colors but it also has all the proper engineering to go fast on corners and rocks.
