Santa Cruz Bicycles just rolled out a new crop of bikes that are a bit more wallet friendly than the top-tier carbon models you’ve already seen. There are new aluminium versions of the Bronson, Tallboy and 5010. There’s now also a complete range of Carbon C models- Bronson, Tallboy, Hightower, Stigmata to name a few. The launch brings the price point on complete carbon bikes down a good bit.
As for the clicking and whirring bits, both Santa Cruz and Juliana are offering up new build kit options at both the high end (SRAM Eagle at the XO and XX1 levels) and the low end (SRAM NX). That’s the quick and pithy intro.
Santa Cruz is now offering the latest-generation Bronson, Tallboy and 5010 models in aluminium. Frame-only options will sell for $1,899. Complete aluminium models will have entry-level prices ranging from $2,599 (5010 and Tallboy) to $2,999 (Bronson).
