This year’s Gear of the Year is the bike made by Santa Cruz Bicycles which is the Bronson CC on which Danny MacAskill got up the mountain.
With a 67° head angle, 150mm of VPP™ travel and 27.5″ wheels, the Bronson screamed onto the Enduro World Series scene like a Group B rally car.
The winning formula is Bronson’s ability to deliver massive uphill capability too, thanks to a balanced geometry and efficient pedaling platform that speeds you between liason stages.
