Living Up To The Hype

When we introduced Bronson, it took the market by storm, redefining what people expected from a 150mm trail bike. Equally at home in the Trans-Provence as it was on The Ridge, updating and improving it was going to be no small feat.

The most visible upgrade is the completely new VPP® link arrangement.  The lower link tucks neatly above the bottom bracket, fully-recessed and protected from impacts.  Meanwhile the box-section upper link now mounts cleanly to the top tube and enhances lateral stiffness as a result. Shock rate’s been refined in the process too, delivering greater small bump sensitivity and a more progressive mid-stroke.

Geometry has also evolved subtly to meet demand from riders for a bike of this ilk.  The seat tube angle’s been steepened, placing the rider right above the cranks and perfectly in position to lay down the power. Meanwhile a one-degree slacker 66 degree head tube angle combines with a 20-25mm longer top tube and shorter chainstay length to create an evermore rally-ready geometry than its predecessor.

The tool for that back country mission you’ve always planned

A laser sharp, agile backcountry trail whip that corners on rails and loves to pop and jib, the 5010 is a bike handler's dream. As at home on a backcountry mission with Steve Peat as it is hopping fences with Danny MacAskill, the 130mm-travel 5010 sports a short chainstay length and low BB height for a uniquely playful character with an insatiable appetite for negotiating steep, technical climbs. When it’s time to descend, the bike’s 67-degree head tube angle, and generous reach/short stem combo equate to precise, confident handling. The top-tube-mounted, box-section upper link is a leap forward in durability and stiffness, and the lower link rests cleanly out of the way, dramatically improving clearance and minimizing rock strikes.

Bike choice can be a numbers game, but if your game is conquering epic trails then 5010 is the only number you need know.
