Santa Cruz joins Cycle 360

As a local Isle of Man bikeshop growing and evolving all the time, we are proud to announce: Santa Cruz joins Cycle 360 as a brand-new bike brand! Santa Cruz joins the already world-class portfolio of bike brands at Cycle 360 including: Cube, Specialized, Cannondale, Pinarello, Merida and Haibike.

The Californian-born brand, Santa Cruz oozes cool with its strong portfolio of compatriots in skateboarding and surfing. You’d be mistaken thinking the brand, founded by two skateboarders in 1993, does just skateboards and surfboards though as Santa Cruz Bicycles’ focus is on producing high-end full suspension mountain bikes.

Why Santa Cruz

Category-leading downhill, cross country, and electric bikes, Santa Cruz Bicycles is a manufacturer of high end mountain bikes based in Santa Cruz, California, sponsoring the ‘Santa Cruz Syndicate’, a downhill racing team.

We chose to have Santa Cruz join our bikeshop because YOU love the brand. The high-end, premium brand has a special and unique following in the mountain bike and enduro world, amongst male and females, so bringing the boutique brand to the Isle of Man, where the downhill scene is growing and more and more riders are loving the discipline,  was super important to us.

If in doubt, take a Bronson out 

Santa Cruz’s 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” front, 27.5” rear) 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.

A full detailed spec on the Bronson, can be found on our online bikeshop: Learn more about the Santa Cruz Bronson.

The Heckler, it goes on and on and on and on…  

The Heckler has a huge interchangeable battery (720Wh), which allows riders to access previously unreachable trails, unlock less-used trails and cramming more into less time. It just goes on and on and on and on! 

Plus the legendary Santa Cruz fit, finish and quality construction put this into a league of its own. The frame, bearings and optional Reserve wheels come with a lifetime warranty and any service is easy to do with our Rider Support pledge.
