The Cascade Components V4 Bronson link has the big bike energy you have been looking for.
The stock V4 Bronson suspension has been improved over the V3 Bronson, but we figured we would throw even more progression at it for excellent traction and bottom out resistance. A Cascade Components linkage adds travel, progression, and shock tuning options to your V4 Bronson. The added progression helps aggressive riders achieve a suspension setup that better balances small bump sensitivity and traction with bottom out resistance, which allows for an improved ride and superb pedaling performance.
Our integrated flip chip allows you to change your suspension travel and progression while keeping the bike's geometry the same as the stock linkage in the low position. We have designed the linkage around the stock size 230x60mm shock on the bike, however other options exist as well. In the Short Travel (ST) setting, travel is increased from 150mm to 160mm and progression is bumped up from 27% to 34%. If you are looking for a bit more, the link's Long Travel (LT) setting increases the rear travel to 170mm while progression is brought to 36%. If that still is not enough for you, a 230x65mm shock can be used to increase rear wheel travel all the way up to 180mm with 42% progression. With that amount of ramp, coil shocks work spectacularly, but we've also ridden it with air shocks with great results. This results in a mixed wheel size bike that competes with the current generation of Nomad.
This link takes a great bike and makes it more versatile: go do some pedal laps at your favorite trails or put on a 65mm coil shock and keep up with the downhill bikes at the bike park - it will do it all.
