It appears to be a Santa Cruz Bronson, which coincidentally is what I was riding. Mine is green, but the magenta is the other color it comes in. Assuming it is carbon fiber and depending on the component build it comes in somewhere in the $6.5 - 8.5k range. He's changed out the handlebars for something narrower. The stock bars are 760mm, in line with the "new" geometry for all-mountain type bikes: ultra wide bars, short stem, slack head tube angle and shorter chainstays. Stock, the bike comes in at 27.5 lbs and can be easily lifted and carried. It is tubeless and can be ridden at pretty low pressure. He generates a tremendous amount of vertical hope with the tire pressure and the rear suspension, but he can hop several feet in the air easily on just about any rig. There's one video of him hopping on top of a phone booth.

Select the satin black/magenta to see if it is what he is riding, dark green to see mine.

We are, as I have said, one equation short. Keynes
