Light enough to scorch hot laps and tough enough to endure a long-distance beating, the Blur does it all without compromise. No matter how demanding your next XC endeavor, the Blur is ready to go full gas, 24/7. At just 2060g this is Santa Cruz's lightest ever 100mm full suspension frame. The ultra-efficient VPP suspension design, complemented by a dual remote lockout and super stiff carbon frame, means you’ve got rocket-like acceleration on demand. The one-piece carbon VPP rear triangle shares a similar twin upright architecture to Santa Cruz's World Cup-winning downhill bikes. Paired with a one-piece carbon front end it delivers lateral stiffness and tracking ability you just don’t see on featherweight bikes of this genre.
The Blur Carbon CC X01 TR build finds the sweet spot in high-end performance and adds a little trail swagger with a longer travel fork and Reverb dropper post. SRAM's X01 Eagle drivetrain and Level TLM brakes offer intuitive shifting and braking response so you can focus on the trail ahead, while the lightened Fox 34 110mm fork and Float shock ensure no amount of energy is wasted as you hammer toward your goals. You get to choose which wheelset suits your style of riding best: either Race Face AR rims paired to DT 350 hubs or Santa Cruz's own Reserve Carbon. Both are wrapped in Maxxis Aspen tires for serious speed on XC tracks. An SCB XC Carbon Flat bar and Syntace LiteForce stem put the finishing touch on responsive control.
Confidence-inspiring geometry and components worth their salt allow you to take those sketchy overtaking lines that are the difference between getting on the podium or ‘winning’ the wooden spoon.
