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 C S build bumps up the performance factor with SRAM's toothy GX Eagle drivetrain, Level TL hydraulic disc brakes, and a Fox 32 Performance Step Cast fork and Float Performance DPS shock. 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. A Race Face Aeffect bar and stem combo 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.
