Zipping up fire roads is more fun when we have the responsive and aggressive Santa Cruz Blur Carbon S Trail Complete Mountain Bike underneath us. This zippy cross-country bike has us riding further and faster than usual while out in the woods. The trail version of the bike receives the slacker and longer treatment that’s needed for the gnarly cross-country race courses seen today. The progressive design mixed with long-travel suspension makes this a do-it-all machine whether we’re looking to get to the top of the local leaderboards or out on long endurance-focused race events. Spec on the Blur lets us enjoy ultra-reliable components that are easily upgradeable without breaking the bank. The SRAM GX group is fully compatible with the rest of the Eagle lineup, so replacement parts aren’t a pain to find. Reliable RaceFace hoops laced to DT Swiss hubs have us rolling over new terrain, and the competition. The Maxxis Rekon Race tires are specced in the 2. 4in ”Wide Trail’ option, giving us more contact patch for better grip and lower rolling resistance. The tires are tubeless out of the box, and Stans No Tube’s Tire Sealent makes sure our rides won’t stop due to pinch flats or small punctures. *Due to unprecedented demand in the global supply chain and the bike industry over the last 18 months, material weight and exact components are subject to change. We are working diligently to keep tech specs updated, and any adjustments will be minor. If you have any questions, reach out to a Gearhead by chatting online or calling 1-888-276-7130.
