The Blur is the lightest and fastest bike to ever come out of the Santa Cruz factory, and it sports a new suspension platform that’s appropriately named Superlight. Superlight allows for a trimmed-down carbon frame and provides suspension kinematics that translate all of our power into forward momentum. The Blur comes in XC and Trail options, with this bike being the longer-travel Trail model that’s set up for a little more comfort on day-to-day trail rides. The Trail version of the Blur comes equipped with a specially machined linkage to allow for 15mm more suspension travel. This gives us a more playful bike and one that’s set up especially well to get us through the most technical parts of our cross-country events and rides. It also sees a longer 120mm FOX 34 Step-Cast fork to help soften the bike’s leading edge. The Blur TR also gets a slacker 67. 1-degree head tube angle and a relatively long 1157mm wheelbase in a size medium. The seat-tube angle is also spec’d at an appropriate 75. 1-degree angle to allow for a very efficient pedaling position. Overall the Blur’s geometry gets us up the mountain as fast as any dedicated cross-country bike and down the mountain like a comfortable short-travel trail bike. *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.
