The Blur is our ride fast, ride far, ride-harder-than-your-heart-can-take XC race bike. 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. Make no mistake, at just 2060g this is our lightest ever full suspension frame. Centered around 100mm of ultra-efficient VPP® rear suspension travel, and complemented by dual remote lockouts and super stiff carbon frame, you’ll have more thrust on demand than SpaceX.
The one-piece carbon VPP® rear triangle shares its twin upright architecture with our World Cup-winning downhill bikes. Paired with a one-piece carbon front end it delivers a lateral stiffness and tracking ability you just don’t see on featherweight bikes of this genre. 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.
With room for two bottles, 29-inch wheels, and a 1X-specific drivetrain the Blur is dedicated to going harder, for longer. Dual remote lockouts on select models give you the option to flick between Fast and Faster. The TR kit engages party mode. Built with a slightly beefier fork (110mm Fox Stepcast34), dropper post, and knobbier tires, the TR blurs the lines of typical XC bike performance.
We built this bike to endure. Whether you’re contending for podiums week in, week out or ticking off a bucket list goal, the Blur is the bike to get you there fast. Like all Santa Cruz bikes, the Blur comes with a lifetime frame and pivot bearing warranty, and benefits from years developing our carbon technology and production capabilities.
