A fair advantage
Each weekend, at race venues the world over, there is one rider who gets hoisted upon the shoulders of the crowd and carried to the podium (or at least leaves with a water bottle as their prize). And, between each of those races, innumerable wannabes are putting in the hours on the rollers and in the gym, all because they want to feel what it's like to take the win. They know that, to beat the pack, every advantage needs to be acquired. That's where the Blur fits in.
We tapped into everything we've learned from years of making the highest quality carbon full-suspension bikes so that we could put as little (weight) as possible into the Blur frame. The trim frame and super-efficient Superlight suspension will be the key to translating your input into competition-beating performances.
But, the Blur isn't just for the short track. Two water bottle mounts within the front triangle should keep chuggers happy. And, the high quality fit, finish, and carbon construction promises multi-day racers a worry-free existence, meaning there's no fiddly proprietary parts that could leave you stranded in a Cape Epic or Breck Epic campsite. The carbon frame, while being light, is made to go the distance, and, as always, the legendary Santa Cruz lifetime warranty and Rider Support team have your back.
The Blur isn't guaranteed to make you a race winner, but being the lightest full-suspension carbon XC bike we've ever made at approx 23lb complete with a frame that is 289g lighter than the previous model, it might be the difference between claiming first place...or just crossing the line.
