The lightweight Santa Cruz Blur is designed for cross-country, marathon riding, and endurance riding, and it's equally at home at the races or all day explorations of the great wide yonder. The one-piece carbon rear triangle with 100mm of VPP suspension 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. Inspiring geometry built around a 69-degree head tube angle enables you to take those sketchy rough lines and blow past your competitors and unto the winner's podium. The Blur is equipped with a shock lockout that's enabled by a lever on the handlebar. You can flip the switch to lock the suspension and when it's time to descend, you can flip the switch to open the shock. Given the Blur's XC and Endurance pedigree, there aren't many downsides to having a remote lockout on a bike like this. The Blur carries the same lifetime frame and pivot bearing warranty as all other Santa Cruz Bicycles. No matter how arduous your next XC endeavor, the Blur is ready to go full gas, 24/7. Lifetime warranty. Shock pump is sold separately.
