In the fall of 2020, Santa Cruz ran out of their 2020 Blur bikes. However, some unpainted Blur frames still remained in inventory. So Santa Cruz painted the remaining frames with interim colors: Lavender and Carbon. Both turned out quite well and we have a few to offer until the 2020 model year is completely sold out.
SANTA CRUZ BLUR X01 TRAIL XL RESERVE WHEELS. 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 dual fork/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 and fork simultaneously. 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. Even the optional lightweight 29-inch Reserve carbon wheels are covered for life too. No matter how arduous your next XC endeavor, the Blur is ready to go full gas, 24/7. Lifetime warranty.
