Blur XC, Endurance, Racing

Full gas, 24/7.

The Blur is the ride fast, ride far, ride harder than your heart can take kind of XC race bike that only we would make. Light enough to scorch hot laps and tough enough to endure a long-distance beating, the Blur bowls into the Cross Country Club like Rodney Dangerfield at Bushwood*.

The one-piece carbon VPP® rear triangle shares a similar twin upright architecture to 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.

The Blur doesn’t just race, it rips race courses a new A-line. Inspiring geometry built around a 69-degree head tube angle drives you to take those sketchy rough lines past the wobblers who stand between you and the podium.

Make no mistake, at just 2060g* this is our lightest ever 100mm VPP® suspension bike. VPP® is already one of the most pedal efficient engineering principles in the history of mountain bike design. Throw our dual lockout build kits into the mix and you’ve got more thrust on demand than SpaceX.

All without trade off. 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.
