Positioned as the solution for modern XC courses with burly features, the Blur TR Mountain Bike offers a well-thought-out feature set and aggressive descending feel. The Blur comes in two different suspension and geometry configurations, with this TR version boasting slacker angles, and added suspension travel with 115mm in the rear and 120mm up front. Santa Cruz still utilizes the same ultra-lightweight construction in the TR to ensure its firmly positioned in the XC race bike category, only with a slightly more capable ride feel for gnarly courses. This Carbon XT build features the less expensive Carbon C frame construction that’s slightly heavier than its CC counterpart, with a full XT Groupset for consistent shifting. We position this build as a mid-tier option from Santa Cruz with respectable suspension components and reliable XT brakes. We especially appreciate that this build still gets race-ready features like dual water bottle mounts and an integrated chain guide to ensure we never drop our chain between the tape. *Due to unprecedented demand in the global supply chain and the bike industry over the last 18 months, material weight and exact components are subject to change. We are working diligently to keep tech specs updated, and any adjustments will be minor. If you have any questions, reach out to a Gearhead by chatting online or calling 1-888-276-7130.
