Description

Finally, a bike for your fantasy island.

You have a bike for going up, a bike for going down, and a bike for everywhere in between. Why not have a bike that does all three? The Santa Cruz Blur LT is the ultimate hypothetical 'desert island' bike— assuming said island were a playground of rolling fire roads, mountainous traverses, and gnarly, fast-twitch descents. And being an island, of course it would also have a totally sweet beach. Away from the umbrella drinks and back to the bike, though, with its beefy 15 millimeter pivot axles on angular contact bearings and 135 millimeters of Santa Cruz's award-winning VPP travel slung confidently between your legs, there isn't a single imaginary trail you wouldn't want to take the gutsy Blur LT on.

  • Upright geometry keeps your weight properly distributed for punchy climbs without compromising handling precision when it's time to throw the bike into a corner
  • Zero-BS Shimano XT shifters and drivetrain offer up more than a lifetime of reliable use and abuse
  • Mavic XM 321 hoops are light enough to get you up, but durable enough to see you all the way to the bottom
  • Rock Shox Revelation RL front suspension gives you 140 millimeters of terrain crushing travel

Santa Bluuuuuur

Overall an excellent AM bike. It performs on the uphills and downhills. I rode this bike at Slickrock and I had the best experience. I was surprised on the way it climbs, just like a goat. Buy it.
