Why We Like The Santa Cruz Blur Carbon C GX Eagle AXS Trail Mountain Bike
From zipping up fire roads for our afternoon hot laps to taking on our first multi-day singletrack epic, the Santa Cruz Blur TR has us riding further and faster than ever before. The TR version boasts longer and slacker geometry to handle the increasingly gnarly cross-country race courses we're seeing today. The lightweight and strong Carbon C frame construction is just slightly heavier than the top-of-the-line CC layup and saves precious bucks that we can put towards race fees and new kits. The progressive Superlight rear linkage offers 115mm of travel allowing us to pedal up climbs efficiently while still keeping our rear wheel planted when things get technical.
Spec on the Blur Carbon C GX Eagle AXS Trail allows us to enjoy ultra-reliable components and electronic shifting without emptying our wallet. The SRAM GX Eagle AXS 12-speed drivetrain shifts reliably in almost any conditions and also lets us change gears for last-minute, split-second decisions when features sneak up on us. Ultra-reliable Race Face 29er hoops are laced up to smooth-spinning Industry Nine 1/1 hubs to keep us rolling down the next rock roll and through the rock garden ahead, while the Maxxis Rekon Race tires are specced in the "Wide Trail" 2.4-inch option going us a larger contact for unrelenting grip and low rolling resistance. The Santa Cruz Blur Carbon C GX Eagle AXS Trail Mountain Bike is the perfect short-travel XC slayer for those of us looking to add a new bike to our quiver for slaying singletrack or maybe even dabbling in the local XC race scene.
*Due to a high demand in the global supply chain and bike industry since the start of the pandemic, material, weight and exact components are subject to change. We are working diligently to keep tech specs updated, and any adjustments will be of equal or better spec level.
