The Blur CC X01 Reserve 2018 is the ride fast, ride far, ride harder than your heart can take kind of XC race bike that Santa Cruz would make. Light enough to scorch hot laps and tough enough to endure a long-distance beating. The one-piece carbon VPP rear triangle 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 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. The Blur carries the same lifetime frame and pivot bearing warranty as all other Santa Cruz bikes. No matter how arduous your next XC endeavour, the Blur is ready to go full gas, 24/7. This version of the Santa Cruz Blur features a premium CC level carbon frame, Fox Shox elite suspension with remotes, Sram X01 Eagle 1×12 drivetrain, and Santa Cruz’s brand new Reserve carbon rims.
