Why We Like The Santa Cruz Bicycles Blur Carbon XT Mountain Bike

Whether we’re having a go at the local XC race or simply want to hit the training miles hard, the Blur Carbon XT Mountain Bike is among our top picks for cross-country riding. This XC version of the Blur boasts 100mm of front and rear travel for maximum efficiency while tackling modern XC courses and lengthy training rides. The steep 68.3-degree head tube angle provides us with an aggressive stance for putting the power down, while three total water bottle mounts ensure that we’re prepared for race day. The Superlight linkage from Santa Cruz provides a supportive platform for efficiency, yet 100mm of rear travel provides a touch of extra traction for tricky corners and rock rolls. 29in wheels maintain momentum over flat-out sprints, plus they help us roll over tricky rocks, roots, and ledges.


This Carbon XT build utilizes the Carbon C frame construction from Santa Cruz which is slightly heavier than its CC counterpart, although still offers the reactive stiffness of carbon. Shimano’s XT drivetrain provides a 10-51t cassette range that lets us crank up the unforgiving steeps, along with dependable shifting. Race Face ARC Offset 27 wheels provide an excellent value with truly impressive durability and confidence-inspiring vibration damping. The RockShox Sid SL Select+ fork features a remote lockout to give you complete control over your efficiency as you navigate the trail. We’d characterize this build as an excellent option for an efficiency-focused trail bike, or an entry-level bike for the local XC race series.


*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.
