Santa Cruz Blur TR Carbon

26er News

The Blur TRc fits between the Blur XC and the Blur LT models. With 5″ of rear travel, the TRc strikes a solid balance between both.


An entirely new addition to the Santa Cruz family, the Blur TRc defines what Santa Cruz Bicycles think a trail bike should be. Crafted from carbon fiber, featuring our proprietary lay-up process, the frame weighs a scant 5 pounds with shock included. Patented VPP suspension offers 5 inches of travel and combined with the carbon fiber frame, chassis rigidity is second to none. The top tube length and riding position are evolved from our climb-happy xc bikes – a bit more stretched out than on our longer travel rigs – but mated to a relaxed head angle that is sure to make any dedicated gravity fiend weep with joy.

Available in Matte Carbon/Green or Gloss Carbon/Orange

$2699 US MSRP frame with Fox RP23 – Complete bikes from $3799

    with carbon and aluminum versions of both the Blur XC and Blur LT, I wonder how long till we see a carbon version of the TR? Kind of like how they rolled out the Tallboy Carbon first, then released the Al version now.

    I’d still up for the carbon version, though.

    What travel fork is it designed around? Will 140mm work?

  • Scott says:

    I am not sure I get the differentiation between the LT and the TR. Which would I buy? I guess I need to wait to see the geometry specs, but the bikes seem to fill the same role. They definitely have the 4” to 6” range covered: 4”, 5”, 5.5” & 6.5”. What is strange is the big hole between the nomad and the driver 8. Where is their “freeride” bike? The driver 8 is too park-oriented to be pedaled uphill and the Nomad is too light for serious North Shore riding. Carbon VPFree, anyone? Yes I remember the Bullet, but it is not the same quality.

    I would be sweet if they bumped up the LT to 6” and the Nomad to 7”.
