Santa Cruz Blur and Highball

New Santa Cruz models announced!

With the usual media fanfare, Santa Cruz have just announced 2 new models - or the return of previous models to be more accurate!

Blur

Originally, the Tallboy was Santa Cruz's lightweight, shorter travel 29er - but over a few itereations that's gradually erred longer travel and more trail orientated.  For the XC race rider, that left a bit of a gap - hence the return of the Blur!

 

- 100mm travel front and rear

- 29" wheels

- VPP rear suspension

- 1x drivetrain specific

- routing for remote dropper seatpost and remote shock lockout

- two bottle cages

- Boost spacing

- Small, Medium, Large, XL sizes

- Matt Carbon or Sunset Orange

 

There's no plan to offer an aluminium Blur, but it'll be available with both Carbon C and Carbon CC frame options.

 

- Blur Carbon C, R build kit - £3700

- Blur Carbon C, S build kit - £4400

- Blur Carbon C, XE build kit - £4800

- Blur Carbon CC, XO1 build kit - £5700

- Blur Carbon CC, XO1 Reserve build kit - £6900

Highball

Most of the hardtails that we sell tend to be steel all-rounders, but there's definitely space for a light and fast race bike - the Highball is back!  Think rigid Blur - something for XC races, trailquests or long distance efforts.

 

- 29"wheels 

- suits 100mm travel fork

- New Carbon layup, with dropped seatstays

- 27.2mm seatpost for compliance

- 3 sets of bottle bosses

- Internal cable routing

 

Again, we see Carbon C and Carbon CC options;
