The inauguration of a fresh president here in the USA seems like an auspicious time to take the wraps off Santa Cruz Bicycles' most closely guarded secret since, well, ever. Ladies and gentlemen, departing Trek riding Texan Republicans and incoming Illinois hoop shooting Democrats, please lend a hand for the arrival of the totally new and completely awesome, carbon fiber Blur XC!Since it would be tacky to try and stretch a metaphor about domestic and/or global policy any further to somehow validate our new bike, we'll cut straight to the chase:
-105mm travel, next generation VPP suspension
-Super efficient bump absorption, incredible pedaling response, no lockouts or platforms required
-Reliable, serviceable, stiff - next generation VPP links are core of the most evolved suspension on the market
-Ultra-lightweight, incredibly strong carbon fiber frame (4.2 pounds, frame and shock, size medium)
-That wasn't a typo. It's really light.
-How light? 22 pounds, 6 ounces for the XTRxc complete
-Damn, that's light
We spent a huge amount of time and effort developing this bike, and are confident that it sits right on the sharpest part of the cutting edge of both performance and technology. You can read the whole developmental spiel. Or you can just nod your head in agreement when we say that this bike will change how you think about cross country performance.
So put your hands together folks. Out with the old, in with the new.
