From the PR honchos at Santa Cruz:
Our new Blur TRc is almost a spitting image of the old 4x in terms of geometry, but it has 10mm more travel and the frame is about two and a half pounds lighter. Probably stronger too, although we did use VPfree downtubes on the 4x, so i wouldn't want to go head-to-head on that allegation. Anyway, it's the kind of trail bike a hucker could love, and it's the sort of bike that big burly freaks who corner hard with their entire torsos out in front of the bars will absolutely love.
Available in Matte Carbon/Green or Gloss Carbon/Orange
$2699 US MSRP frame with Fox RP23 - Complete bikes from $3799
An entirely new addition to our family, the Blur TRc defines what we 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.
24lbs as pictured here!
Geometry based on 501mm fork axle to crown with 15mm stack height
