Santa Cruz Bicycles Introduces New Aluminum Blur TR 15

Santa Cruz Bicycles Introduces New Aluminum Blur TR

We're barely into 2013 already, but that won't hold the boys at Santa Cruz back - they've just launched the all-new Blur TR, which is the aluminum version of their very successful Blur TRc. In the Blur TR, you get the same relaxed angles and stiff frame in a short-travel package that quite obviously is up for just about anything - just check out Josh Bryceland absolutely slaying it in this launch video:

In terms of tech, in addition to standard issue 125mm VPP suspension (including grease ports), a tapered headtube, and 4 frame sizes, the Blur TR also features and 2 bottle cage mounts, should your inner XC demon get the better of you. At 6.58 lbs with shock (for a medium), it will certainly rack up the miles if need be.The Blur TR is expected to start shipping in mid-February.

The geometry remains the same as on the Blur TRc (68 degree HA and a 13.1" BB height), and of course there's Santa Cruz's new 5 year warranty too. Frames are available at $1925 with Float CTD, or with an optional upgrade to Float CTD k  for an extra $100. Build kits start at $3099 (with the top end kit at around $7200).
