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).

    He's got some crazy boost on sections I never thought of as jumps... Seeing a world class rider on familiar trails makes me feel so slow.

    I think this trail is in Canada somewhere. Americans could never build something that fun. There would be lawsuits or.. land use issues.. or rabid hikers that would surely put a cap on it.
