Cruz Bicycles has improved the original VPP Blur into
what is now the Blur XC. The Virtual Pivot Point suspension
still comes with 115mm of travel behind, but the chainstays
are shorter, the top tube longer, and the tubing is
now lighter. If you are interested in Cross Country
(XC) Mountain Biking, you can't go wrong with this bike.
are 3 models currently, the Blur XC (the lightest, and
race worthy), the Blur LT, which is beefed up a bit,
more suspension, and a more slacked head angle, and
the Blur 4X,
which as the name would suggest, is made exclusively
for 4X and slalom mountain bike racing. It's head tube
is much stronger and the frame geometry is altered to
handle it's core purpose. All of the bikes come with
the VPP technology, controling pedal-induced bobbing
and reducing wasted force.
Cruz Bicycles is on top of their game right now, with
incredible bikes for all types of riders. You simply
can't find a bad bike in the lineup and the Santa Cruz
Blur is no exception.
