Blur Carbon XE Complete Mountain Bike by Santa Cruz Bicycles
We're guessing you're probably aware of Newton's First Law from your high school physics class, but we'll reiterate this baseline of classical mechanics, just to make our point. Objects in motion tend to stay in motion, unless acted on by an outside force. In the realm of cross-country racing, these outside forces could be any number of variables, from rugged stretches of rocks and roots threatening to slow you down to a particularly steep climb that's standing between you and the podium. Efficiently taming these speed-sapping forces that would love nothing more than to drop you to the end of the pack, the Santa Cruz Blur Carbon XE Complete Mountain Bike carries its momentum and climbs with uncanny ease, yet it offers enough confidence and composure to clean technical course sections that would otherwise have you dismounting in shame. Santa Cruz may have taken a bit of a divergence from the XC scene in the past few years, with the Tallboy being the closest thing to a cross-country offering in recent time, and geometry stretching to slacker angles year over year, so we're more than excited to not only see the Blur rejoin the lineup, but with geometry that takes a U-turn from the trends, and reverts to true race-ready steep angles. Even steeper than the previous generation, the new Blur features a 69-degree head tube angle, and 74-degree seat tube, perching you on top and in control of your steed for nimble handling and maximum pedaling efficiency while you barrel through miles of singletrack.

The rear end is updated with Boost spacing, stretching things out and stiffening things up, and while we usually see Boost pairing with tucked-in wheels and extra-stubby chainstays, the chainstays on the Blur move out just under a quarter of an inch to 17 inches, so you can st...
