Santa Cruz Bicycles Launch New Aluminum Blur TR For 2013

The all new aluminum Blur TR delivers all the same aggressive ride features of the beloved carbon TRc, just in a more economical package. The TRc has been a favorite with many rider and this new aluminum offering should get more people on the Blur TR program.

With 125mm of VPP suspension, relaxed angles and massive frame stiffness throughout, the TR begs to be thrashed harder than an FIA president. Attention to the uphill part of the equation includes internal routing for Reverb Stealth dropper seat posts and even 2 bottle cage mounts.


Geometry is what made the Blur TRc a hoot to ride and it’s nice to see a cheaper option offered for riders in this alloy version. Add to that their new 5 year warranty. It will be available in Satin Black/Gold and Gloss Red/Blue.

Tapered headtube, 142x12mm rear axle, short chainstays, and some aggressive trail shredding geometry.


  • Frame price $1925 with Float CTD (upgrade to Float CTD k for + $100)
