Featuring a 2.5 kg frame with shocks included is the new trail bike from Santa Cruz named Blur TRc thanks to its carbon fiber, as c in its name stands for carbon, along with its lay-up process. With 68-degree head tube and 72.5-degree seat tube, the angles of this all carbon trail bike are very relaxed.
The carbon fiber frame is combined with essentially flex-free VPP design, which offers 5 inches of rear wheel travel. This results to the most rigid chassis among all competitions. 0.3-inch shorter chain stays and the slackened headtube offers a longer wheelbase.
Along with its more progressive and crisp suspension, the 2011 Blur TRc Carbon Trail Bike provides excellent pedal efficiency. For more firmness, the trail bike has a 13.1-inch bottom bracket. However, the bottom bracket does not show flexibility.
