Product Info

If there was ever a bike that makes cruising a 35+ mile loop feel like a quick stint to the 7eleven down the street, it certainly has to be the Santa Cruz Bicycles Blur 3 C S Complete Mountain Bike. Its precisely made carbon C frame is feather light and impressively rigid for smooth bump performance and maneuverability. Boasting a versatile SRAM GX Eagle™ drivetrain and Fox's ultralight Step-Cast 32 fork and remote shock, the Santa Cruz Bicycles Blur 3 C S Complete Mountain Bike racks up the smiles and miles with ease.

Product Details

Frame/Shock

Carbon C FrameA minimal weight gain of approximately 250 - 280 grams (0.6 lbs) for the C frame over the CC due to the different grade of carbon used. Whether you're riding a carbon CC or C frame, you get exactly the same legendary strength and stiffness because Santa Cruz uses exactly the same manufacturing facility and techniques.

100mm VPP® SuspensionVPP is based on the patented principle of having two short links rotating in opposite directions. This system provides huge design flexibility, allowing Santa Cruz to manipulate shock rates to the intended purpose and character of each model; from short travel endurance bikes to World Championship winning DH machines.

Fox Float Performance DPS Shock with RemoteFLOAT DPS shocks have fewer adjustments than Factory Series (no Open mode adjust tuning range), and have black anodized air sleeve and body instead of Genuine Kashima Coat. A Performance graphics package ties in the black-on-black look.

Fork

FOX 32 Performance Step-Cast RemoteThe distinct shape of the lower leg design isn't just for looks. The 32 Step-Cast (SC) chassis uses a narrow stance to save weight and the step design makes room for the spokes and brake rotor. The 32 SC features 32 mm upper tubes and ample bushing overlap for a quality ride and the hollowed out lower legs provide even more weight savings. Performance forks retain the same 7000 series aluminum upper tubes as Factory Series, but black anodized upper tubes are used in place of Genuine Kashima Coat. FIT GRIP damper (with fewer adjustments and different architecture) replaces the FIT4 dampers found in 32 Factory forks. A Performance Series graphics package is found on these forks to tie in the black-on-black look.

Drive Train

SRAM GX Eagle™ CranksetThe SRAM GX Eagle™ crankset delivers consistent performance every time out. Featuring SRAM's X-SYNC™2 tooth profile chainring, the GX crankset is engineered for complete chain control. Each tooth's thickness is precisely toleranced and controlled to work seamlessly with the chain's inner and outer links.

SRAM GX Eagle™ 12-Speed Rear DerailleurThis new GX derailleur not only answers the Eagle™ drivetrain's need for greater capacity, but it's also the next evolution of SRAM's proven, 1x-specific X-HORIZON™ design. The larger, 14-tooth X-SYNC™ lower pulley allows for a 10- to 50-tooth cassette and also adds to Eagle's overall smooth-pedaling feel. The new Type-3 ROLLER BEARING CLUTCH™ features a smoother torque curve for a quieter, more consistent operation and feel. CAGE LOCK™ has been moved back and out of the way, protecting it from trail debris. And a redesigned, robust mounting system further improves the Eagle™ derailleur's performance and overall durability.

SRAM XG1150 CS 10-42T CassetteFULL PIN™ technology uses eleven lightweight, stamped steel cogs held together with 123 high-strength stainless steel pins. The result: a cassette that’s light, durable and equipped with SRAM’s super wide 10-42t gear range that’s a perfect fit for any ride. The open design similar to our X-DOME™ cassette aids in mud clearance, giving you cleaner shifting performance and longer component life.

SRAM GX Eagle™ 12-Speed ShifterThe challenges of riding a mountain bike should be kept to roots, rocks, mud, trees, jumps, drops and breathing. Putting total control of your gear selection into the thumb of one hand, it's simple to find the right gear, right now. The GX Eagle™ trigger shifter is the control center of the Eagle™ drivetrain. Its internal works have been updated to include a 12th gear, and improved to enhance trigger feel, precision and durability.

SRAM GX Eagle™ 12-Speed ChainThe GX Eagle™ chain is designed with SRAM's Eagle™ geometry, the GX Eagle™ chain features solid pin construction, Eagle™ PowerLock® and smooth, efficient shifting that you can count on every time out.

Brakes

SRAM Level T BrakesetLevel T capitalizes on the same trail-taming brake technology that conquered the 2015 World Mountain Bike Championships, to deliver a powerful and consistent XC and trail-optimized brake set that keeps your capital in the bank. This budget-minded, MatchMaker™ compatible brake set provides all the power of its siblings, keeping you in complete control.

Avid Centerline RotorsThe new Centerline Rotor was designed to keep the center of friction consistent throughout rotation thereby minimizing vibration offering consistent performance and a quiet ride.

Wheel Set

Maxxis Aspen TiresMaxxis has done it again with its latest XC race tire. The new Maxxis Aspen pushes the limits of a lightweight XC tire designed to have minimal rolling resistance. The Aspen is designed with a high-volume casing to smooth out the roughest roots and rocks, while the dual compounds give optimal traction in the corners. If crossing the finish line first is your top priority, then the Aspen was designed for you.
