This week's featured product: Santa Cruz Palmdale Grips (black)

When it comes to premium real estate for your hands, all roads lead to Palmdale. Designed and tested exclusively by Santa Cruz.

FEATURES

Single lock-ring design with the staying power of dual lock-ring

A taper-lock core uses an internal sleeve that narrows towards the last 38mm (1.5”) of the grip, effectively clamping onto the end of the bar to eliminate twisting.

Flared closed end for comfort, feel and security

8mm (0.3”) of rubber with a subtle mushroom profile on the tip resists scuffing, provides comfort and adds an intuitive feel for the bar end.  (We also found it adds a healthy dose of forgiveness when clipping trees on tight trails!)

Long grip length and waffle knurl for maximum control

A generous 125mm (4.9”) grip length (excluding lock-ring) allows plenty of room to reposition hands on differing terrain and long rides.  The moto-knurl pattern gives just the right balance of feel and grip in all conditions.

This week's featured product: Santa Cruz Blur

Full gas, 24/7.

The Blur is the ride fast, ride far, ride harder than your heart can take kind of XC race bike that only we would make. Light enough to scorch hot laps and tough enough to endure a long-distance beating, the Blur bowls into the Cross Country Club like Rodney Dangerfield at Bushwood*.

The one-piece carbon VPP® rear triangle shares a similar twin upright architecture to our World Cup-winning downhill bikes.  Paired with a one-piece carbon front end it delivers a lateral stiffness and tracking ability you just don’t see on featherweight bikes of this genre.

The Blur doesn’t just race, it rips race courses a new A-line. Inspiring geometry built around a 69-degree head tube angle drives you to take those sketchy rough lines past the wobblers who stand between you and the podium.

Make no mistake, at just 2060g* this is our lightest ever 100mm VPP® suspension bike. VPP® is already one of the most pedal efficient engineering principles in the history of mountain bike design.  Throw our dual lockout build kits into the mix and you’ve got more thrust on demand than SpaceX.

All without trade off.  The Blur carries the same lifetime frame and pivot bearing warranty as all other Santa Cruz Bicycles.  Even the optional lightweight 29-inch Reserve carbon wheels are covered for life too.  No matter how arduous your next XC endeavour, the Blur is ready to go full gas, 24/7.

  • Available in: Carbon C & Carbon CC
  • Wheel size: 29"

This week's featured product: Santa Cruz Reserve Carbon Wheelset

Strongest Wheels on the Market

Whether it's a sunset lap with friends or a race run against the clock, a broken wheel ruins any ride. We set strength and impact resistance as our highest priority, but strength doesn't have to mean uncomfortably stiff. Our wheels are compliant enough to avoid that harsh "wooden" ride that gives some carbon rims a bad name off road. We only make off road bikes at Santa Cruz, so we have the privilege of being able to focus purely on the mountain bike experience. Everything from the thickness of rim beads to external spoke hole reinforcements comes purely from our experience of knowing what riders need at every level - from international racing to your local trails.

Lifetime Warranty

Lifetime. No gimmicks. Not limited. If you do actually manage to break our rim while out riding, we'll replace it for free. And probably high five you in the process! If it gets run over by a truck we'll help you out with a low cost accidental 'crash replacement', because life's too short to argue. We know riding time's too precious to keep you waiting, so we'll do our best to sort you out fast.
