Introducing the all-new carbon fiber Blur LT14th APR 2009

Santa Cruz, California

Blur LT Carbon

Grease ports!

Blur LT Carbon
Full carbon goodness, and a direct mount front derailleur

Blur LT Carbon
Replaceable derailleur hanger, integrated chainstay protector

140mm travel (proven geometry, and the high performance, low maintenance assurance of VPP2 suspension)
5.6 pound frame and shock weight (1 pound lighter than existing LT, almost as light as the old XC)
The stiffest chassis we have ever built, bar none.
The strongest frame we have ever built, in every test we threw at it.

It's just like the Blur LT that everyone loves. Except it's lighter, stiffer, way stronger, faster, and more responsive, and stronger. Did we already say strong? Yes, but it is worth mentioning again. You could build a lightweight trail flyer out of it, or you could build it to the hilt and never ever have to ask if the frame can handle whatever travel fork you want to put on it, or if there are rider weight limits, or if it is burly enough to handle a 6' drop to flat, or any of those niggling little concerns that people are always asking about with carbon fiber bikes. We've got one catch all answer to any "is it tough enough?" question.

Hell yes!

Blur LT Carbon
Tapered (1 1/8" semi integrated upper race, 1.5" lower race) head tube

Blur LT Carbon
Low profile cable stops, included routing for adjustable seatposts

This isn't some long travel lightweight XC experiment. Think of the Blur LTc as a hairy chested all-mountain ass kicker. In a hockey mask. Holding a chainsaw.
