Here’s what Santa Cruz have to say of their new well-kept secret new machine…
105mm travel, next generation VPP suspension
-Super efficient bump absorption, incredible pedaling response, no lockouts
or platforms required
-Reliable, serviceable, stiff – next generation VPP links are core of the
most evolved suspension on the market
-Ultra-lightweight, incredibly strong carbon fiber frame (4.2 pounds, frame
and shock, size medium)
-That wasn’t a typo. It’s really light.
-How light? 22 pounds, 6 ounces for the XTRxc complete
