Sea Otter Report 10: Santa Cruz, Commencal

Santa Cruz

We’ve seen this before, but it’s worth another look – Santa Cruz is popping its super-popular Blur LT out in a Carbon version too, now.

5.6lb of swoopy curvy loveliness.

SC’s recently released Driver 8 looking very nice in purpley-blue.

Fantastically ridiculous push-me-pull-you style bike, that’s apparently rideable, should you be brave enough.


Commencal takes the next logical step with its popular Meta 5.5 frame and make it out of carbon. It’s not available quite yet, but will be soon – look for a weight of around 5.9lb with an RP23 shock.

One for the Cedric Gracia wannabes – the coming-soon Absolute SX: 5.5in travel, interchangeable dropouts and a BB-centered pivot make it singlespeedable.
