We are in the middle of the week of the MTB World Championships and that means an avalanche of news and novelties. From Italy, Luca Braidot has just presented the custom Santa Cruz Blur CC with which he will compete in the World Championship and in addition to its aesthetics, it stands out for mounting the RockShox SID Flight Attendant suspensions that have not yet been presented.

Luca Braidot's Santa Cruz Blur CC arrives full of novelties at the World Championship

Luca Braidot's Santa Cruz Blur CC with electronic RockShox SID Flight Attendant suspensions

Just a few weeks ago RockShox presented its new SID and SID SL 2024 range with 3 positions, but about its electronic models for XC we only know what we have been able to see in Nino Schurter's SCOTT Spark for some months. Something that from what we find again in this custom Santa Cruz Blur CC by Luca Braidot seems to be ready for market release.

The Rockshox Lux Flight Attendant 120mm prototype shock is the first time we see it, as it was hidden on Schurter's Spark.
Far from going unnoticed, the RockShox SID Ultimate Flight Attendant 120mm fork looks like an ultimate version


It is a RockShox SID Ultimate fork and Lux shock with the brand's Flight Attendant technology and 120mm of travel. Two specific models for XC in which the electronics take over and adjust the operating mode of the suspensions in a matter of seconds.
