Juliana Strega C LE NX 170mm Enduro

Juliana Bicycles 2018

Now hot on the heels of brother company Santa Cruz reworking their Nomad, Juliana received her own 170mm enduro bike dubbed the Strega that promises to pedal like a trail bike and descend like a true DH monster.

The Strega is similar to the new Nomad v4, that it employs a two-position Virtual Pivot Point suspension design adapted from Santa Cruz’s long 216mm travel V10 to create what is probably the most aggressive mountain bike developed for women.

Juliana feels that women haven’t had their own options for a long travel bike because the industry hasn’t seen a real need from more aggressive women trail riders. But with plenty of women racing enduro, DH & other gravity disciplines, the Strega says it is about time for women to get their own.

The overhaul of the Nomad was the perfect opportunity for Juliana Bicyles to chime in and say they wanted a version for the ladies too. They recognize that this is pretty niche, but why not when they’ve already got the Nomad molds in hand. What’s different you ask?

Well, the Strega gets the exact same frame as the new 27.5″ Nomad, but sticks to the smaller three frame sizes only – XS, S & M. So, that means the same two-position high or low gravity-inspired progressive VPP suspension design, with its grease port equipped alloy linkage. It shares the same 65° headtube for thrashing down the mountain and 74.5° seat tube & dropper post for climbing back up to do it all again.

But Juliana attention to detail for women makes its way out in suspension tuned for a typically lighter range of smaller riders. The shared frame already gets low standover height, but the Juliana probably will benefit even more from the option to set the bike up in either high or low stances with the flip chip at the lower rear shock mount.

The Strega also pairs standover with frame size-specific dropper seatposts, so smaller riders get the extension they need to pedal back up the hills without hauling around more weight (150mm Reverb on M, 125mm on S & 100mm on XS.) The build kits also get adapted out to better fit most female riders with contact points selected by Juliana’s own dedicated female product testers.

 

Drivetrain on the new Strega is 1x only, so gearing is key so for the most part the Strega gets a small 30T chainring when paired with 11 speeds & a 32T with Eagle 12 speed setups. This really is a bike that will benefit from SRAM’s super-wide Eagle cassettes to be able to handle both going up & down again & again.

The 27.5″ Strega is available in two carbon levels – C & CC – in that Wicked green. They include a bolt-on (upper downtube) shuttle guard for tossing off the back of your pick-up, a standard downtube bash protector, and the little rear shock fender. Complete Strega C bikes start at $4500 with a NX setup and climb to at least $8200 for the Strega CC with XX1 Eagle which gets a claimed weight of 29.1lb (13.2kg).

 

There’s also the option to upgrade your builds with Santa Cruz’s new Reserve carbon enduro wheels that actually get the same carbon warranty asa the frames.

The bikes with full carbon main frame & rear triangles (+alloy links) will be available from June 15 and come with a lifetime warranty, ready for anything from big mountain trail days to trips to shred the bike park.

Louis Garneau Carbon LS-100 Women’s Shoe

SPEED.

The original LS-100 Shoes provided more bang for your buck then we’re accustomed to seeing. We’re talking L4 BOA closures and a ridiculously low overall weight. In fact, it’s one drawback was that it didn’t have a full carbon fiber sole, but thankfully, they changed that with the new Carbon LS-100 Women’s Shoes. With them, you get a noticeable weight reduction, a stiffer carbon fiber outsole, and an upgraded heel cup. We challenge you to find a better shoe at this price.

Starting at the outsole, Louis Garneau sought to achieve the perfect balance between strength, rigidity, and weight. Not surprisingly, Louis Garneau hit the mark with its new HM Air-Lite carbon fiber outsole. And when coupled with the low, 4.3mm stack height, the HM Air-Lite’s rigidity equates to a direct transfer of power to the pedals. Just like in frame design, the outsole has a stiffness-to-weight ratio that positively promotes an efficient carry of power with limited energy dispersion. So, in simpler terms, these outsoles make your hard efforts count in relation to speed.

And, not only does this transfer to a more efficient usage of your power expenditures, it also amounts to a feathery overall weight. In fact, the Carbon LS-100 tips the scales at a lower weight than many other manufacturer’s top offerings — around 210g per shoe. This is credited, in one part, to the outsole, but in our opinion, more so to the lightweight upper construction. This has been constructed from a synthetic leather with mesh ventilation windows along the side of the shoe and over the entire tongue. This means that durability is guaranteed without the risk of the adaptive long-term deformity that plagues natural leather uppers. More importantly, though, a bulk of the weight reduction is a result of the Carbon’s closure system. At the toe box, you’ll find a single hook-and-loop strap that controls the lower volume of the shoe. Meanwhile, and a first for us at this price, the venerable BOA L4 single rail controls the retention at the top of the tongue. If you hadn’t noticed, BOA is highly selective as to who it chooses to license to, and that this technology is featured in a $200 shoe is, well, nearly unheard of. Essentially, the L4 buckle provides the most even, forgiving, simple-to-use, and precise retention on the market. With a simple quick turn of the dial, your retention is secured and unwavering.

Included with all of the above, to prevent the power-sapping effects of heel slippage, the shoe features a reinforcement panel that cups the heel from the inner and outer points of the outsole, forming a ‘band’ over the heel. As admittedly basic of a design this is, it works very well at maintaining the secure position of the heel.

This Carbon version is available in even sizes from 36.0 to 43.0 and in the colors Black and White. Please note that these shoes are only compatible with three-hole cleat systems, and that they include a pair of both Louis Garneau COOLMAX Ergo Air Cool Stuff Blue and Hot Stuff Red insoles.

Improving upon the already unbelievable R3 Donna Women’s Cycling Shoe isn’t an easy thing to do. Leave it to the folks at Fizik to make great even greater. At the heart of the new shoe is the unbeatable precision of the Boa dial-in closure system. This closure system makes dialing a perfect fit easy on the Fizik, even if you need to make micro-adjustments on the fly.

The R3’s closure system starts with a conventional hook-and-loop strap close to the Donna toe for near-infinite forefoot width control. Moving up the front of the foot, the Boa Cable dial-in closure system snakes its way through four separate anchor points for complete control all the way up to the tongue. For an extreme control over volume, or simply to efficiently clean the inside of the shoe, Fizik designed the tongue pad to be fully-removable.

To further control slippage, the R3 has shaped the heel cup at the aft position of the shoe. This feature keeps the foot in the perfect position on hard up-strokes and while climbing out of the saddle. As a result, you’re powering the pedals comfortably and efficiently. This has been further heightened by a variable stiffness sole construction. The base layer is an ultra-stiff carbon fiber-reinforced plate.

They went above and beyond to make the R3 extremely breathable. This might not be obvious, given the R3’s lack of traditional mesh ventilation. However, the uppers of the shoe feature their own Microtex microfiber—the same material used on the saddles and bar tape. This material keeps your feet breathing and comfortable on long summer days in the saddle. And for the insole, the R3 includes their own Cycling Insole. And while its not custom moldable, it does incorporate a thoughtful design that assures comfort by absorbing road vibration and supporting your arch system.

SCOTT ROAD COMP LADY SHOE

GET OUT AND RIDE.

The Scott Women’s Road Comp Lady Shoes feature soles made of a nylon/fiberglass matrix for just the right amount of stiffness to transfer power while leaving a hint of forgiving flex for all-day comfort and easier walkability at mid-ride café stops.

Scott fashions the shoes’ uppers from a blend of synthetic polyurethane and 3D nylon air mesh. These materials house Scott’s Wrap Fit construction, which consists of an internal layer of synthetic leather that conforms to your foot shape to reduce pressure points, increase comfort, and provide extra support.

A hook-and-loop anchor holds a cross wrap canopy strap in place across the top of the shoe, while two more hook-and-loop straps span the midfoot and forefoot for a secure fit and easy adjustment on the fly. Inside, Scott’s Adjustable ErgoLogic removable insole and customizable arch provides additional options for tweaking the fit and support.

Expand upon that list of QOMs, throw down in the Saturday county line sprint, and confidently toe the start line in the Women’s Road RC model. While this Road model may make a couple sacrifices in stiffness and closure technology compared to the top-end Men’s RC, but they also come in at a more budget friendly price point and offer a stiff sole and near-custom fit to keep your feet cool and comfortable. As Scott employed a strategic mix of lightweight microfiber and 3D nylon air mesh to build the upper around its Wrap Fit construction. Wrap Fit consists of Scott’s internal layer of synthetic leather that provides extra support while conforming to your foot shape to reduce pressure points and increase comfort.

For the closure system, they outfitted this Road version with a cross strap held in place by a BOA IP1 closure across the top and two hook-and-loop straps to secure the midfoot and forefoot. As you’ll find in all of their top-line shoes, an Adjustable ErgoLogic removable insole provides a customizable arch for additional tweaks to the Road support and fit.

The Scott features an HMX carbon fiber sole similar to the men’s version, but it offers a stiffness level of nine in contrast to the level ten found on the men’s side. While this sole is still lightweight and stiff enough to transfer power in a flash, if you’re looking for top-of-the-line stiffness and the security of a full BOA closure it may be worthwhile to check out the sizing options available in the Men’s Road Shoe.

■■■ Pair the D’Fusion Right Fit frame with mountain worthy components, and go home after riding with a huge grin!


Joe Breeze has been a true diehard for mtn-bikers as a leader for innovation for nearly forty years, while just a few years back the Squall was a perfect example of amazing value, paired with Breezer’s great design. So fast forward a few years with innovation and you get the 2018 Breezer Squall Expert, which still employs their D’Fusion tubing, including a unique D-shape profile on the top and down tubes near the head tube intersection and at the top tube-seat tube intersection. This helped reduced the stress that travels though those key joints, which keeps the Squall lively and reduces the risk of frame fatigue. In the rear triangle, D’Fusion tubing adds rigidity to the chainstays through a wider cross-section, while positioning the broad area outboard, to reduce chain suck. This eliminates the need for heavy gussets and keeps the Squall weight light and responsive.

Breezer Squall Expert LE Bike testing

So the big ?-mark for making it easier to size the wheel diameter, it’s now a simple decision and depends on what frame size you ride. It’s called the Right Fit concept, and what it does is match up the geometry of the frame with the wheel size that really enhances the performance of the bike. They found that for average to smaller size riders, a 27.5″ wheel really is the best way to go, since there are fewer compromises in fit–giving a bike that handles better, rides better, and feels better on the trail. For taller riders, it comes with 29er wheels that better match the way larger bikes handle. It’s an innovative solution that makes buying a mountain bike simple and takes some of your painstaking guesswork out of finding the right bike.
right fit bike sizes

Up front, the Squall utilizes RockShox’s 30 Silver 100mm fork with remote lockout to help smooth out the ride and soak up bumps and big hits. Shifting duties fall to a Shimano Deore/XT 2×10-speed drivetrain that gives you 20 gears to work with out on the trail. Stopping is handled by Shimano’s super reliable M395 hydraulic disc brakes. The Squall finishes with WTB SX/Shimano wheels, paired with Nineline Comp tires tires and Oval’s 300 saddle mated with the Oval 310 handlebar with matching Oval Concept grips, so you have a bike that’s ready to take you to the top. Enjoy the view from your Squall hardtail.

Breezer Squall Sport LE 2018 Right Fit Review

Squall Hardtail Mountain Bike


Joe Breeze, inducted to the hall-of-fame, has been at the forefront of innovation for nearly forty years, back in 2015 the Squall was a perfect example of Breezer design, and great value. So fast forward a few years with innovation and you get the 2018 Breezer Squall Sport, which still employs their D’Fusion tubing, including a unique D-shape profile on the top and down tubes near the head tube intersection and at the top tube-seat tube intersection. This reduces the stress that travels though these joints, which keeps the Squall lively and reduces the risk of frame fatigue. In the rear triangle, D’Fusion tubing adds rigidity to the chain-stays through a wider cross-section, while positioning the broad area outboard, to reduce chain suck. This eliminates the need for heavy gussets and keeps the Squall light and responsive.

So for sizing the wheel diameter, it’s now a simple decision and depends on what size frame you ride. It’s called the Right Fit concept, and what it does is match up the geometry of the frame with the MTB wheel size that really enhances the performance of the bike. They found that for average to smaller size riders, a 27.5″ wheel really is the best way to go, since there are fewer compromises in fit–giving a bike that handles better, rides better, and feels better on the trail. For taller riders, it comes with 29er wheels that better match the way larger bikes handle. It’s an innovative solution that makes buying a mountain bike simple and takes a lot of the guesswork out of finding the right bike.

Up front, the Squall features an SR Suntour XCT 100mm suspension fork with hydraulic speed lockout to help smooth out the ride and soak up bumps and big hits.

The Squall finishes with Vera Terra DPD16 wheels, paired with Vera EOS tires tires and a WTB Volt saddle and the Oval flat-bar so you have a bike that’s ready to take you to the top. Enjoy the view from your Squall hardtail.

Women’s Maloja BucheM. Freeride Shorts

Maloja BucheM. Short - Women's Plum frontside



 

 

Maloja BucheM. Short - Women's Plum frontside
Maloja BucheM. Shorts - Women's Plum backside


 

Sure, baggie mtb shorts are everywhere, but when you start shopping the all-mountain niches, the selection quickly dwindles to either purpose designed down hill racer gear … or articles that lean just a bit too far over the fashion forward fence. But thankfully the Maloja BucheM. MTN Shorts ride that fence by packing in features dedicated to all different types of mountain riders with unique style.

Molaja’s BucheM. Shorts are not restricted to just one inner liner. They felt that having options to choose from either a chamois equipped or armored inner liner definitely outweighs being restricted to only having one or the other that is permanently fixed to the mtb shorts. Not to mention this will also allow you to sport the BucheM. comfortably, without liner, after the mountain bike festivities.

It’s no secret that mountain biking takes its toll on the most loved gear. But Maloja have designed the BucheM. shorts with several different fabrics to provide a perfect balance of material strength, rider comfort, and freedom of movement. For the waist department, the adjustability of the BucheM. from an integrated regulation system so happily the waist size can be adjusted.

Most know all to well how your seat might start off the day having a smooth surface, but that changes as the saddles surface can become more aggressive as it gets a dirty patina through the day of mountain biking. With special material used here, it will give the BucheM. plenty of durability to resist any saddle rub you want to throw at it.

The stylish BucheM. mtb shorts have been crafted from Blend Stretch, which is a very elastic fabric made out of a combination of nylon, polyester and Elasthan fibers. The content of nylon fibers on the outer surface makes the material very robust. Polyester fibers on the reverse side of the fabric provide fast moisture transport outwards. Next to the many features the result of the combination is an unique blend effect. This gives the BucheM. shorts more strength for the inevitable date with the terra firma or any sharp trail side branch they might find. And those trail branches could also be covered with the morning dew, and alpine trails often require some water crossing.

To deal with that, Maloja combined at critical seams, where extreme strain causes high abrasion, they equipped it with triple stitched, thus high durability is guaranteed. This will not only keep the water from penetrating the fabric, but can resist wind as well. These mtb shorts will stay dry on the inside no matter how damp the alpine forest is.

Women's Maloja BucheM. Shorts Clay frontside

They also gave the BucheM. shorts a slightly form fit, but still allowing plenty of room to utilize a liner with hip and thigh pads. For Maloja to achieve this they have tweaked the different panels to hug your profile without being restrictive. Because of the full-gamut of different riding positions though, women’s freeride shorts require added give. Especially along the waistline to maintain sufficient coverage. To address this, Maloja has employed an extra stretch panel to reassure that you will stay comfortable and freely maneuver on your mountain bike.

The Maloja BucheM. – Freeride Shorts come in the five fresh colors of, Plum shown above, Charcoal, Wood, Mountain, and Clay shown above. These shorts are available in sizes X-Small through X-Large.

BETI PRICE $3,929.00 – 38% off

 

2016 Yeti Beti SB5 NX Jenson Custom Bike

 


 

Born from the trails of Colorado, the Beti SB5 is the next iteration of Yeti’s most popular all-mountain bike. With Yeti’s updated, sleek frame design, internal cable routing, BOOST spacing, lower stand-over height and metric suspension all atop Yeti’s Switch Infinity translating pivot, it is the go-to choice for any trail adventure.

Switch Infinity is a simple, lightweight, bombproof system built by Fox Racing Shox from proven suspension components and is engineered and tested to withstand the worst riding conditions. It allows Yeti to tune a bikes suspension to be more responsive give them the mechanical advantage of a linear system which cannot be achieved with traditional link designs.

 

The SB5 frame offers the ideal combination of responsiveness, durability, and supple ride quality. Yeti have taken everything admirable about the original SB5c and made it into a more refined machine. With a few geometry tweaks like a slacker head tube angle, steeper seat tube angle, shorter chainstays, and a slightly longer front-end, Yeti has delivered an even more playful bike that can be pushed even harder. With internal cable routing, lower stand-over height and improved kinematics, the ride continues its legacy as an all-around trail bike ready for light park days and epic backcountry quests.

 

SRAM NX drive train meets DVO suspension, Race Face Aeffect wheelset, and Yeti Switch Infinity suspension technology. The Race Face cockpit includes an Aeffest stem and handlebar, and a SDG Falcon saddle tops the Race Face Turbine dropper post. A set of Shimano SLX brakes and 2.35” Schwalbe Hans Dampf tires keep everything under control. Role all of this into one Beti package and the end product is a bike that rallies ups and downs with punishing determination.

Concept Description

TheRidley Ladies Carbon road bike marks the beginning of a fabulous starting point for Ridley, and for the fast women’s field of racers out there. Yes the Ridley Jane frame is geared for racers due to it’s HMF ‘High Modulous Fiber’ employed throughout, with the well known ratio of 60T-40T-30T carbon similiar to the Ridley Men’s Noah Super-Light SL race models that are currently out there breaking the peleton apart. Although don’t get me wrong, this Jane bike with a slightly shorter reach would be perfect for the experienced weekend warrior wanting a sweet bike as well.

Jane Ultegra

The Jane was developed similar to the Ladies Liz, and will keep you out there grinding miles and miles on end, as it utilizes a key blend of vibration devouring 60-30-20-ton unidirectional carbon fiber layup. So that potholes, cobblestones, and other road hazards are as smooth as crosswalk paint on the women’s setup. The oversized bottom bracket and burly chainstays on the Jane design mean comfort doesn’t have to sacrifice the cost of efficiency, though. And for giggles if you ever get tired of running over the obstacles strewn across the tarmac, the stiff, tapered headtube nets responsive steering to dodge through debris with precision and ease.

 




 

Ridley didn’t skimp on the kit either, so Shimano’s newly redesigned 11-speed Ultegra drivetrain gets the nod with rim brakes to keep it lighter than the past disc versions. Another sign their intension for this bike to be ridden hard is that they didn’t skimp on the cassette, which is easy to do since it’s not heavily branded. When they say complete, they mean it — even when they could get away with cutting corners. The Fulcrum Racing Aero wheelset is another strong spot on the bike, and, combined with the bombproof components, is all but guaranteed to keep you worry free for years.

The fabulous Ridley Liz women’s carbon road bike employs the same kit and materials found specced in their men’s Ridley Fenix models. The only difference is that the Liz is offered with 3cm less reach and a slightly shorter standover height for the lady cyclists in the house.

Ridley Liz fork

They developed the Liz to keep you grinding miles on end, as it employs a key blend of vibration devouring 30- and 24-ton unidirectional carbon fiber structure. So that potholes, cobblestones, and other road hazards are as smooth as crosswalk paint on the women’s setup. The oversized bottom bracket and burly chainstay specs on the Liz getup mean comfort doesn’t have to sacrifice the cost of efficiency, though. And for giggles if you ever get tired of running over the obstacles strewn across the tarmac, the stiff, tapered headtube nets responsive steering to dodge through debris with precision and ease.

Liz Ulteg Women's white green 




 

As mentioned above, Ridley didn’t skimp on the kit. This is a real bike for a real cyclist, so Shimano’s newly redesigned 11-speed Ulteg drivetrain gets the nod. Another sign that Ridley intends this bike to be ridden hard is that they didn’t skimp on the cassette, which is easy to do since it’s not heavily branded. When they say full Ulteg, they mean it — even when they could get away with cutting corners. The 4ZA Cirrus RC23 wheelset is another strong spot on the bike, and, combined with the bombproof Ultegra, is all but guaranteed to keep you worry free for years.

2017 Cannondale Tango 1 27.5 Nearly Black Review




 

Tango 1

 

The 2017 Cannondale Tango 27.5 fits into your budget quite amazing, due partly to it’s list of worthwhile parts that are yes very worthy for getting bounced around down your favorite local trail system. The bike makes a change up though for this year from the 29er it was built around for the past few seasons, and now employs 650b wheels, that are lighter and require less effort to get them rolling than a 29er version. On the Cannondale bike you will still have a larger contact surface with the ground and will experience extremely high grip with very low rolling resistance on whatever surface you roll over. 650b tires still allow for low air pressures at lower margins of danger as the rollover behavior is still improved compared to smaller 26 inch wheels. This is a great hardtail for ladies across the globe.

Tango 2 version




 

Bike Frame made w/ Aluminum

The Tango aluminum frame is not only both rigid and light where it needs to be, but it’s quite a bit less expensive than what a carbon frame would be. Modern aluminum frames are actually close to carbon visually, and they are actually pretty hard to distinguish by the some of new technology and manufacturing process. So now thanks to that hydroforming technology, the production of a complex aluminum frame is made possible, where considerably thinner walls and thus significant weight savings, ultimately a lighter bike than ever before.

Description

The 2017 Ghost Square Cross line offers the most versatile way to enjoy a whole array of experiences on only one bicycle. On the road, the Ghost glides along at almost road-bike-like speed, while off-road it offers the comfort, stability and puncture protection of a mountain bike. The step-thru riding position is well balanced and suitable for a Sunday spin or a quick ride after work, all with that classic urban look to dye for.

With Square details supplied by Shimano, with thier full Alivio drivetrain, the setup is by no means a slouch. While Tektro ACC 003 disc brakes slow it down on the trail without complaint, but unfortunately you can’t integrate your smart phone like the Urban X 10 sibling can.

For the Square to become such an outstanding bike they had to combine two special ingredients, wisely engineered frame and a reputable components package. Now proud to introduce the new model, as a true adventure bike.

Items like these fabulous Manta’s are just as important as any other part on your bike, in fact, think of the Giro Manta setup as an extension of your bike. The Giro is the main contact point between you and your bike, it’s where the power transfer is made from your body to your bike. As the R Shoe designers know all to well, you can’t afford to be wasting any precious effort.

 

Giro Manta R Womens Black

 

The new Manta employs a nylon and rubber outsole for exceptional durability and confidence inspiring grip on rocks or those slippery roots, becuase again the Giro crew know what real mountain biking entails. Ocasionally we all have to hike short sections of nearly impossibly hard climbing on singletrack. Which is why the supportive EVA footbed on the Manta feature supple microfiber upper with two Velcro straps and a micro-ratcheting buckle help keep those little footsies secure and oh so comfy. The setup also receives Aegis anti-microbial treatment that helps fight those grungy fungi and keep the women’s model smelling nice and fresh.

The Giro R nylon outsole is stiff and efficient, rivaling the performance of more expensive composite shoe designs.

With the Exceed only being 180g heavier than the CF SL, the latest addition to the hardtail lineup has World Championship-winning DNA and serves up an unbeatable mix of lightness, comfort, stiffness and outstanding durability. With Exceed geometry at the forefront of the modern approach and SRAM Eagle XX1 Trigger shifting, this is the ideal setup for any XC racing enthusiast.

Pells Razzer First 6 Lady

Pells Razzer First 6 Lady

 

 

 

Razzer First 6 Lady

 

This Razzer model utilizes the VFHS (vertical flexible horizontal stiff) technology, which combines flat rear tubes with 2014 Pells Razzer specific shaping seat stays “S-bend”. This combination allows spring in vertical direction and supports horizontal stiffness. This design of the frame is highlighted by the connection of toptube to it’s seatstays which are built to be flat which then  continue around the seatpost. This provides key Lady characteristics for the Pells frame to make it ride wonderful, while integrating everything together.

 

Puttying and grinding welds on the Razzer headtube area gives it the “carbon look”, to it’s alloy P6 Ultralite frame.  Frames like the Razzer that employ this style of alloy triple butted tubing also have a tapered headtube along with a bottom bearing of 1.5″.  Giving the Razzer maximum rigidity and steering precision wheel.

The 2017 Juliana Joplin 29 Carbon S8 is ridiculously fun. The original Joplin model redefined what people thought a 29er could be. This latest version breaks the mold all over again.

Yes, the Joplin makes for one fine cross-country/endurance machine. With its light-yet-stiff carbon frame, efficient VPP3 rear suspension, and it’s wheel option, this bike can be an absolute race weapon—but the Joplin is more than that.

juliana reverb-post

The Joplin has always been, to reduce this thing to a single word, called fun. As in the uncontrollable-giggling-spontaneous-high-fiving kind of fun. Juliana cranked the knob on that particular trait to 11 this year with a ground-up redesign that increases the bike’s composure on descents, adds a bit more small-bump suppleness to the mix and improves its handling in tight turns.

 

The new Joplin also gives you the option of running different diameter wheels. If you’re looking for quick acceleration and a nimble feel, go 29er. If you’re wanting extra traction and a more forgiving ride over roots and babyhead rocks, go 27.5+. It’s your choice.

Is the Joplin a cross-country racer? Sure. A trail bike? Absolutely. Is it fun? Oh, hell yes.

So for this Carbon-C Juliana model in particular, the frame is every bit as stiff and strong as their top-tier carbon CC-level frames, but weighs about 280 grams more, due to the use of some lighter, stronger, and more expensive carbon fiber. Using this top-level Carbon material in key places allowed them to use less material overall, which is what shaves off more than half a pound from the frame.

2017 Juliana Furtado 2.0 Carbon CC XT Build

Juliana Furtado 2.0 CC XT

 

Part Furtado endurance racer, part fun trail bike…

price: $6199 save 0% weight: 28.19 LBS / 12.79 KG

 

The 2017 Juliana Furtado 2.0 CC  arrives on the scene with longer, lower, and slacker geometry than its lauded predecessor with a nimble back end and aggressive pedaling platform that redefines the limitations of a trail bike. Reigning as the gold standard by which all other trail bikes are measured, the Furtado saw a few updates with it’s mid-season release that further widened the gap to the rest of the herd. While this particular version rocks a kit featuring a Shimano XT two-by 11 drivetrain, Shimano XT hydraulic brakes, a dropper seatpost, and hard-charging RaceFace Arc 24 rims.

2017 juliana furtado spearmint

The shifts in geometry appear most obviously in the slacker head tube and steeper seat tube in comparison to the Furtado 1.0. The head tube loses a whole degree, dropping from 68 to 67, which brings it more in line with the previous Roubion model while expanding the Furtado capability when things possibly get steeper and or truly gnarly. The steeper seat tube angle is equally impactful, with the forward-oriented position of the saddle making for better leverage on the pedals while grinding up climbs or cranking out speed over long stretches of flowy singletrack.

spe_d6

Compared to its predecessor, the Furtado also features a longer reach, lower bottom bracket, 5mm more travel, increased dropper range, stubbier chainstays, and a wider rear axle. This stack of alterations means that it pedals harder, takes bigger bites out of terrain, and provides a wider seat height range for aggressively tackling double-digit grades on either side of zero.

The Virtual Pivot Point 3 (VPP3) suspension also sees some changes in the Furtado. The most immediately obvious is the extra 5mm of travel, but the tuning has also been revised. Where the old Furtado suspension curve described a deep “U,” the new VPP3 curve resembles a flattened check mark, with less dramatic ramping on either end of the travel arc.

The results are that, during the initial stroke, VPP3 provides increased small bump compliance to keep the tires glued to the trail for more traction across lumpy terrain and root-strewn grades. It also maintains that firm feel of the predecessor during accelerations while jockeying for position off the line or clearing a shelf at the crux of a climb. When paired with a Fox Evol air can, the ramp-up arc doesn’t dramatically alter as the shock compresses, so the pedaling platform stays consistent across travel with less wallowing, bob, and bottoming out—even while the axle path turns rearward as travel increases to absorb big hits.

juliana furtado

This CC-level carbon frame is every bit as stiff and strong as Juliana’s C-level frames, but weighs about 280 grams less, due to the use of some lighter, stronger, and more expensive carbon fiber. Using this key material in various places allowed them to use less material overall, which is what shaves off more than half a pound from it’s frame.

Both 2.0 triangles are constructed on the Juliana as whole, monocoque pieces, which also contributes to keeping weight low because the carbon material can be wrapped through junctures and around joints. This eliminates the artificial weak points of bonded frames and actually requires less material in the process. While being cured, the frame is compacted from inside and out, a final step that virtually eliminates any extra material and resin pooling, resulting in more structural integrity and, of course, additional weight savings.

While this particular version rocks a kit featuring a Shimano two-by 11 drivetrain, Shimano hydraulic brakes, a dropper seatpost, and hard-charging Enve rims.

The shifts in geometry appear most obviously in the slacker head tube and steeper seat tube in comparison to the Furtado 1.0. The head tube loses a whole degree, dropping from 68 to 67, which brings it more in line with the previous Roubion model while expanding the Furtado capability when things possibly get steeper and or truly gnarly. The steeper seat tube angle is equally impactful, with the forward-oriented position of the saddle making for better leverage on the pedals while grinding up climbs or cranking out speed over long stretches of flowy singletrack.

Compared to its predecessor, the Furtado also features a longer reach, lower bottom bracket, 5mm more travel, increased dropper range, stubbier chainstays, and a wider rear axle. This Juliana stack of alterations means that it pedals harder, takes bigger bites out of terrain, and provides a wider seat height range for aggressively tackling double-digit grades on either side of zero.

The Virtual Pivot Point 3 (VPP3) suspension also sees some changes in the Furtado. The most immediately obvious is the extra 5mm of travel, but the tuning has also been revised. Where the old suspension curve described a deep “U,” VPP3 curve resembles a flattened check mark, with less dramatic ramping on either end of the travel arc.

The results are that, during the initial stroke, VPP3 provides increased small bump compliance to keep the tires glued to the trail for more traction across lumpy terrain and root-strewn grades. It also maintains that firm feel of the predecessor during accelerations while jockeying for position off the line or clearing a shelf at the crux of a climb. When paired with a Fox Evol air can, the ramp-up arc doesn’t dramatically alter as the shock compresses, so the pedaling platform stays consistent across travel with less wallowing, bob, and bottoming out—even while the axle path turns rearward as travel increases to absorb big hits.

Juliana employs industry-leading frame construction, although this version uses a slightly higher grade for it’s higher end Carbon CC frame. This requires less material to achieve the same strength, while it carries a bit less weight, but in every other aspect the CC carbon holds the same high standards as their Carbon level frames. The key is you get a frame that’s stiff and strong.

Both 2.0 triangles are constructed on the Juliana as whole, monocoque pieces, which also contributes to keeping weight low because the Carbon CC material can be wrapped through junctures and around joints. This eliminates the artificial weak points of bonded frames and actually requires less material in the process. While being cured, the Furtado frame is compacted from inside and out, a final step that virtually eliminates any extra material and resin pooling, resulting in more structural integrity and, of course, additional weight savings.
