Here is a little taster of some products that we stock…
Juliana’s Trail and All-Mountain/Enduro bikes come in the form of the Furtado and Roubion. With both bikes taking the geometry and sizing from the immensely popular Santa Cruz 5010 v2 and the Bronson v2 and tuned to be more suitable for female riders with women’s specific contact points such as the saddle, narrower handlebars and grips.
Let’s start with the Furtado, the women’s specific trail bike featuring the same 130mm VPP equipped frame as the Santa Cruz 5010. With just the right balance between downhill capability and pedalling efficiency thanks to the frame geometry, the Furtado is the best option if you’re looking for all round full suspension Women’s mountain bike. This bike is even used by the Juliana-SRAM pro team in the on the EWS (Enduro World Series) circuit on the less technical tracks.
If you feel like that isn’t enough bike, the Juliana Roubion may be the one for you. The Rubion shares all the same sizing and geometry as the Santa Cruz Bronson v2 offering a slacker head angle and 150mm of VPP travel to keep it in line with the recent trend of longer, lower and slacker bikes. Longer, lower and slacker basically equate to the bike being more stable at speed and being easier and better to control when descending. Still superb on the flat sections and climbs thanks to shorter chainstays, a steep seat tube angle and the superb VPP suspension linkage, the Roubion is main bike used by the three women on the Juliana-SRAM Pro team to tackle the demanding EWS tracks around the world.
Both bikes come in either the Carbon C or Carbon CC layups, with the C bikes being around 280g heavier than the CC but still retaining the same strength and stiffness delivering the same ride characteristics.
Both of these superb Full Suspension bikes are available to buy in a range of builds across the two different grades of carbon starting at £3099 for a full bike.
