Juliana Joplin – 29
As a brand, we carry Juliana because we believe you can’t just give a mountain bike a fresh paint job and call it “women specific”. Juliana is committed to bringing together like-minded riders and discovering what mountain biking means to women. The Joplin shares the same platform (110 mm rear travel and dual wheel compatability) as the Santa Cruz Tallboy, but with suspension tuning specific for lighter riders. A few years ago , we watched the Joplin 29 change the short travel “big bike” paradigm for SG’s women riders, and 2017 geometry updates only serve to make the Joplin more confidence inspiring – not an ounce of maneuverability has been spared.
