Towing the line between a fun-focused trail bike and an XC-curious machine, the Furtado Carbon C S Mountain Bike redefines the mid-travel category with a playful attitude. It benefits from a 29in wheel up front to help us hold momentum over tricky roots and rocks, while a 27. 5in wheel out back corners on a dime, plus it makes jumping super intuitive. 130mm of VPP rear travel sees updates to the anti-squat to produce more traction for enhanced performance in technical climbing and descending. Juliana also refined the shock tune to perform for lighter riders, with a predictable, supple feel that’s perfect for all kinds of riding. We are excited to see the Furtado decked out with Glovebox in-frame storage because it lets us keep tools, a tube, and extra supplies right in the bike’s downtube. The Carbon S build is the workhorse option from Juliana, providing an excellent value that starts off with the Carbon C frame construction that’s impressively durable. SRAM’s GX Eagle 12-speed drivetrain handles shifting duties with reliable, durable performance. We love to see the Race Face AR Offset 30 alloy wheels spec’d on so many Juliana’s because they are super durable to last for seasons of heavy riding. The RockShox Pike Select+ fork delivers 140mm of forgiving travel that makes can entertain some chunkier trails, but it shines in rolling terrain when efficiency is key. This mid-tier build is a perfect option for riders who are looking to upgrade to their first carbon steed, or for the experienced rider who wants to add a bike to their quiver without breaking the bank. *Due to unprecedented demand in the global supply chain and the bike industry over the last 18 months, material weight and exact components are subject to change. We are working diligently to keep tech specs updated, and any adjustments will be minor. If you have any questions, reach out to a Gearhead by chatting online or calling 1-888-276-7130.
