A little bit (cross) country. A little bit rock and roll. The Joplin is a bit of an XC wild child, a light bike that's heavy on capability with a "let's go" attitude to any trail. Let's go fast. Let's go far. Let's go until your legs are ready to give up, and then go some more. Let's make every second count. Let's carve rides out of busy days and put those lines on the map on your done list. The Joplin's 29-inch wheels and lean frame float over washboard bumps with the same ease with which it devours jagged ledges. A geometry bred for long days in the saddle is blended with 130mm of travel in the front and 120mm in the rear, creating a capable climber that doesn't flinch when roots get ragged and rocks start to roll. The lower link VPP suspension offers a responsive pedaling platform that's ready to get up and go the moment you are. Whether you're flossing rock gardens or making the rider in front of you your next hare, the Joplin is one rapid little trail fox that will take you farther than you thought you could and give you the confidence to go bigger than you thought you would. With a size range that starts at XS, this bike brings big-wheel benefits to those of us in the fun-size category,, too. And, yes, every size in the line fits a water bottle inside the main triangle because XS doesn't mean "do things by half". Tying up the package is a range of component builds that weave the line between fun and fast, creating a bike that's ready to race the distance or just race the clouds home. So, what are you waiting for? Let's go!
Meet the one bike to rule them all. Meet the new Furtado. The Furtado is more than a bike, it's your partner in grime. From winding singletrack to burly rock gardens, the unmatched maneuverability of the Furtado makes it the perfect dirt-ally for every escape. Re-designed for the 20's, this year's Furtado bumps up the capability to the do-it-all (then do it again) frame. The 27.5" inch wheels fitted with grippy 2.4" tires turn loose lines into Velcro, letting you weave through trails with the confidence of a kid wearing a cape. The 130mm rear travel and 140mm front travel floats over chunky trails while the lower link suspension keeps the traction high, letting you push the pedals without worrying about slipping or sliding. Size-specific chainstay lengths coupled with a relaxed, 65 degree headtube angle create a bike that twists and turns, letting you tackle the unknown with the confidence to commit. From the lighter-tuned rear suspension that ensures full use of the travel to the nimble geometry and selection of build kits, the Furtado puts you in control. Make every second carved from a busy day count. Snake through the tight switchback, then eye up the ledge that's had your number for far too long. The question was never if you'll clear it, but when. The Furtado's balanced design and controlled feel turns to-do lists into just-did-that lists, and questions of when into exclamations of let's do it again!
