Description

Smooth and fast.

The Nevis Segundo is an indisputable performance bargain. But, if your tastes demand more than entry-level kibbles and bits, then the Juliana Nevis Primeiro complete mountain bike will satisfy with a FOX 32 FLOAT leading the way and a Shimano SLX/Deore component mix providing smooth and fast shifting.

For uninhibited mountain capabilities, the Juliana Nevis features a hydroformed frame that rides on 29in or 26in wheels, depending on size. The X-Small uses 26in wheels in order to achieve better proportions, while the Small and Medium opt for 29in rolling stock. At the rear of the Nevis, you'll find replaceable dropouts which could be swapped for sliding ones if the thought of a single speed ever tickles your fancy.

The dropouts are connected to shapely seatstays and stout chainstays to give the Nevis excellent damping on choppy trails with extremely responsive acceleration over multiple types of terrain. Moving forward, to the bottom bracket junction, you'll discover an asymmetric, forged chain stay yoke that provides maximum strength and stiffness while ensuring adequate tire and chainring allowances.

Connecting the rear triangle to the front are material-optimized top and down tubes with a stout, tapered head tube tying everything together. This combination ensures the best mix of strength, weight, and stiffness. But, these design features would be useless if the geometry was cobbled from inexperience or archaic industry norms.

Instead, the Nevis is graced with Juli Furtado's mountain biking expertise and has short, 17.3 inch chainstays (16.5in X-Small) to place your center of gravity closer to the rear wheel for a surprising amount of flick-ability. Adding to the aggressive race feel is a short head tube, that combined with a 70.5 degree (68 degree X-Small) head tube angle, gives you a compact, fast-steering front end that allows you to get into a powerful cross-country position.

As previously mentioned, the Nevis Primeiro comes with a FOX 32 FLOAT. This lightweight fork is equipped with the Climb, Trail, Descend (CTD) open cartridge damper for intuitive tuning. The small and medium frames use a 100mm fork, while the X-Small has a 120mm fork. Shimano SLX shifters direct an SLX Shadow Plus clutch rear derailleur over a SLX 11-36t cassette. For the front derailleur and crank, Shimano Deore ensures precise shifts while 24/32/42 gearing provides an ideal ratio spread.

A set of powerful Deore brakes keep speed under control, while hand-built wheels with WTB ST I19 rims laced to a SRAM front hub and Shimano M756 rear hub offer low weight durability. The Juliana Nevis Primeiro Complete Mountain Bike features a compact bar and grip system for smaller hands, and a women-specific saddle to complete its female-focused assignment. It comes in one color, Pearl White, and X-Small, Small, and Medium sizes.

Perfect hardtail for short women!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Women do your research! Hand down the BEST hardtail 29er out there for a woman, especially shorter ones like myself. Of course I could have gotten a Specialized, Cannondale, or Giant but let's face it...there's something about the Juliana brand (line of Santa Cruz for women) that is fierce. The components are a bang for your buck at this price point and well the frame and geometry can't be beaten for short gals alike. I'm 5'2" (27.5" inseam) and tried on the XS with 26" wheels at a bike shop. I flat footed it no problem, but I wanted the roll over of a 29er. They didn't have a SMALL in stock, so took my chances at it online. Surprisingly, I feel very comfortable on this 29er and I'm very glad I got the SMALL with the bigger wheels which are also tubeless ready! It rides beautifully, and many will awe at its glossy white frame finish. One thing I could do without is the compact grips, they are quite small, but the saddle makes up for everything since it's very comfortable without feeling like there is too much.

Perfect hardtail for short women!
