Juliana Nevis Segundo Complete Mountain Bike $1,650.00
Performance without the price.
In the early nineties, when Juli Furtado dominated the world of women's mountain biking, it was aboard aluminum hardtails. And, while we've witnessed a transition since then to carbon as the favored material for competition, the all-mighty alloy is still preferred when the balance of weight vs. price favors the second. In fact, so little is lost in terms of performance and comfort that the Juliana Nevis Segundo complete mountain bike should top any reviewer's bang-for-the-buck list.
This is in part due to the smooth-rolling 29in wheels (Small and medium only, 26in wheels grace the X-Small), and its impressive parts list; 100mm travel RockShox Recon fork, Shimano 3x10 Deore Drivetrain, and Avid Elixir 1 disc brakes. But, the primary differentiator is the hydroformed aluminum frame.
Starting at the rear of the Nevis, you'll find replaceable dropouts that can be swapped for sliding ones if the thought of a single speed has ever tickled your fancy. The dropouts are connected to shapely seatstays and stout chainstays. This gives the aluminum frame excellent damping on choppy trails and extremely responsive acceleration over variable terrain.
Moving forward, at 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 triangle are material-optimized, top and down tubes with a stout, tapered head tube to tie 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, its short 17.3-inch chainstays (16.5in X-Small) put your center of gravity over 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 stated, the Nevis Segundo comes with a RockShox Recon. This fork is a Solo Air model for easy set up, and it has a TurnKey Lockout for efficient climbing. Shimano Deore shifters direct a Shadow Plus clutch rear derailleur derailleur over a Deore 11-36t cassette. For the front derailleur, the Nevis comes equipped with a Shimano Deore, while a Deore crankset with 24/32/42 chainrings provide smooth, dependable shifting performance. Finishing off the build is a set of the powerful, lightweight Avid Elixir 1 brakes.
The Juliana Nevis Segundo Complete Mountain Bike features a compact bar and grip system for smaller hands, and a women-specific saddle to complete its female focused design. It comes in one color, Pearl White, and X-Small (26in), Small (29in), and Medium (29in) sizes.
