Your trail, your way.
Named for the founder of Juliana bicycles, the Furtado 2.1 Carbon CC X01 Eagle complete mountain bike is built for long rides, exploring new places, and pushing your limits every step of the way. With responsive 27.5in wheels and a playful demeanor, there’s not much that the Furtado can’t do with style.
With five inches of VPP suspension, the Furtado has enough suspension on tap to make the most of technical trails without dulling the ability for the rider to push it to the edge. As with all VPP bikes, the Furtado’s counter-rotating links are carefully arranged to resist activation by pedaling forces, all but eliminating unwanted bobbing under power. This being the latest iteration of VPP, it’s tuned to provide more midstroke support than previous generations of the VPP platform, giving the rider a better feel for the terrain and a livelier ride feel.
Of course, the poised cornering and playful attitude that are the defining traits of the Furtado are largely due to its highly refined geometry. The 67 degree head angle remains stable at speed, while still being quick to initiate a change of direction. At 16.7 inches, the Furtado's chainstays are shorter than any of Juliana’s other trail bikes, which further enhances its enthusiasm for cornering. At 13.1 inches, its bottom bracket is just high enough to avoid plunging your pedals into rocks at inopportune moments while remaining settled in situations that start getting hairy.
The Furtado is built using Juliana’s top tier CC carbon fiber construction. By using some of the finest, and strongest, raw materials available, Juliana is able to make its CC level frames extremely lightweight while maintaining outstanding impact resistance, exceptional stiffness, and just the right amount of finely tuned flex to cancel out trail chatter. Of course, balancing these factors requires true mastery of carbon fiber, and the design team at Juliana has proven time and again that their command of carbon fiber construction is unsurpassed in the bike industry. The result is a frame that holds up to years of hard riding, provides a comfortable ride, and does so at a very competitive weight.
This Furtado build is dressed in components that accentuate its best traits, beginning with a class leading suspension from FOX. The fork is a 36 FLOAT FIT4 Performance Elite unit, and it's paired with the new FLOAT DPS Performance Elite air shock that's tuned for lighter riders. This setup offers a supple stroke, on-the-fly adjustments at the flip of a lever, and easy tuning for both suspension gurus and those less experienced. SRAM’s X01 Eagle 12 speed groupset provides the gear range necessary to take on big climbs and all-day rides, while the Guide brakes keep speed in check when diving into turns. The Rockshox Reverb dropper post enables the necessary on-the-fly saddle height adjustment, while the Santa Cruz carbon fiber handlebar offers a perfectly tuned balance of stiffness and flex that simply surpasses many of the best aftermarket carbon fiber handlebars available.
