Why We Like The Furtado Carbon CC Mountain Bike Frame
Boasting 130mm of VPP rear travel rolling on a 27.5-inch platform, the Juliana Furtado is a versatile trail bike known for its playful agility and intuitive handling. It's a bike we take out for everything from flow trails to long trail rides in the woods, but we wouldn't shy away from taking it to the bike park and hitting some techy black-diamond runs either. In short, it's a recipe for pure fun and a great choice for experienced athletes and newer riders alike.
The current generation Furtado moves to a lower-link driven VPP suspension, joining the rest of the lineup to gain a more active suspension feel with better traction and bump-absorption on the trail. It's designed to pair with a 140mm suspension fork to hit that mid-travel sweet spot that's capable of taking on any trail but remains light and efficient when it comes to pedaling performance. This lets us tackle big mileage days without zapping all our energy on the climbs.
This Furtado frame is constructed from Juliana's highest grade carbon, known as Carbon CC. It takes more work and engineering to build a CC frame vs the standard Carbon C frame, and the result is a frame that weighs significantly less while providing the same levels of strength and stiffness. To guard your investment, the frame has a downtube protector, a shuttle bumper for pickup trucks, and a molded chainstay protector that also serves to quiet the noise from chain slap.
*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.
