Why We Like The Furtado Carbon CC X01 Eagle Mountain Bike
Built for the best riding we'll ever do the Juliana Furtado Carbon CC X01 Eagle Mountain Bike is designed for trail and cross-country ripping. This version of the Furtado is designed around Santa Cruz's Tallboy, and has the numbers and riding characteristics to match. With its genre-blending Virtual Pivot Point(VPP) linkage, we get a bike that's as capable on technical climbs as it is on the descents. The Furtado does it all, from weekly skills clinics to the weekend girls riding getaway.
Geometry on the Furtado is as dialed as we expect a modern-day trail and cross-country bike to be. With a slack, steep, and long treatment detailing the frame from the head-tube all the way to the rear axle. The new frame design has been outfitted with a 65.4° head-tube angle and that's paired with a 27.5in wheel. The smaller wheel helps us pick lines through technical chunder and the slacked-out head-tube angle has us approaching big features with confidence. The seat-tube angle is a nice and aggressive 77°(size M), meaning churning up big fire roads is more manageable than ever.
The new Juliana Furtado promises to be one of the most fun and capable bike in our garage. This 27.5in wheeled machine is as comfortable on the descents as it is on the climbs, and the dialed geo and spec has us more confident and comfortable than ever when things get hairy. Juliana builds this bike for those of us who aren't just here to race, but want to crush trail during the week too. This bike has us more confident than ever, and having more fun than we've had aboard any other bike.
*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.
