Why We Like The Juliana Wilder Carbon C GX Eagle AXS Trail Reserve Mountain Bike
When we throw a leg over the Juliana Wilder TR we feel inspired to tackle longer singletrack adventures and shoot for the podium at our local XC race series. This ultra-versatile, lightweight trail slayer is build utilizing the Carbon C layup that strikes the perfect balance of strength and responsiveness, while the revolutionary Superlight suspension design offers 115mm of travel to keep us planted through technical rock gardens and on seemingly impossible climbs. The aggressive geometry features a 67.1-degree headtube angle for knife-like precision while still maintaining the lively feel we want for our everyday trail rides, and a steep seat tube angle to put us in a powerful climbing position so we can rocket up loose, steep hills with efficiency.
This Wilder Trail build is smartly spec'd with everything we need to make a sprint to the finish without breaking the bank. The reliable SRAM GX Eagle AXS electronic 12-speed drivetrain shifts crisply in almost any condition and allows us to make last-minute gearing decisions when new features sneak up on us. A lightweight Fox Performance Elite kit handles the suspension duties with the supportive Float DPS rear shock out back and a 120mm Stepcast 34 fork up front to shave grams and help us finesse our way through slippery rocks and roots. Bombproof Reserve 28|XC carbon hoops are laced up to Industry Nine 1/1 hubs to keep us rolling through the increasingly gnarly cross-country race courses we see today and anything we find out on the trail in search of our next search for hidden singletrack gems. And for those of us who seek to make our everyday trails a bit rowdier, we can ride with peace of mind knowing our frame and wheels are backed by a lifetime warranty. Whether were looking to stand atop the podium in our next XC race or just leave our ride buddies in the dust on all-day singletrack epics, the Juliana Wilder Carbon C GX Eagle AXS Trail Reserve Mountain Bike is a short-travel 29er that has us pushing the limits of what we thought an XC bike could do.
