2017 Juliana Joplin

Words The Joplin 2
Date Apr 27, 2016

Press Release from SCB
The new Joplin completely defines its own niche when it comes to being a high-end option for women who want a bigger wheel trail bike.

The new CC carbon frame offers all the same great updated engineering and geometry traits of the new Tallboy, but offers a new ‘light’ suspension tune that enables a plusher ride straight out of the gate. And the Juli Furtado-tested anatomical saddle keeps things cusher too.


The plus version of the Joplin.


And the big wheeler.

Low standover height is always under scrutiny, and we deliver a benchmark in that territory in both 29 or 27.5+ configuration. Every size has experienced a reduction over the previous generation, with the large size now a full 30mm lower than before.

Our design team dreamed up the Ultraviolet paint job and matching grips as finishing touches to ensure the Juliana line continues to remain bold, unique, and unmistakable on the trail.
