Some people want a garage full of bikes—one for every occasion. Other people want just one bike—the one that’s perfect for any occasion. The Furtado is that bike.
A do-everything bike has a hell of a lot to live up to. It needs to climb as well as it descends. Plenty bikes make that promise; few of them deliver on it. The Furtado is the exception to the rule, which is probably why it’s our most popular model.
We recently revised the Furtado’s geometry, giving this bike even calmer handling on tricky descents, yet a more playful and nimble feel on tight and technical trails. There are people who say you can’t squeeze all of that into just one bike. Those people haven’t ridden the Furtado.
Take the confidence-inspiring Joplin to a whole new level with the 27.5+ wheel. The Joplin is designed to haul ass on either tire, but more rubber means hauling ass with more stability and “bite”. As with Joplin’s cousin, Hightower, and her brother, Tallboy, this bike comes equipped with flipchip technology which allows you to run either tire size. The bike comes with a RockShox Reverb Stealth dropper. Drop that thing down, and with the Joplin’s slightly lower and more laid back geometry, you will be cradled in the ideal center of gravity for even the toughest baby head descents, riding much more generously than you think the 1100 mm would allow. We carry the Joplin 27.5+ because female riders are savvy, tough, and discerning, and deserve a range of choices .
