The queen of rocks and roll, Juliana's Joplin CC frame is worthy of anything from all day rides to XC racing. Designed and refined for years by Santa Cruz engineers, Joplin represents the height of efficient lightweight suspension technology for a 29" trail bike. This CC-level frame makes use of our lightest and strongest carbon fiber. In real terms, this means we can use less material to provide the same strength and stiffness, all while reducing the frame weight by about 280 grams. The frame is compatible with 29-inch wheels that roll at super-sonic speed, float through the rough stuff and effortlessly conquer hills. Short chainstays and wheelbase make it quick and nimble, and a 142 x 12mm rear axle keeps everything solid. Get on a Joplin and see how fast you can go.
