And when it’s time to point downhill, its head tube angle and slack geo will navigate the most rocky terrain. Whether you’re out on a solo adventure or a soul-lifting ride with friends, the Joplin will let you soar to new heights.

29-inch wheels

The reduced rolling resistance and larger footprint of 29-inch wheels inspires confidence climbing over obstacles and helps you cover ground efficiently.

120mm VPP™ travel

VPP™ suspension can be optimized to strike the right balance between pedaling efficiency and all-out bump chomping prowess. That means wherever you see "VPP™" you know it's tuned to perform exactly how it should for the purpose it's designed for.

Glovebox

Place your ride essentials securely beneath a new high-quality latch and panel in the downtube. The Glovebox comes with a fitted Tool Wallet and Tube Purse, tailored for the frame to keep your tools close to hand.

Full carbon C and CC frame

CC frames use the very best materials and production processes available. We tailor stiffness for every size to make sure everyone gets the same ride quality. Smaller riders require less reinforcement, and that's remedied with our size-specific frame stiffness tunes.

Made to last many lifetimes

The legendary fit, finish and quality construction put this into a league of its own. The frame, bearings and optional Reserve wheels come with a lifetime warranty and any service is easy to do with our Rider Support pledge.

Fit for smaller riders: Proportional Geometry and frame stiffness tune

Chainstay length and seat tube angle are matched to the frame size (STA steepens and rear center grows as frame size increases) so that every rider, no matter what height, gets the same balance of geometry and handling characteristics.

We tailor stiffness for every size to make sure every rider gets the same ride quality. We take out carbon material as the sizes get smaller where less stiffness is needed. Smaller riders require less reinforcement on frames, and that's remedied with our size-specific frame stiffness tunes.
