The Queen of rocks and roll. 29” wheels float you through the rough, in a multi-award winning suspension package that effortlessly crowns hills.

Designed and refined for years by Santa Cruz engineers, Joplin represents the height of efficient lightweight suspension technology for a 29" trail bike. Worthy of anything from all day rides to XC racing, we offer a handful of kit options and upgrades to suit your needs. A glowing matte Siren Red paint job completes this look to make you bright and bold out on the trail.

Advances in our carbon engineering means we're now able to offer our Joplin carbon frame in two options, bringing prices on our entry level carbon builds cascading down.

We can't vouch that the Lord will buy you one... but Joplin certainly makes amends for the lack of high-end women's mountain bike options that went before.
