Read our first ride review of the Juliana Maverick HERE.
Juliana Bicycles isn’t for everyone. They might be a brand geared toward women, but they’re unapologetic about the fact that not all women will even be interested in their brand. But for the small minority of those who want a bike made with women in mind, Juliana’s mid-travel 29er trail bike, the 2020 Juliana Maverick CC, is just the ticket as a do-all bike made for riding just about everywhere.
The Maverick CC uses Juliana’s high-modulus carbon frame and swingarm, which saves 250 grams over the standard Maverick C frame. and couples it a lower linkage-driven VPP rear suspension. This is similar to what’s available on the Juliana Roubion, just geared toward a bit more mid-travel support. While the Maverick isn’t meant to soak up the trail like the Roubion, the end results make perfect sense for the bike’s intended riders. With just 140 mm travel out back (and 150 mm at the fork) paired a suspension that is more supportive than ever, you get a bike that straight up climbs better than its weight and suspension travel might indicate.
Maverick is designed to fit a 29 x 2.4″ tire with room to spare, or a 27″ plus tire should that be your jam. And as always, Juliana (and Santa Cruz) offers a lifetime warranty for each frameset they sell.
The Juliana Maverick CC is available in two build kits and three sizes (S-L):
Juliana Maverick X01 – RockShox Lyrik Ultimate 150 mm fork, RockShox Super Deluxe Select Ultimate 140 mm shock, SRAM X01 Eagle drivetrain, SRAM Code RSC brakes, RockShox Reverb Stealth dropper seatpost, Santa Cruz Bicycles AM Carbon Bar, and Race Face AR Offset 30 rims to DT Swiss 350 hubs.
