Part endurance racer, part rowdy trail bike…the Joplin is ridiculously fun. A luxurious endurance ride and raucous little trail bike all at once, the Joplin is a Jackie of all trades and mistress to no one.
Mastery of speed and distance is the name of the game here. 29-inch wheels are proven to roll quicker than smaller sizes, with the added benefit of smoothing out the rough stuff with greater ease — just the ticket for going that little bit faster and further than you’ve gone before.
The Joplin also delivers surprisingly quick acceleration and a nimble feel for a big-wheeled bike. Make no mistake, this is a punchy climber with great geometry for charging uphill.
Naturally suited to cross-country ventures, the lightweight carbon and 110mm VPP-travel turns multi-day expeditions into effortless Grand Tours.
Backed up by a lifetime warranty no matter how far or hard you go, the Joplin is the kind of rock-rolling royalty that never grows old.
The Joplin Carbon C S sits at the entrance to Santa Cruz' carbon mountain bike legacy, built with quality components that add a touch of trickle-down performance from their pricier counterparts.
A Fox 34 Float 120mm fork leads the way with smooth control over rocky and rooty trails, followed by a very capable Fox Float DPS shock for composure over bigger hits.
Race Face rims wrapped in dirt-clawing Maxxis tires help you clean sketchy sections of trail thanks to the tubeless design that allows lower tire pressure, giving you more traction when you want it most.
A SRAM GX Eagle drivetrain keeps you moving with 12-speed gearing, while SRAM Level TL hydraulic disc brakes inspire confidence with plentiful stopping power.
A Juliana Segundo saddle and RockShox Reverb dropper seatpost complete this all-around trail machine.
