Juliana Strega Carbon C S Complete Mountain Bike - 2018

Strega is the Italian word for witch, and we're not sure if the folks at Juliana picked the name or designed the frame first.

The shock location also creates the most progressive VPP platform in the Juliana line-up, providing a consistent linear feel throughout the shock stroke and a quality of travel that can make some DH bikes green with envy.
