Furtado embodies the adventure of mountain biking –hard climbs followed by fast descents, and long days in the woods on two wheels. The advanced VPP (Virtual Pivot Point) design has been refined to create even lower standover heights than the previous model, and the slightly longer top tube allows the use of shorter stems for more responsive handling.

The aggressive, 66-degree head angle now makes the Roubion even more stable when descending at speed. The top tube length has increased to accommodate the use of shorter stems, and the chainstays have been shortened to keep the rear end tight and quick through alpine hairpins. The seat tube angle’s also a degree steeper, which puts the rider right above the bottom bracket, where you’ll be angle to generate positive traction on even the most technical climbs.

The Nevis, our XC hardtail, got on a training program this winter and has returned leaner, meaner, and ready to race. We lengthened the cockpit just a bit, which allows you to run a more modern bar/stem combo, and results in better handling. We optimized the carbon layup through the seat stays and seat tube, and we kept the seat post size at 27.2mm, which adds some compliance you’ll appreciate when you’re 80 miles in to a 100-mile race. All the cables route internally –everything has either a tunnel or an easy-to-route cable guide to make it as hassle-free as possible.
