Roubion is the race bike of choice for the ladies of the Juliana-SRAM Pro Team, and has evolved to meet the demands of their grueling Enduro World Series campaign.
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 new model retains 150mm of VPP travel, but features an entirely new set of links. The lower link now hides completely out of the way, and the upper mounts directly to the top tube to enhance stiffness and bearing life. As a result of the new links, the shock rate is now softer at the top end, which makes for a smoother ride over small bumps. Towards the middle of its six inches of travel, it gets a bit more progressive, so you’ll feel confident and composed when you’re riding through bigger roots and rocks at speed.
As Juliana riders continue to push their boundaries, the Roubion stays right there with them.
