FOR FULL-THROTTLE, TECHNICAL RIDERS
The Juliana powers through rocks, roots, and other trail detritus at full speed. One tester cleaned the gnarliest line that Stowe, Vermont, has to offer—while a pod of guys gaped as they walked the perimeter. Both the four-inch-travel RockShox Reba Team front shock and the rear Fox Float RP23 can be adjusted quickly and easily on the fly so you can attack climbs without bobbing. 26.5 lbs; santacruzbicycles.com
Bonus: Also available, as pictured, with less tricked-out shocks for $1,999.
Bummer: Saddle could be comfier.
