Strega is the Italian word for witch and we are not sure if the folks at Juliana picked the name first or the color as it matches a certain skin tone of the Wicked Witch of the west pretty close. Either way, you're in for a wicked good time as you and Toto get aggressive with the Strega's slack angles and efficient yet plush VPP suspension design. The Juliana Strega Carbon C S Complete Mountain Bike packs all the features you would want in a hard-hitting trail bike and give you all the speed you'll need keeping you from getting burned at the stake.
The Strega is unique in the world of women's mountain bikes. It certainly takes a witchy woman to extract all that is on offer from this big-hit bike and it is the rowdiest most capable women's bike we have come across. An incredibly slack head tube angle is adjustable with a simple re-position of the flip-chip on the linkage, so you can customize the ride from the higher, enduro and trail taming 65-degree head tube angle, to a downhill worthy 64.5 degrees. This in turn drops the bottom bracket and elongates the wheelbase. Low and slack indeed, offering plenty of composition at speed yet agile enough you can still take the bike anywhere and have a fun ride. Key in allowing this bike to pedal well up sheer terrain is the steep 74.5-degrees seattube angle. You can really get your weight forward encouraging you to attempt the sharpest uphill switchbacks without resulting in extreme body-English while your power is right over the pedals.
The Strega's VPP suspension design takes design ques from the Santa Cruz V10 and Nomad with its lower link location. Nestled in the lower-link is the RockShox Super Deluxe R shock, with nearly 7 inches of suspension, positioned in a way to keep the bikes center-of-gravity as low as possible. No detail goes unnoticed with the Julina team and the shock has its own fender shielding it from errant trail debris. This location also creates the most progressive VPP platform in the Juliana line-up. That means there’s a consistent linear feel throughout the shock stroke and the quality of travel can make some DH bike green with envy. New eye-to-eye lengths afford the use of the metric shock standard gaining increased bushing overlap for a smoother stroke encouraging descending with reckless abandon and still allows room for a full-size water bottle to sit inside the downtube. The shock receives a custom tune for lighter, yet no less heavy hitting, riders.
SRAM's GX drivetrain matches the value focus on offer from the Strega Carbon C frame, with a super wide-range cassette capable of taming any gradient climb while offering enough top-end to never run out of gear. A 170mm RockShox Lyric RC fork guides the bike with its 35mm stanchions and simply refuses to deflect off of its line. Also invited the oversize part are the Race Face 35mm Aeffect R bars and stem.
The Strega Carbon C uses Juliana's second-tier carbon, which hosts similar construction to their higher grade CC carbon, but uses a different grade carbon material that adds tiny bit of weight but saves big on cash. The carbon is construction is identical to the one-piece carbon layup technique as their CC level, with unidirectional carbon piles wrapping between tubes allowing the frame to absorb impacts more effectively, while an inner bladder applies outward pressure against a mold while the carbon is curing to reduce resin pooling. This results in a frame that looks as good as it rides and Julina backs up the frame with a lifetime warranty.
