13 reasons to buy

  • Reviewers appreciate the downhill control gained from the 29" front wheel.
  • The flip chip allows on-the-go adjustment to the bike's geometry to suit different terrains and riding styles. Reviewers call it "two bikes in one."
  • Testers relish how the Roubion gains speed, particularly out of tight corners.
  • Experts say the carbon frame is among the lightest on the market for this type of bike.
  • Experts agree the suspension is excellent, particularly how it handles bigger bumps and reduces trail vibrations.
  • The SRAM hydraulic disc brakes receive positive reviews from testers and owners.
  • Reviewers are impressed with the performance of the stock Maxxis Minion 2.5" (front) and 2.4" (rear) tires.
  • Riders appreciate the size-specific cranks and chainstays.
  • The Roubion has clearance for 2.6" tires.
  • Multiple experts like the Burgtec Enduro stem and RideWide handlebars.
  • The minimum rider height for the extra small frame is 4'8".
  • The Roubion's geometry is designed for female proportions and the suspension is tuned for lighter riders.
  • The downtube incorporates a storage compartment for ride essentials.

5 reasons not to buy

  • The Roubion is expensive. Reviewers say the cost of the top build is "eye-watering."
  • Experts are unsure if the cost difference between the Carbon C frame and the Carbon CC frame is worth it.
  • Large sizes are left off the Roubion line, limiting rider height to 5'9" and under.
  • Experts consider the SDG dropper seatpost on the Roubion R build to be low spec at this price.
  • Riders that require the XS frame may be disappointed it doesn't get the mixed-wheel setup (27.5" front and rear).

Bottom line

The Roubion is a mixed-wheel trail/enduro MTB. As Juliana is a female-specific brand, the Roubion's geometry and components are optimized for female bodies. Experts appreciate the bike's ability to tackle varied terrain, enhanced by the inclusion of a flip chip. Testers say the mixed-wheel configuration keeps the Roubion nimble and playful for a long-travel bike. The Roubion has five build options, but taller women (over 5'9") must look elsewhere. Additionally, the XS frame isn't mixed-wheel. The high price may also deter buyers. However, Juliana offers a lifetime warranty on the frame and bearings, which helps reviewers rationalize the cost.

Tested: 2022 Juliana Roubion

Changing the frame to accommodate a 29”/27.5″ wheelset takes what was already a rowdy kind of bike and transforms it into a Swiss Army Knife on wheels.

Tested: Juliana Roubion X01 AXS

It is such a natural descender, infusing speed, control, and confidence into my ride regardless of the type of trail, or trail condition.

Juliana Roubion Review

If you’re aiming for pure speed, a matched 29er might net you faster lap times, especially on tracks with wide-open descents; but a mixed-wheel like the Roubion will almost surely net you more fun. And that’s a compromise worth making.

The Best Mountain Bikes of 2022

…despite this bike’s extreme downhill capability, the climb didn’t suck. We kept up with our friends who were on lighter, all-mountain bikes and soared through everything from wheel-grabbing roots to speed demon corners on the descent.
