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 head tube angle, at 67 degrees, is a degree slacker than the old Furtado. We also made the chainstays 10mm shorter, which results in snappier handling and easier navigation through tight obstacles. It’s a powerful descender and nimble climber that more than lives up to its reputation as Queen of the Mountain.
You’ll find that Furtado is now more sensitive to trail inputs, with a softer top end to its suspension. As you move through the travel, however, the suspension gets more supportive and progressive, so you don’t lose momentum over chunky rocks and big roots.
