Why the Joplin?
When the trail beckons you to traverse above tree line and into unmarked territory, the Joplin is ready to take you there. With its 120mm of VPP™ travel and 29-inch wheels, it’s the ultimate climbing partner to help you reach any summit. And when it’s time to point downhill, its head tube angle and slack geo will navigate the most rocky terrain. Whether you’re out on a solo adventure or a soul-lifting ride with friends, the Joplin will let you soar to new heights.
- Front Travel: 130mm
- Rear Travel: 120mm
- Wheel size: 29"
In the Low position, the shock rate becomes more progressive, particularly at the end of the stroke, and there’s some bottom-out resistance to be gained. In the High setting, the bike rides a little higher in its travel and supplies the rider with more mid-stroke support.

If you're on the cusp between the recommended height range of two sizes, the absolute best thing is to try to ride them both. At a minimum, check the stack/reach measurements on your current bike and compare it to the new model you are looking at to get an idea of a fit you are already comfortable with. If riding the bike is not an option, consider the following.
Not all bodies at a given height are the same. If you have longer legs and a shorter torso than the average person your height, that may push you towards the smaller of the recommended sizes. If you're all torso and arms, most likely you'll want to size up.
|XS||142 - 155cm|
|S||155 - 165cm|
|M||165 - 175cm|
