I recently took my Juliana Wilder X01 AXS TR RSV on an epic adventure through the mountains. Another thing that needs to be prepared in advance is booking accommodation. This time, I still booked accommodation on Skyscanner, hoping for a good rest.
The climb was grueling, but the bike’s full suspension and lightweight carbon CC frame made the climb feel smooth and easy. the RockShox Pike Ultimate RC2 fork provided plenty of support to absorb the impact of the rocky terrain, while the rear-mounted RockShox Super Deluxe Ultimate RCT shock kept the rear tires anchored to the ground, allowing me to maintain traction and climb with confidence. the SRAM X01 Eagle AXS 12-speed drivetrain made shifting error-free, even when grinding over steep slopes. Although the climbs were challenging, I felt comfortable on the ride thanks to the Wilder’s precise handling and responsive brakes.

Juliana Wilder X01 AXS TR RSV/Carbon CC vs Specialized Epic EVO Pro
First, while the Specialized Epic EVO Pro may be more affordable and offer higher overall package compatibility, it has a shorter rear cushion travel compared to the Juliana Wilder. This may affect its performance on rough terrain. In addition, the Juliana Wilder is much lighter than the Epic EVO Pro, which may make it more agile and responsive on mountain trails.
However, the Specialized Epic EVO Pro is still a quality full-suspension mountain bike with its own set of advantages. Its shorter rear cushion travel allows it to be more responsive on tight and technical trails. And its overall kit compatibility can allow for more customization and upgrades.
Ultimately, the choice of these two bikes will depend on the rider’s specific needs and preferences. If weight and performance on rough terrain are top priorities, the Juliana Wilder X01 AXS TR RSV / Carbon CC is probably the better choice. If customization and versatility are more important, the Specialized Epic EVO Pro may be a good choice.
Juliana Wilder X01 AXS TR RSV/Carbon CC vs Santa Cruz BLUR X01 TR / Carbon CC
When comparing these two bikes, it is important to note that both are actually from the same brand. There are many similarities in terms of their high-quality components and overall performance.
However, the Juliana Wilder X01 AXS TR RSV / Carbon CC is designed specifically for women, with geometry settings and component configurations tailored to the female rider. It also features electronic shifting for a smoother, more precise shifting experience.
In contrast, the Santa Cruz Blur X01 TR/Carbon CC is part of a regular series with a geometry setup and component configuration more suited to men. It also lacks electronic shifting, which may be a consideration for riders who value the convenience and precision of this feature.
Ultimately, the choice between these two bikes will depend on the rider’s specific needs and preferences. Female riders who want a bike tailored to their needs may prefer the Juliana Wilder X01 AXS TR RSV / Carbon CC, while male riders who want a more traditional geometry setup and component configuration may prefer the Santa Cruz Blur X01 TR / Carbon CC.
Juliana Wilder X01 AXS TR RSV/Carbon CC vs Trek Supercaliber 9.9 XTR
First, the Trek Supercaliber 9.9 XTR uses Shimano’s shifting system. The Juliana Wilder X01 AXS TR RSV / Carbon CC uses SRAM’s electronic shifting system. The choice between these two systems will ultimately come down to personal preference. Because both offer smooth and precise shifting.
Another key difference is the cushion travel of these two bikes. The Trek Supercaliber 9.9 XTR has a shorter cushion travel compared to the Juliana Wilder X01 AXS TR RSV/Carbon CC. This allows it to be more agile and responsive on smoother terrain. However, the Wilder’s longer cushion travel allows it to be more capable and comfortable on rougher terrain.
Ultimately, the choice between these two bikes will depend on the specific needs and preferences of the rider. If you prefer shorter suspension travel and Shimano shifting system, the Trek Supercaliber 9.9 XTR may be the better choice. If you prefer longer suspension travel and SRAM electronic shifting system, then the Juliana Wilder X01 AXS TR RSV/Carbon CC may be the better choice.
Juliana Wilder X01 AXS TR RSV/Carbon CC vs BMC Fourstroke 01 TWO
The Juliana Wilder X01 AXS TR RSV/Carbon CC uses carbon fiber wheels, which are lighter and more responsive than the aluminum wheels used on the BMC Fourstroke 01 TWO. Additionally, the high-end drivetrain on the Wilder may offer smoother and more precise shifting compared to the lower-end drivetrain on the BMC Fourstroke 01 TWO. Another noticeable difference is the suspension travel of the two bikes. The Juliana Wilder X01 AXS TR RSV/Carbon CC has a longer suspension travel than the BMC Fourstroke 01 TWO, which can make it more capable and comfortable on rough terrain.
Overall, the Juliana Wilder X01 AXS TR RSV/Carbon CC is a higher-end mountain bike than the BMC Fourstroke 01 TWO. It has a premium component configuration and longer suspension travel. While the BMC Fourstroke 01 TWO may be a more affordable option, riders who prioritize performance and comfort may prefer the Juliana Wilder X01 AXS TR RSV/Carbon CC.
Above is our test of the Juliana Wilder X01 AXS TR RSV/Carbon CC. This high-end full-suspension mountain bike has incredibly soft and comfortable suspension capabilities. I particularly love the frame, geometry, and saddle shape that are designed specifically for female riders and can better accommodate their physical structure. You can ride it on bumpy roads or smooth trails and enjoy the freedom of sweating it out!
