A pure freeride / bike park machine which still keeps the traits that everyone loved in the older Soda’s. That means it’s still super manoeuvrable, adjustable, and loves to fly. Set it up in the short chain stay and short travel for the most playful 650B bike on the market, or put it in the long chain stay and long travel settings for big air stability and blasting on high speed tracks.
The frame comes with adjustable chain stay length and adjustable travel to allow riders to change of the bike’s character significantly. This bike is exceptionally nimble and manoeuvrable in short travel and short chain stay mode (note: chain stays are VERY short in this position, much shorter than most bikes on the market), and still stable at high speeds in long travel with long chain stays. The frame is also very torsionally stiff - not only can it handle all rotational tricks but it also feels great in fast corners where you can often feel other frames flexing.
In the rear end you will find a 4-bar linkage that gives several advantages:
- lateral stiffness of the rear end of the bike
- minimised side loads on the shock, eliminating excessive shock wear and friction
- an optimised shock rate curve.
