Santa Cruz 2013 SOLO Aluminum

Tires and frame exp anything full bike shot start with This one.

With Bronson landing amidst more hype than a free-falling Austrian, you’d be forgiven for thinking we’d burnt up on big launches for the year. But the show has just begun. Solo pushes further into the realms of 27.5″ possibilities. Developed using what we learned from Bronson, it takes the design platform in a different direction. The low bottom bracket height, shorter chainstays and 125mm of progressive VPP suspension give Solo its snappy, nimble, ride.

A 68 degree head angle adds climbing agility into the equation, whilst a 5lb carbon frame weight define Solo as the tool for that back country mission you’ve always planned.

Responsibly offered in Mountain Rescue Orange, Solo goes where no bike has gone before.
