Santa Cruz 2013 SOLO Carbon

santa_cruz_solo_carbon

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.

FEATURES

  • 125mm VPP suspension
  • 27.5 inch wheels
  • Size Medium Frame Weight: 2295g (5.06lbs)
  • 2x bottle cage mounts
  • Forged upper and lower links
  • Double sealed pivots with grease ports for low maintenance
  • Collet axle pivots and angular contact bearings maximize stiffness
  • Stealth and external seatpost cable routing
  • 73mm threaded bb: creak-free riding and easy installation
  • 142mm rear axle spacing
  • Standard or Direct mount rear derailleur option
  • Stealth and external seatpost cable routing
  • Molded rubber frame protection

Santa Cruz 2013 Tallboy Carbon

SANTA CRUZ 2013 TALLBOY CARBON

The Tallboy carbon has garnered an almost obscene amount of media praise since its introduction. It has been chosen as Bike Of The Year by magazines and websites around the globe, and has excelled at everything from endurance racing to railing some of the sketchier trails this world has to offer. Frame construction consists of our proprietary one piece carbon layup and our proven VPP suspension, yielding a frame and shock weight of five pounds that puts the Tallboy at the lightest end of the class, while at the same time offering stiffness, strength and suspension performance that cannot be rivaled.
