If you want a do it all bike, but above all value manoeuvrability and a compact, playful feel, then the Soda should be your choice. With super short chain stays it just loves to be thrown around and you will immediately feel the difference compared to other “normal” bikes. Works best for big air, bike parks and DH, but still can climb anything. Big bearings, rigid tubes and burly CNC parts make it exceptionally durable. And because both travel and chain stay length are adjustable, it has huge tuning potential. The Soda 2 sits on coil springs and is built using a careful selection of components and offers amazing quality at a very competitive price. The frame has adjustable travel and chainstay length, so no matter what you want to do there will be a setting that is perfect for the application.
Updated for 2014, the frame of the Soda has undergone major revisions resulting in weight savings and some optical and functional improvements. The Soda 2 has proved to be very popular due to the combination of great price and wide range of applications. With the new improved frame we are confident that it will be a winner in 2014 too!
