The legendary Sola 1: Better Than Ever

The Sola platform has been a part of our collection for many years. This performance hardtail has dominated cross-country tracks right across the world but has recently received some game-changing upgrades.

Frame updates

The hydroformed frame of the Sola 1 ensures a lighter bike that doesn’t sacrifice any strength. With the cross-country courses becoming more technical, our designers have improved the Sola’s geometry to be more race-focused. This means the bike is designed to inspire confidence and the rider will be more comfortable over longer rides. The frame is finished off with internal cable routing and can fit an internal dropper post.

“The Sola 1 has been immense and has not let me down in the slightest.
I am looking forward to many many more kilometres on it.”
