Product Description

Specs

  • Colour: Flat Black, Purple
  • Gender: Male
  • Material: Alloy
  • Rear Travel: 107mm

The Soda Slope is a radical bike for big moves that takes over when dirt-jumping hardtails are not enough. Its most important feature is that it enables true single speed setups with no chain tensioners or standard derailleur/single front ring setups.

The Slope is exceptionally nimble and manoeuvrable with one of the shortest chain stays we have ever seen on a production full suspension bike. It was designed to feel just like a Majesty dirt-jump frame but with a safety valve in the rear end for big hits and high-speed runs. NS also tested the Slope in a more traditional DH environment, and found that with a longer fork (around 160mm) it can actually ride downhill surprisingly well. Even though the travel is short, the quality of the ride is great.

The frame is really very stiff torsionally and in the rear end you will find a 4-bar linkage that gives several advantages including lateral stiffness of the rear end of the bike, minimised side loads on the shock, eliminating excessive shock wear and friction and an optimised shock rate curve. It is fitted with a Rock Shox Monarch RL shock with custom tune. The lockout option is a really nice feature, making this frame feel like a hardtail when jumping but will open up and save your butt on the biggest hits. It also means that you don't have to put crazy high pressure in the shock to get this characteristic, and you can open the lockout if you want to ride some rough off-road sections.
