Santa Cruz has had some success with their first 27.5 wheel’d bike, the Bronson, and now there is another bike they’ve developed called the Solo. The Solo video with Steve Peat inside is a must see.

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, while a 5.73 lb aluminum frame weight define Solo as the tool for that back country mission you’ve always planned. Solo goes where no bike has gone before.
