VIDEO: 2013 SantaCruz Solo - 27.5" Wheels, Heightened Agility, and 5 lb. Carbon Frame

Steve Peat takes his new Santa Cruz Solo into the wilds of Scotland.



Solo pushes further into the realms of 27.5" wheel size possibilities.

Developed using what Santa Cruz 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.

This film was a collaborative project between Santa Cruz, The Baller Consultancy, CutMedia and Visit Scotland.
