NS Bikes Soda released!

After a few years of waiting, the full suspension bikes and frames from NS Bikes are finally on the market.

Check out the video that tells the whole story of this project:

The Soda is available in two versions. One is a dedicated slopestyle / big air bike with 100mm of travel, the other is a more all-round freeride / enduro platform with 150 / 180 mm adjustable travel.

Soda Slope a dedicated slopestyle/big air bike with 100mm of travel.

Soda FR all-round freeride/enduro platform with 150/180mm adjustable travel.

The Soda features an adjustable chainstay, and is compatible with 10mm bolt hubs and 12mm thru-axle hubs.

Internal and traditional cable routing are available on the Soda.

Both frames have smooth double-pass welding in all critical areas. This is an expensive process that results in a much stronger joint. The frames come complete with a pair of headsets, one for standard steer tubes, one for tapered steertubes.

Super beefy linkage elements are designed to keep the frame torsionally stiff. This is especially important for all rotational tricks. Many full suspension frames can handle big drops, but not many are stable when landing not-so-perfect 360’s.

The concentric BB pivot on the Soda Slope will allow you to run a true single speed drivetrain…

….but you can still use a derailleur on the Soda Slope if you want.

Arriving our shore soon!!! Stay tuned for it!
