Over the years the Soda has evolved into a pure freeride / bike park machine with modern geometry, long reach and slack head angle.


It's means it's still super maneuverable, adjustable, and loves to fly. Set it up in the short chainstay and short travel for the most playful 650B bike on the market, or put it in the long chainstay and long travel settings for big air stability and blasting on high speed tracks.
