First Look: Rocky Mountain Solo

Built to be tough and up for an adventure

The Canadian mountain bike brand Rocky Mountain steps into the drop bar segment with a dual purpose bike. The new Solo will be offered in two versions the Solo 50 for $1899 and the Solo 70 for $2549. We received the Solo 70 as our test bike with SRAM 1x Force drivetrain and FSA Gossamer Pro ABS BB386EVO crankset with a 40 tooth chainring. The frame is butted 6061 alloy with a zero stack tapered headtube. Asymmetrical chainstays and 1x only configuration with flat mount disc. There is a Carbon fork that uses a 15×100 thru axle. The frame fits up to 700x40mm or 650Bx2.2 tires. There is a BB386 bottom bracket and the frame has internal cable routing as well as dropper post compatibility.There is a 12X142mm thru axle for the rear and both fork and frame have rack and fender mounts.

You can see the asymmetrical chainstays and the 1x drivetrain.
The SRAM XG 1150 10-42 cassette gives a vast range of gears for any adventure.
Tapered headtube and beefy carbon fork.
