The SolarisMAX is our flagship big wheel hardtail: 29er or 27.5+


Singletrack 2018 Editor's Choice Award

see Issue #122

Our fastest hardtail just got faster: SolarisMAX is confidence inspiring, agile and fun, with a planted feel at high speeds on the rocks, and carve-it-up traction in the corners.

The new layout uses our radical new Longshot geometry for sweet, short stem handling, and the bike is now designed around longer forks for 2018. You can run up to 140mm fork for full trail slaying potential. It hasn't forgotten it's roots though: Run the minimum 120mm travel fork on the front, and the SolarisMAX is more than happy whizzing around 12hr long distance races, scrambling up technical climbs, or off on bike-packing adventures in the wilderness. Longshot geometry not only makes the bike confident on steep, rough trails, but adds plenty of space for bags and stable handling for long days in the saddle. SolarisMAX remains as versatile as ever.

As always with our flagship models, a full Reynolds 853 air-hardening steel front triangle is all present and correct. Our signature features such as Ovalform top tube and 35mm seat tube keep the weight, stiffness, ride feel and durability in the sweet spot. Grace, durability, clean lines, great attention to detail.

All of this adds up to give the SolarisMAX amazing adaptability; from sus forked, wide barred trail warrior, to Plus tyred, high traction monster truck, across to rigid forked, map crossing smoothie and everything in between. Where will your SolarisMAX take you?

MAX

MAX by name, Maximum versatility by nature, the SolarisMAX can run either 29 inch wheels with tyres up to 2.5" wide, or the latest 275 Plus sized wheels in 27.5 x 3.0" width.

29" wheel compatibility offers you a huge range of tyre options for carving corners and easy rolling speed, for every condition, and any purpose. You want fast? You've got fast. Any kind of fast you want.

275 Plus wheels with high volume tyres add comfort and traction advantages, with monster truck style rock smothering when you get into really rough terrain.

Why Big Wheels?

29inch or 275 Plus wheels roll easy and give a lot of stability, confidence and speed in rougher terrain, at the expense of being a little heavier and less playful than regular 27.5" wheels. 275 Plus wheels (the 27.5 x 2.8 or 3.0" option) offer more comfort and traction than 29" wheels at the expense of more weight and slower acceleration.

The way the SolarisMAX frame is packaged around the larger wheels (longer rear end, longer wheelbase, taller front end) can suit the proportions of a taller rider better, this will minimise any potential drawbacks, as a taller rider tends to have long enough arms and legs to move the bike around easily. However, if you're after more speed and stability from a bike, you may enjoy the SolarisMAX more than an easier to manoeuvre, but less stable, smaller wheeled bike.

Frames are £649, and bikes start at our Silver build, now with the fantastic SLX M7000 11spd drivetrain, for just (price unavailable).

Moving up to Gold level at (price unavailable) with Hope Tech XC 29 wheels and other parts in your choice of colour, Deore XT or Eagle GX drivetrain, Cane Creek HELM29 or Pike RCT3 fork. Or you can go Gold Plus and get the Hope Tech 35W wheels with WTB Trail Boss 27.5 x 3.0 and Ranger 27.5 x 2.8 tyres.

For the ultimate though, we have the Platinum build starting at £3749 with carbon cranks, XTR drivetrain, Burgtec bars, and Hope brakes and cassette, all in your choice of colour. You can Go Custom on all our builds and add different brakes or wheel options, for example.

There are stem length options and a bunch of different handlebars so you can tailor your bike just as you want it.

Head to the configurator to have a play.


Cotic Factory Collection

We now have a Factory Collection option on the bikes. Come down to our base in the heart of the Peak District, and we will set up your bike, the suspension, fit pedals, get you all comfortable. You can even take your new Cotic out on its maiden voyage around our demo loop, straight from our workshop door.

Just tick the Factory Collection option on your order and we will look forward to seeing you. We'll contact you once we have received your order, and arrange a day that suits you for your visit (Monday - Friday).

Big wheels sound like they aren't for you, but still want a beautiful handling trail hardtail? You need the Soul.

Like what the SolarisMAX has to offer, but want all that in a full suspension bike? You need the super capable all rounder, the FlareMAX.

If you are in the UK and want to try a SolarisMAX for yourself? Contact Sam the Demo Man via our Demo Page and see about getting a ride on a bike on your local trails.



New Longshot geometry brings a new balance and capability to the SolarisMAX. Long frame, matched with a responsive stem in the 30mm-45mm length range is matched with a slacker head angle to balance out the handling for a beautifully controlled and exciting ride.

Updated frame design with experience from our droplink bikes brings increased fork capability. The new SolarisMAX is designed around 120mm forks, with up to 140mm fork capability for full trail slaying.

The size range has also been increased for 2018 with the re-introduction of a small size.

As the SolarisMAX also tends to get used for big rides and bikepacking as well, we have added a second set of bottle bosses within the front triangle. The length of the new bikes has allowed us to add this on the down tube, so there are now two sets of bottle bosses - one right near the bottom bracket, and one in the more traditional middle of the tube location. Either you can run two bottles, or with a side loading cage on the lower position you would be able to carry a bottle and install a large frame bag.


Cotic frames are designed, developed, engineered and tested entirely by us at our base in the Peak District, near Sheffield in the UK. Our founder - Cy Turner - is the lead designer and engineer, and our frames are rigorously ride tested by everyone at Cotic, and our Race Team. They are fully certified and lab tested in excess of the requirements of ISO4210 safety standards.

This frame is hand made in Taiwan by our specially selected framebuilder, chosen because of their vast experience with our favourite materials, and their top quality finish. They are the best in Taiwan for what we need, and have been making our frames to our high standards since day one.

Each frame is dip coated inside and out with zinc phosphate before painting, to prevent corrosion and ensure the best paint finish. After we've agonised over the colours, designs and decals the frames are painted to the highest quality including a protective clear coat, before extensive QC by our agent in Taiwan. Once the frames reach us in the UK, we carry out further QC, and prep the frames for headset and bottom bracket installation.

As always, all complete bikes are built to order by us here in the Peak District, to the exact spec of your choice. We build your bike for you.

All our bikes are hand assembled to order here in Sheffield by Paul, Cy, Richard or Will. If there's anything on the spec you're not sure about, or don't need, give us a ring to discuss. We'd much rather leave something off you don't need and charge you a bit less than waste a perfectly good part you'll not use when we can put it on someone elses bike. Better for you, better for us, less waste, so better for everyone.

When ordering, you can choose key components to help you get the fit you want on your bike (contact us if you need help), but you can also go custom if you want to personalise your build still further. Many of our builds can be customised extensively, with headset, brake, wheel and fork travel options available.

The chart is a guide to frame size. The SolarisMAX features Longshot geometry.

This new approach has brought larger reach steps between sizes to allow everyone to get their stem nice and short. We recommend aiming to size your bike with a 35mm stem if possible. Wide bars and short stems make for very responsive steering, so we have slackened the head angle to balance this out, and steepened the seat angle to keep you in the in middle of the bike. The result is a beautifully balanced ride, with stable, confidence inspiring feel at speed, with think-and-you're-there steering and amazing front end grip for slicing through the singletrack. If you prefer your handling slightly more conventional, simply size down, add a 50mm stem and a longer dropper post to get your pedaling height and away you go.

If you would like us to help you out with sizing, or are on the cusp of two sizes then drop us a line at size@cotic.co.uk or give us a call on 07970 853531 and we'll be happy to discuss set up based on what you're riding at the moment.
