Hydro-formed alloy frame The Sola SLD frame is manufactured from hydro formed, butted 6061 alloy tubing making for a very strong frame. For this kind of application - the XC hardtail, a lightweight yet strong aluminium frame is a viable cost effective option. Hydro forming is a process to shape alloy tubing from the inside with pressurized water and/or oil, into a negative mold cavity, resulting in stronger - shaped - thin wall tubing. Sola SLD is a relatively compact frame, with low standovers on smaller sizes, and already a good unisex frame fit.
Silverback Ladies Design means that the bike is set up to better suit women's anatomy and body proportions. This on the Sola means narrower handlebars, thinner grips, adjusted gear ratios, shorter stem and a women's specific saddle.
