25 Days of Christmas | Day 14 | Scott Solace Road Bike
By Billy Rainford
If you’re serious (or getting that way) about motocross, you need to train off the bike, and that means road biking. If you want to compete at the sharp end of the competition, you will need to be able to push 40K in around an hour. If not, you’re not in good enough shape and your youthful exuberance and natural talent won’t get that done. It’s time to get serious about cycling.
Santa may not look like he rides a lot and that’s because he doesn’t. The roads are only clear 3 weeks of the year up at the North Pole so Santa just loads his Scott Solace Carbon Bike onto his bike rack and drives around like a poser. He’s not pounding out 25-30 minute motos in 100-degree heat like you are, so looking good is 100% his goal.
- Rough roads, marathon races, long days in the saddle- all things that the Solace 10 Disc was put on this earth for. Its HMF Carbon Fiber frame was designed with two zones, a Power Zone and a Comfort Zone, resulting in a stiff and responsive bike that will take a beating all day long without you doing the same. Equipped with Shimano Hydraulic Disc Brakes, you’ll be able to put in those long miles regardless of weather conditions. Find your Solace.
BI ZONE CONSTRUCTIONThe Power Zone takes SCOTT’s Carbon expertise in engineering highly stiff frame structures and applies it to the specific zone necessary for power transfer. The power zone is comprised of the tapered head tube, oversized down tube, bottom bracket shell, and asymmetrical chain stays. The Comfort Zone is comprised of function specific engineering for each frame component, finding the sweet spot in the frame and fork. The seat stays are engineered to work in concert with the seat tube. By connecting them to the sides of the top tube instead of the seat tube, the system allows greater deflection of both the stays and seat tube when bumps are ridden over.
