PRESS RELEASE: Cotic
The Flare combines the DNA of our Rocket enduro bike with the light, agile, subtle feel of our legendary Soul
to bring a fun, fast, endlessly addictive ride into your life.
The Flare runs 27.5" wheels with up to 2.6" tyres, 140mm forks, and 125mm rear travel. At heart the Flare is a technical trail tearaway. Lighter and easier to move around than our MAX
29er bikes, with more compact dimensions than our enduro focused Rocket
, and droplink suspension brings more capability than our hardtails.
The Flare excels in tight, close quarters technical trail work. It ducks and weaves, pops and wheelies, scrabbles and clambers in and out of the tightest spaces. It sports our radical Longshot geometry, flows like water down singletrack, climbs beautifully, yet exudes confidence and pin sharp accuracy exactly when you need it in bigger or steeper terrain.
As with all Cotic bikes, the frames' steel construction is compliant and naturally ground moulding. The Flare uses Reynolds 853 super strong steel for it's made-in-the-UK front triangle. This includes our custom ride tuned Ovalform top tube which helps to deliver sublime trail damping and that signature Cotic feel; lively and fun, yet stable and controlled.
As a droplink bike, it shares all of the clever features we include across the range including the integrated One Up top guide and double duty seatstay pivot / brake bolt.
