Overview

The Soda Slope is a radical bike for big moves that takes over where dirt jumping hardtails are not enough. It's most important feature is that it enables true single speed setups with no chain tensioners or standard derailleur / single front ring setups. The Slope is exceptionally nimble and manoeuvrable with one of the shortest chain stays we have ever seen on production full suspension bikes. It was designed to feel just like a Majesty dirt-jump frame but with a safety valve in the rear end for big hits and high speed runs. We also tested the Slope in a more traditional DH environment, and found that with a longer fork (around 160mm) it can actually ride downhill surprisingly well. Even though the travel is short, the quality of the ride is great. The frame is really very stiff torsionally - we have been throwing 180's and 360's for days on end and experienced absolutely no problems. The suspension won't hamper you- we bet you can pull off just about every street trick that you can do on your hardtail.

In the rear end you will find a 4-bar linkage that gives several advantages:
- lateral stiffness of the rear end of the bike
- minimised side loads on the shock, eliminating excessive shock wear and friction
- an optimised shock rate curve.

Soda Slope is fitted with a Rock Shox Monarch RL shock with custom tune. The lockout option is a really nice feature, making this frame feel like a hardtail when jumping but will open up and save your butt on the biggest hits. It also means that you don't have to put crazy high pressure in the shock to get this characteristic, and can open the lockout if you want to ride some rough off-road sections.

Designed to run with air shocks and very little or even no sag for street / dirt, or with standard sag settings (around 25-30%) for a more conventional feel.

Warranty FAQ

YOU WILL FIND THE WARRANTY CONDITIONS WITH EVERY NS PRODUCT THAT YOU PURCHASE. PLEASE MAKE YOURSELF FAMILIAR WITH THIS. TO MAKE LIFE EASIER, HERE WE WILL PRESENT THE BASIC INFO IN AN EASY TO UNDERSTAND FAQ FORM.

WARRANTY IN OUR BUSINESS IS A DIFFICULT ISSUE - THE REASON BEING THAT ANYTHING CAN BE BROKEN, EVEN IF IT'S A PERFECTLY GOOD PRODUCT. ON THE OTHER HAND, WE REALLY WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT YOU ARE TREATED FAIRLY, THEREFORE A LOT OF CASES WILL BE JUDGED INDIVIDUALLY.
 
1. What kind of problems does the NS warranty cover ?
The following parts do not classify for warranty replacement: bearings, chains, chainrings, brakepads, tires, tubes, decals, saddle covers, grips. Damage to these parts is almost always a result of normal wear and tear, and they should be replaced by the user when they become worn out. The following types of damage does not qualify for warranty replacement: discolorations, damaged surface finish, dents, bent parts, damaged resulting from incorrect assembly or improper use. The general rule is that we will replace parts that are damaged due to normal riding (even if it's heavy duty riding). However parts that are damaged due to crashing, throwing the bike or casing jumps will not be replaced. Damage resulting from this kind of total overload can be replaced under the Crash Replacement policy. In other words, we will warranty most cracks in products for a one year period in case of all NS hardtail frames/components and for a period of 3 years in case of all full suspension and steel enduro hardtails. We will not warranty bends, dents or parts that are ripped apart.
 
2. What do I need to make a warranty claim.
You must have the proof of purchase and you must be the original (first) owner of the product. The proof of purchase is a filled in warranty card together with the receipt or invoice.
 
3. What is the warranty period on your products ?
All NS products (except full suspension frames and steel all mountain / enduro frames) have a one year warranty. All full suspension frames and steel all mountain / enduro frames have a three year warranty. Some may say that this is not a long time, but we think that it's better to give you a clear and solid one year/three year deal than a vague lifetime warranty that has dozens of factors that will void the warranty. We have seen warranties on dirt jumping products that say that the warranty will be void if "the bicycle is used for acrobatic stunts"!
 
4. Can I modify your products
Our official position is NO!! We strongly discourage you from making any changes in the products for safety reasons. Remember that tampering with the products means that you are taking a big risk that the product will fail and you will hurt yourself seriously. However we won't make artificial problems with the warranty - for example, if you cut your dropouts and the frame cracks at the headtube, we will warranty the frame. But if you cut off the cable guides, damage the tube and it cracks - then we won't warranty that case.
 
​5. What is Crash Replacement
Damage resulting from crashing, casing jumps or throwing the bike won't be covered by the normal warranty, but we do offer the possibility to replace the product for 50% of the original suggested retail price. There are a few conditions:
  • we reserve the right to deny Crash Replacement without explaining our reasons.
  • Crash Replacement does not apply to parts damaged in other situations than riding - for example if a car runs over your bike, CR won't apply!
  • Crash Replacement does not apply to complete bikes. It only applies to components made by NS that are mounted in the bikes, all NS hardtail frames for a period of 1 year and all full suspension and steel enduro frames for a period of 3 years from the date of purchase.
 
6. I have a problem with your product - what should I do next ?
Find the documents for your product. Read the warranty conditions, and decide if the problem could potentially be classified as warranty.

Make a photo of the problem and send an email to the company that sold the product to you, asking them what you should do.

Most probably, they will ask you to send the damaged product for inspection to them, or to your national distributor. Remember to make sure that you put the proof of purchase, warranty card and your contact details in the box!
