Soda Air - First Look on More Dirt

The guys at More Dirt have recently received one of our NS Soda Air bikes and got right to the testing. Here is the First Look by Angus McIntosh.


At the begining of last week we took delivery of the brand new for 2013 NS Soda Air into the office for test and review and we are very excited it! So much so, I couldn't wait until the end of the month to publish anything on the bike... With great pleasure, I bring to you a First Look!


We gave you a sneak peak on the MoreDirt instagram feed! Which you can follow here for all the latest hot kit arrivals and see what we get up to on our travels…



The NS Soda Air is aimed at the enduro side of things but NS say it will happily cope with bikeparks, downhill runs or an entire day of climbing which lets face it, has become a very fashionable equation in the bike industry. One bike that can do it all… Where have we heard that before!


At this moment in time I can’t say if the Soda Air is capable of all or even any of this as of yet after a short blast onboard but rest assured when we publish our final review I will endeavor to leave no stone unturned.



The NS Soda came on the scene a few years ago developed in conjunction with Sam Pilgrim as a freeride, slopestyle, bikepark, do it all bike. It was built around a big burly frame with strong components. That was by no means the lightest out there but it was one of the most fun.


Fast forward a few years the Mountain bike industry is obsessed by “enduro” bikes that can pedal back up the other side after ripping down a hill and it left the NS Soda stuck in the stagnant middle ground… It wasn’t a bonafide downhill bike that could win races nor was it able to comfortably be hacked around a trail centre very easily.
