SOLANO

Ever wanted joining the local club but not having a big enough wallet to purchase a suitable bike? The SOLANO was made for you.

At Asama we believe that it's not because it's an entry level bike that you can't get access to the latest improvements in term of geometry and design.

Performance in road riding is obtained with 3 criteria: Stiffness, weight and comfort.

Our frame made in AL6T6 used technology so far only seen on higher end models. We use double butted tubes in order to reduce the weight without affecting strength. Hydrotubes are carefully hand-welded with FW-tech technique to make the shapes fluid and aerodynamic. The full internal routing complete one of the most advanced entry level bike on the market.

We implemented our 2-1-1 design in order to increase vertical compliance and lateral stiffness. It means less fatigue due to the vibration and a better power transfer. The frame comes in three sizes so you can get a perfect fit.

The fork and the crankset are also in aluminium in order to keep the weight low.

Road specific Shimano Tourney groupset 2x7-speed and double wall mid height alloy rims equipped on Joytech hubs complete the build.

Designed for daily/weekly exercise. These bikes are the best choices for someone that want a good pedaling bike without the compromises of a performance racing bikes. Swift, easy to ride, comfortable, they will suit even the most avid riders. Sport bikes are represented in Trekking bikes, MTB, Fixie and Road bikes categories.

AL6T6: The aluminum alloy used in our frame is top quality imported grade, used by the most famous international brands. The durability of the material highly relies on a good heat treatment process. We believe that our in house equipment and experience with T6 treatment guaranty the best frame strength.

HYDROTUBE: Weight reduction and Strength gain at the same time. It's possible thanks to this technology. After mechanical simulation, we can define accurately which area need to be reinforced and which area can be made lighter. Thanks to Hydrotube we can optimize our frames by forming the frame tubes as simulated, adjusting point by point tube thickness and shapes.

FW TECH: This complex welding technic gives a smooth aerodynamic feel similar with carbon products. It also increases the strength of the weld by filling all the small porosity and angles seen on a traditional weld seam.

2-1-1: A good bicycle needs to be comfortable and efficient. For that, the frame needs to be vertically compliant (filter shocks) but stiff laterally. By increasing the length of the 2 seat stays and welding them far apart from each other directly on the top tube, we improve the vertical flex while increasing the lateral rigidity.

INTERNAL ROUTING: The brakes and/or derailleur cables are routed internally in the frame. It makes for a cleaner, smoother look, protect the cables from external factors such as water or dirt and avoid to get tangled during transportation or off road riding. Better look and better shifting and braking on the long term.

OVERSIZE BB: The bottom bracket is where most of the pedaling forces are applied. By designing it oversize (73mm) we increase the bearing durability and power transfer to the bicycle.

SAFETY INSERT: The rear mesh hanger is designed separately from the frame. It acts as a fuse in case of accident protecting your frame integrity.
