In 2003 Cotic started by creating the Soul;

a long travel hardtail, which they wanted to be a strong, light, fun and durable steel hardtail that could use a long travel fork, big tires and proper brakes. After building the Soul, Cotic realised that there were a lot of other riders looking for the same thing. Over 15 years later and Cotic is still creating steel bikes.

Cotic Mountain Bikes has built their brand on these five attributes: Fun, Durable, Clean Lines, Interactive, Confidence Inspiring.

Cotic’s full suspension frames like the Rocket and Flare feature Cotic’s Droplink suspension platform. Droplink is supportive and progressive and is lively and interactive. Droplink has grip to spare on the descents and support and traction on the climbs.

The Soul is still in Cotic’s lineup, but the frame has been updated since 2003 and now features 27.5” wheels and is optimized around a 120mm fork but can be ridden with a 140mm fork. Like Cotic’s other models, Soul features Radical Longshot geometry, Longshot keeps the bike stable in rough stuff, planted in corners, and is accurate in steep tech. Longshot coupled with a short 35mm stem optimizes head angle and turns the bike into a blast to ride.

Since Cotic’s inception they have been striving to manufacture pieces of their bikes in the UK. Over their history they have learned what can sustainably be manufactured on their home turf. Currently, the front ends of several of their suspension frames are manufactured in Scotland.
