INTRODUCING SOLID: THE FIRST CONNECTED, 3D-PRINTED TITANIUM, LIFESTYLE BIKE.
SOLID is inspired by the diverse beauty and soul of Portland, OR. From the urban energy of East Burnside to the raw landscape of Forest Park, the SOLID bike captures the essence of the city and the best of both worlds; hand-built craft meets modern manufacturing. This one-of-a-kind lifestyle bike was designed to inspire everyday cycling. It inspires people to explore their city with a responsive, seamless, solid ride. This is the bike redefined.
With that in mind, we created the “Discover My City” app that allows riders to discover Portland through 5 curated journeys. Whether riders want to experience Portland’s forested terrain or ride in the city – this digital experience guides riders to enjoy the distinct beauty of Portland. The app communicates with the bike to provide guided haptic navigation and brings together key influencers outside of the cycling industry to share their perspectives on what to see, ride, eat, shop, and hear to truly experience Portland.
