First Ride Reports

FlareMAX early reviews are in

Make a cuppa and watch Watch Guy Kesteven's review above...

"It's still super charismatic; steel short travel bike, in a way that no one else is making."

Singletrack have a first Looks N Feels doing a good job of explaining the updates, with an early review of sorts...

"I have no hesitation at coming out and saying that the new Gen 5 FlareMAX is a winner. It takes the previous FlareMAX and just makes it a bit better."

Bike Perfect have a five star review...

"...the UKs Cotic are still the only mavericks combining Reynolds 853 steel and short travel in their FlareMax 29er. The 2023 Gen 5 version gets finer sizing grades and significant frame changes to create a stiffer, tougher, better fitting bike but still delivers a uniquely dynamic, organic and charismatic flow state ride."
