They call it “The Bike.” Designed with input from legendary rider Fabian Barel, it further advances the Forward Geometry concept by mating either a 10 or 30mm stem with an extended top tube length.
Mondraker began this trend towards longer front triangles and moto like stems a few years ago, before it was trendy, and has continued to evolve the technology with this latest model.
The Forward Geometry concept extends the top tube to the same length as frames with longer stems, so contact points remain unchanged, but the front axle is moved forward for improved traction and climbing. Paired with the aformentioned short stem, handling also remains precise and sharp.
The system utilizes the Zero Suspension System to supply 140mm of buttery travel.
A frame protector around the BB comes stock, and can be removed in favor of a traditional chain retention device.
Weight for the Medium sized frame (without shock) is 2.1 kg.Learn More at Mondraker
