Mondraker was one of the first to bring the now common long top tube, short stem combo to market with their Forward Geometry. It’s everywhere now, but Mondraker’s unique look and lean lines continue to set their frames apart from the rest. To add performance to those aesthetics, they’re now offering their Foxy all-mountain platform with 29″ wheels and 150mm of rear travel to tackle the biggest race courses.

The bike uses a refined layup and their Stealth Air carbon manufacturing process, which uses solid EPS and/or silicone molds inside the tubes during layup and curing and vacuum pressure after each layer is applied. Thanks to that, they claim this Foxy 29er frameset weight is the same as for their 27.5 bike. And it’s as stiff as ever, even with that extremely  thin top tube.

Designed with their Zero Suspension System, the main pivot location was tweaked to increase anti-squat. This helps it stay firm under pedaling efforts. It’s a floating suspension design, too, mounting the rear shock inside the linkages. In our experience, this usually results in a more plush feeling without giving up pedaling performance.

This bike gets a new trunnion mount shock design with 29er specific kinematics, plus 15mm axles and Enduro bearings at the pivot points to prevent flex and binding. Axles are Boost front and rear.

The chainstay length is a very short 435mm (17.13″), with a design they say is optimized not just for 1x drivetrains, but 1×12 drivetrains. Which means all complete bikes are starting with SRAM Eagle groups…for now.

Up front is a 30mm stem and 160mm fork with a 66º head angle. It borrows the adjustable angle headset from the Dune, Summum and Foxy 27.5 bikes to let you go a full degree slacker (to 65º) if you want.

  1. Stupid expensive, and interesting that you list US prices even though Mondrakers are functionally unavailable in the US.
    I can’t help but feel that direct sale would be appropriate here; I can’t see buying any of these without a 20-25% discount off what they say they cost, and they aren’t available in shops anyway.

      • ok, so there’s one shop that stocks them… to you, that means they are available? Mondraker lists 21 shops in the US as dealers, 7 are in CA. So an accurate statement is they are sort of available in 2 states.

        I looked at all the shops within 1000 miles of me (the closest is 200 miles away), none stock anything at all. They’ll order them, and get their markup, but that provides zero, even negative value to the customer.
