Urban riding is hard on bikes, and urban bikes are hard on booties. Enter Mondraker’s CHASER X range: two eMTBs attempting to bring off-road heritage to the often surprisingly bumpy world of daily urban commuting.

“The new CHASER X range is versatility taken to the max,” according to a Mondraker press release. “Able to get around on any surface or in any environment, [the CHASER X range] offers the responsiveness, speed, and safety of a mountain bike but refocused on an urban setting.”

The mountain bike DNA is quite apparent in the CHASER RX, particularly its suspension an geometry.

Mondraker built the CHASER X and CHASER RX with 150mm of travel up front and 140mm in the rear. Adding to that cushion are 2.6-inch 29er Maxxis Ikon tires.

Both versions come standard with a rear rack rated for 55 pounds, plus mudguards, front and rear lights, DB8 brakes, and a direct-mount kickstand. Mondraker says its aluminum frames are designed with “forward geometry” in mind, giving the Chaser X range “more comfort and safety than a conventional urban…bike ever could.” You can make that determination for yourself with this geometry chart.


The CHASER X is the entry-level model and gets a RockShox Recon Silver RL 29 fork and a SRAM SX Eagle 12-speed drivetrain. On the electric side, the CHASER X boasts a fourth-generation Bosch CX motor and a 625Wh Powertube battery.

Upping the ante a little, the CHASER RX brings a 750Wh battery to the table. An ONOFF Pija dropper seat post (170mm travel), a drivetrain with SRAM SX and GX Eagle components, and a RockShox 35 Silver TK29 suspension fork round out the build.

The CHASER X sports an MSRP of $6,899 and comes in slate or cream, while the forest-green CHASER RX sits at an MSRP of $7,599.

I see a lot of urban MTBs putting a rack onto the swingarm, a significant part of the MTB/urban e-bike crossover function that needs some work.

absolutely agree it’s awful, and everyone is doing it just to use their old frames.

Riese and Muller is one of the only ones I can think of that has the rack on the frame.

Riese and Muller rule. Properly designed urban e-bikes.
