Eurobike: 2010 Mondraker mountain bikes

Spanish bikes causing a buzz

There was a definite buzz around the Mondraker stand at this year’s Eurobike trade show, with some great looking 2010 bikes on show.

Good news for British riders is that distributors Silverfish have recently taken on the entire range, so we expect to see more of them popping up on trails near us soon.

The Summum is Mondraker’s pro team downhill bike, which has been piloted by three-time UCI world champion Fabien Barel throughout the 2009 season.

Using the company’s ‘Stealth’ alloy tubing and Zero suspension system, the frame enables you to adjust the headtube angle (61-65 degrees) and chainstay length (435-450mm in 5mm increments). If you want to own this beauty of a machine it’ll cost you £5,499.95.

Less burly but sporting the same Stealth alloy tubing as the Summum, the Foxy R 140mm all-mountain bike looks like it’s going to be a blast.

Equipped with Fox Float RL 140mm forks and RP2 rear shock, a mix of SRAM X9, X7 and Shimano SLX shifting with Formula K18 brakes, this £2,249.95 trail crusher looks an attractive package.

For lighter all-mountain work you might want to consider the 120mm Factor. Available with RockShox Tora coil forks, plus a mix of SRAM X7, X5 and Shimano Deore for shifting, it’ll cost £1,399.95.

There's also an upgraded version of the Factor - the R model (below). This has Fox F120 RL 120mm forks plus a mix of SRAM X9, X7 and Shimano Deore shifting. Formula’s K18 brakes take care of stopping on this £1,799.95 machine.

Mondraker were also displaying a five-strong lineup of street/park/dirt jump bike. Pictured below is the Play 1 dirt jump bike.

You can find more information about these new bikes over on our Eurobike video page now, where one of Mondraker's engineers explains the Stealth tubing system, Zero suspension platform and more.
