Premuim Bikeshop, together with a number of other retailers, recently chose the Mondraker Podium Carbon as their Bike of the Year, and just one look at this beautiful and unusual bike will tell you why.
The new Mondraker Podium Carbon has a carbon frame that is 24% lighter than the 2016 model, weighing in at only 920 grams without hardware. According to the manufacturer, the frame is also 16% stiffer and 25% more supple than its predecessor, allowing for superb handling on any trail.
Intergrated Stem Technology (IST) further allows for better handling, and the bike lacks an internal stop to allow a complete steering angle. An effective specific protective rubber between the frame and stem acts as a stop-guard.
What really makes the Mondraker Podium Carbon unique is its design – Red Bull calls it “the hammerhead shark of the mountain biking world”.
