New 2015 27.5″ Mondraker Foxy Carbon

Foxy CarbonThey 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.

That is am absolutely gorgeous frame. Video was a little over the top (like they were unveiling the newest iPhone or something) but I’ll let it slide. Well done Mondraker! Hope it rides as good as it looks!

groghunter-Same as my Yeti SB66C . Long is good.

The video is crap because at some point, they decided to spend their focus and attention in developing an advanced product and not in marketing. But if you want a great marketing with a bad product, you already know what brand sells those.

Ok after a video like this one I feel like I just want to buy the bike and frame it to a wall. In the mean time I’ll keep riding my Specialized. (deleted)

48 inches does sound long. Sounds like the kind of thing I would like to test ride before sinking money into it. The book does have a cool look, though- organic, not too flashy.

48 isn’t long if you have alpine trail lines. Run a 40 or 35 slammed on it and you can whip it front to back. Nbd.

Gary Fischer did this over 15 years ago. Show us something new…
