Mondraker Makes Light of Going Fast - Mondraker Podium 2021

Posted by Paul Hoyle on 1st Sep 2020

Mondraker, the Spanish brand famed for it's Forward Geometry, has unveiled a super-lightweight new cross country hardtail. In launching the brand new 2021 Podium, Mondraker have produced the lightest 29er carbon hardtail frameset in the world at a mere 775g (size Medium). 

The Podium is the best advantage possible in XC racing to grab a podium position.

To make the Podium so light, Mondraker have used a Minimal Concept Design and Stealth Air Carbon lay-up to create the new frame together with input from top-level riders.

The carbon layup in the Podium is made from a high-modulus carbon fibres, which result in a stiffer, cleaner hardtail frame that feels more compliant but still offers efficient power transfer.

Mondraker Podium 2021 - The Unfair Advantage

Compared to the 2020 model, the new 2021 Podium now has a slacker head angle of 68.5°, a steeper seat tube of 73° and a shorter rear triangle which combined offers a more balanced feel for climbing prowess and confidence inspiring stability at any speed.

Mondraker founder Miguel Pina said: “We’ve been busy pursuing our aim to create the lightest hardtail frameset on the market, and today we can finally unveil its realisation. The new 2021 Podium represents our core values at Mondraker: creating bikes that feel good to ride, informed by our racing background. With the four different builds, we believe the Podium gives exceptional performance to XC riders – giving them an unfair advantage against their competitors every time they leave the start line.”
