ICONIC 29er DESIGN

Foxy Carbon 29 brings together our best and most sophisticated technologies. Might look alike but this is a dedicated 29 frame, geometry and suspension system. Its design represents an extraordinary breakthrough, with a front triangle that features a more stylized layout with thinner tubes; a top tube with a flatter profile that inspires and brings greater speed and lightness, establishing a new stiffness standard, along with a new rear end with an entirely renewed and structurally reinforced swingarm. Three Foxy Carbon 29 models R, RR and XR featuring our proprietary Stealth Air manufacturing process.

FOXY C ARBON 29 AWESOMENESS
Everything we’ve learnt in the last few years out of making some of the radically best full suspension bikes on the market with the help and expertise of our racing heritage and extensive prototype testing throughout the way is gathered here on this super bike. Combining the agility, precise handling and lightness of a Trail bike with the great absorption, traction and confidence inspiring of a hardcore Enduro bike in a bigger wheeled package, Foxy Carbon 29 will exceed your greatest expectations.

Where are the Foxy Carbon 29 limits? We don’t know. We tried to max it out, but we haven’t been there yet. One thing is for sure: We are enjoying the ride as never before. Every trail feature looks smaller, going fast has never felt this easy. Don’t even try to push yourself too much. You wouldn’t believe you’ll end up loving 29” wheels that much. Don’t blame Strava either for improving all your personal bests. Don’t blame yourself. Don’t blame Mondraker. Blame The Almighty Foxy Carbon 29.

29″ SPECIFIC ZERO KINEMATICS & OPTIMIZED FORWARD GEOMETRY

Zero Suspension System has been specifically developed for 29″ wheels with snappier response and better pedalling efficiency. Modifying rear suspension pivot placements lead to higher antisquat figures that result in crispier acceleration, a perfectly stable and remarkably agile ride that matches Zero’s proprietary planted feeling & suppleness with bigger wheels combination.

Metric sized shock with Trunnion mount, Carbon Stiffness Control upper linkage technology blending carbon and aluminium on the top suspension unique link, stiff and reliable 15 mm collet thru-axle pivots with larger Enduro branded bearings on all three models and same 150mm rear suspension travel as its 27’5” counterpart leads to our most efficient and capable bike with extraordinary rear suspension enhanced performance and unique Foxy Carbon 29 experience.

Forward Geometry has also evolved to accommodate bigger wheels with dedicated geometry measurements to get the best geometric balance, handling, grip and overall performance and keep setting the pace. Directly inherited from Summum, Dune and Foxy Carbon 27’5”, head angle is adjustable in +/-1º whilst Foxy Carbon 29 goes a step further introducing short fork offsets which perfectly match our benchmark long reach Forward Geometry becoming the icing on the cake with clear performance gains: increased stability at speed, better front wheel control and dramatically improved front tire grip.

Forward Geometry is based on the same geometric standard of longer tubes combined with shorter stems of 30mm in length of the original concept we launched in 2013, progressing and being refined and perfected season after season, adopting small improvements and evolutions that set us apart from the rest and help us lead the geometry trend and boosting performance on high-end mountain bikes every year.

STEALTH AIR TECHNOLOGY

Stealth Carbon includes the latest technology in industrial design and optimization of carbon structures, being only present in the highend Mondraker models. Foxy Carbon 29 raises the Stealth concept to its maximum Full Carbon expression featuring Stealth Air, our most advanced, lightest and most exclusive carbon structure based on a more sophisticated manufacturing and internal elaboration. Its innovative organic industrial design features more flowy lines and smoother edges, a very refined finish that make Foxy Carbon 29 an extraordinary model. Its striking look says it all. A slender profile and a more refined, aggressive and, at the same time, seductive design of great beauty, away from conventionalisms on a bicycle engineered to the last detail in 29” set to become the icon of a new generation.

The Stealth manufacturing method is the result of carrying out research on each of the critical processes that make it up, with the objective of improving its features as much as possible. From the selection and preparation of the different types of carbon fiber, preservation and impregnation with epoxy, to their detailed layout and manual application in their specific location, everything follows a strict process set out in the fiber plan written by the engineers. The use of solid internal molds, both in expanded high density polystyrene and in biodegradable silicon, allows for the optimal compression of fibers with the assurance of a clean extraction after the heat treatment.

What stands out above all is our Vacuum Compression Process method, through which the frame is subjected to a process of fiber compression through a vacuum at high pressure. All frames and parts are put through this process after each layer of material is applied. This way, we can remove any potential air bubbles among layers and let us achieve a greater expansion of the epoxy adhesive between the weaves of the fibers. With this we can guarantee the reliability of the structure, achieving figures for strength and rigidity that are greater than those for fibers only applied manually.

MONDRAKER 29″ FORWARD GEOMETRY

Following the trend that characterizes all the high-end Mondraker models in recent seasons, the new Foxy Carbon 29 benefits from the use of our proprietary Forward Geometry improving performance, backed by a better control of our bike, superior handling, stability and confidence, which in a high-end bicycle are key arguments. The new Foxy Carbon 29 introduces a geometry dedicated for 29 inch wheels with 66º head angle (adjustable to 65º as a slacker option), with 160mm forks with short 44mm offsets, 150mm rear suspension travel, short 435mm chainstay length with long front center and reach figures that, as a whole, establish the perfect balanced geometry according to the needs and rigors of this high performance AM-Enduro 29 rig.

Forward Geometry is based on a geometry with longer top tubes combined with a shorter stem length. In the case of the new 2019 Foxy Carbon 29 and likewise the rest of Mondraker Forward Geometry models, we spec the standard FG30 stem for all R, RR and XR versions available in four sizes S, M, L and XL.

Forward Geometry offers greater confidence in technical and steep terrain, with a more forward front wheel axle that provides greater stability even on really steep trails, up or down. This increase in the length of the front center -and therefore on the bike wheelbase creates a more composed and stable bike at high speed in any situation. Forward Geometry establishes a new weight balance, making it possible to load the front wheel much more than with a traditional geometry. This fact allows you to improve your riding and handling skills, offering greater grip on turns, better traction even on really steep downhill trails that seemed impossible to ride at first sight, dramatically improving control.

ZERO SUSPENSION SYSTEM TECHNOLOGY

Zero is the virtual pivot suspension system developed and patented by Mondraker, consisting of two links that compress and control the shock movement at its both ends. The positioning of the shock and being compressed from both sides create a floating movement, giving life to this exclusive top-performance suspension system.

New Zero 29 specific kinematics. Trunnion shock mount. 150mm travel.

Foxy Carbon 29 features a new optimization of the Zero system, with new kinematics specially developed for metric sized shocks and Trunnion mount- optimized for 29” wheels and providing the best performance: Higher anti-squat figures that result in crispier acceleration, the most agile and snappy pedalling efficiency with the most supple and capable rear suspension. Thanks to the Stealth Air construction, new Enduro bearings, oversized 15 mm axles of Zero Suspension system and its 150 mm rear wheel travel, Foxy Carbon 29 offers supreme riding quality and improved performance that live up to its name and 15th anniversary.

All three Foxy Carbon 29 R, RR and XR models feature FOX DPX2 and DHX2 metric Trunnion shocks, with custom internal configuration and settings specifically developed for the improved action of the evolved Zero Suspension System, 29” wheels and 150mm of rear wheel travel.

ADJUSTABLE GEOMETRY: +/- 1º HEAD ANGLE
Foxy Carbon 29 inherits the technology also present in Summum Carbon, Dune Carbon or Foxy Carbon models offering the possibility of adjusting its head angle by +/-1º to better suit our riding preferences.

*The adjustable geometry kit that includes the additional cups to steepen or slacken the head angle is included as standard with the Foxy Carbon XR 29 model and framekit, and we offer it optionally for the rest of 2019 Foxy Carbon 29 models.

SHORTER FORK OFF SETS
Foxy Carbon 29 forks feature short 44mm offsets which perfectly match Forward Geometry with clear performance gains: increased stability at speed, better front wheel control and dramatically improved front tire grip. Extensive testing has proved that shorter fork offsets have its biggest and superior benefits in combination with our genuine and distinctive Forward Geometry concept with its super responsive and direct steering featuring FG30mm stem and long reach. The increase in trail boosts steering stability with a perfectly balanced 66º standard (and adjustable) head angle with 160mm forks.

The result? Shorter offsets combined with Forward Geometry translates into a more playful ride, the feeling that you can attack harder in corners with extra confidence and added grip as a bonus, and a more enjoyable and faster ride overall.

HHG INTERNAL CABLE ROUTING: HIDDEN HOUSING GUIDE
Foxy Carbon 29 benefits from our HHG technology with internal guide for the rear derailleur cable, rear brake line and internally routed seatpost on all models. HHG features some external stops to attach the cables, avoiding any possible noise whilst preserving the most sleek and as clean as possible design.

CSC TECHNOLOGY: CARBON STIFFNESS CONTROL
The manufacturing process of the new Foxy Carbon 29 upper link with Trunnion mount represents an innovative technological solution for a key element in the design and performance of the new rear suspension. It is a 3-piece construction combined with a carbon central section that allows some controlled flex, minimize vibrations, whilst saving a few grams. 8 bearings are present in the upper link: Four in the back -two on each side joining the seatstays, and two in each pivot point with the frame and shock respectively. This innovative construction ensures the best performance together with the new Zero suspension system optimization.

INTEGRATED AND REMOVABLE REAR SHOCK FENDER
The new full carbon swingarm design features a protective mudguard for the rear shock, keeping the suspension system cleaner when riding in muddy or very dusty conditions, ensuring the smoothest and highest performance as well as a superior reliability and lifespan of all moving parts of the Zero suspension system.

EXCLUSIVE DESIGN FOR 1×12 DRIVETRAINS
Following the new trends in the market and as well as Foxy Carbon 27’5” sibling, Foxy Carbon 29 stands out for offering a short chainstay length of 435mm and a more compact and stiff swingarm specific for 1×12 drivetrains.
