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.
