Mondraker has released details of what it describes as a 'new standard' in cross-country cycling - it's full carbon Podium.

The brand's engineers have been hard at work creating a build with a lower front end, achieving this with a quirky, yet aesthetically clean 'integrated stem'.

The press release states: "We decided to copy one of the greatest of all time - Mr. Mies van der Rohe (“less is more”). We took off the stem and made it part of the frame. This allows us to shorten the steering tube and strengthen the front area of the bicycle for a better force transmission from your upper body to the trail."




Having used a proprietary fabrication process, the brand has shaved several grams of its predecessor, with a Large frame size coming in at under 1,000 grams fully painted.

A patent is pending on the steering system, dubbed IST, which "limits the steering angle to ensure the frame stays fresh." Riders will be able to fine tune the stem with +/- 5mm in X and Y axis, with an eccentric aluminum insert for the most precise adjustments.

Silverfish carries the Mondraker brand in the UK.
