At Westbrook Cycles, we are proud to be working closely with, and representing Mondraker both in our store in North Yorkshire and through our website. The Mondraker range of bikes has always massively appealed to us, with many of our staff riding these bikes outside of work.
Although we stock and supply the full range of Mondraker Mountain Bikes, there’s one variant of Mondraker Bike which stands head and shoulders above the competition, that’s their downhill mountain bike range which truly stands out.
It’s not just in the amateur world, where Mondraker bikes excel at going down hills and trails - fast. Mondraker now have plenty of downhill world cup wins to speak of, and the geometry of the Mondraker full suspension bikes allow trails and downhill courses to be tackled with maximum confidence and performance.
The secret behind the brilliant performance of these bikes downhill, has a lot to do with frame geometry. Mondraker were the first bike brand to feature the now standard geometry of a longer top tube, as well as a shorter stem - to massively increase handling on all kinds of off road terrains and environments. This geometry is incredibly rewarding on engaging downhill runs, where the geometry requires the rider to push themselves - getting the chest forward and really driving each and every turn, this geometry is designed for maximum attack. Having said that, during standard riding conditions, the geometry of these bikes does not feel strange in any way.
One of the most innovative features of the Mondraker range is the Zero Suspension design, which uses a dual pivot. This design has been in use now for over ten years, and deploys a floating shock that is compressed by the bottom link as well as the top links. This makes for an incredibly responsive rear suspension, which feels lively across smaller bumps but can also take big hits well. This design also means that there is no pedal loss, no pedal kickback as well as no brake jack - hence the name, zero.
The Mondraker Summum is the ultimate downhill bike within the range, it’s a bike which you can really point at any downhill trail and ride with complete confidence. You can view the full range of Mondraker Full Suspension Downhill Bikes above, and as always - get in touch if you have any questions about the collection.
All of our staff have had extensive internal and external training across this brand, and the vast majority of our staff are downhill nutters - so are well placed to answer any questions or queries you may have.
Once you have chosen your bike, ordering could not be easier and we also have flexible payment options to make your dream bike more accessible.
