One bike for all

Foxy Carbon combines the agility, handling and lightness of a Trail bike with the great absorption, traction, confidence inspiring and fun of a last generation Enduro bike. Featuring a state-of-the-art Stealth Full Carbon frame, updated 150mm Zero Suspension System, metric sized shock with Trunnion mount and exclusive and evolved Forward Geometry with adjustable geometry, Foxy Carbon turns into a new All Mountain-Enduro benchmark. Currently, we believe it is the best representation of the future of the Mountain Bikes available today.

Every ride will no longer be the same. Set new challenges. Go further. Challenge yourself.

Live an exciting experience

Due to its new stiffness standard, its impressive lightweight and riding comfort, great traction in technical climbs, exquisite handling and spectacular downhill prowess, Foxy Carbon establishes itself as the most complete multi-purpose Mountain Bike we have ever manufactured. Its fantastic pedalling efficiency will be a boost to climb even faster and be able to enjoy the downhills with an absorption, speed and riding precision unknown thus far.

A completely renewed Foxy Carbon

The new Foxy Carbon brings together our best and most sophisticated technologies and means the biggest evolution undergone by a model with its technical features. Its design represents an extraordinary breakthrough, with a front triangle that features a more stylized layout with thinner tubes; an upper tube with a flatter profile that inspires and brings greater speed and lightness, establishing a new stiffness standard, along with a new rear with an entirely renewed and structurally reinforced swingarm. It is the first model we offer in two manufacturing levels Stealth Carbon and Stealth Air Carbon, the latter present in the sophisticated and exclusive RR SL version.

Zero Suspension System has been fully optimized and its redesigned rear suspension offers superior performance. It is the first one introducing a metric sized shock with Trunnion mount and quite possibly the model in which we have spent more hours of development and tested more prototypes with different kinematic configurations until accomplishing the best possible performance. Its more compact rear suspension features a new 15 mm thru-axle pivots with larger bearings, being Enduro branded bearings for the RR SL model. Due to its new kinematics, the structural and technological upgrades introduced and its increased travel to 150mm, its plushness and overall absorption have improved exponentially without losing any pedalling efficiency which makes the new Foxy even more versatile and much more capable, with extraordinary rear suspension performance and a unique Foxy Carbon experience.

On top of that, its Forward Geometry has also evolved so that Foxy Carbon remains being our benchmark model, putting special emphasis on the best possible geometric balance and going a step further, offering the possibility of adjusting the head angle in +/-1º and the chainstay length in +/- 10mm; both features directly inherited from our Summum Carbon and Dune Carbon. 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 to keep being the benchmark.

Technology

Stealth Carbon & Stealth Air Carbon Technologies

Stealth Carbon includes the latest technology in industrial design and optimization of carbon structures, being present in the high-end Mondraker models. Foxy Carbon raises the Stealth concept to its maximum Full Carbon expression being the first model in which we offer two manufacturing levels: Stealth Carbon and Stealth Air Carbon, the latter featuring greater lightness and exclusivity based on a more sophisticated manufacturing and internal elaboration.

Technology

Mondraker 27’5” Forward Geometry

Following the trend that characterizes all the high-end Mondraker models in recent seasons, the new Foxy Carbon benefits from the use of our proprietary Forward Geometry improving performance, backed by a better control of our bike, superior handling, stability and confidence, that in a high-end bicycle are key arguments. The new Foxy Carbon introduces a geometry with a slacker head angle, revised bottom bracket height based on its longer suspension travel, shorter chainstay length with 425mm and longer front center and reach that, as a whole, establish a new geometric evolution according to the needs and rigors of this high performance model.

Forward Geometry is based on a geometry with longer top tubes combined with a shorter stem length. In the case of the new Foxy Carbon 2018 and likewise the rest of Mondraker Forward Geometry models, we spec the standard FG30 stem for all R, RR; XR and RR SL versions available in four sizes S, M, L and XL.

Technology

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 creates a floating movement, giving life to this exclusive top-performance suspension system.

Technology

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

Foxy Carbon features a new optimization of the Zero system, with new kinematics specially developed for metric sized shocks and Trunnion mount optimized to offer the best performance: the most neutral pedalling efficiency with the most supple and capable rear suspension. Thanks to the Stealth Carbon and Stealth Air Carbon construction, the new Enduro bearings, oversized 15 mm axles of the Zero system and its 150 mm rear suspension travel, Foxy Carbon offers supreme riding quality and improved performance that live up to its new status of Mountain Biking icon.

All four Foxy Carbon R, RR, XR and RR SL models feature RockShox and FOX metric Trunnion shocks, with exclusive internal configuration and settings specifically developed for the improved action of Zero Suspension System and its 150mm of travel.

Technology

Adjustable geometry: head angle & chainstay length

Foxy Carbon 2018 inherits the technology also present in our Summum Carbon or Dune Carbon models offering the possibility of adjusting its geometry. According to our personal preferences or type of use, we can adjust the head angle by +/-1º whilst the chainstay length is adjustable by +/-10mm.

* The adjustable geometry kit that includes the additional cups and dropouts is included as standard with the Foxy Carbon RR SL model and framekit, and we offer it optionally for the rest of Foxy Carbon 2018 models.

CSC- Carbon Stiffness Control Technology

The manufacturing process of the new Foxy Carbon 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, being Foxy Carbon the first model in the Mondraker range to embrace this innovative construction that ensures the best performance together with the new Zero suspension system optimization.
