Mondraker built the Podium for pure performance. With no rear suspension, the stiff carbon frame is wickedly efficient and fast. The thinned-down seat stays and seat tube reduce uncomfortable vibrations while the reinforced bottom bracket ensures efficient power transfer. The stem is integrated into the top tube and head tube for weight savings and gives the bike its signature clean, aggressive lines. Fox Performance suspension and 29-inch wheels keep the spec comparable to the latest mountain bikes, and this hardtail powerhouse weighs in at 20 pounds 8 ounces.
