New Zero 29 specific kinematics. Trunnion shock mount. 150mm travel.
Foxy Carbon 29 features a new optimization of the Zero system-with new kinematics specially developed for metric sized shocks and Trunnion mount- optimized for 29” wheels and providing the best performance: Higher anti-squat figures that result in crispier acceleration, the most agile and snappy pedalling efficiency with the most supple and capable rear suspension. Thanks to the Stealth Air construction, new Enduro bearings, oversized 15 mm axles of Zero Suspension system and its 150 mm rear wheel travel, Foxy Carbon 29 offers supreme riding quality and improved performance that live up to its name and 15th anniversary.
Stealth Carbon includes the latest technology in industrial design and optimization of carbon structures, being only present in the highend Mondraker models. Foxy Carbon 29 raises the Stealth concept to its maximum Full Carbon expression featuring Stealth Air, our most advanced, lightest and most exclusive carbon structure based on a more sophisticated manufacturing and internal elaboration.
Its innovative organic industrial design features more flowy lines and smoother edges, a very refined finish that make Foxy Carbon 29 an extraordinary model. Its striking look says it all. A slender profile and a more refined, aggressive and, at the same time, seductive design of great beauty, away from conventionalisms on a bicycle engineered to the last detail in 29” set to become the icon of a new generation.
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 represents one of the best innovations and major technology breakthroughs in mountain biking today. A Mondraker’s proprietary geometric concept also featured in our new high performance All Mountain-Enduro segment benchmark.
-Adjustable geometry: +/- 1º head angle
Foxy Carbon 29 inherits the technology also present in Summum Carbon, Dune Carbon or Foxy Carbon models offering the possibility of adjusting its head angle by +/-1º to better suit our riding preferences.
* The adjustable geometry kit that includes the additional cups to steepen or slacken the head angle is included as standard with the Foxy Carbon XR 29 model and framekit, and we offer it optionally for the rest of 2019 Foxy Carbon 29 models.
-Shorter fork offsets
Foxy Carbon 29 forks feature short 44mm offsets which perfectly match Forward Geometry with clear performance gains: increased stability at speed, better front wheel control and dramatically improved front tire grip. Extensive testing has proved that shorter fork offsets have its biggest and superior benefits in combination with our genuine and distinctive Forward Geometry concept with its super responsive and direct steering featuring FG30mm stem and long reach. The increase in trail boosts steering stability with a perfectly balanced 66º standard (and adjustable) head angle with 160mm forks.
The result? Shorter offsets combined with Forward Geometry translates into a more playful ride, the feeling that you can attack harder in corners with extra confidence and added grip as a bonus, and a more enjoyable and faster ride overall.
-CSC- Carbon Stiffness Control Technology
The manufacturing process of the new Foxy Carbon 29 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. This innovative construction ensures the best performance together with the new Zero suspension system optimization.
-Exclusive design for 1X12 drivetrains
Following the new trends in the market and as well as Foxy Carbon 27’5” sibling, Foxy Carbon 29 stands out for offering a short chainstay length of 435mm and a more compact and stiff swingarm specific for 1X12 drivetrains.
-HHG Internal cable routing: Hidden Housing Guide
Foxy Carbon 29 benefits from our HHG technology with internal guide for the rear derailleur cable, rear brake line and internally routed seatpost on all models. HHG features some external stops to attach the cables, avoiding any possible noise whilst preserving the most sleek and as clean as possible design.
-New oversized pivot thru axles and Enduro bearings
Foxy Carbon 29 models benefit from bigger diameter thru axles (15 mm) as well as featuring oversized and exclusive Enduro bearings, increasing lifespan and reliability, able to withstand higher loads and a more demanding ride.
-Boost 148x12 and 110x15 mm
Foxy Carbon 29 features Boost hub with 110x15 mm front and 148x12 mm rear spacing.
-Integrated and removable rear shock fender
The new full carbon swingarm design features a protective mudguard for the rear shock, keeping the suspension system cleaner when riding in muddy or very dusty conditions, ensuring the smoothest and highest performance as well as a superior reliability and lifespan of all moving parts of the Zero suspension system.
-Exclusive downtube and chainstay protectors
To prevent that any stone or hit could damage the downtube or the chain can directly hit the chainstay surface, we have designed exclusive protectors made from carbon and high density rubber respectively, which help preserve and maintain the frameset as brand new.
-ISCG05 / BB73 threaded bottom bracket shell/ Tapered headtube/ Post mount rear brake caliper
Foxy Carbon 29 has the option of installing a chainguide with ISCG05 mount. The bottom bracket is a standard type English thread with a shell width of 73mm to provide the maximum stiffness and reliability as possible. The headtube is tapered, 1-1/8” upper and 1-1/2” lower. The rear brake is post-mount with new location for the caliper between seatstays and chainstays- collaborating on the creative clean lines and exceptional design of its carbon frame, improving brake efficiency and minimizing vibrations.
