- MONOBLOCK CARBON UPPER LINK
The F-Podium follows the cutting-edge design introduced in other Mondraker models during the past seasons featuring a Trunnion full carbon upper linkage. This new kinematic layout offers a better and more supple rear suspension performance. Also, it achieves a greater lateral and torsional stiffness compared to any other traditional designs, with less lateral stress for the shock ensuring the best performance and duration.
- SHORTER FORK OFFSETS: 44 MM
A common feature to most Mondraker models - already present on all XC Podium models for the last three years – is a shorter 44 mm fork offset which perfectly matches our XCO Forward Geometry F-Podium frame. Shorter fork offsets increase the “trail” which translates into stability gains, increased confidence and grip of the front tire when railing turns. So, it offers a greater feeling of confidence and control backed by our distinctive F-Podium geometry.
- 1X12 DRIVETRAIN SPECIFIC DESIGN
12 speeds are a standard in the market today for both Shimano and SRAM drive trains. We have designed F-Podium with a compact and robust 432 mm chainstay design to perfectly accommodate this type of 1x12 drivetrains.
- HHG INTERNAL CABLE ROUTING: FOX LIVE VALVE COMPATIBLE
F-Podium benefits from our HHG technology with internal routing for the rear brake and derailleur housings as well as the possibility of installing a dropper post with internal routing on any of the models. HHG has some external stops to fix the housings avoiding any possible noise, keeping the design tidier and as clean as possible. Likewise, all four F-Podium models are compatible with the new FOX Live Valve suspension system if required.
- OVERSIZED PIVOT THRU AXLES AND BEARINGS
One of the key characteristics of the great F-Podium performance in relation to other similar models is its exquisite rear suspension action. This is achieved not only with a perfect system layout, kinematic optimization and an internal and exclusive shock customization. It’s also the result of a robust and laterally strong suspension design that avoids any unwanted flex when pedalling up to maximum effort. F-Podium has rigid and reliable 15 mm rear suspension collet axle pivots and exclusive bearings that ensure the best and smoothest possible performance.
- BOOST STANDARD HUB SPACING – 12X148 mm & 15X110 mm
The F-Podium features Boost standard hubs with 110x15 mm front and 148x12 mm rear spacing.
- INTEGRATED REAR SHOCK MUDGUARD
The new F-Podium full carbon swingarm design features a small and exclusive protective shock fender that ensures the best and smoothest rear suspension action. Moreover, it takes care for a superior reliability and lifespan of all moving parts in the Zero suspension lower link by keeping the suspension clean in any weather condition.
- EXCLUSIVE CHAINSTAY PROTECTOR
The F-Podium introduces a new and unique chainstay protector of exclusive design. It’s made of special rubber with absorbent properties that ensures the best possible protection and the quietest ride when pedalling or coasting in bumpy or technical terrains.
- BB73 THREADED BOTTOM BRACKET / TAPERED HEADTUBE / POSTMOUNT REAR BRAKE CALIPER
F-Podium has a standard threaded bottom bracket with a shell width of 73 mm. The headtube is tapered, 1-1/8 "upper, 1-1/2" lower. The rear brake is post-mount with the calliper located between chainstays and seatstays for a more integrated design, improving brake efficiency and minimizing noise and vibrations.
