Mondraker Summum Carbon Pro Team 27.5 Downhill Frame 2015
Mondraker Summum Pro Team 27.5 DH Frame
High performance Spanish bicycle manufacturer Mondraker, has given its World Cup winning Summum DH bike an all new carbon fibre heart and along with 27.5 wheels have created their ultimate downhill race machine. When the Mondraker Summum first appeared on the start line of the World Cup downhill circuit a new standard in performance was immediately set. Designed to be fast and win races the original Summum was constructed around a cleverly designed aluminium main frame which delivered riders a strong, high performance downhill bike which was not only blisteringly fast but out-of-the-box offered an overall bike weight thought previously to be the reserve of the long travel trail bikes crowd. Fast forward 5 seasons and the 2015 Summum Carbon still shares the same core values as the original race winning machine but with an all new carbon heart crafted into place. New bearings, oversized axles and a new lower linkage are held in place with conical expansion bolts for maximum stiffness while out back Mondrakers proven Zero Suspension System keeps the 205mm of rear wheel travel in check. Constructed from Stealth profile carbon fibre the latest Summum draws on everything the Alicante based brand has learned from years racing on the World Cup circuit and takes into account everything they have learnt in developing carbon fibre bicycles. The Summum also features Mondrakers forward thinking, Forward Geometry concept which offers riders more control and stability at all speeds by lengthening the top tube and shortening the bikes stem length. This radical geometry development originally set Mondraker apart from the crowd when it was released several seasons ago and has been used on award winning trail bikes and World Cup winning machines since that date.
