Mondraker Revises the Summum DH Bike With a New Carbon Frame

The winning Mondraker Summum DH mountain bike now comes in a carbon frame, with mixed wheels or dual 29ers.

The Mondraker Summum isn’t just a fun model name to pronounce, it’s also fast. The aluminum version of this bike has been piloted to numerous national titles and World Cup wins by the likes of Eleonora Farina, Laurie Greenland, and Brook MacDonald. Today the brand has a carbon fiber version on offer, and Mondraker says that one of the sizes weighs 2800g before the shock is installed.

This lightest Summum can be built up with 29″ or mixed wheels, and those wheels attach via a Super Boost 12x157mm axle out back and a 20x110mm axle at the front to suit the bike’s rigidity needs. The super-boosted rear end is paired with an 83mm bottom bracket for optimal chain line, and of course there are ISCG 05 tabs for all of he bash-guard goodness you can possibly want. To finish the frame notes, cable routing is cleanly internalized and there are chain stay (+/- 5 mm) and headset (+/- 1º and +/- 2º) geometry adjustments available.

The new bikes will use Mondraker’s familiar Zero suspension platform, with 200mm of travel using a Trunnion mounted shock. The brand’s beloved Forward Geometry is also at play, providing all things long-low-slack from the beginning, though they didn’t share exact geo numbers quite yet — which likely means they are the same as the winning alloy frame.

The 2022 model year Summum Carbon will be available in three builds, starting with the RR that’s dressed in Fox Factory suspension, Shimano Saint brakes and drivetrain, e*thirteen wheels, and Michelin tires. The Carbon R build is outfitted with black Fox Performance suspension, SRAM Code R brakes and a SRAM transmission, and the same tires and wheels. There’s also a frame set option that includes a Fox DHX2 Factory shock, a headset, stem, and requisite geometry kit.
