How mean are these lines?! The 2022 Mondraker RAZE Carbon RR design balances weight and strength while taking advantage of carbon’s unique properties to give it compliance where it needs it and stiffness where required. Oh, and it looks like it’s tearing down trail while just standing still…
The Raze features 130mm of rear travel with Mondraker’s Zero Suspension design. Zero Suspension is designed to separate braking & pedaling forces from the suspension stroke. This produces a bike with a very compliant feel and no pedal feedback even deep in the stroke.
The FOX DPS rear shock comes stock, however a lot of riders are gravitating to the more robust Float X upgrade from BikeCo.com as well.
Adding to the compliance of the design both upper and lower mounts of the shock “float” on suspension linkage rather than being fixed to the forward triangle.
The CarbonMonoBlock linkage is another area Mondraker has been able to balance weight and stiffness to optimize the bike’s performance.
With the trunnion mounted shock’s wider upper mounting points the CarbonMonoBlock has additional leverage to resist twisting forces as well as providing a more compact suspension packaging on the Raze Carbon.
The 2022 Mondraker lineup has a unique design feature across most models: the Top Tube / Down Tube / Head Tube “X”.
The deep oval shape of the Raze frame is designed to shave weight while giving the bike a bit more compliance through the frame design.
One of the aspects that adds to the ultra clean lines on the Raze is the way the cable routing enters through the headset riser.
