You are a XC fanatic and you want to ride to your very best. Surrender is not in your vocabulary. You want to win.
Then we know the secret. Okay, it’s not much of a secret: ride the fastest bike possible and push your skills till you can get the best from it. But how do you know which is the fastest bike in its class?
The new 2021 Mondraker Podium frameset is just 775g (size M) - the lightest production hardtail in the world.

It’s just smart design, great materials and the know-how that comes from 20 years of cutting edge mountain bike innovation, all dialed in by input from our top-flight riders from PMX Team who have put the Podium where it belongs – on the World Cup and World Champs podiums.

You want to be your best?
Get the lightest bike, get the best spec you can, and give it everything. Mondraker Podium: an unfair advantage.
XC FORWARD GEOMETRY
Its XC Forward Geometry long reach – in all four sizes – and super-short stem (60mm, S/M frame size; 70mm, L; 80mm, XL), means the handling is quick and precise. Updated for 2021 with a slacker head angle, steeper seat tube and shorter rear triangle, matched up with the smooth 100mm travel of some of the very best forks available today – that’s the new RockShox SID SL Ultimate RLR on the Podium RR and RR SL – the Podium frameset brings a natural, neutral, balanced feel, matchless climbing prowess and confidence-inspiring stability at any speed.
STEALTH AIR CARBON
With its new Minimal Concept Design and Stealth Air Carbon layup, using the highest quality, high modulus carbon fibers, the 2021 Podium 29er hardtail frameset is lighter, stiffer, cleaner, more compliant and more purposeful than ever. The slim-profile frame is perfectly balanced with elegant lines, even more efficient use of carbon fibre material, and a new geometry that delivers assured handling and race-winning power transfer.
