New 2020 Mondraker Super Foxy Carbon 29 – It’s Not For Chicken Lines

by 0

Mondraker has just announced the new ‘Super Foxy’, a bigger travel version of the Foxy Carbon 29.

For serious riding. And all the pads.
Mondraker Super Foxy
SuperFoxy RP. For those who like cleaning.

With 29in wheels, 170mm forks and either a coil or large volume air shock giving 160mm of rear travel, you get 10mm more travel front and rear over the Foxy Carbon. This adds up to a bike which the marketing says is for ‘those riders looking for the most aggressive and hardcore riding, always pushing the boundaries and looking for the gnarliest trails and bigger jumps.’

Hmm…(scans office for protective foam and plastic, full face helmet, Googles ‘gnarliest trails with free healthcare’)…

Jumping over the gnar. Might be Chipps?
SuperFoxy RR. For those who like colours.

The marketing continues:

Become a Super Rider

These two Super Foxy Carbon models also spec powerful SRAM Code brakes with 200 mm rotors front and rear, new 12-speed Shimano Deore XT on the Super Foxy R, XTR on the SuperFoxy RR with Race Face cranksets and custom DT-Swiss wheelsets paired with Maxxis Minion DHF 2.5 Wide Trail front and DHR 2.4 Wide Trail rear tires. From now on you will have no excuses to ride down that sketchy trail, to jump that gap or simply getting dropped back following your fast riding buddies. Super Foxy will improve your riding skills and will make you a faster Super Enduro rider, guaranteed.

Guaranteed Super Enduro rider status? We’re in. Take us to the sketchy trails.

Hannah came to Singletrack having decided there must be more to life than meetings. Having worked in policy and project management roles at the Scottish Parliament and in local government, Hannah had organisational skills that SIngletrack needed. She also likes bikes, and likes to write.

Hannah likes all bikes, but especially unusual ones. If it’s a bit odd, or a bit niche, or made of metal, she’s probably going to get excited. If it gets her down some steep stuff, all the better. She’ll give most things a go once, she tries not to say no to anything on a bike, unless she really thinks it’s going to hurt. She’s pretty good with steri-strips.

More than bikes, Hannah likes what bikes do. She thinks that they link people and places; that cycling creates a connection between us and our environment; bikes create communities; deliver freedom; bring joy; and improve fitness. They're environmentally friendly and create friendly environments.

Hannah tries to write about all these things in the hope that others might discover the joy of bikes too.
