Mondraker is an independent mountain bike specialist manufacturer from sunny Alicante. It is another example of where passion for cycling has become a business. Despite growing sales globally and public interest they still managed to remain independent from large bike corporations.
It is also known for developing its Zero suspension system, which is included in all of their full-suspension models. Advantages over other suspension systems include no loss of energy when pedalling, no impact on breaking – separate system with the breaks and constant chain tension.
Despite being relatively a small bike manufacturer they have something to boast about. Mondraker bike rider has become World Champion in Downhill World Cup.
