With numerous World cup and Championship victories under its belt, the Mondraker Summum Carbon Pro Team 2018 is a very welcome addition to Biketart's stable to top drawer downhill race bikes. Built around carbon frame, using Mondraker's famed 'Forward geometry', a DH adaptation of their Zero suspension system and full internal cable routing, the Summum represents the absolute pinnacle of contemporary downhill race design. Up front a Fox 40 Factory Kashima fork will take an absolute hammering and still give up 203mm of silky travel right down to the bumpers, while the Fox DHX2 Factory shock out back is not only custom tuned to make the most of Mondraker's suspension design, but also features an ultralight SLS spring that helps makes the Summum Carbon Pro Team one of the lightest machines in its class. The Summum is one of very few bikes to be fitted, not only with a Shimano Saint ten speed drivetrain (includin ultra tough Saint cranks - nice), but it also comes with a Shimano Ultegra cassette for a super close ratio and the fastest, smoothest shifts imaginable, no matter how gnarly the rock gardens get. When you finally have to brake, massive 203mm rotors matched to the class leading power of Shimano Saint brakes will mean that you are the one in control, not gravity. Helping with this control, the Summum Carbon Pro Team is fitted with Maxxis Minion DHR II tryes - 2017's most successful DH tyre by some margin, which in turn are shod to DT Swiss FR 1950 27.5" rims for total trail confidence. At the heart of the wheels are DT Classic 240 hubs and DT Competition spokes are a classic holding things all together. Up top, an SDG I-beam saddle/ stem combo is crash proof and looks great, while Renthal Fatbars are the professionals' bar of choice. Finished off with super cool OnOff components, an E.13 carbon chain guide and tackier than a newsagent's top shelf Renthal grips, the Mondraker Summum Carbon Pro Team 2018 is ready to take on the steepest, toughest, fastest trails on the planet - are you?
