Nature BIKES
Season 2023

Pure acceleration

Pure acceleration. The F-PODIUM R is the epitome of a full-suspension cross country bike. With 100mm of rear wheel travel and 110mm at the front, it pedals with the efficiency of a hardtail but when it comes to descending you have just the right amount of shock absorption. Traction is its calling card thanks to the ZERO SUSPENSION SYSTEM. If we add our FORWARD GEOMETRY technology and a frame made out of STEALTH AIR FULL CARBON to the ZERO system, you get an XC bike halfway between the F-PODIUM DC that competes in the World Cup, and the PODIUM as the flagship of top level hardtails.
