THE NEW MONDRAKER

CHRONO DC RANGE

WHAT EVERY MOUNTAIN BIKE SHOULD BE

WE DON'T MAKE BORING MOUNTAIN BIKES HERE AT MONDRAKER

It would go against our DNA. That’s why with more than 20 years of experience designing and manufacturing mountain bikes, all of our models are synonymous with ‘fun’. And the new CHRONO DC range is no exception.

WHAT THE NAME ‘DC’ BRINGS TO THE TABLE

The name DOWNCOUNTRY with its initials 'DC', is not something new here at Mondraker. We’ve won several World Cup events with the F-PODIUM CARBON DC. The top-of-the-line, most capable and highest performing carbon cross country full suspension model in our line-up.

TWO VARIANTS

The arrival of the CHRONO DC in its two variants, the CHRONO DC and the CHRONO DC R, adds a little extra aggression to our range of CHRONO hardtails; the acronym ‘DC’ defining a very specific geometry and components mix, aiming for the perfect blend of fun combined with maximum versatility brought together in an aluminium hardtail.

STEALTH ALUMINUM AND ‘DC’ SPECIFIC GEOMETRY
STEALTH ALUMINUM AND ‘DC’ SPECIFIC GEOMETRY

The CHRONO DC is much more than a conventional hardtail. It’s a totally new frame from the ground up in terms of design and geometry. It’s made from our STEALTH aluminium and has a very focused, unique geometry within the entire CHRONO range. The head angle is 68.5 degrees (1.5 degrees slacker than the CHRONO and CHRONO CARBON range) and the fork travel has been increased to 120mm.

These are the two core aspects when it comes to defining a DOWNCOUNTRY bike’s identity, thus increasing the fun and versatility, both on technical trails and through increased stability when going downhill.

TELESCOPIC SEATPOST AND 2.4” TIRES AS STANDARD

The component mix is another key factor. Both models come with a factory fitted dropper post and 2.4” tires. To make the most of an aluminium hardtail, the dropper post combined with the DC specific geometry gives added versatility to the bike and extra confidence when tackling technical trails, and the Maxxis Ardent 29x2.4” tires are a great compromise between rolling resistance, grip and comfort and offer extra confidence on difficult terrain.


To achieve a slightly more comfortable and less demanding riding position on longer rides and to provide you with greater confidence on technical trails, the stem length has been reduced compared to the rest of the CHRONO and CHRONO CARBON range (S/M: 50mm, L: 60mm and XL: 70mm). The brake rotors also get the DC treatment by going up to 180mm at the front on both models.

GUARANTEED FUN

The new CHRONO DC range is perfect for riders looking for a next generation aluminium hardtail which is more capable on all trails, while being more fun and more confidence inspiring than ever before.
