Mondraker’s Summum downhill bike has deep roots in racing, blasting onto the scene back in 2009 under Fabien Barel. The inaugural model introduced some very progressive geometry (at the time) and Mondraker’s ZERO Suspension Design that has gone on to define the aesthetic and performance of Mondraker bikes. After over a decade of evolution, changes have become subtle. Still, the latest Summum Carbon model features multiple frame tweaks and adjustability options that have kept it at the pointy end of frame designs. Tested during our 2022 Downhill Bike Test Sessions, the matching race stripes and sleek lines of the Summum gleamed with speed and dominance, giving us the notion that we were pulling a race-ready bike right out of the box.
