The ever-growing list of impressive Mondraker 2023 models continues as the iconic Foxy Carbon gets its own 2023 introduction with three new models. The Foxy has been around since 2015 and Mondraker says this rider's favorite enduro mountain bike is the embodiment of what it lives and breathes as a brand, adding that the history of the Foxy Carbon is one of evolution, flexibility and performance.

The Foxy Carbon comes in three builds – the XR, RR and R – and all share the same Stealth Air Carbon frame, which Mondraker says uses its most refined and lightest carbon manufacturing process. With every carbon layer specifically and carefully applied to each area of the frame, it makes the most stylish, evolved and advanced carbon fiber frame in the brand's range. Mondraker says the standout features of Stealth Air Carbon are cutting-edge industrial design, aero-style profile, maximum stiffness, lightest weight, and superior compliance ratio.

Each build also comes with suspension from Öhlins and Fox (depending on the model) and features 150mm of rear wheel travel, with forks of up to 160mm travel (170mm on the XR model). The MIND system also comes in all three models, which again is Mondraker's own Smart Telemetry System that analyzes both front and rear suspension performance and allows any rider to set up their suspension perfectly via the MyMondraker App.

Mondraker's adjustable Forward Geometry is the brand's own geometric concept, which it says makes each Mondraker model unique in function and performance. The 2023 Foxy Carbon range has new geometry changes that aim to improve performance even further, increasing riding efficiency and control in bike handling.

The 2023 Foxy Carbon could just be the answer for anyone looking for an ultra-versatile enduro mountain bike with a high-end spec sheet and intuitive technology. We hope to bring a full test ride write-up very soon.
