Not familiar with Mondraker's Zero Suspension System, well let's dig into the details on why this system is so popular among the MTB community.
Zero Suspension System - is a dual link design with the shock floating between the two suspension links and compressed from both ends. This makes the rear suspension extremely sensitive on small bumps and big hit capable.Advantages
- Zero power loss. High pedalling efficiency. The power applied to pedals is transformed to immediate forward motion without any extra compression or extension of the rear shock.
- Zero pedal kickback. Chain length growth throughout the suspension travel is minimum, so pedalling is as effective and efficient as possible.
- Zero brake jack. Rear brake forces do not work against suspension forces. The rear shock works supple and freely and absorb impacts without any suspension stiffening caused for the rear brake action.
- Zero bumps. The most remarkable feature of the system is its excellent suppleness on rough terrain and a completely stable ride when pedalling.
- Components subject to manufacturer changes
