How do you combine the best of mountain bike technology with a price that most riders can reasonably afford? It’s a difficult proposition, but Mondraker has done an amazing job in the Factor RR. It checks all the boxes for the features you need, including amazing frame and suspension technology, a dropper post, and a 1x drivetrain. For performance-to-cost ratio, few others can compare.

Rider Feedback

This bike was surprising. I expected the 120mm of travel number to produce a bike that was more of a traditional XC/Trail feel, but the frame geometry on this bike produces an incredible amount of stability - especially at higher speeds. It pedals incredibly well, even with any of the shock damping turned off, but the suspension definitely did a good job of taking up the bigger impacts. The bike was not incredibly playful - but it was extremely confidence inspiring.
