19.4 KG Mondraker Crafty Carbon launched

£10,799 19.3KG EMTB

Lightest large capacity, full powered EMTB with a big price. Check out the specs on this bad boy! Full carbon, wireless AXS, carbon wheelset and weighing in at 19.3 KG. This makes it the the worlds lightest full powered big capacity EMTB available right now.

There are lighter, lower powered smaller capacity ebikes out there (with half the battery size of this), but this is the lightest full powered big capacity ebike I can see on the market right now.

Press play to watch the first ride review

  1. Lightest FS EMTB ? … I thought the Ridley Elykx Carbon hardtail was supposedly 18kg’s. Though it doesn’t state the weight on their website now, so maybe that was a fairy tail :)

    Elykx C – E-mountainbike – Shimano STEPS E8000 | Ridley

    Edit .. or maybe 17kg’s ..

    Yeah, worlds lightest FS ebike (as far as I can tell for my click bait headline haha!).

  2. Great vid rob, the quality of film you are getting from your current set up is awesome.

    The new Mondrakers are such good looking bikes.

    Why companies keep putting charging ports in the worse locations continues to baffle me though

  3. All that bike and ONLY £10,799.00 😝
    Rob was very generous with the sticker location. Surely we can start calling the manufacturers out a little on pricing soon?
    That’s like 5 one year old Kenevos 🤣
  4. Non-removable battery according to STW, is that right?

    That’s what he says in the Video…. :) To keep the weight down they made it so the battery was fixed. (not sure if that mean you can get it out with the motor out or not – presumably you can).

  5. Amazing looking bike. Love the cable routing, but what happens when you fall off? (you tested that right, Rob?) what stops the cables being stretched if the bars spin 180degrees in a crash?
    All that’s missing from that cable routing set up is a pots mod for those in the know!!

    I think you’ll find that’s ‘Potts mod’ ;)

  7. I wonder if you can buy the Kiox mount Trek use aftermarket? seems like the best mounting solution for the Bosch

    Of course, I had a perfect OTB haha.

    No issue with the cables.

    The screen however is very vulnerable. I’d be looking to move it back behind the bars as soon as I could.

  9. Lovely looking bike and i am excited to see a possible trend towards lighter bikes. However at $21,000AUD this is out of the ballpark AND the spec level of some of the components on this thing is (very) poor for the (huge) price tag!
  10. Am I missing something, isn’t the Ezesty Full sus, 18.4kg and cheaper. Yes it has a smaller battery but its still an ebike.

    Its a very different kind of EMTB though, both in terms of design and philosophy. The Fazua motor gives far less assistance, and a lot less range if using the more powerful modes – its a very different approach to the more powerful systems

    Huh ?

    So its 250watts, 60nm, has much the same components but is different. Yes you can remove the motor if you like, but its still an ebike. In fact it delivers the same torque on paper as the Shimano E7000……

    It’s no way near the power. On paper maybe. In reality it’s weak and gets blown away by Bosch /Shimano / Yamaha /Brose

    And the battery is small. The eZesty is kind of a ‘no mans land’ ebike. Not light enough to be worthwhile for the power and range loss you get with it.

  14. I’d love to see a head to head comparison of this and the Trek Rail 9.9 X01

    As far as I can see, both are very similar…

    Around £10000
    Bosch Gen 4 with Kiox and 625Wh battery
    Fully carbon frame (no alloy stays)
    Carbon wheel set
    Eagle AXS X01

    The Mondraker seems to get a big thumbs up. The Trek is slightly cheaper, and is available now (Mondraker is March 2020). Most literature / videos are of the Rail 9.8 which gets a very good write up… but there’s not much on the 9.9.
    One of the main criticisms of the Mondraker was the mount for the Kiox… but it appears Trek have a much better solution for that. Agree though that I’d rather have no display at all and maybe just have some LEDs like a Levo.
