For the Mantra carbon chassis we went back to basics with the design and integrated some really neat features.
All cables are internally routed to keep it looking clean. Routing is provided for stealth dropper posts. ISCG 05 and Tapered headtube as standard. The dropouts are the same ones found on our Ariel and Kili Flyer frames to keep parts interchangeable.
We wanted it to look like a mountain bike so mounted the rear disc brake on the seatstay and have run the rear hose cable internally from the headtube to the disc mount.
Material of choice is a mixture of 30/40t Mitsubishi UD carbon fibre offering a blend of stiffness up front and compliant rear stays.
