Nature BIKES
Season 2021

You remember when you first got the advice – ‘go for the lightest cross country race bike’?

Well it’s still true, and for the 2021 range, we haven’t forgotten what matters – the 29er hardtail Podium Carbon RR frameset has slimmed down to an impressively svelte 775g for the best performance possible. So when you make the sacrifice and set yourself to suffer mode, the Podium RR delivers in spades! With its new Minimal Concept Design and Stealth Air Carbon layup, the 2021 Podium RR is lighter, cleaner and more purposeful than ever. It’s perfectly balanced with elegant lines, even less material, a slightly slacker head angle and a longer wheelbase, for stability at any speed, matched up with the smooth 100mm travel of the new RockShox SID SL Ultimate RLR fork and the fast-spooling Mavic CrossMax Carbon SLR wheelset. Throw in the lightweight efficient simplicity of SRAM’s X01/GX Eagle 1x12s drivetrain to go, and their Level TLM brakes on 160mm rotors to stop and switch into your ‘no surrender’ mindset and there’s nothing holding you and the Podium Carbon RR back from your best XC racing performance yet!
