Mondraker, a Spanish bicycle manufacturer, has come up with a futuristic concept bike, the Podium Carbon. One of the latest hi-tech cycling items on the market today. This is a hot item to watch out for. Its new frame is created with a proprietary fabrication process making it stiffer than its predecessor.

To reduce the height of the front, Mondraker took off the stem and integratef it with the frame. By doing this, the steering tube is shortened while the front area of the bike is strengthened. Consequently, the force transmission from the upper body to the trail is enhanced.

Featured by the Modraker Podium Carbon Futuristic Concept Bike is the incredibly revolutionary Tronesque lines that introduce an integrated stem technology that has been seen on road bikes in recent years. Now, Mondraker is the first one to apply this technology to mountain bikes.

Unique for its convenient diaphragm valve is the 2011 Camelbak Podium Big Chill 25oz Water Bottle. When the bottle top is in the open position, the diaphragm valve allows the rider to drink by squeezing the bottle without having to close it after.
