Danny Hart’s Mondraker – the fastest DH bike out there
With an astonishing return to form, Danny Hart has not only just bagged the last 3 rounds of the UCI Mountain Bike DH World Cup – but he’s taken the coveted World Championship title for the second time in an incredible display of bike handling.
(check out Danny’s phenomenal 2011 victory right here)
We check out the Redcar Rocket’s Mondraker Summum Carbon Pro Team, in full custom World Champs spec – this thing is not only the fastest mountain bike on the scene, but it’s one of the most stunning too!
Building a bike for the World Champs is an excuse to completely go to town – and Danny Hart’s Mondraker has a seriously cool selection of gear on it. Check out the Renthal Carbon Fatbar handlebars, custom painted by Fat Creations specifically for the Worlds. Beyond cool!
Danny Hart has been using Crank Brothers Mallet DH pedals for a while – but not like these special custom graphic models. We’d love to get our hands on some custom Crank Brothers Mallets!
The Union Jack theme on Danny Hart’s bike is immaculately finished – and possibly the best example of custom painting we’ve seen in a long time.
With the bike set up to perfection and a cool head, Danny approached Val Di Sole with the same methodical approach as he has used all year. With trust in the bike and his ability, Danny has mastered the mental challenge of racing at the top.
Firmly in the club now, with three incredible wins and now a second World Championship title, Danny Hart has firmly arrived on the scene as a force to reckon with.
Despite the fact Danny has been racing for years, it somehow feels like he is still gearing up. We can not wait to see how he tackles next year – the Redcar Rocket means business!
On a personal note, I don’t think I’ve wanted any rider to win as much as Danny Hart at the World Championships in Italy since Peaty back in 2009. I’m still grinning looking at the shots of him now!
