Mondraker’s New Crafty Carbon XR LTD

[Press Release] – The new Mondraker CRAFTY CARBON XR LTD is a limited edition model, not only because of its limited production or its very special paint job, but also because it’s one of the few models on the market today that comes with Bosch’s new and exclusive Performance Line CX Race motor. A Premium combo of power and exclusivity that make the new CRAFTY CARBON XR LTD stand out from the crowd. With very few available worldwide you’re going to have to fight to get your hands on one.


Why is the CRAFTY CARBON still the benchmark among high-performance eMTBs? Its Zero system with exclusive ebike specific kinematics, its Forward Geometry offering the best possible geometric balance and its use of the cutting edge construction and manufacturing techniques which go into the super-light Stealth Carbon frame create a totally unique aesthetic among eMTB bicycles currently on the market.


Behind such a long name is one key word: Race. The new Bosch motor is as exclusive as it is powerful. More aggressive, more dynamic and with handlebar gripping acceleration, the Race mode has 400% assist compared to 340% for the Turbo mode on the conventional Performance CX model. Torque remains the same at a hefty 85Nm. The motor, built with magnesium casings, weighs 2,750 grams, exactly 150 grams lighter than the standard Performance Line CX.

One of the key features of the new Bosch Performance Line CX Race motor is the “Race” mode itself, which is one mode above the traditional “Turbo” mode, both of which are configurable through the eBike Flow application, as are overall assistance level, dynamic or initial acceleration, maximum speed and maximum torque settings.

It’s also important to mention that the Race mode has a very unique Extended Boost option, postponing the assistance cutoff for a longer period of time once you’ve stopped pedaling, thus helping you to overcome those uphill trails, technical sections and single-tracks which until now had you beat.

As with the other Smart System models in the 2023 CRAFTY range, the CRAFTY CARBON XR LTD comes with the new System Controller (a device integrated into the toptube which lets you turn the motor on and off or even change the assistance mode) and the wireless Mini Remote, located on the left hand side of the handlebar, that can be used to select the assistance mode in the most intuitive way possible. The Kiox 300 external display can also be used to control all of your ride’s data, offering you thewidest range of information possible regarding your spectacular CRAFTY CARBON XR LTD.


The exclusivity of the CRAFTY CARBON XR LTD is built on the CRAFTY CARBON XR with which it shares most of its specs, with a stand-out Öhlins fork and shock doing the duty of providing the 150mm rear wheel travel, complemented by 170mm up front. Of course, the finish of the frame with the Transparent Amber color, is unique in the CRAFTY CARBON 2023 range and reveals the layers of carbon that form a part of the structure of the frame tubes.

Of course, we chose the XR version, the most ‘racing’ version of our 2023 CRAFTY CARBON enduro eMTB range, because the most powerful motor in the Bosch range deserves our most exclusive model, the one that truly reflects the spirit of maximum performance and versatility. The most refined frame, with the most powerful motor on the market. Complete exclusivity for riders looking for an extremely capable and absolutely unique enduro bike.
