MMR Kenta XC bike finally hits the trails following World Cup & Olympic refinement
Back in May, MMR debuted its prototype Kenta XC 29er on the World Cup stage in Nové Mesto. The Kenta could again be spotted during the Olympic Games in Tokyo, and taking the top spot in the Italian XCO Championship. After more than three years in development, testing and racing, the Spanish bike company is ready to release the bike into the wild in three models with nine unique builds.
The Kenta features a carbon frame with a new, aggressive geometry and snappy 100 mm suspension. With a head tube angle of 69 degrees and large tire clearance, the bike looks to be a winner in technical XC conditions.
MMR says the Kenta SL is the cream of the crop in XC race bikes, it comes in two builds, the 00 and the Kenta SL 10. The 00 includes the SRAM XX1 AXS Eagle 12V drivetrain and the RockShox SID upfront. The 10 comes loaded with the Shimano XTR groupset and Fox Factory suspension components.
MMR calls the version of the bike solely dubbed “Kenta,” the most flexible bike in the lineup. It comes in a variety of six builds for any rider to find the ideal setup, or price point.
The Kenta SXC edges away from a full-on XC racer to more of a trail build. It features wider bars and a dropper post for a more secure feel on the trail.
The Kenta range starts with the Kenta models, which range from about MSRP $3,200 up to about MSRP $5400. The Kenta SXC goes for about MSRP $4,900, and the SL for about $8,250.
