New MMR X-Tour: carbon frame and balanced mounts for an ‘adventure’ gravel bet


Primary objective: comfort

A MMR they have been clear from the beginning. They were looking for a balanced and comfortable bike, beyond a featherweight. And for this, they have resorted to a carbon frame with intermediate modulus fibers that provide more ‘elasticity’, combined with a balanced geometry, with comfort as a priority. Hence the high stack, the short reach and a steering angle of 71 degrees that plays in favor of stability and safety in the front end.

Still, and even though we’re not talking about a gravel race bike, the MMR X-Tour it was already ‘tested’ last year by the brand in tests like The Traka or Badlandsplus a development process of about 18 months, a fact that also speaks of the versatility of this mount.

Details that add up

With a wheelbase allowed of fine 45mm – although the brand recommends not to exceed the 42 mm-, universal shift pin SRAM UDH and several threads located in the saddle tube and diagonal, the MMR X-Tour opts for a simple and classic aesthetic, of round tubes, although without disdaining current solutions.

You only need to observe the special shape of the vertical tube, narrower at the bottom, to facilitate a greater absorption of vibrations and, incidentally, to widen the wheelbase in this area and avoid mud accumulations in extreme circumstances.

First sensations

In the absence of bringing you a more detailed article in a few days, we can give you the sensations we got on the route we were able to take along the tracks that dot the surroundings of bathroomsat the back of the MMR X-Tour 00.

It is a bike, at first glance, long. Even just getting on it, being a size M – which corresponds to me according to the brand – made me doubt the dimensions chosen. However, after the first few kilometres, and once it was coupled, I started to feel comfortable… which is what the X-Tour.

On the flat it is tremendously fast and stable, it allows you to tackle descents and tight corners safely, and it is very capable when going uphill, despite not being particularly reactive when it comes to getting straight on the pedals. This is where the Achilles heel resides. In any case, balance and versatility are the greatest virtues.
