It's not a Mantra, it's based around a Karma mountain frame, but with hybrid parts and a rigid fork. Unlike the more advanced and expensive Mantra, the Karma and Karma Pave had, and try not to laugh, a piece of foam as the rear suspension. What were they thinking???

Like a proflex.


Proflex used elastomer rubber in their low end bikes, Klein used some form of closed cell foam for their Karma range.
