The Saracen Mantra Hardtail is an ideal entry-level mountain bike offering a great set of specifications at an affordable price. The lightweight custom butted 6061 alloy frame has a nimble and playful geometry and also includes features preferential to UK conditions such as plenty of mud clearance at the rear, Crud Catcher mounts on the downtube and a front facing seat tube to limit water invasion. To cater for future upgradeability the Mantra features a Chip-Slot dropout system with options ranging from 10mm QR to 142 x 12mm axles. Suspension comes in the form of a Suntour XCM HLO fork, providing 120mm of bump-eating travel to iron out the trails. Drive is taken care of in the way of a 27 speed Shimano M370 Altus drivetrain providing smooth, crisp and reliable shifting. The fast paced Araya wheelset makes easy work of the trails and paired with the incredible traction of the Schwalbe Tough Tom and Smart Sam tyres riding confidence is pushed to a whole new level. Keeping the fun under control are the powerful and dependable Shimano M355 hydraulic disc brakes providing impressive performance in all conditions. The Mantra has been suitably finished with a Saracen custom cockpit consisting of 740mm wide oversized bars and 60mm stem for fine tuning the handling and dynamic ride quality the Mantra provides.

The Mantra Range

The Mantra range sets the benchmark for a true UK hardtrail based on a simple formula that adds up to bikes that are fast, flick-able and brilliant fun. Mantra enters its fourth season on 27.5-inch wheels and the entire range features Saracen’s ethos of long toptube, short stem and wide bars. This season’s upgrades to the frame include a slightly longer toptube and internal dropper post routing. New to 2017 are three women’s specific models all with shorter stems, narrower bars and specifically designed contact points. The range is set at competitive key price points, providing an option for all types of riders and budgets. This is a great bike to upgrade to as your riding skills develop.

About Saracen

Founded in 1987, Saracen was one of the defining UK mountain bike brands during the 1990's, producing legendary products such as the coveted Kili Flyer (inspired by adventure cyclist Nick Crane's Mt Kilimanjaro ascent) and the Tufftrax which was the bike of choice for countless riders taking their first steps into the sport. Sadly, the brand gradually became known for bikes built to increasingly low budgets and had all but disappeared off the radar of any serious mountain biker by the mid 2000's... That is until Saracen was re-launched under stewardship of Madison in 2010/2011.
The aim was to capture the success and recognition the brand enjoyed 20 years ago, and they've achieved remarkable things in a very short period of time to firmly re-establish Saracen within the market both within the UK and globally by bringing back some old favorites (such as the entry level Tufftrax and fillet brazed Kili Flyer) and introducing a wider range of new bikes. Whether you're looking for a Hardtail, Full Suspension, City, BMX, Jump or Kids bike forget the stereotypes and what you thought you knew, Saracen are back!
