The Saracen Tufftrax Disc Hardtail is a great all-round mountain bike designed to go the extra mile. Built around a 27.5 inch wheelsize, the lightweight 6061 aluminium frame has a very balanced geometry, as well as a low stand over height. This combined with the Suntour XCT HLO fork, providing 100mm of bump-eating travel, make this great for off-roading. Saracen have equipped the bike with a 24 speed Shimano/Suntour drivetrain with EZ-Fire shifters for reliable and smooth shifting performance. Powerful cable disc brakes will keep your speed under control as the fast rolling Saracen Doublewall rims laced with WTB Comp SE tyres make light work of the trails with their immense grip and fast rollability. The Tufftrax Disc is finished with a quality Saracen finishing kit including handlebars, stem, grips, saddle and seatpost which provide the rider with a comfortable and durable riding platform.

The Tufftrax Range

This is Saracen’s entry-level hardtail mountain bike range - but don’t be fooled, they’re much more versatile than the tag suggests. Saracen’s belief is that even entry-level bikes can ride great with carefully considered specs, these include wide bars, short stems and long toptubes. The 6061 aluminium frame has a very stable geometry and low standover height, this combined with the bump-eating Suntour fork make this a very capable off-roader. The Tufftrax feature rim and disc brake varieties and are constructed around a 27.5-inch wheel size, apart from the top of the range model which is also available in a 29-inch wheel size. Add to this the Shimano components and sleek finishing kits and you get a great do-it-all bike at an affordable price.

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!
