Saracen is pleased to announce the launch of two brand new all-conquering, British speed machines in the form of two 29inch hardtails.
New to the range for 2017, the Zenith and Zenith Trail take a heap of inspiration from the ever-popular Mantra range of bikes, with slight adaptions for the bigger wheels resulting in a faster end product, built for durability and control.
Saracen Zenith Trail – RRP: £1,399.99
Saracen Zenith – RRP: £949.99
A British brand in every way, Saracen has once again delivered a couple of new bikes that are designed with the weather and trails of this fair land in mind. With hallmarks of the great Saracen bikes of the past, these two are just at home racing cross-country as they are flowing down the runs at Bike Park Wales.
At the top-of-the-range, sits the Zenith Trail with an RRP of £1,399.99. With a Rockshox Recon Gold DL Fork, Raceface Ride Single 32T Chainset, Shimano SLX RD-M7000 and Araya Double wall rims, it is a serious beast to contend with on British trails. It provides a real racing alternative to those that previously would have been looking at the Mantra Elite and Mantra Trail carbon.
Saracen has also designed a real trail ripper with the Zenith which has an RRP of £949.99. Spec-wise it comes equipped with a Suntour Raidon XC LO-R Fork, Shimano Deore FC-M627 36/22T Chainset and FDM-618/RDM-615 Derailleurs, Shimano RM-66 Hubs, Schwalbe Nobby Nic/Racing Ralph Tyres and Araya Double wall rims.
Simon Wild, product manager at Saracen, said: “We have worked really hard to get these two new bikes ready for the spring and are immensely proud of what we have created. The Zenith 29ners blur the boundaries between XC race and trail bikes. Fast handling trail whippets which are comfortable for long, mile munching days in the saddle.”
