With the 2022 downhill season fast approaching we can reveal the new Saracen Myst that the Madison Saracen Factory Race Team will be racing this season!
Over winter we’ve been working hard with the team to make further improvements to a bike that has seen the top-step of World Cup and World Championship competition.
The latest iteration will now be tested through the season with feedback taken from riders and mechanics to create the fastest possible bike for race day.
There are some significant differences between the prototype Myst and the production version – the biggest being the material.
An aluminium front triangle is used as part of our prototyping process and is matched to the familiar carbon rear end.
The polished-chrome look, first seen at the 2021 World Championships underneath Matt Walker, has now been replicated across the squad.
Matt, Jordan Williams and Veronika Widmann will all be using the mixed wheel-size setup.
The bike is built up with Shimano’s Saint groupset, PRO Tharsis 3Five components, Fox suspension, DT Swiss wheels, Maxxis tyres and ODI grips.
