Myst Pro wins out in MBUK grouptest

The Saracen Myst Pro has won MBUK's downhill bike grouptest, securing four-stars and praise for delivering superb value. 

Alex Evans - BikeRadar's Senior Tech Editor - put a trio of bikes through their paces and the Myst came out on top, collecting a bounty of compliments in the process.

"The Myst blends impeccable performance with an outrageously impressive price tag for this Pro model. Given how easy it is to ride quickly, it should cost more!

"It feels calm and composed everywhere, and the rear suspension is smooth on the small hits but capable enough to handle the bigger ones."

That performance comes from the extensive development from the Madison Saracen Factory Team, giving a ride quality that was picked up on by Evans.

"Race proven geometry gives the Myst an impressively balanced feel, both front-to-rear and hand-to-foot. Control, therefore, is firmly in your grasp. Even major technique transgressions are glossed over by the Saracen's forgiving feel. 

"Staying in control while riding at higher speeds seems to be the modus operandi of the Myst."
