Built for speed, ready to party.
Developed by the Madison Saracen Factory Race Team, this is a real deal replica of the bike ridden to World Cup victory in Leogang by Matt Walker.
We’ve updated the geometry, added 20mm in reach and provided an extra large size option to cater for taller riders. For reference, Matt is on a size large.
Factory rider fit means this bike is designed to go fast straight out of the gate, with our CNC custom link making this one of the only specifically designed, mixed-wheel size downhill race bikes on the market today.
The Series 3 custom butted and hydroformed 6013 alloy front triangle is mated to a UD carbon swingarm.
Details include +/-5mm reach adjustment, built-in bump stops and internal cable routing.
We've also chosen large bearings that are more durable and widely available, making this bike perfect for privateer racers.
Taking care of the heavy hits out back is the Marzocchi Bomber CR coil. Sensitive enough to deal with the chatter, and happy to deal with those high-speed G-outs or huck-to-flats.
Up front the RockShox BoXXer Select RC features a DebonAir damper, with rebound and low-speed compression adjustment so you can create your perfect setup.
A DH-specific 7-speed SRAM GX drivetrain takes care of shifting and is a proven bombproof performer. Shimano MT520 4-piston brakes keep things under control with 203mm rotors at both ends.
RaceFace rims are wrapped in Maxxis DHRII tyres, with 35mm finishing kit to match, making this a superb all-round package.
