    Season : 2017

    Code : VARRN1136

    Weight : 0.02KG

    Built around a beating heart of purest carbonium, the Saracen Mantra Elite 2017 is the latest bike to take the 'ultimate trail/XC race/ go fast hardtail crown and show it some high speed singletrack. The unidirectional Mitsubishi carbon is fantastically stiff where is matters, but forgiving in key places so that is allows for comfort and power transfer all at the same time, while creating one of the lightest hardtail frames in its class. The Mantra Elite features a trail ready 68 degree head angle matched to a 120mm Fox Float Performance that soaks up trail imperfections while tracking like bloodhound down even the most rock infested tracks. Shifting the Mantra Elite along, the Shimano 1x11 gearing gets you up and over the biggest hills and offers enough top end speed to satisfy the Strava addicts among us. Cornering is predictable and rapid, thanks to grippy, reliable WTB trailboss tyres which, along with the Kore rims, can be set up tubeless to save weight and increase grip. Shimano's Deore disc brakes haul the Mantra Elite to a stop with the minimum of fuss and total control and a Saracen/ Kore finishing provides a nice balance of bling and low key styling for the fashion conscious. Whether you are hitting the trail centre, rolling up at the XC race start line or heading off over the Downs, the Saracen Mantra Elite Carbon 2017 will get you there

      If you order a bike we will contact you and arrange a collection appointment. All bikes go through a PDI (Pre Delivery Inspection) delivered by one of our accredited mechanics, this means that getting your bike ready for collection may take a little longer.

      Please bring with you your confirmation e-mail, a photo proof of ID (i.e. passport, driving licence), and proof of address.

      Hi, My name is
      My Email Address
      My Phone Number
      My question about 2017 Saracen Mantra Carbon Elite is...

      With Pre-Order, you can purchase the latest items added to our store in advance of them arriving with us.

      You Pre-Order is prioritised (at no additional charge); meaning that, as soon as the product arrives with us, we can wrap it straight back up and get it sent out to you - it often never even hits the stock room shelves!


      With Pre-Launch, the date when we expect to receive the product ourselves is still a little too hazy to be confident in accepting Pre-Orders.

      So, instead, you can submit your email address against the item you are interested in and we will email you as soon as stock arrives on the system.

      Estimated Delivery Dates

      Estimated Delivery Dates are given on Pre-Order and Pre-Launch products. They are for indication purposes only and can change at any time without notice.

      The dates we provide are based on indications given by our suppliers. Whenever we get updated information from our suppliers we will endeavour to update the Estimated Delivery Dates provided on product pages.


      Thanks for choosing his item ...
