Renowned British bicycle manufacturer Saracen can today reveal its 2018 range, which has plenty of fan favourites included in the line-up as well as some reinvented models designed to push the boundaries of the sport.
The Myst Team and Myst Pro return for 2018 with a radical new look and updated spec.
The Myst Team is a pro-level factory build that is as fast as any race machine on the market today with many world cup victories to its name. A race bike pure and simple with no expense spared and features the best kit money can buy. Available in strictly limited numbers for the fastest riders on the planet.
The Myst Pro is built as a killer privateer race bike which offers a recipe that just works. A Fox Van RC rear shock together with a Boxxer RC fork are easy to set-up and get balanced. A 1×10 Shimano Zee drivetrain and powerful Zee brakes are solid performers that never miss a beat. It’s finished with Kore Torsion bars, seatpost and rims, rolling on Maxxis High Roller II’s with a Super Tacky compound.
Myst Team – RRP: £5,699.99
Myst Pro – RRP: £3,699.99
The all-new Ariel LT is definitely the model that will be turning the most heads. Taking inspiration from the Myst without losing its climbing abilities, it will take pretty much everything you can throw at it.
Using a 24T/40T/3K Toray UD Carbon blend on the front triangle and a Toray UD Carbon swingarm keeps weight low whilst not compromising on durability. As seen on the Myst, the custom headtube allows you to adjust the front centre +/-5mm in order to perfect your ride position.
Internal cable routing and a specific Di2 battery holder in the downtube keep the bike looking as fresh as possible whilst still being practical. Full Shimano 1 x 11 speed groupset with M8000 XT brakes taking care of stopping duties. DT Swiss M1900 wheelset wrapped in Maxxis Minion DHF II tyres and finished off with carbon Enve bars really help this big hitter stand out from the crowd.
The Ariel Elite uses the same geometry as the Ariel LT, just with an alloy frame and a slightly more affordable spec, to offer an Enduro-ready race bike from the off.
Ariel LT – RRP: £4,999.99
Ariel Elite – RRP: £3,299.99
