Saracen Myst Team 27.5" 2017 Downhill Mountain Bike

Description Specification
It’s been a long wait but boy is it worth it. Saracen is pleased to announce its brand new 2017 Myst Team bike and frameset.

For the past 18 months the team at Saracen has been working on its World Cup and World Championship winning chassis with its dedicated Madison Saracen Factory Race team.

The development process saw five different alloy mules and countless hours in the saddle to prove the theory and 3D CAD development. The frames first broke cover at the 2015 DH World Champs and it’s been a long process getting the chassis exactly how the designers and the team wanted it.

Saracen has been meticulous in its approach to this stunning new bike and has pushed the boundaries to build this cutting edge race chassis. Now, it is ready to hit the mountains.

Full Toray UD High Modulus carbon frame

Built from a mixture of Toray 24T/30T UD carbon with 3K reinforcement in strategic areas on the downtube, Saracen has saved 560g on the existing alloy front triangle. Saracen also incorporated the ability to fine-tune the front-centre + 8mm forward and -5mm backwards with its custom headtube and headsets. Following another stellar race season, Saracen also improved the brake hose routing on the UD carbon rear triangle which is now internally routed in the seatstays.

UD Carbon Links

The links are a work of art and the natural UD carbon beauty is not just skin deep: It saves 110gms over the original CNC machined alloy linkages.

Shock Cradle

Saracen relocated the shock cradle to the downtube to lower the centre-of-gravity and improve the stand-over. This was perhaps the hardest task as the frame needed to accommodate the next generation of air-shocks coming through with large volume air cans.

Integrated Fork Bump-Stops

These helped clean up the front end of the bike and also house the cable ports for the rear brake hose and rear derailleur cable.
