With 29" wheels, 100mm travel at the back and 120mm at the front, the Saracen Traverse is a seriously fast trail weapon. The Series 3 custom butted alloy front triangle give the bike a solid platform, and it has been matched to a Toray UD carbon swingarm at the back. That swingarm also uses Flex Stay technology, which reduces weight by eliminating a rotational pivot and securing hardware. You'll also notice that we have opted for a 142mm rear hub, offset to a boost chainline which means they've been able to conceal the rear caliper inside the stays, keeping the bike nice and narrow at the back and offering plenty of heel clearance. Limited edition Madison Saracen Team graphic really makes this bike stand out from the crowd!

Saracen was founded in 1983 and was one of the first companies to recognise the potential of mountain biking when it was still in its early days. They built one of the UK’s first mountain bikes, and in 1984 two of their first models were ridden to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro. Since then, they’ve remained a small team and have continued to innovate. While the brand was acquired by Madison in 2009, Saracen’s small team are still working together to built great bikes, and have travelled thousands of miles to develop, innovate and evolve.
