Saracen Mantra 650b 2014 Hardtail Mountain Bike Information

Season : 2016

Brand : Saracen

Code : RN5120

With a complete makeover for 2014, the Saracen Mantra is a great value mountain bike that doesn't sacrifice on aesthetics. With full Shimano gearing and a lightweight 6061 aluminium frame, the Saracen Mantra offers more bang for your buck than you'd expect. The Mantra also features pannier eyelets - great for transport and commuting!

New for 2014

The new 2014 version of the Saracen Mantra has had a revamp and now features 650b wheels and a long travel 120mm fork that benefits from a lockout and preload adjuster to ensure maximum performance.

Frame and fork

The 2014 edition Saracen Mantra comprises a lightweight custom butted 6061 alloy frame - which has been designed to benefit UK riding - with a Suntour XCM LO 120mm travel front fork which features a lockout and preload adjuster.


The Saracen Mantra has full Shimano drivetrain including Shimano Altus M370 Rapid Fire shifters and 160mm hydraulic disc brakes, 27.5" wheels, lockout front fork and a premium Saracen finishing kit.

Is this bike for me?

The components on the Saracen Mantra make this a suitable bike for cyclists who are looking to start hardtail cycling as well as those who are looking to progress on the trails.

Note: We know getting a new bike is really exciting and you probably want it to arrive yesterday. We would love you to be out pedaling and getting all of the benefits that cycling brings as soon as possible too, that’s why we offer a 24 hour delivery service with this bike. 
In order to get your new ride to you as fast as possible we will be sending it to you in a box and it will need some assembly to get it ready to ride safely. We do strongly recommend that this is done by an accredited mechanic to make sure that everything is as it should be. If you want to wait a little bit longer we can build it for you (a PDI) and deliver it ready to ride.
