The new Saracen Mantra Carbon Elite is the tip top of the Mantra Pile.

The frame, constructed from high spec Toray unidirectional (UD) carbon fibre, is light, strong and packed with innovative design features like the internal cable and hose routing, low top tube for improved standover height, and a design that makes it ideal for use in our often terrible Great British winter weather.

Aside from the Toray unidirectional (UD) carbon fibre frame the big news with this years elite spec Mantra is the brilliant new Shimano 11 speed XT drivetrain; 11 sprockets on the back allow for a wide range of gears while allowing the use of only a single chainring on the cranks making for not only a much lighter system but also a simpler and more reliable set up.

Suspension is taken care of by the brilliant Fox 32 Evolution fork with 120 mm travel, a tapered steerer for unbeatable strength and rigidity, and for 2016, the new FIT4 damper system. This fork also utilises the now ubiquitous 15 mm bolt through front axle for dramatically improved stiffness and strength.

Brakes on this model are the brilliant Shimano M615 units with a 180 mm rotor up front and 160 rear, providing ample stopping power and easy tool free adjustability.
