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 we'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.
