Saracen Hack 01 2018 Bike
The new 2018 Hack is difficult to categorise. It sits somewhere between endurance road, cyclocross and adventure. You can apply it to everyday commuting, slap some panniers on and disappear for the weekend, climb the scoreboard with some PB's on Strava, or just meet up with mates in the woods to rip up some singletrack.
In terms of materials and components, it's kept light, stiff and nimble with a butted hydroformed 6061 Alloy frame accompanied by a full unidirectional Carbon fork. The 18-speed Shimano Sora drivetrain gives plenty of gear range for the tarmac and trails. The cable actuated Promax mechanical disc brakes are strong and reliable and also easy to maintain when out in the wild, and the Alloy wheels are packing high volume 35c Schwalbe G1 Performance 'cross tyres for resolute handling on all surfaces.
The Hack 01 is the base model in the 2018 range, closely followed by the Hack 02 mens and womens models, and then the highest spec. Hack in Black.
