Saracen Hack in Black 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.
The Hack in Black has the best specifications in the 2018 range and it's fitted with plenty of enticing kit. Built around a custom butted hydroformed 6061 Alloy frame along with a full unidirectional Carbon fork for excellent tracking control and vibration management. 12mm thru-axles also add security and increase cornering compliance.
It doesn't care if it's shredded on the tarmac, hardpack, gravel or soil - the chunky 32c WTB CX tyres and flatmount hydraulic disc brakes allow you to negotiate all sorts of scenarios in variable weather, while the 2x11 Shimano 105 drivetrain provides ample range to get up and over trail obstacles and smash steep inclines.
