Saracen Urban Cross 1 2018 Womens Bike
The Saracen Urban Cross hybrids are here to wage war on the pothole-riddled junctions of city centres and the crooked flags and sodden footpaths of the suburbs. Retaining a high level of efficiency with a wide range drivetrain and low-volume, high-grip tyres, alongside comfort-aiding features like suspension seatpost and 80mm travel suspension fork to tackle rough obstacles and ill-maintained roads.
You can rely on the hydraulic disc brakes for bad weather commutes and they can really get sharp in the event of an emergency. Furthermore the custom butted hydroformed 6061 Alloy frame and other primarily Alloy components keep the weight low for nimbleness.
It's ideal for commuting and general daily exercise, and you can get away to the countryside for a couple of days if you fit a rear pannier rack and pack your bike and backpack efficiently.
The Urban Cross 1 is the base model in the 2018 range, and is also available with traditional frame as a unisex model. They are followed closely by the higher spec. Cross 2 and Cross 3.
