    MBUK, Wrecked & Rated: Entry Level Hardtails. "Carrera's fork is head and shoulders better than anything else at this price. If there's more fun to be had with £500, we don't know what it might be." Winner!

    The Carrera Kraken Mountain Bike 2015 is a powerful machine that was built with the adventurous in mind. On this, you'll feel like you can conquer anything. Hills are nothing when you have 27 speed gears. Bumpy trails are transformed into smooth paths thanks to the the Suntour XCR hydraulic forks, which come packed with 120mm of travel and lockout. When things are getting too fast, the Clarks EXO hydraulic disc brakes can be relied on in all conditions, and it's topped off with 27.5" wheels with Continental X-King tyres. The Kraken may traditionally be a mythical beast, but with this MTB, it comes to life.

    • Frame: Lightweight aluminium
    • Forks: 120mm Suntour Front suspension & lockout feature helps on uphill climbs
    • Gears: Shimano Altus 27 speed gears have a wider range and more precise shifting
    • Brakes: Clarks hydraulic disc brakes for self-adjusting stopping power
    • Wheels: Larger 27.5" wheels with Kenda MTB tyres for better grip

    Rated 5 out of 5 by great bike after weeks of research and also a trip to my local store and had a few questions to the staff which I may say where mtb trail riders (bonus) I decided to buy the kraken, best bike I have ever bought. now my only problem yes I am going to say it its the breaks, on the road there great but down hill and trail riding they are weak. the staff at the Romford branch where fantastic 16 July 2016
    Rated 5 out of 5 by 'Kraking' bike After not Riding for about two years, I decided it was time to get back on 2 wheels, I wanted something that could get me to work, and also have some fun on my days off don the local bike trails. The kraken was easy to get used to, the tyres provide ample grip on road and off road, the gears are smooth and the range of gears gives you confidence on any terrain, suspension on the bike is great, plenty of travel allowing smooth rides on trails and also those horrible pot holes that come out of nowhere. Overall the bike has great performance. Is light, rigid and a heaps offun 15 July 2016
    Rated 2 out of 5 by Good at start bad at finish Bought the bike back in 2012 nothing wrong with it at all but as time went on after about 2 years had nothing but trouble most of spent around £200 in repairs easy only last week the bike gave up the hears packed up and broke the gear guard the gears snapped and for some unknown reason went through the spokes so I took it into halfords they said leave it with us for about 2 hours so I did went back 2 hours later only to find that I need a new wheel new gears new chain and new brakes costing me another £150 so I told the, staff to keep the bike I'll buy a new one so I did they transferred me the price of my careers to a voodoo so it only cost without the price of the old bike £150 so for £350 it was well worth getting the voodoo Bantu no issues great bike very smooth and very light as I had a lot of issues with it I also got free care plan for a year Thankyou halfords 08 July 2016
    Rated 5 out of 5 by The Kraken is a 'Kracker!' For me the Carerra Kraken seems the logical progression from its cousin the Carerra Vulcan - the latter continuing its excellent service to me over the last two years! This time I decided for the Kraken to be delivered direct to my home address arriving the following day at no charge with text notification beforehand. It arrived very well packed and took me about an hour or so for basic assembly . The Kraken is also lighter at 13.5 kgs with sturdy triangular top and down tubes. My biking is about 60% medium trail off road and 40% on road. The Continental X King 27.5 x 2.2 tyres are light but sturdy offering confidence and good speed in lanes use and decent grip on trails. The Clarks hydraulic brakes do their job well enough offering effective, positive braking when needed. The rear brake disc was rubbing slightly but realignment was easy using a strip off thin card as spacer. The fork lockout offers a ‘click’ for each gradient applied with a 120mm travel. Unlike my Vulcan it appears the Kraken’s stem can be raised, if required, as the front brake pipe is slightly longer allowing this useful function. The sports saddle is the same as the Vulcan’s but my butt appears to be getting use to this now. Direct from the warehouse I needed to reset the front gear mechanism and now find the gear change smooth and crisp – the best I’ve used to date. Off road on National Trust trails, for me, the bike comes into its own as the impressive front 120mm fork makes for a really smooth passage over bumpy ground. With a Halford 10% discount to boot the Kraken , imo, makes for a decent bike spec MTB and so far I’m well impressed and content! 05 July 2016
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing step up! I really like a bike that I can throw around, and you can really throw this bike around! I used to buy quite bad bikes at the £100-250 price range, but they're heavy, breaks are bad and most annoying of all, bottoming out on them all the time. This bike is completely different. I've heard that the breaks are not to good on this bike, but they're great. The only downside is the front one scrapes a bit while riding, but I'm sure this bed in. The suspension is great, I've been jumping and I've only come up 2/3'rds of the way up the fork. Gears are nice and easy, change instantly and first gear is so easy so you can climb anything as long as you don't tip back. The tires are great to, so you're always getting the grip you need. The weight of this bike is really great too, I can cycle this around with ease and bunny hop it quite high. If you want to ride this on the street, trails or downhill, this bike has got you covered. 9.5/10 25 June 2016
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Kraken bike for the money Love this bike so smooth even my father who rides road bikes and hybrids likes it and he isn't easily impressed 20 July 2016
    Rated 5 out of 5 by ride the dream:) already have the kraken mountain bike so upgraded to this beast:) well what can i say other than its like riding a dream, lightweight frame, attractive design and colours top parts and very very comfortable! i love it but i love my older model but this one really surpasses everything the older model has:) would highly recommend, great price and a excellent bike:) 14 July 2016
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Carrer kraken 2015 What a bike for £399. 27 gears are really smooth to use brakes are sharp although I had to reset a few days after due to a slight rubbing. Very light and we'll built. I made 1 mistake and took my bike boxed to set up myself. Slight problem with front brake hydraulic leak but was fixed with new brake unit. Let the halfords team building and set up your bike and then no problems. Halfords team at Widnes helped with any problems.... buy this bike you won't regret it. 09 July 2016
