    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 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 20yrs off the saddle Bought this last week after weeks of research and speaking to friends, i was looking for a bike that would be suitable for sunday rides with family and equally capable of joining my friends up the local bike park trails. This bike ticks all the boxes I've been out a few times this week to get used to the bike and I'm having so much fun! So if you like me have a budget and want the best you can for your hard earned cash you will not regret purchasing this bike! 20 May 2016
    Rated 5 out of 5 by carrera this is really good mountain bike rides lovely work good at a good price as well 17 May 2016
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Great bike Good spec and value. Excellent fork. Would recommend to anyone! 20 June 2016
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Great bike for the money After reading the other reviews slating the brakes i was pleasantly surprised to find that they appear to work pretty well. True my last bike had rim brakes but these are 10x better. The front brake lever seems to have a lot more movement that the rear one before getting full braking. Not sure whether that could be cured by just a little setting up. The forks, though not the best spec seem to soak up the bumps nicely. 25 May 2016
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Overall great mountain bike Great mountain bike for general use or up the tracks, has good forks, and the continental tires are very good in all condition's. The brakes and gears are also very good. Awesome bike and affordable. 22 May 2016
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Great bike Really good bike and a great price for such a machine. 17 May 2016
    Rated 3 out of 5 by Kraken Gripe! After purchasing my Kraken today, I am annoyed by three things.One.. I purchased Schrader valve spare inner tubes only to find that they are Presta valves! come on Halfords on this spec bike you can do better than that, plus the sales assistant didn't even pick up on it when I paid for the bike and tubes! Secondly.. why not sell suspension seat posts for that frame, you offer most other sizes, but not for your own brand of frame! Thirdly. Any one purchasing a bottle cage and bottle, on a 18" frame a 650Ml size bottle will catch the under side of the top tube when you take it out (irritating), so purchase a smaller one! Guess what I will be doing tomorrow, a little trip back to local branch! 25 March 2016
