    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 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
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Better then anything at this price point I bought this bike at Christmas 2015 for £360 from halfords clough road hull, Great service from the boys down there unlike many others these boys know there stuff. The bike itself is excellent and is very well dialled in for trail riding. The forks react brilliantly for something at this price point, the shimano Altus running gear is crisp and changes up and down fast with precision and is easy to index continental clings are grippy and strong with great reviews. Up against family members voodoo Bantu and Aizan it's certainly leaps and bounds better out on the trails. The clarks brakes are the only thing that let the bike down, although they do work and just powerful enough to stop you on the steeper hills, they are basic and could be better, I've upgraded mine and once done I found the bike even more fun braking later into turns etc. If your looking for a good standard of bike at the £400 mark you won't find better then the kraken, be realistic and honest with yourself at what u expect for this price range then get out and enjoy riding a top top bike that really really wants to play Fast, fun, well failed in and with better brakes it's outstanding 04 February 2016

    Rated 5 out of 5 by Great bike for not a lot of money This bike is very light packed full of features and great value for money. Sturdy build eyecatching looks and very functional. For the price paid (£400 on offer) don't think I could have got more for my money. Would highly recommend. 12 February 2016
