More About The All-New Carrera Kraken Mountain Bike

Lightweight Suspension
The Suntour XCR magnesium fork is a lighter option that doesn’t compromise on performance or control. Travel increases to 120mm giving you even more confidence into corners and the lockout feature means you can cut out all suspension for those steep, smooth climbs and transfer power more efficiently

Lightweight responsive frame

Triple butted frames have unwanted material removed from the middle of tubes to reduce weight but still have strong and durable joints that do not compromise on strength and safety. As with all the other 2020 Carrera bikes we’ve overhauled and updated the tube profiles so that they deliver a stiffer and more capable frame that still has low overall weight - at approximately 15kg on the Kraken. Even better news is the improved geometry whereby we’ve tweaked the angles of the frame giving a longer wheelbase which offers stability, coupled with shorter stems and wider handlebars which will give riders more control especially when cornering.

Extra comfort
Customers told us that features such as saddle comfort were a crucial element of their riding experience. Recognising this we’ve therefore equipped the Carrera bikes with memory foam saddles helping you spend even more time comfortably on the roads and trails. Often overlooked but an important contact point, we’ve developed new handlebar grips whose shape enables a steady hold with a knurled soft rubber surface for additional comfort.
Additional peace of mind. And grip.

To give you even more riding time and not have you standing idle we’re also giving you more peace of mind by fitting ‘Carrera Puncture Protection’ tyres as standard which include an additional layer of puncture resistant material running around the tyre which will help reduce the incidence of punctures.

Efficient modern gears

To enhance the riding experience, we have also upgraded the drivetrain on the new Hellcat, moving from a triple chainset to a 2x (2 by). One less cog at the front means less weight and less maintenance but also makes changing gears more intuitive as fewer choices help you get the one you want quicker… and don’t worry about the range of gears. The Kraken now comes with a bigger 9-speed cassette at the back wheel, so you’ve still got those important choices at the top and bottom end of the range. Sometimes, less is definitely!
