Manon Carpenter’s 2016 Saracen Myst Carbon team bike

Madison Saracen factory team bike unveiled

The Madison Saracen factory race team has just dropped these images of Manon Carpenter’s 2016 race bike.


Sporting a fresh livery, the frame and build are essentially the same as the bike the team presented back in late August at the Val di Sole round of the Downhill World Cup. 

Carpenter’s medium-sized Myst, which made a switch to a carbon front triangle and suspension hardware for 2016, comes in slightly below the 36lb / 16.3kg mark – its full specification can be viewed below.
