Best known for their world beating mountain bikes, Saracen has branched out into the world of e-bikes with the Juiced, the British brand’s first ever motor assisted ride, aimed squarely at urban riders and commuters.
The Juiced takes elements from Saracen’s award winning bikes and combines them with the Shimano STEPS e-bike system to make urban riding more accessible than ever before. This is a bike built for the unpredictability of city riding, making it a perfect commuting option for those that want a stress-free journey to work without working up too much of a sweat.
Built around a hydro-formed 6061 aluminium frame, the Juiced uses Shimano’s STEPS E6010 motor mounted on the down tube in conjunction with the smart E6001 drive unit to make for the most intuitive e-bike experience on the market.
Completing the package is a Suntour Axon XC fork and Shimano M506 hydraulic disc brakes making for a ride that will remain comfortable wherever you take it, even when the roads make life more treacherous.
Jack Geoghegan, Saracen brand manager at Sportline, said: “The e-bike market in the UK is really set to take off this year, and we’re very excited to have a bike like the Juiced being added to the Saracen range.
“This bike will introduce the Saracen brand to a whole new range of riders, and open up the world of cycling to new riders that can now use their bikes as a legitimate mode of transport over longer distances.”
Utilising Shimano STEPS means that the Saracen Juiced will benefit from having the support network of qualified technicians throughout the UK and an exclusive express warranty service which allows retailers and consumers to buy with absolute confidence in the products.
Available in 15, 17 or 19 inch frame sizes, the Juiced comes with a RRP of £2,399.99
