Carrera Sulcata

Carrera Sulcata

The Carrera Sulcata range of mountain bikes sit at the top of the Halfords mountain bike offerings, alongside the high-end Voodoos and Boardmans.

Updated from its previous 29er incarnation, the aluminium framed hardtail now features 27.5 wheels, and an up to date laid back relaxed geometry coupled with 120mm travel forks and a short stem to provide responsiveness in the steering department.

There are three major price points for the Sulcata range, each providing extremely good value for money. The only major difference between the models are the groupset and forks. 

Benefits:

If you're an experienced off roader who's looking for a keenly priced hardtail that can be hammered in the woods as well as long all day epic off road rides then this is for you. If the budget will stretch to it go for the Sulcata 3.2 model - you'll love the forks and upgraded tyres. If you can't afford it don't fret, you can get the same frame on the cheaper models and upgrade the parts at a later date when your needs dictate. The Sulcata frame is a great basis for a quality mtb.
