Popular models in their hardtail lineup include the Vengeance, Valour, Sulcata, Vulcan, Karkinos and Hellcat bikes.

Historically, Carrera manufactured 29er models, but in recent years they've focused on producing bikes with the smaller 27.5" wheel diameter.

Carrera Sulcata Mountain Bikes

Carrera Sulcata Mountain Bikes

Carrera Sulcata Bikes are a range of entry level alloy hardtail Mountain Bikes, featuring 10 or 11 Speed Shimano Deore Groupsets, either Suntour or RST Forks, Disc Brakes & 27.5" wheels, typically on sale between £400-£600. These bikes are aimed at newcomers to mountain biking, who want a bike which take some off-road punishment but also not cost the earth. The Sulcata frames are distinctive, with braces added to the crossbar / seat tube interface, and to increase strength, with further reinforcements near the headtube. Hence the lifetime frame guarantee - the Carrera Sulcata Bikes are built to last. As mentioned previously, the range currently feature mid travel suspension forks from Suntour or RST, usually offering 120mm of movement. For the money, the specifications are very impressive; well designed frame, branded forks, Deore drivetrain, 27.5" wheels and hydraulic disc brakes on an entry level bike - what's not to like? For the vast majority of riders venturing into mountain biking, a Sulcata would make a great starter bike.
