More About The All-New Carrera Vulcan Mountain Bike

Better Suspension
The Suntour XCM fork here is a step up from that which comes on the Vengeance and Hellcat. Travel increases to 120mm giving you even more surety as the trails get rougher and the lockout feature means you can cut out all suspension for those steep, smooth climbs and transfer power more efficiently
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. 

Lightweight responsive frame

We’ve overhauled and updated the tube profiles so that they are chunkier and more purposeful delivering a stiffer and more capable frame that still has low overall weight at approximately 15kg. 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.

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 Vengeance 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 more!
Controlled braking
Hydraulic disc brakes, which provide efficient and powerful braking even on the toughest surfaces and conditions.

Carrera Vulcan bike maintenance

Keeping your bike in peak condition is key if you plan on having it a long time, so let Halfords look after your bike with CycleCare. With a huge range of services covering everything from your brake cables to the chainset, CycleCare is designed to ensure your bike stays in peak condition, even after plenty of miles. Remember that you always bring your Carrera to your local Halfords store for unlimited free safety checks for as long as you have the receipt.

Our guarantee

We take bike build quality seriously, which is why your new Carrera Vulcan comes with a lifetime frame guarantee. The Carrera Vulcan really is built to last.
