Matt Walker's Saracen Ariel LT All-Mountain Bike 1

The bike that was shredded in Vital RAW.

Junior Downhill World Champ, Matt Walker just destroyed the trail in his Vital RAW aboard this Saracen Ariel LT. He rides a size medium and is pretty casual about his set-up. "As long as it feels good, I'm not too specific. Tire pressure is somewhere between 20 and 30psi," he laughs.

The carbon frame features an adjustable head tube that can adjust front-center measurements by 5mm, 37mm main pivot bearings, 28mm linkage bearings, Saracen TRL suspension design, Boost spacing out back and 165mm rear travel. Matt's running a Shimano XT drivetrain and brakes, FOX 36 Float Factory fork, FOX Float X2 Factory shock and Pro components in the cockpit. Maxxis Minion DHF tires with the skinwall treatment round out the color-matched build.

Matt won Junior World Champs Downhill in Cairns, Australia aboard this prototype 29er Saracen DH bike.
