I bought 2 and they are good
Would have thought it's fitted with hydraulic brakes at that price
Went to buy one of these but the chap in Halfords told me these are bought in only for the sale and that the Vengeance is a better bike with better components. The Hellcat has bigger wheels though if that’s your thing. But the saddle is incredibly uncomfortable!

I prefer Shimano gears to Sram so in that way the Vengeance is superior and both share Tektro mechanical disc brakes but the Hellcat has the slightly superior XCM forks over the Vengeance's weaker XCT forks so basically I'd put them as pretty similar but would give the edge to the Hellcat. Also 29" wheels are the same as 700c wheels except allow for thicker profile tyres so if you are intending to use the Hellcat as a road bike as well as offroad you have greater choice of road tyres. 700x35 or larger should fit ok possibly even 700x28 so the Hellcat gives you a wider choice of road tyres plus when you combine the stronger XCM forks and larger wheels that tend to roll over obstacles better the Hellcat may be easier and more durable off road. According to the Cycle Republic the 2019 Carrera Vengeance now has XCM forks too but Halfords are still sellilng off the 2018 Vengeance with XCT forks. Also remember Suntour keep improving their forks year by year with often the stanchion size improving so a 2019 XCT fork may be much better than a 2014 XCT fork, thicker stancions etc for example. So a move to XCM may not just be an upgrade in model but also an upgrade due to the yearly update.

Quiet day?!


Also quite fast typist so don't judge my grammar or spelling too harshly as my hands are often faster than my brain.
Vengeance also has Altus gear shifters and rear mech.. The guy in halfords says the rear mech are worth about £40 and expect them to fail all the time.

The Hellcat would last a lifetime with the sram

he says the hellcat is by far the better bike

My issue is both forks cant be locked out Would have loved lock out on hellcat
Get a xiaomi scooter!
