GT Force and Sensor – 27.5 Carbon All Mountain/Trail Bikes

27.5 All Mountain Trail Enduro

Force

All Mountain: GT’s All-Mountain rider is looking for steep climbs, high alpine singletrack, gnarly descents, and the possibility of having to put his bike on his back. With 150mm travel on both the front and rear, GT brings an ultra-capable bike. Featuring premium suspension, the All-Mountain bike has the ability to rip on a wide range of trails.

For All-Mountain riding, GT boasts the Force. This year, the Force features all-new geometry. With a short stem, wide bars, and a long front center, the rider has all the control that he needs for an All-Mountain bike. The Force now also features 27.5″ wheels, which means the rider has the roll-over-anything confidence he’d get with a 29″ wheel with the maneuverability, handling, and braking power of a 26″ wheel. The 27.5″ wheel size coupled with the radical new suspension system, AOS, will elevate any rider’s mountain biking experience to the next level.

The GT team developed AOS for the freedom to ride in a whole new way. The suspension system isolates pedal force, which means that every ounce of effort the rider puts into pedaling is uncompromised. A high pivot position allows for optimal shock absorption, while PathLink neutralizes the adverse effects on pedaling that are generally associated with a high pivot design.  The result is the pedal engagement and power transfer a rider would get with a cross-country bike with the plush feel he wants when it comes time to hurl himself over the hill and through the woods.

Sensor

Trail: The GT Trail bike is designed for the aggressive trail rider who is out ripping singletrack and occasionally testing his racing skills. This rider doesn’t want to compromise on climbing or descending. GT Trail bikes have 130mm of travel on both the front and rear, and premium suspension for the ability to ride an endless variety of trails.

With all new geometry for 2014, the Sensor is the perfect Trail bike. The GT Trail bike fit consists of a short stem, wide bars, and a long front center. The bike also utilizes AOS for unmatched pedaling power.

    This is just what GT Force needed. I have a 2010 Force Carbon Pro I have been riding it for the last three years. I really started looking for a 275 for my next bike a couple of weeks ago. I think I found it! The issues on the old force that I would of fixed have been addressed. One being the head angle going to be 67.2. The old angle was a cross country angle on a all mountain bike. The other issue, I always feel high riding the bike. The new set up brings you back into the bike, helping for a stabler ride and better control on the downhill. Last was the new wheel size. I have rolled on a 29er and a 26er. The new wheel size is going to be perfect. I forgot to mention the new wheels are tubless. If you shred like I do, you know what a perk this is. Can’t wait to ride one and see if it is everything I dreamed it to be. Has anyone rode one up in deear valley yet? What did you think of the ride? Does anyone know when the will be going on sale?

    Just picked up one of the early deliveries of these (Force Carbon Pro). Single best thing I have done for my riding in a long time. Gone from a Sanction 1 which i loved. Begs to be dropped into corners, rails like nothing I have ridden, unlike the reviewers I have noticed a much better rollover than the 26″ rims, the super tall 2.4s help. The wider bars caught me out through a narrow gap on the first ride and I ejected over the bars. The finish is also easily messed up, mine looks decidedly secondhand after about 3hrs of riding. The cockpit just feels so much better and more natural than my Sanction. Lets hope the Carbon frame holds up nicely. The stealth dropper is also very good!
