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.
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.
