  • XC Materials

    Our X/C race bikes are constructed using either our proprietary FOC carbon fabrication process for minimal flex, or our lighter-weight speed metal for easier climbs.

    Our proprietary FOC methodology for carbon frame fabrication allows us to make a bike frame that doesn’t flex in ways it shouldn’t because of pedaling, steering or impact forces. Basically, you get a frame that rides the way you want without sacrificing the strength and durability you need.

    GT Speed Metal™ is a light-weight aluminum construction designed to be light enough so you can climb with the XC crowd, with the ability to leave them comfortably behind on the way down.

  • Independent Drivetrain™

    This suspension does its job. Period. Because it operates independently of the drivetrain, the suspension can focus solely on its intended purpose – a smoother, faster ride – without making compromises in pedaling efficiency. And because it’s an inherently simple design, it’s easy to set up, ride and maintain. Sound good? Good.

  • Triple Triangle™

    Originally developed to extend the frame life, stiffen the rear triangle and thus create a faster, more responsive ride, the Triple Triangle™ frame has transcended its role as just another tech story and become an iconic symbol of who we are and what we stand for.

  • Tapered Head Tube

    Our forged, tapered head tube affords the same steering response and stiffness without suffering a weight penalty.

        Comments about gt 2013 Zaskar 9R Elite:

        I bought this bike to enter the Forests of Italy,from the very first moment that its tires touched to the mud.I started to love it, mud looks really good on it!

        Great on uphills since it is not very heavy, uphill ascents are actually what i like to do most of the time but it has also tremendous performance during down the hill, control is great, turns are nice.

        I can also feel the invesments made by company on design. Colors and little details with chosen components on it,makes it even better!

        Already made about 500km in a month and no problems so far!
