2015


Different ecosystems, different continents, different people, different styles, and one shared love: riding. Whether you’re getting steep and technical in the rock gardens of Moab or tackling the Seven Stanes in Scotland, everyone’s ride is different and we’ve got the lineup for 2015 to make sure you get yours just right.

CENTERED ON RIDER GT’s COR Philosophy guides our team to build bikes that fit the needs of the rider. To design the best bikes, we start by thinking about you, the person who will ride it. Whether you're an all-mountain rider, a trail rider, or a downhill rider, you have different needs. We believe that knowing why you ride, how you ride, what you ride, and where you ride, allows us to design the best possible bike. This is the essence of our “Centered On Rider” philosophy: we develop bikes that fit your needs and the type of riding you enjoy most. GT has a rich history of leading technological innovation and we take a modern approach to design, but our holistic approach to engineering starts with understanding the relationship between you and your bike.

GRAVITY Whether you’re the kind of rider who spends half the year chasing the dirt waves or you train through the winter to keep yourself on the podium, you need a rig that stands up to the rigors of the gravity life. The GT Fury is built to take your further and faster than ever before, with over 200mm of travel for the big hits and our patented Independent Drivetrain system to keep you pedaling smooth the whole way down.

INDEPENDENT DRIVETRAIN™ Developed in conjunction with GT Factory Racing, we took the Independent Drivetrain™ and made a design focused on gravity performance. We have made it our goal to bring you something unlike any bike that you’ve ridden; one that will drive you to progress and take it to your personal edge.

Re-engineered to fit the needs of modern downhill racing and gravity ENDURO riders Faster, steeper, highly aggressive, high-velocity

IMPROVED SMALL BUMP SENSITIVITY

Reduced breakaway threshold (pressure required to initiate suspension activity)

IMPROVED BOTTOM OUT RESISTANCE 10% suspension progressivity

IMPROVED PEDALING EFFICIENCY

Reduced pedal feedback, increased BB and HT stiffness = more power to drivetrain with less flex, improved suspension sensitivity = better wheel tracking and traction

our 27.5 story We know you have options when it comes to choosing a bike, and that’s why we wanted to make the decision an easy one. When we designed GT’s bikes around a mid-size wheel, it was with the rider in mind. The 27.5" wheel provides greater rollover vs a 26" wheel without the added weight that comes with a bigger 29" wheel. It’s like a match made in heaven. When you stop to consider all of the benefits you get from 27.5" wheels, perhaps the biggest one is frame geometry. Since we didn’t have to compete with the size of a 29er wheel, we could design a geometry that allows you to enjoy the ride.

12 GTBICYCLES.COM to find out more


The 27.5" wheel also means a better fit for riders of all sizes. From an XS all the way up to an XL, the wheels fit the rider so they never have to compromise on ride feel. GTs 27.5" bikes are a happy medium of the two wheel sizes, with better roll over, increased momentum, and more traction than a 26", but with a smaller rotational mass, more agility, lighter weight, and better acceleration than a 29er. It really is the best of both worlds.

RIDER HEIGHT

THE MOST VERSATILE WHEEL SIZE

WHEEL SIZE

In the end, the way we design our bikes is not just based on how fast they roll, because we know there’s a lot more to your ride than just going downhill. It’s also about how your bike performs when you’re accelerating, braking, and climbing. The 27.5" wheels seamlessly blend everything you need into one incredible ride.

ENDURO A long day in the saddle doesn’t always mean a training ride. For enduro riders, it means testing the limits and pushing your own boundaries to see just how hard you can go. With bikes built for stability and control in the descents and the kind of geometry that gets you pedaling quicker than the competition, GT’s Sanction is sure to keep you going all day and then some.

When we set out to build the best enduro bike on the market, there were quite a few things we wanted to make sure of. It needed to be easy to pedal in the rough stuff and unstoppable on the downhills of the world’s most challenging enduros. What we came up with was the Sanction: developed with GT Factory Racing’s athletes, it also shares their addiction to the effects of gravity.

ANGLE OPTIMIZED SUSPENSION GT’s Angle Optimized Suspension is the only design that separates your pedal stroke from the actual suspension, so all the effort you put into pedaling stays with your pedaling and your suspension only reacts when you need it to. We used a high pivot for optimum shock absorption and maximized pedaling efficiency, paired to the PathLink which neutralizes any pedaling-induced problems and eliminates chain growth. Everything about the suspension is low. So you are centered above the bike and get handling and comfort like never before.

BUMP COMPLIANCE A high main pivot allows the wheel movement in the direction of the impact, improving small bump sensitivity.

LOCKR EXPANDING AXLE SYSTEM The Helion features our new pivot system that expands within itself, kind of like many of the front axles found on forks. The LOCKR Expanding Axle System allowed us to reduce the number of parts needed by 33%, while increasing the stiffness by 6%, and making the whole thing 10% lighter than it was with the pinch bolt. In our world, those are the kind of numbers that measure success.

STIFFER

A rigid joint between the axle and the frame is accomplished by expanding the axle on both sides into the frame member. This allows the axle to transmit torque side-to-side and increase frame stiffness.

LIGHTER

With a weight reduction of almost 50g for the three axles on the Helion, LOCKR does more with less. The main weight reduction is on all the frame pieces that no longer need to have extra material to support pinch bolts or the required pinch bolt hardware. Join the conversation #GTBICYCLES 45

The perfect bikes to fuel a lifetime of love for two wheels.


KIDS Along with your first bike came that first incredible sense of freedom. First was the end of the driveway, then the end of the street, working your way up and out of your parents’ watchful eye and all the way around the block, unleashing the cycling fiend before us today. Spark the same fire in your little ones with bikes designed to fit their frames and durable enough to withstand their expeditions.
