BETHEL, CT (BRAIN) — GT Bicycles recently unveiled its new line of full-suspension mountain bikes, which includes three new models for 2014. The bikes were designed around the new GT Centered on Rider (C.O.R) philosophy with a focus on the relationship between the rider and the bike to create the best possible ride.
"At GT, we know that no two riders are the same. Everyone has their own unique personality and style of riding," said Tim Inall, GT's global general manager. "That's why, this year, we're here to redefine the ride. GT's new C.O.R. approach means that we build bikes to specifically fit the needs of the rider, whether he or she is looking to race the clock in a DH race or attack singletrack on a trail ride."
New this year, the 150-millimeter-travel all-mountain Force is equipped with a short stem, wide bars, a long front center and 27.5-inch wheels. It also features GT’s new suspension system, AOS, designed to isolate pedal force for efficient power transfer.
The GT Sensor is designed with the aggressive trail rider and occasional racer in mind, with 130 millimeters of travel front and rear on the AOS suspension platform.
For the gravity rider, the redesigned Fury is lighter and stiffer and features an all-new GT Independent Drivetrain suspension system. GT collaborated with the GT Factory Racing Team to develop the new Fury, which both Gee and Rachel Atherton recently rode to victory in the Fort William and Val di Sole World Cup races.
