All Day Geometry which consists of a longer wheelbase, slightly slacker head angle and taller headtube on the Grade allow the rider to remain stable and comfortable even in the most grueling of rides.
Over the hill and through the woods… The EnduRoad series bikes are built for the long haul, and especially love it when you take the path that brings on dirt. Comfortable geometries pair up with a stiff frame and the durability you’ve come to love in our mountain bikes for the ultimate in go-anywhere road (and off road) riding.
The Shimano 9 Speed Sora groupset is well known for its performance and durability making it the perfect choice for the Grade. The Sora shifters have the same dual control setup as the top end groupsets and also feature an optical window to show which gear you have selected. Shifting is precise and consistent, right the way through the 9 speed cassette. The Sora chainset and bottom bracket are stiffer and lighter than a standard square taper chainset. With 50/39/30t compact gearing, you can tackle even the steepest climbs with confidence.
Shimano hydraulic disc brakes with a 160mm rotors on both front and rear, offering high stopping power for tracks that you might not normally hit up.
Alex ATD470 double wall disc specific rims are laced to formula hubs finished off with a set of Kenda Kwest tyres in 700x28c. Light, fast rolling and reliable are the best words to describe these wheels, supplying confidence when trekking out on those long rides.
Finishing kit is GT self branded parts, included is the GT droptune Super light bar and 3D forged stem. Topping of the kit is single bolt alloy seatpost and a GT Grade saddle.
GT Bikes, based in Southern California, has been in the business of making great bikes since 1972 when Gary Turner launched one of the first performance BMX race bikes. Developing world class bikes in conjunction with the world’s best BMX rider such as Greg Hill, Eddie Fiola, Jamie Bestwick, Clive Gosling and Dave Mirra, GT grew into one of the biggest brands. With a BMX heritage and based in California the MTB scene was the perfect addition in the late 80’s . GT used the same model of developing performance bikes with the best riders, pioneering new suspension technology and the use of carbon fibre in MTB frames. Winning numerous World Championships in downhill and cross country racing with legendary riders such Nicholas Vouilloz, Steve Peat and more recently Atherton Racing, with Dan Gee and Rachel Atherton. Hans “No Way” Ray has been one of the figurehead of GT’s longstanding team rider program, setting the record for longest sponsorship deal of 26 years and counting. It hasn’t always been about dirt, in the mid 90’s GT took there carbon technology and build track bikes for the USA Olympic team, the bike was later banned for being too fast. GT latest crop of Enduroad Grade models play perfect testament to the brands heritage across, dirt, road and track.
