Gt Avalanche Comp 27.5″ Mountain Bike – 2016
GT Avalanche Comp 27.5 Mountain Bike – 2016. Want big trail performance without dropping massive amounts of cash? The GT Avalanche Comp is a sport mountain bike that delivers a capable, single-track ready ride at a value that’s hard to deny. Spec’ed with excellent components, and built around a lightweight, durable, and responsive hydroformed 6061-T6 alloy hardtail 27.5 wheel frame. While having a stiff and responsive frame is desirable, a mountain bike needs to help take the sting out of the trail. The Avalanche does that with help from the SR Suntour XCM-HLO suspension fork with 100mm of travel with lock out. That means when you’re on the trail and hitting rocks and roots, you get 100mm of cush to keep you comfy, but when you’re climbing or riding on the road, just turn a knob on the fork and the suspension locks out, giving you a more rigid and efficient riding platform. The Avalanche is also equipped with a mix of Shimano Deore, Alivio and Acera 9-speed components, and a triple crankset. That means you get smooth, reliable, durable shifting components and 27 gearing combinations to choose from. Tektro hydraulic disc brakes give you powerful, all-conditions stopping power that inspires confidence on downhills and tough terrain, and the All Terra 27.5 rims are sturdy and can take hits without folding up or going out of true. Lastly, a set of All Terra Cypher 27.5X2.10 tires help keep you hooked into the trail, so you can rail the corners without washing out.
