Bike Sizing: Size XS: 27.5 wheels Size S: 27.5 wheels Size SM: 27.5 wheels Size M: 29 wheels Size ML: 29 wheels Size L: 29 wheels Size XL: 29 wheels GT’s iconic Triple Triangle design adds strength and resilience to the frame without adding excess weight. The Backwoods frame is made from 6061 aluminum, a strong and lightweight aluminum alloy–more where it’s needed for enough strength to resist stresses, and less where it’s not. For even more strength, GT welds reinforcing gussets to high-stress areas. Complementing the frame’s lightweight strength and inherent responsiveness is an SR Suntour XCT-28 fork with 100mm of travel and a preload adjust for custom tuning. The Backwoods Comp’s 3×9 drivetrain includes a Shimano triple crankset and reliable Shimano derailleurs. Rapid Fire shifters function fast and precisely for clean shifts and Promax Decipher hydraulic disc brakes ensure that you’ll never lack for stopping power.
