Gt Helion Expert Full Suspension Xc Mountain Bike – 2016
GT Helion Expert Full Suspension XC Mountain Bike – 2016. GT’s Helion Expert is a cross-country bike for those who love to fly cross country. This is a bike built for technical cross country riding and features 27.5 wheels for superior roll-over power without sacrificing acceleration. There’s 110 mm of travel in the frame and fork, which is more than most XC category bikes, to soak up descents. It all adds to a beautifully balanced setup that also has slack head and seat tube angles to create a XC machine that will hug the trail no matter the terrain. GT’s Progressive Geometry is intended to build confidence as it affords better control while you descend, and it does it without sacrificing body position for climbing. The foundation for all of this of course is GT’s 6061-T6 hydroformed aluminum frame. It keeps things lightweight while ensuring years of rugged, dependable riding. The Helion Expert’s hardware starts with a Fox Performance Elite 36 Float, 6.5×1.5 Air Shock. It comes with rebound adjustment lockout remote to the handlebar for on-the-fly control. The RockShox Reba fork, 120mm of travel, also has remote lockout and rebound adjust. The fork’s remote lockout emables you to ride to the trailhead, then unlock the fork’s travel without moving your hands or slowing down. Braking power is supplied by Shimano Deore hydraulic discs, with metallic pads and 180mm Centerlock rotors. Shimano Deore derailleurs, front and rear, translate your power with crisp precise shifting via a Shimano SLX 38/24T crankset. The Helion Expert’s wheels feature WTB STP i23, tubeless-compatible rims that make sealing the WTB BeeLine TCS tires a snap. Finishing details include Raceface handlebar, stem and seatpost and add a clean, form-follows-function style to your cross country adventures. Cross-country riders take note. This bike will eat technical trails up, with its balance weight, comfort, style, and durability. Now’s the time to unleash your XC animal with the Helion Expert.
