Gt Karakoram Sport 29Er Mountain Bike – 2016
GT Karakoram Sport 29er Mountain Bike – 2016. Riding on the trail should be about fun, not trepidation for the challenges that lay ahead. Luckily, while many things have stayed the same over the years (rocks are still rocks, single track is still heavenly), suspension and wheel technology have changed dramatically (for the better). Gone are the days of needing pro level skill to handle even the most common of trail obstacles. 29-inch wheel bikes have contributed in a major way to getting more mountain bikers on the trail and riding competently and confidently. The GT Karakorum Sport features massive momentum gathering and obstacle crushing 29er wheels, a Shimano Deore 27-speed drivetrain, and an SR Suntour fork with 100mm of travel. The GT Karakorum Sport is designed with hydroformed aluminum tubes and a Triple Triangle reinforced geometry. The Triple Triangle adds beefy support against trail impact and improves handling. The frame and SR Suntour fork are equipped with steady Promax Solve hydraulic disc brakes and a set of 160mm rotors. The Karakorum Sport mountain bike has a high quality and intuitive 3×9 Shimano Altus and Alivio drivetrain with an Alivio 9-speed rear derailleur. Rapid Fire shifters effortlessly click and push the chain up and down the 11/36 Sunrace 9-speed cassette. 27 speeds means there’s a gear for nearly every grade or condition. Finding the perfect gear means you’ll stay moving forward and in control. Stout All Terra DC20 29er wheels and knobby Kenda Slant Six 2.2 wide tires offer dependable traction. Finally, an alloy 15mm riser bar with a 710mm width puts you in a comfortable, upright position for greater control, comfort and visibility.
