Gt Sanction Pro 27.5″ Mountain Bike – 2016
GT Sanction Pro 27.5 Mountain Bike – 2016. For Enduro, there’s only one bike you need to know: The GT Sanction. This purpose built enduro monster is designed to hustle up the hills and crush the descents. The 6069 27.5 alloy frame features Progressive geometry that puts you in the perfect position for climbing up and hammering down. COR philosophy enduro-specific suspension features Independent Drivetrain technology that can handle pretty much anything you throw at it while still flawlessly handling power transfer. Up front a Fox Racing Performance Elite 36 Float fork with adjustable rebound and 170mm of travel lets you soak up the hits, while a Fox Performance Elite Float X rear shock provides 160mm of travel for a plush, more comfortable ride. But a great frame isn’t much to brag about without excellent components. The Sanction Pro is equipped with a Shimano XT RapidFire shifter and premium XT Shadow Plus rear derailleur, with a RaceFace Aeffect 32T NarrowWide crankset for smooth and dependable shifting without having to worry about losing the chain or sacrificing efficiency. Stopping duties are handled by Shimano SLX hydraulic disc brakes. And of course a bike has to roll on something, and this bike gets around on Stan’s NoTubes Rapid 30 tubeless 27.5 rims laced to Shimano SLX CenterLock hubs–all wrapped up in Maxxis High Roller 2.4 tires for plenty of traction. Rounding out the build are components from RaceFace and WTB for a light, capable, and enduro-ready shred sled.
