GT Bikes Zaskar 9R Sport Bike 2014

Since day one GT has been no stranger to the rugged, untamed world of mountain biking. As an industry leader in technology, GT has made a name for itself by consistently setting the standards by which the competition obeys. GT does not only strive for success in the Elite level of racing, but at all levels and disciplines for all riders. The GT Zaskar 9R Sport exemplifies this value well with its impressive blend of performance components at an entry-level price point.

The GT Bikes Zaskar 9R Sport is built around GT's Speed Metal Alloy hydroformed aluminum frame. The Speed Metal design is durable enough to stand up to heavy use, but light enough to compete with the frames of more coveted bikes. GT decided to go with a replaceable derailleur hanger design on this version of the Zaskar alloy frame, so catching your derailleur on a trail obstacle won't result in a ruined frame, but just a quick hanger replacement and you'll be back on the trail. The Zaskar 9R Sport features a forged bottom bracket shell, head tube, and dropouts, ensuring strength and rigidity that can stand up to the daily abuses of trail riding. The tapered 1 1/8" to 1 1/2" headtube makes for a stiff front end that works flawlessly with the RockShox XC30 TK 29 Solo Air fork to absorb bumps and send you on your way faster and with more efficiency. The Rockshox XC30 TK 29 Solo Air provides 100mm of travel, giving you just enough cushion to tame a rough trail, but not so much travel that you find yourself bobbing all over the place during climbs. The Air Spring design allows you to adjust rebound settings to fit your desired style of riding and the PopLoc Remote Lockout offers a convenient way to lockout your fork--a great option to have when climbing efficiency is a priority.

GT chose to outfit the drivetrain of the Zaskar 9R Sport with a 2x10 Dyna-Sys setup from Shimano's workhorse Deore group. Deore is a giant step up from Shimano's beginner level component groups (Alivio, Acera) and incorporates many trickle down features from Shimano's higher end components (SLX, XT, XTR) at a more affordable price-point, providing excellent performance and reliability that will help you take your riding to the next level. Shifting is smooth and responsive, pedaling more efficient, and cross compatibility with higher grade Shimano Dyna-Sys components makes for seamless mixing and matching of parts when it's time for an upgrade to SLX, XT, or XTR. With Deore, you're well on your way to a whole new level of cycling performance.

Continental's reliable Race King tires feature a low profile tread that is perfect for Cross Country trail riding. The Race King tread ensures plenty of bite when cornering but its low profile makes it a fast rolling tire with low rolling resistance. Holding up the Continental Race Kings, is a sturdy wheelset comprised of All Terra Alloy disc hubs with quick release skewers and Jalco XCD22 Double Wall rims. Avid DB1 Hydraulic Disc brakes provide plenty of stopping power when you're speeding down the trail and responsive modulation when navigating tricky terrain. GT rounds out the cockpit of the Zaskar 9R Sport with an All Terra branded stem, saddle, and seatpost, and a lightweight Kore XCD-RD2 6061 Aluminum handlebar.
