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 Bicycles have been at the forefront of success in the World’s top mountain biking events, such as the 2013 World Cup at Fort William and Val di Sole, where Rachel and Gee Atherton took double victories at both (back to back) events. GT does not only strive for success in the Elite level of racing, but at all levels and in all disciplines for all riders. Take a gander at the 2014 Sensor collection, and you’ll be quick to notice this to be true.
Set out on a weeklong trail adventure atop the 2014 Sensor Carbon Expert, the do-it-all, trail-conquering machine! GT has laid the foundation for the Sensor Expert with the GT COR Trail Philosophy, FOC Ultra Carbon Frame that includes a 130mm Travel Independent Drivetrain® and AOS (Angle Optimized Suspension) Suspension System that separates your pedal stroke from the actual suspension, allowing all of your energy to be exerted into the pedals so that your suspension only reacts when you need it to, while a high main pivot allows the wheel to move in the direction of the impact, improving small bump sensitivity.
The Sensor Carbon Expert is outfitted with a RockShox Sektor Gold RL 27.5 Solo Air up front and a Fox Racing Shox Float CTD BV in the rear, providing over five inches of travel throughout, for a satisfying combination of trail absorption and responsiveness. The RockShox Sektor Gold RL 27.5 features lockout and rebound adjustments, and 15x100mm Maxle. The KS LEV Integra remote actuated dropper seatpost allows you to adjust your seat height without leaving the saddle, to ensure you are in the proper riding position when descending, climbing and drilling across flats.
Designed for the kinds of riders who feel cleaner the dirtier they get, the Sensor Carbon Expert is equipped to get up close and personal with the mud and grime. Equipped with a Shimano Deore XT Shadow Plus rear derailleur, the Sensor Expert supplies more clearance, smoother shifts, reduced chain slap and dropped chains. The SLX front derailleur and shifters add exceptional performance and versatility at a value. To increase overall efficiency and attractiveness of the drivetrain, the Sensor Expert comes with a Race Face Evolve triple ring crankset, designed to handle aggressive All Mountain riding at an XC crank weight, while retaining the craftsmanship and performance Race Face is famous for.
The 27.5” (650B) wheel size has become the talk of the town, for having the speed and rollover capabilities once known to only the 29” world, while offering the agility and nimbleness of a 26” bike. The Sensor Carbon Expert was designed to work in conjunction with GT’s AOS technology and the Optimized Pivot Placement for unsurpassed roll-over performance. The wheel build combination of WTB ST i23 Tubeless compatible rims, All Terra High Flange Alloy Disc hubs with sealed bearings, and Continental X-King tires, provide bullet proof durability, minimal rolling resistance and optimal traction in the corners. When your horse gallops as fast as the Sensor Expert, optimum stopping power is required, which is no wonder why GT went with the Formula T1S disc brakes and brake levers for superior braking confidence.
Grab some buddies, climb into the saddle of the Sensor Expert, strap on your hydration pack, and don’t look back!
