GT Helion Elite Bike

GT Helion Elite Bike

Hell on wheels

GT has a long history of being at the forefront of mountain bike suspension design. GT’s I-drive system revolutionized the way suspension worked. It showed that a bike could still be pedaled efficiently with suspension that remains plush, soaking up rough terrain. Over the last couple of decades the I-drive system has evolved into the AOS system. This refined version still offers excellent pedaling efficiency and superior performance in a package that is better suited to meet the needs of today’s riders and bikes.

GT outfits the Helion Elite with their 6061-T6 aluminum frame with 110mm of travel and geometry optimized for XC riding and racing. The AOS suspension works with the X-fusion shock to maximize pedaling efficiency while remaining plush over rough singletrack and downhills. The RockShox Recon fork supplies 120mm of travel to soak up the bumps and keep the Helion tracking in the right direction. Solo Air and external rebound adjuster lets you dial in the perfect feel, with a remote lockout to assist with climbing efforts. The Shimano 2x10 speed drivetrain can always be counted on to provide accurate shifts and dependability, with a huge gear range that will keep you jamming down the road, and spinning your way up challenging climbs. Keeping everything under control are the powerful Shimano hydraulic disc brakes and lightweight GT cockpit.

When you want to hit the trails at breakneck speeds without breaking the bank, the Helion Elite is the answer you’ve been looking for. With the same AOS suspension as its bigger brothers, the Helion is ready to get you going all over the mountain faster than you were prepared to go.
