GT Bikes Zaskar Carbon 9R Elite 2013

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 disciplines for all riders. Take a gander at the 2013 XC Zaskar collection, and you’ll be quick to notice this to be true. The Zaskar is the only bike on the planet to have victories in Downhill, XC, and Trials World Championships.

GT has laid the foundation for the Zaskar Carbon 9R Elite with the F.O.C. Ultra™ Speed Blend Carbon Frame with an Independent Drivetrain™ which operates free of the drivetrain to keep the focus exclusively on its intended function. The F.O.C. carbon fabrication gives the bike unparalleled stiffness that keeps the bike from flexing in awkward ways, keeping power transfer second to none. The F.O.C. Ultra™ Speed Blend Carbon Frame also features Triple Triangle™ construction to extend the frame life and maximize stiffness in the rear triangle for a faster, snappier ride. The Zaskar Carbon 9R Elite is outfitted with a RockShox Recon Gold RL 29 Solo Air fork with 100mm of travel and PushLoc Remote Lockout to give you the power to switch between travel or rigid, depending on what the terrain calls for.

GT strove to provide a versatile setup with incomparable performance and value to captivate recreational riders and racers alike. With that said, the Zaskar Carbon 9R Elite comes outfitted with a Shimano SLX rear derailleur and shifters for unparalleled ergonomics and fast, silky smooth shifting. To keep the overall cost compelling and performance capable, GT mounted a Sram X5 front derailleur. The cockpit is cleverly assembled with some of the biggest names in the game, including Crankbrothers Cobalt 1 seatpost and handlebar, Easton EA50 stem, and Fizik Tundra2 Mg saddle.

The 29” wheel size is the premier choice for XC riders at all levels, due to its speed capabilities and the ability to roll over rocks and roots more efficiently than a 26” wheel. The wheel build combination of Alex XD-Lite rims, All Terra Lightweight Alloy hubs, DT Swiss Competition spokes, and Maxxis Aspen tires provide bomb proof durability, low rolling resistance and plenty of grip when cornering. When your horse gallops as fast as the Zaskar Carbon 9R Elite, optimum stopping power is mandatory, which is why GT went with the Formula RX disc brakes and brake levers. Insanely lightweight, as stiff as the scared competition, and exceptionally fast, the 2013 Zaskar Carbon 9R Elite will have you confidently pinning your number on race day!
