GT Bikes Zaskar Carbon 100 Expert 2012

Throw your leg over the GT Zaskar Carbon 100 Expert and you’ll instantly fall in love. Though the Zaskar Carbon 100 is known for its rocket like agility and efficiency, the Zaskar has 100mm of travel to propel you over rocks, roots, and ruts, amongst other debris. The Zaskar 100 is comprised of F.O.C. Ultra™ carbon. GT’s proprietary Forced Optimized Constructed (F.O.C.) carbon construction allows the frame to be built without flex, without adding more material. Therefore, the frame is both rigid and lightweight. The tapered headtube, and increased top and downtube further ensure the stiffness.

The long top tube puts the rider in an aggressive position. Therefore, you’re able to navigate through gnarly terrain with your confidence in check. Climbing is a breeze. Stay on the saddle, and you’ll propel to the top of the mountain in no time. The 100mm’s of suspension are put to work upon descents. The surefooted bike allows you to utilize the 3.9 inches of travel, without giving the feeling of going over the bars.

GT added a plethora of high end components beginning with the suspension system. The RockShox Recon Gold TK seamlessly pairs with the Fox Float RL rear shock in order to create supple active yet efficient suspension. Formula RX brakes are strong and offer superior modulation and heat dissipation as you are bombing down the mountain face. The drivetrain is mixed with both Shimano and SRAM components, drawing the very best each brand has to offer.

      Very light and fast, mostly use on single track and local trails. I convert it to tubeless and been performing well, not a fan of formula brake system and plan to switch it out soon. Over all, great bike for the money if you're thinking about it.

        This is the first bike I bought here in the US and I have to say this bike looks nice aside from the fact that it is light.at first the seat was too high for me but it was easy to adjust the seat..I found the bike durable after my little mishap.not even a scratch.i recommend this bike to those who want to try a carbon fiber bike.the price I got was good considering I got a very good bike.

          This bike is a great value for the price.. When I look at purchasing a bike, I look at how much bike I get for the money.. The frame and components are what I look at first. Shimano XT is what I always ride with. Then I read the professional reviews of the bike. This bike is light weight, climbs with ease, handles well, and its suspension is plush. What else could you as for?
