GT Bikes Zaskar Carbon 100 Pro Bike 2012

Throw your leg over the GT Zaskar Carbon 100 Pro 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.

The GT Zaskar Carbon 100 Pro features high end components to ensure a smooth ride. The Fox F Series fork works seamlessly with the Fox RP23 rear shock. 100mm of smooth, pure suspension sucks up any bump, root, or rut in your path. The mixed Shimano/ SRAM drivetrain produces allows for fast and percise gear shifting. Formula R1 hydraullic brakes with quickly bring you to a complete stop once your ride is complete. Packed with tons of other goodies, the GT Zaskar Carbon 100 Pro is ready to hit the dirt.

      Been riding this bike for 1.5 years 2-3 times per week full mountain biking and can't complain. Great both uphill and downhill. Will keep its pace with more expensive bikes. Very pleased with my bike

        Never thought i could afford a bike with this great build kit. Oh, and the frame is really awesome. The only component I have had to work on are the brakes. When you first get these brakes, you must go out and do 12 - 15 extremely hard stops. I did not do that originally. I ride on single track and lightly apply both brakes. This caused them to get a glaze and squeel. I pulled the pads (just pop them right out) and sanded them lightly. I wiped the rotors with alcohol. Then put pads back in, went on the street and did 15 HARD stops. Brakes are rock solid since. So glad i finally got my Full Suspension!!!

          Out of the box the brakes were rubbing. After adjusting the calipers by a mechanic from a LBS, they were OK, although you could still hear some squeaks coming from them. As a hardtail 29er rider I have to say that this bike brings the best out of the 26 inch group with basically no drowbacks. Very agile and maneuverable, thanks to being quite lighweight (size small 26.5 with pedals). The shifting is very smooth and sports car like even under pressure. The rear brake became squeky very quickly (after 30 miles), I'm thinking about maybe replacing the rear rotor. If not for the brakes it would easily a stellar "5".

            Replaced my decade old GF Sugar 2 with this beast. Super light, super agile, but stiff and has forgiving suspension that works always when needed. It's a ridiculous climber holding on and not letting go standing or sitting on the very steepest sections- amazing. Descending, tracks true and keeps those tires on the ground. Beautiful design adds the cherry on the cherry. Can't say enough about this bike, it's too bad GT stopped making them in 26".

            Only minor wish is that the rear suspension had full lock out. I forget about that though when set in "pro mode". The list of pro's for this bike is way too long to write here. It surprised me to see GT in full form again making wildy advanced bikes like this. Best MTB I've owned, and I've had quite a few.
