GT Bikes Zaskar 9R Elite 2012

Ready to get a set of big wheels? The GT Zaskar 9r Elite isn’t for the faint at heart. Throw your leg over the Zaskar 9r Elite and get ready to climb the gnarliest hills, and power through quick switchback sections. GTs 29”er specific geometry ensures that pedaling is efficient and the bike is agile enough to handle switchbacks with grace.

The Zasker 9r Elite features high end components for the self- funded cross country racer. Don’t have tons of sponsors throwing money towards you each riding season? No problem. The GT Zaskar 9r Elite is built with high quality components, that won’t cost an arm and a leg. The RockShox Recon Gold TK Solo Air features 100mm of smooth suspension, with adjustable rebound, and Turn-Key lockout. Lock the fork out as you mountain goat up the hills, and release the lockout when you point the bike back down the mountain. SRAM X7 shifters work with the SRAM X7 front and SRAM X9 rear derailleur to provide quick and crisp shifts. All Terra alloy wheels keep you rolling through the trail. While, the Avid Elixir 3 brakes bring you to a halt, once you’ve decided you’ve had enough fun for the day.

Features:

  • Hydroformed Speed Metal™ Aluminum Frame (TT, ST, DT) Triple Triangle™ frame construction, forged bottom bracket, dropouts, and 1 1/8” integrated head tube w/ 29’er specific geometry
  • RockShox Recon Gold TK Solo Air w/ 100mm travel, QR, Adj. rebound, and Turn- Key lockout

        Comments about GT Bicycles GT Bikes Zaskar 9R Elite 2012:

        Solid performer which gives a lot of value for money. Good components that in my case is realy taking a beating. Rear deraileur is carbon on some models which is easier to break when it gets a solid knock. I had to replace this after a nasty fall and it cost a pretty penny.

        This bike was one of my better buys as it just gets the job done very well. The aluminium hardtail frame requires minimal maintenance and care, but on the downside it is a aluminium hardtail that bites when it gets rough for extended periods in the saddle. Also quite a lot of clatter in the rock gardens.

        I replaced the seat post with one that gives a little and is more forgiving on the backside.

        Overall it is a very good bike for the pricetag.

            I have had this bike for a few weeks now and I absolutely love it! I am amazed at how easily this bike climbs hills. Before I used to shy away from them; now I seek them out!. The 29 inch wheels makes me feel like I can go anywhere. She's a little on the heavy side 28-30 pounds but it's still a great ride. So far I've ridden about 60 miles on it. Over half of that was on one trip, 35 miles and it was nothing. I feel like I could have gone another 10 or 15 miles no problem.

            Excellent bike, would buy another especially at this price from Jenson. Sram X7 and X9 components are smooth. I am 6'02" and large size 29er frame fits perfect.
