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 in all disciplines, for all riders. Take a gander at GT’s Zaskar Carbon 100 collection, and you’ll be quick to notice this to be true.
Swing your leg over the 2013 GT Zaskar 100 9R Team bike and hone in on the only thing that matters to you; winning! GT has laid the foundation for the Zaskar 100 9R with the F.O.C. Ultra Speed Blend Carbon Frame that includes a 100mm Travel Independent Drivetrain®. GT’S patented Independent Drivetrain system keeps your efforts concentrated where they belong by virtually eliminating pedal lag and giving you a smooth transition between uphill and down. GT’s proprietary Forced Optimized Constructed (F.O.C.) carbon construction allows the frame to be built for greatly reduced flex, without adding unnecessary material. Therefore, the frame is both rigid and lightweight. The long top tube enables an aggressive position, allowing the rider to navigate through gnarly terrain with confidence in check.
Though the Zaskar 100 9R is known for its rocket-like acceleration and efficiency, its 100mm of travel is there to propel you over rocks, roots, and ruts, amongst other debris, ensuring nothing gets in the way of reaching maximum speed. The Fox Float CTD rear shock and Fox 32 FLOAT CTD FIT Kashima coated fork with remote lockout allows the rider to toggle between Climb, Trail and Descend modes for optimized speed, efficiency, and control in whatever situation the trail may throw at you.
The GT Zaskar 100 9R Team features a steadfast component arrangement for a plush build that can hold its own. The drivetrain is highlighted by a star-studded combination that consists of a RaceFace Next carbon crankset, Shimano XTR rear derailleur, cassette, and shifters, and Shimano XT front derailleur. As stacked as the mechanism is, The cockpit doesn’t fall short of attractive, as the handlebar, stem, and seatpost deliver the Crankbrothers Cobalt 11 carbon craftsmanship. Fizik provides its saddle expertise for superior comfort during extensive days of burning around the course.
It’s no secret that wheels can be the primary factor between a bike weighing like a tank and weighing like a bike. Much more often, stock wheels that come with complete builds do not exactly excel in terms of being lightweight. For a change, the Zaskar Carbon 100 Team comes complete with Easton EC70 XC 29” carbon wheels that are both lightweight and stiff right out of the box.
Nothing feels better after a long, hard ride than standing alone atop the podium with a new piece of hardware and bubbly showering down upon you.
