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 2014 Force collection, and you’ll be quick to notice this to be true.
Swing your leg over the 2014 GT Force Carbon Expert and worry not about whether or not your rig can handle the trails, but whether or not you’ll be able to pry yourself from the saddle after an invigorating day of trail-shredding. GT has laid the foundation for the Force Carbon Expert with the COR All Mountain Design, FOC Ultra Carbon Frame that includes a 150mm Travel Independent Drivetrain® and AOS (Angle Optimized Suspension) Suspension System that separates your pedal stroke from the actual suspension, allowing all of your energy to be exerted into the pedals so that your suspension only reacts when you need it to. A high main pivot allows the wheel to move in the direction of the impact, improving small bump sensitivity.
The Force Carbon Expert is outfitted with a RockShox Revelation RL Solo Air 27.5 up front and a Fox Racing Shox Float CTD BV in the rear, providing nearly six inches of travel throughout, for a satisfying combination of trail absorption and responsiveness. The RockShox Revelation RL Solo Air features lockout and rebound adjustments, and a 15x100 Maxle.
Designed for the kinds of riders who feel cleaner the dirtier they get, the Force Carbon Expert is equipped to get you up close and personal with the mud and grime. Equipped with a Shimano Deore XT Shadow Plus rear derailleur, the Force Carbon Expert supplies more clearance, smoother shifts, reduced chain slap and dropped chains. The SLX front derailleur, shifters, and cranks add exceptional performance and versatility at a value. The Force Carbon Expert cockpit is assembled with a resilient, yet sexy combination that includes a Kore handlebar and stem, Fizik Gobi XM Mg saddle, and a KS LEV Integra dropper seatpost for for six inches of silky smooth adjustment to keep rythm on your ride.
The 27.5” (650B) wheel size has become the talk of the town, for having the speed and rollover capabilities that was once only known in the 29” world, while still offering the agility and nimbleness of a 26” bike. The Force Carbon Expert was designed to work in conjunction with GT’s AOS technology and the Optimized Pivot Placement for unsurpassed roll-over performance. The wheel build combination of WTB ST i23 Tubeless compatible rims, All Terra Tall Flange Alloy Disc hubs with sealed bearings, DT Swiss spokes and nipples, and Continental X-King tires, provide bullet proof durability, minimal rolling resistance and optimal traction in the corners. When your horse gallops as fast as the Force Carbon Expert, optimum stopping power is required, which is no wonder why GT put its faith in the Formula T1S disc brakes and brake levers to stop this stallion.
All in all the Force Carbon Expert is constructed and assembled to crush any such terrain you may encounter out on the trail; completed with a short stem, wide bars, and a long front center, giving you the control that you require when bombing downhill, while providing enough room for you to bolt back uphill. The 150mm of top-notch suspension travel on both the front and the rear, combined with an aggressive geometry brings forth a bike that is very lively and capable on just about any trail.
