GT Karakoram Mountain Bike
The 2016 edition of the GT Karakoram mountain bike ensures each of your outings into the woods are fun-filled, off-road endeavors. The Karakorum features massive momentum gathering and obstacle crushing 29" wheels, a Shimano 3x9-speed drivetrain, plus a SR Suntour suspension fork with 100mm of cross country trail-eating travel.
The Karakorum is designed with hydroformed aluminum and a Triple Triangle reinforced frame. The Triple Triangle adds beefy support against trail impact and improves handling. The SR Suntour suspension fork offers a mechanical fork lockout for climbing or riding on even surfaces, as well as 100mm of travel. The frame and fork are equipped with Promax hydraulic disc brakes and a set of 160mm rotors for exemplary all-condition stopping power.
The Karakoram is equipped with a Shimano 3x9-speed Altus/Alivio drivetrain with an Alivio 9-speed rear derailleur. Rapid Fire shifters effortlessly click and push the chain up and down the 11-34T Sunrace 9-speed cassette which provides gear ratios to handle a wide variety of challenging terrain. Stout All Terra DC20 29er wheels with Kenda Slant Six 2.2" wide tires offer great traction out on the trails. Additionally, an alloy 15mm riser bar with a 710mm width puts you in a comfortable, upright position for greater control and comfort.
