GT Zaskar Comp 29er Mountain Bike - 2014The Zaskar is one of the longest running models in mountain bike history. The reason for its longevity and continued success is in its simplicity. The patented Triple Triangle design has proven to be resilient and is outfitted every year with the latest and greatest components like you see on the 2014 GT Zaskar 9R Comp mountain bike.
GT's aluminum version of the Zaskar is made from GT Speed Metal, a light-weight construction designed to be light enough so you can climb quickly and descend comfortably. Hydroformed tubes are reshaped to direct material where it's needed most, allowing the frame to exhibit superior strength-to-weight characteristics. The gussets, or where the tubes are welded together, give added support during extra intensity for your added security.
A hardtail's performance can be beholden to its fork. The Zaskar 9R Comp is outfitted with a Rock Shox 30 Gold TK 29 Solo Airfork with 100mm of travel. This fork is well known for an extremely durable spring system called Solo Air. The positive and negative air spring chambers are simultaneously filled to equal air pressures through a single Schrader valve, simplifying suspension setup while retaining a light weight and plush ride quality. Rock Shox Motion Control chews up climbs with incredible efficiency while the patented lockout blow-off valve and threshold control immediately absorb any bumps along the way.
The Zaskar 9R Comp is a competent mixture of great brands including Shimano, All Terra and Formula. The 38/24 Deore 2x10 crankset is performance optimized and features a lighter weight thanks to the Hollowtech II design. The Deore shift levers, which feature easy to use Rapid Fire tech, are matched to a set of FormulaC1 hydraulic disc brakes with 180/160mm rotors. Finally, the Shadow Plus construction of the SLX rear derailleur avoids trail snagging and keeps shifting performance consistent.
Not all 29er hardtails were created equal. The high level of technology and design execution of the GT Zaskar 9R Comp mountain bike will keep you moving over and through terrain with excellent handling, control and speed.
