The Grade knows no bounds. Never before has a high-tech road bike been so capable on low-tech roads. The Grade is ready for everything, from freshly-paved switchbacks along mountain roads to the gravel roads you ride; and everything in between. A carbon frame and fork, SRAM Force 22 drivetrain components and brakes, and Stan's NoTubes Radler wheels make this edition of the Grade something special.
The secret of the Grade's success lies in the unique frame design. GT took their famed triple triangle design and updated it for all-day adventures on rough roads. The main frame is made from GT's Enduroad carbon fiber for a stiff, lightweight ride that's as fast as it is comfortable. The seatstays, however, are actually made of a revolutionary fiber glass composite that helps smooth out the ride and improve vibration dampening for a more comfortable ride on even the harshest roads. And don't worry about how skinny they look--they might look a little delicate, but they're anything but. The full carbon fiber features 15mm thru-axle dropouts for improved stiffness and better compatibility with the included disc brakes.
The GT Grade Force gravel bike is armed to the teeth with outstanding componentry. Shifting and braking are handled by Sram Force 22's 11-speed hydraulic levers, which not only deliver flawless 11-speed shifting, but powerful, dependable braking as well. Braking is handled by hydraulic road disc brakes with 160mm Centerline rotors. Stan's NoTubes Radler wheels with Clement Strada USH tires deliver comfort and performance.
