2013 GT Force LE 26" Mountain BikeTop of the line enduro performance begins with the rider, but eventually comes down to both rider and bike. The 2013 GT Force LE mountain bike is a top-to-bottom XC winner that can take your mountain bike riding/racing to the next level--after all, we are talking about an Enduro World Series and Italian SuperEnduro winner.
The Force LE starts with some of the industry's most coveted frame technology. Monocoque Hydroformed XM Aluminum with an independent drivetrain suspension system and 160mm of travel in the rear ensures the maximum power transfers to the rear wheel while still absorbing the most daunting terrain like crazy--and with the Fox Float 160mm-travel RLC fork attached to the tapered headtube, this frameset makes the ultimate platform for control, response, and high performance.
To further bolster power and efficiency, Force LE comes equipped with a full Shimano Deore XT shifter and derailleur setup that is powered by a lightweight and virtually indestructible Race Face Turbine Crankset (46/36T chainrings) and transfers to the Shimano Deore XT 10-Speed, 11-36T cassette for the quickest, most responsive, and most user-friendly performance on the trail.
In the cockpit, Force LE boasts Kore OCD-TR aluminum 740mm handlebars mounted on an Easton Haven 60mm stem that work with the tapered head tube and Cane Creek offset headset to maximize steering response and control. A WTB Silverado Race SL Saddle is light and comfortable and mounts on a RockShox Reverb hydraulic remote suspension seatpost for some of the best trail absorbing available. Formula T1 brakes are absolutely no joke--they are XC light and powerful enough for downhill. Massive 24mm pistons provide amazing stopping power, and a patented piston system allows more fluid capacity in the caliper to eliminate brake fade on long descents.
Drop this whole high-performance setup onto a pair of Easton Haven wheels (which are incredibly strong, but weigh in at an amazing 1650g per pair) and Maxxis Ardent tires with EXO protection to reduce flats, and you're digging into the trail with some of the industry's best engineers--they know how to get you there better, lighter, and most importantly, faster.
