2013 GT Zaskar LE 9r Expert Mountain BikePlanning the next chapter in your mountain bike riding experience can be a huge adventure. If you're looking for some race-level performance or are getting to a level of training that demands a higher level of quality and engineering, the 2013 GT Zaskar LE Expert 29er Hartail Mountain Bike has a laundry list of impressive specs and components that fit the bill perfectly.
GT's own "Speed Metal" alloy frame is made from hydroformed aluminum tubing, a technology that allows the tube to be shaped for ultra strength in critical areas, and slimmed down for reduced weight in others. GT's triple triangle design minimizes the beefiness of the seat stays to reduce weight and retain strength. A 1 ½ to 1 1/8" tapered head tube also enhances rider control and steering response while bolstering lower headtube strength. A RockShox Reba Fork complements the frame perfectly with 100mm of travel, a 15mm ultra strong thru axle, and a remote lockout system so your long climbs can get more efficient at the touch of a button.
The full Shimano XT shifting, crank and cassette component group shifts smoothly, quickly, and responds with ease. The XT cranks feature a 46/36T chainring combination transferring power to the 11-36T 10-speed cassette--this means the perfect array of gearing options are available for bombing, climbing, and accelerating quickly on rolling terrain.
In the cockpit, Zaskar LE boasts Crankbrothers Cobalt 2 Flat Bar, 680mm handlebars mounted on an Easton EA50 60mm stem that work with the tapered head tube to maximize steering response and control. A Fizik Tundra2 Mg Saddle is light and comfortable, and Formula RX hydraulic disc brakes are absolutely no joke--they are XC light and powerful enough for downhill. They provide amazing stopping power, and a patented piston system allows more fluid capacity in the caliper to eliminate brake fade on long descents.
Mount this huge laundry list of XC excellence on a pair of Easton EXP360 29" wheels and Maxxis Aspen, 29"x2.1", 60TPI, Folding Bead tires, and you're lighting up the trail with one of the industry's most responsive, fast, light, and maneuverable XC beasts.
