GT Karakoram Comp 29er Mountain Bike - 2014Mountain biking technology has come a long way especially in recent years, and mountain bike pioneer GT has been leading every step of the way. The 2014 Karakoram Comp pulls out all the stops for an amazing all-mountain-ready bike with a strong and lightweight 6061 Hydroformed aluminum frame, a 100mm travel fork, and an impressive list of lightweight precision components.
Hydroformed tubing in Karakoram's frame means that shapers can add bulk to the frame in critical areas for strength, but thin the tubing out in lower pressure areas to gain a major advantage in light weight. A 100mm travel fork provides shock absorption that will not only smooth out a rooty, rocky trail, but will also give the rider a huge control advantage when going down rough descents. To complement this setup, 29" wheels (a latter-day innovation in mountain biking) roll over obstacles better than their 26" ancestors while maintaining light weight.
A Shimano shifting setup comprised of a 3-speed front and 9-speed rear derailleur and Shimano Alivio rapid-fire shifters give you 27 gearing options of smooth, reliable, responsive, and low-maintenance shifting over all the cogs so you can climb, accelerate, or pedal at top speeds without concerning yourself with rough, choppy shifting.
Like any state-of-the-art mountain bike, Karakoram doesn't skip out on other components either. Hydraulic disc brakes provide superior stopping power in all kinds of conditions, and more critical to a stellar trail experience, hydraulic disc brakes have excellent modulation--translated, it means the power to slow the bike in higher-speed situations so you maintain total control at max levels of excitement. Alloy stem, handlebars, and seatpost further the lightweight agenda, making Karakoram Comp a trail-ready bike with all kinds of great parts and an incredible deal for under a grand.
