GT Zaskar Carbon 9R Elite 29er Mountain Bike - 2014All new for 2014, the GT Zaskar Carbon Niner Elite 29" mountain bike is a hardtail that exists in the upper sphere of performance and light weight. GT designers left nothing to chance with the Zaskar, which boasts some of the industry's best carbon fiber frame technology, a mean set of cross-country-ready RockShox, and a blemish-free list of components.
GT's Triple Triangle frame design has always scored high for durability and power transfer--now couple that design with Speed Blend carbon technology and you have all the weight benefit of full carbon with all the beef in the headset, bottom bracket, and chainstays to keep the bike ultra-responsive in steering, climbing, and acceleration, but nice and compliant absorbing trail buzz for a smooth, comfortable ride. Add in the RockShox Recon 100m fork and the platform for Zaskar CRB Elite is ready for any riding or racing scenario.
To further support the most extreme cross-country endeavors, Zaskar CRB Niner Elite features a full Shimano drivetrain to include SLX shifters and derailleurs, Deore 2x10 crankset, and 10-speed cassette. Shimano is among the giants of smooth, reliable, and low-maintenance pedaling and shifting, and their SLX group is among their better offerings. The 2x10 drivetrain gives you 20 shifting options for all situations from climbing to breathtaking top speeds.
An Alex XD-Lite Wheelset promises amazing alloy lightness and total trail dependability--these wheels are specifically designed to stay true in the face of high-speed encounters with rocks, roots, and the roughest landings you can dish out. All Terra sealed hubs keep the dust out, and Continental Race King Tires keep you out of the dust with aggressive side knobs for cornering, and a speed-friendly top tread for leaving others behind. Of course, stopping is just as important as going, so Zaskar is outfitted with Formula RX Hydraulic Disc Brakes which have incredible stopping power as well as excellent 1-finger modulating action so you can slow as needed to keep yourself on the bike and ahead of the pack.
Zasker also boasts some great names in mountain biking components such as Crank Bros alloy handlebars and Seat Post and an Easton EA50 alloy stem. A flat handlebar and 8 degree stem rise equal out to an aggressive riding position that can be adjusted to your comfort level while still maximizing your efficiency in the saddle. No detail is left unaddressed with the Zaskar Carbon Elite--it's a fully loaded mountain-ready bike that will satisfy even the most discriminating mountain bike enthusiast.
