Update
Light and fast; that's what you want a cross country hardtail to be. The all-new Zaskar Carbon Elite is exactly that and utilizes the best of today's budding technology. New for 2016, the Zaskar ditches the 29er wagon wheels for a pair of 27.5" hoops that give you the best of both worlds: the nimble handling of a 26" wheel, and the angle of attack and ability roll over trail obstacles of a 29er. Finished off with a Shimano Deore/SLX groupset, the Zaskar Carbon Elite is one amazing bike to go full throttle when you hit the dirt.

The GT carbon frame fabrication success hinges upon the F.O.C. Ultra process. The F.O.C. blend simply puts carbon where you need it for strength and stiffness, and removes any extraneous material to achieve the lightest and most agile frame possible. GT's Triple Triangle frame construction and tapered head tube translate into unrivaled stiffness for unparalleled acceleration and climbing efficiency.

The Zaskar Carbon Elite is outfitted with Shimano SLX and Deore components. SLX received an attractive cosmetic overhaul in recent years, but this highly versatile group still delivers smooth shifts and comfortable ergonomics. A Shimano SLX Shadow rear derailleur improves stability, ease of adjustment and reaction time under pressure.

A proven and lightweight Rock Shox Recon Gold RL 27.5" fork with 100mm of travel provides all the suspension you need for a fast-paced singletrack ride. The Reba RL features a rebound adjust, PopLoc remote lockout and a tapered steerer. The 15mm thru axle design further stiffens the front end for response and handling.

Kore and WTB are now veterans of the mountain biking game. Year after year they continue to produce innovative products that produce results. The Zaskar Elite rolls on WTB ST il9 TCS wheels. Kore XCD-R1 riser bars have a versatile 710mm width to place you in the proper riding position. A Fizik Tundra M7 MG saddle rounds out a bike made from the brands that deliver when going fast just means going a little bit further during a great ride.
