GT Grade Carbon 105 Gravel Bike - 2017
$2,499.99 MSRP $2,710.00
The secret of the Grade's success lies in the unique frame design. GT took their famed triple triangle design and updated it for all-day adventures on rough roads. The main frame is made from GT's Enduroad carbon fiber for a stiff, lightweight ride that's as fast as it is comfortable. The seatstays, however, are actually made of a revolutionary fiber glass composite that helps smooth out the ride and improve vibration dampening for a more comfortable ride on even the harshest roads. And don't worry about how skinny they look--they might look a little delicate, but they're anything but. The full carbon fiber features 15mm thru-axle dropouts for improved stiffness and better compatibility with the included disc brakes.
The GT Grade Carbon 105 road bike features slick and stylish high-performance components. Shimano hydraulic brakes and a Shimano 105 11-speed mid-compact drivetrain deliver flawless results. Stan's No Tubes Radler disc wheels with Clement Strada Ush 32C tires supply plenty of grip, even in tight singletrack conditions. A GT DropTune Super Light double-butted handlebar and 3D Forged Alloy SL stem place your body in the perfect position, and a Fizik Monte MG saddle supplies all-day comfort.
