When it comes to riding off-road, there are few brands that have such an extensive and proven history as GT. The GT women's (GTw) Avalanche, now in production for nearly ten years, has been widely embraced for its fit, tech and spec. The GTw fit is designed with a woman's natural body geometry in mind; a shorter reach to the handlebars, greater standover height for comfort, and narrower handlebars for improved front end control. Then, the technology and specifications of the Avalanche Comp deliver the performance you expect. The Comp features a hydroformed aluminum frame, SR Suntour XCM front suspension with 100mm of travel, Promax hydraulic disc brakes and a Shimano 27-speed drivetrain. <p>While mountain bikes come in all shapes in sizes today, there's something about the simplicity and grandeur of the hardtail mountain bike. 27.5" mountain bikes are said to be the perfect size for mid-height riders and for good reason. With an improved angle of attack, a 27.5" wheel will roll over faster and easier than a 26-inch wheel. The larger the wheel, the smaller the obstacle relative to the wheel. Sounds easy enough and when you encounter a log or a rock, you quickly learn that this is true. Also, the 27.5" wheel offers improved agility. It's easy to get off the ground and get some air, and it's easier to maneuver through winding and tight singletrack lined with precarious branches. Plus, the 27.5" wheel size yields a lower center of gravity for more stability byway of the relative position of the bottom bracket to the wheel axle. Your body will feel more comfortable and centered as a result.</p> <p>The Avalanche Comp is designed with a hydroformed, butted aluminum and Triple Triangle reinforced frame. The Triple Triangle adds beefy support against trail impact and improves handling. The SR Suntour XCM 27.5" fork offers a hydraulic fork lockout as well as 100mm of bump-eating travel. The frame and fork are equipped with powerful Promax hydraulic disc brakes and a set of 160mm rotors. </p> <p>The GT Avalanche Comp 27.5" mountain bike has a high quality and intuitive 3x9 Shimano drivetrain with a 9-speed Deore rear derailleur. Alivio Rapid Fire shifters effortlessly click and push the chain up and down the 11/36 9-speed cassette. 27 speeds means there's a gear for nearly every grade or condition. Finding the perfect gear means you'll stay moving forward and in control.</p> <p>Stout Alex double wall 27.5" wheels and speedy All Terra tires offer great traction. Finally, an alloy 30mm riser bar and a GT women's specific saddle puts you in a comfortable, upright position for greater control, comfort and visibility.</p>
