Discover the road less traveled on the all-new 2016 GT Grade carbon gravel bike. The GT Grade is one of the most exciting and interesting bikes to come out in the last year. While everyone is making a gravel/adventure bike, GT found a way to make something that stands above the rest. <p> <p>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.<p> <p>And of course having an awesome frame like this is nothing if it's not spec'ed with great components. Or in this case, the best components available. Shifting and braking are handled by Shimano's brand new R8685 11-speed hydraulic levers, which not only deliver flawless Ultegra-level 11-speed shifting, but powerful, dependable braking as well. In addition to this technology breakthrough, you also get the best front shifting in the business, thanks to the new front derailleur with improved lever arm, and redesigned rear derailleur for crisp, accurate shifting in any gearing combination. Braking is handled by Shimano R685 hydraulic road disc brakes with 160mm Ice Tech center lock rotors.<p> <p>Rounding out this package is a set of Stands No Tubes Grail disc road wheels laced to DT Swiss 240 hubs with a 15mm thru-axle front hub and 135mm rear. You'll be perched on a Fizik Aliante VS MG saddle for comfort, and an FSA K-Force 27.2mm carbon fiber seat post for extra vibration dampening.<p> <p>Get your adventure today. <p>
