Over the last few years, there has been a definite shift in the road community away from the traditional race mindset. Understanding that the non-conformist of the road needs a high-performance ride, GT created EnduRoad bikes (traditional high performance road bikes that keep you comfortable for longer periods of time). They're the perfect choice for anyone who wants to go on all-day adventures, race a Gran Fondo, or explore those hidden side roads just outside of town. They're loaded with features that matter to the kind of rider who rebels against what road riding "should" be and wants a bike that knows no bounds. The Grade GTw women's road bike makes long days in the saddle feel easy by providing a longer wheelbase, slightly slacker head angle and taller head tube to allow the rider to remain stable and comfortable even on the most grueling of rides. Additionally, a low bottom bracket adds stability and extra tire clearance is available for knobbier rubber.
The Grade Alloy GTw has a smooth-welded aluminum frame and a carbon fork with an aluminum steerer. A GT DropTune Super Light double-butted handlebar features a unique and comfort satisfying 16-degree flair. A set of Alex disc-specific wheels are outfitted with 28c wide Continental Ultra Sport II tires for better traction and comfort. The Grade brakes by way a pair of TRP Hyrd hydraulic disc brakes, which offer superior stopping power.
Finally, the Grade Alloy GTw is equipped with an 11-speed Shimano 105 drivetrain featuring an FSA Omega Mega EXO compact crank. A forgiving 11/32-tooth Shimano cassette allows you to spin on gravel or up steep grades with confidence and control.
