If you're looking to get started or get back in to mountain biking, you've come to the right place with the GT Karakorum 29er series. While many things have stayed the same over the years (rocks are still rocks, single track is still heavenly), suspension and wheel technology have changed dramatically (for the better). Gone are the days of needing pro level skill to handle even the most common of trail obstacles. 29-inch wheel bikes have contributed in a major way to getting more mountain bikers on the trail and riding competently and confidently. The GT Karakorum Elite features massive momentum gathering and obstacle crushing 29er wheels, a Shimano Deore 30-speed drivetrain, and an SR Suntour fork with 100mm of cross country trail eating travel.

The GT Karakorum Elite is designed with a hydroformed and butted Speed Metal aluminum and Triple Triangle reinforced frame. The Triple Triangle adds beefy support against trail impact and improves handling. The SR Suntour fork offers a remote fork lockout for climbing or riding on even surfaces, as well as 100mm of travel. The frame and fork are equipped with powerful Shimano hydraulic disc brakes and a set of 160mm rotors.

The Karakorum Elite mountain bike has a high quality and intuitive 3x10 Shimano Deore drivetrain with a 10-speed Deore Shadow rear derailleur. The Shadow design keeps your rear derailleur tucked in and out of harm's way from trail debris. Deore Rapid Fire shifters effortlessly click and push the chain up and down the 11/36 Sunrace 10-speed cassette. 30 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.

Stout All Terra DC20 29er wheels and speedy Schwalbe Rapid Rob 2.25" wide tires offer great traction in and out of tight trail corners. Finally, an alloy 15mm riser bar with a 710mm width puts you in a comfortable, upright position for greater control, comfort and visibility.
