2014 GT Force X Expert Carbon Mountain Bike - All Mountain 160mm Mountain Bike - New GT 650b
"STEEP CLIMBS, HIGH ALPINE SINGLETRACK, GNARLY DESCENTS, AND THE POSSIBILITY OF HAVING TO PUT YOUR BIKE ON YOUR BACK IS WHAT THE GT ALL-MOUNTAIN RIDER LIVES FOR"
Our most versatile mountain bike range and quite possibly the most fun, the 2014 GT Force Carbon comes with 150mm travel on both the front and the rear and bad-ass geometry.
The 2014 GT Force Carbon includes our brand new Angle Optimized Suspension platform.
The 2014 GT Force Carbon uses our FOC Ultra frame construction method, which takes a minimalist approach to carbon fabrication by using the fewest possible layers of high-modulus carbon to achieve a stiff, reliable, and responsive ride. We focused on Center Stiffness with a 2-part forged, welded bottom bracket and wide-set bearings, connected by hollow through-axle pivots. In the rear of the bike, we have dual-bearing pivots to distribute the load and maximize the stiffness of the rear axle.
