2021 GT AVALANCHE EXPERT SATIN BLACK - GLOSS BLACK
The Avalanche is one of the longest running GT models and for good reason. The GT Avalanche Expert provides mid to high-end components for the lightest and most reliable specs on the Avalanche range. With a high-end aluminum frame and modern geometry, you will be able to be out riding hard without busting your wallet. With well known SRAM components and hydraulic disc brakes to provide powerful and consistent stopping power, you’ll be wanting more after each ride.
The Avalanche Expert model provides a several key upgrades compared to other models in the Avalanche range, including a 1x12 SRAM SX drivetrain and an extra 20mm in the upgrade RockShox fork (120mm travel) compared to the Sport/Comp model to help smooth out extra rough terrain. The 1x12 drivetrain means there is only 1 chainring on the front drive, which saves weight while still providing a wide gear range to get you easily up and down hills. Only the Avalanche Expert model has a thru axle on the front wheel to ensure ultimate stability and sturdiness in rough terrain. This GT Avalanche Expert Model comes with 27.5" wheels on smaller frames and 29" wheels on medium and large frames to ensure a great fit for all sizes. You’ll also find powerful hydraulic disc brakes that are typically found on high-end mountain bikes.
