GT Avalanche Sport 27.5 / 29er 2018 Bike
The Avalanche series of hardtails from GT are all about having a great time while holding great value and superb functionality. Adapt the bike to ride however you see fit, whether it's smashing the singletrack with your mates, taking on your own personal fitness regimes, or even daily commuting (with plenty of shortcuts).
The Avalanche Sport is an entry level model in the 2018 Avalanche range, with understated, reliable performance components for more casual riders. Built around a stiff and responsive Triple Triangle alloy frame with Suntour 100mm travel fork, sharp Shimano hydraulic brakes and 3x9 speed Shimano gearing. The wheelbase is nice and long for stability at speed, and the low standover allows good body clearance for when things get rugged and the saddle needs to drop.
The 29-inch wheels are designed for long distances, and they also make short work of harsh roots and tall bumps. However in order to retain a similar geometry across sizes, the small frame option uses a 27.5-inch wheel.
