GT Design and Manufacture an excellent range of hardtail mountain bikes, representing fantastic value for money. These GT hardtail mountain bikes are ideal for those riding a range of cross country terrain, but especially those riding gravel roads, fire tracks, grassland and tarmac on rides such as the daily commute.
A staple of the GT hardtail range is the GT Avalanche. The entire Avalanche range has always been one of the best hardtail trail bikes that we have tested, the full range remains comfortable across all kinds of terrain, its predictable handling making it perfect for all abilities.
One of the most popular Avalanche models is the Avalanche Sport, which has been revised for 2022. Sitting between entry level and mid-range hardtail mountain bikes, the Avalanche Sport is ready to hit the trails from day one. The frame is made from a reliable and lightweight alloy, which provides the perfect combination of budget friendly materials, lightweight performance and reliability. The frame is kept looking good and clear of cables through internal cable routing.
At the front of the bike, sits Tektro hydraulic disc brakes which provide excellent stopping power in all weather conditions. There’s also a front suspension fork with 100mm of travel which can be locked out - allowing for comfort and control both in rough conditions, and maximum pedalling efficiency when riding on tarmac.
Additional and new designs for the 2022 year includes a completely new alloy frame, which is designed to have more attitude, look and perform better - as well as a new design of floating seat stays, which adds comfort and further compliance and control. Most of the components on the bike are from microSHIFT and provide reliable, real world performance when shifting across all terrain, and this bike is fitted with the proven WTB Ranger Comp Tyres.
