Maneuverable. Lightweight When GT started building bikes, it was all about hitting the trails with your buddies, not just gearing up for a long race weekend. We never lost touch with those roots, so we've developed the Helion for the XC rider who wants to go hard with friends and sometimes get rewarded with a cold beer, instead of another medal. Stable, maneuverable, and lightweight, the all-new GT Helion is the ultimate blend of past, present, and future fun.RockShox Reba RLT Suspension Fork The RockShox Reba RLT fork comes with 120mm of travel, providing a silky smooth performance and also maintaining traction, Remote lock out allowing you climb easier with a rigid fork and descend with pleasure to hit all the rock-infested trails with the full travel.Shimano XT Drivetrain The Shimano drivetrain is the perfect combination of performance and durability, with the XT shadow plus rear derailleur to enhance gear indexing and to reduce chain slap, the Race Face Aeffect chainset with its CNC machined arms help to reduce weight but maintain the strength. These both will ensure the classic Shimano reliable shifting and performance Shimano SLX Hydraulic Brakes Shimano SLX hydraulic disc brakes with a 180mm center lock rotor on the front and the rear, offering high stopping power for tracks that you might not normally hit up.Race Face Finishing Kit Finishing kit is by Race Face, set up with 6061 aluminum handlebars, stem, and seat post. Topped off with a WTB Silverado saddle for that little bit more comfort.
Mountain Bike Deals
I originally found this deal at Wiggle, who are widely established as one of the biggest cycle retailers in the UK. The first incarnation of this giant was as a small bike shop based in Portsmouth, named Butler Cycles. A few years later this evolved into Bikes @ Butlers to highlight their intentions to move the business online with the .com boom and subsequent rise in online sales. At the end of May in 1999 Wiggle.co.uk was launched by Mitch Dall and Harvey Jones. A rapid growth resulted in a need to move premises, and so in 2002 it relocated to Jackson Close, Portsmouth. This strong growth continued, and Wiggle has relocated twice since, the first being to Lakeside 1000, and then leaving Pompey altogether for a huge warehouse located centrally in Wolverhampton. Similarly to CRC, Wiggle stock many own brands, such as dhb, Eastway, Lifeline and Verenti, as well as bike, components and clothing from all of the leading manufacturers. Despite it's origins as a bike shop, Wiggle continue to stock equipment and apparel for not just road cycling and mountain biking, with extensive product lines for other disciplines such as triathlon kit, children's and commuters products and also running clothing and accessories. Prompt in delivery, and offering efficient returns and competitive pricing, Wiggle remain a firm favourite amongst serious and recreational cyclists alike, not least because of the customary bags of Haribo they include free with orders to keep their customers sweet!
