With 130mm travel on both the front and the rear, you have a bike that is very capable on a wide range of trails. Round all of this out with a comfortable and stable geometry, the new Angle Optimized Suspension, and youve got GT's most responsive ride yet. The Sensor Alloy frame starts by eliminating the weight and bulk of gussets by putting the top tube through a 2-stage hydroforming process. Just like the Sensor Carbon, the Center Stiffness is high with a 2-part forged, welded bottom bracket and wide-set bearings, bearings that distribute the load across the axle. A stretched out top tube give you great handlebar reach too, so your ride is cushy and supremely stable.
