One of the world's most iconic bike brands, GT was formed in 1972, taking it's name from the initials of founder Gary Turner. His first product was a custom made BMX frame for his son, and it's durability made it a hit on the SoCal BMX tracks. As a result of this, Gary started producing BMX frames for general sale from 1974 onwards. By 1987, GT moved into the emerging mountain biking discipline, and shortly afterwards started manufacturing it's distinctive triple triangle design hardtails, which are still made to this day. By 1999 GT have developed the i-Drive suspension system, which proved popular amongst off-roaders. Further innovations included the Downhill IT-1 complete with built in gearbox, a world's first. From 2007 production began on 29" wheel MTBs, and the introduction of carbon in the build process. Nowadays GT caters for Road, Cyclocross and MTBs, as well as a range of BMXs in keeping with it's history. Famous riders to have competed on GT bikes include Hans Rey, Steve Peat, Brian Lopes, the Atherton siblings (Gee, Dan & Rachel), Rebecca Twigg and Juli Furtado.
