    Training camp in an exotic destination is a pretty good perk. GT has quickly emerged to be one of the premier teams in the circuit. They've done it with rapidly evolving bikes, a fun, energetic team and the broad, shoulders of 21-year old Martin Maes. This video gives an inside peek in their...

    At GT they're saying goodbye to a few of their athletes and one team mechanic. To honor Brook MacDonald, Sam Dale, Jackson Frew, Anneke Beerten, and Ely Woods, they've put together a quick goodbye video thanking them for the good times and the years of service these great ambassadors have...

    Let's face it, when buying a new bike price is always a factor. This is even more true for the beginner looking to upgrade from their "starter" bike. The hardcore enthusiast may complain about the never ending cycle of new technologies that seem to come out every other month, but one benefit is...

    What is it? The GT Pantera is a 27.5 Plus hardtail outfitted with a T6 Alloy Triple Triangle Frame for a good balance of weight and durability. The bike's progressive geometry, which provides a longer front center, makes for improved rider balance, climbing traction, and descending control...

    One of the best parts of my job is getting paid to attend trade shows like Interbike and seeing all the hottest new bikes available. Manufacturers bring out the bling and feature their high-end models with matching high-end price tags. There are many reasons that a bicycle can push into the five...

    Our recent round up of 13 new mountain bikes under $3000 was a very popular article and an indication that mountain bikers are looking for help finding great bikes at a great price.

    The GT Verb Expert was available for demo rides at Interbike for dealers and shop employees to experience first hand its trail worthiness (click to enlarge).

    What does "affordable" really mean? Last year after the cycling industry's annual trade show known as Interbike, I did a write-up on some of the best value mountain bikes for 2015. Now, just as then, the amount of bike you can get for $3000 has never been higher. But using the term "affordable"...

    Like the gangly freshman football player that shows potential early on but doesn't live up to his potential until a year or two down the road, the value-packed 2015 GT Sensor X Pro is making a bid for the most improved bike award. We tested the 2014 version of this 27.5-inch wheeled bomber for...

    The GT Helion Carbon Pro is a new XC bike that seeks to expand the definition of cross country into something a bit more aggressive than the old school definition. With 110mm of rear travel and 27.5" wheels, the Helion uses GT's AOS (Angle Optimized Suspension) that their current Sensor and...

    I had a chance to attend the first two days of Outerbike in Moab this year and was able to hook up with schlim (Ben) who's been doing some very insightful Outerbike reviews here for the past few years and his buddy Dietrich. We had a great time on some really amazing trails and on some very...

    I recall talking to **** Hannah at the Sea Otter Classic back in 2009 about his development of the then prototype carbon Fury DH racer from GT. At the time, the thought of a carbon DH race bike was pretty radical. Fast forward several years and now carbon gravity race bikes are prevalent. So...

    Who remembers the old GT Xizang? Back in the 90's, GT had a frame called the Xizang, it came from their SkunkWorks lab that they had in Longmont, CO. That was the pinnacle of the bike, basically equivalent to the Zaskar LE but it was produced in titanium. For 2013, GT has brought back the...
