GT Bicycles: Preview 2014 Bikes, Sensor, Force & Fury


GT Bicycles have announced details of their 2014 range of mountain bikes and before they start to appear in shops later this year.

The principle behind their new bikes is "centred on rider" (C.O.R), which GT translates to mean the changes they have made can be felt best when riding out on the trail. A key new featured has been dubbed "angle optimised suspension" (A.O.S), check ou the video below for an overview of the technology.


2014 Fury: Downhill
The Fury as had a complete redesign for 2014. Originally developed in 2008-2009, the 2014 version is lighter and stiffer than the 2013 model and features significant changes in geometry and the proprietary Independent Drivetrain suspension system.


Through collaboration with the GT Factory Racing team, GT have been able to develop an all-out fast and aggressive downhill bike, and if you need proof, I suggest you look at the results of the Atherton siblings in the UCI Downhill this year as they are running the 2014 Fury in competition.

The Fury is being launched with three versions of the bike released in Team, Pro and Expert; available in XS, Small, Medium and Large.


2014 Force: All Mountain
For All-Mountain riding your GT of choice will be the Force Carbon. The 2014 Force features all-new geometry and comes with a short stem, wide bars, a long front centre, and 27.5″ (650b) wheels.


The Force is being launched with three versions of the bike released in Team, Pro and the Expert; available in XS, Small, Medium and Large.


2014 Sensor: Trail
The 2014 Sensor has also embraced the move to the 27.5" (650b) wheels. GT have decided 130mm of travel is their sweet spot.


The Sensor is being being launched in carbon and aluminium frames. It will be launched in three versions of the  bike released in Team, Pro and Expert; available in XS, Small, Medium and Large.
