2017 GT Karakoram Elite

The Karakoram is the perfect 29er for the new rider looking to get a fully capable trail bike. The light GT aluminum frame climbs with ease and accelerates quickly, while the SR Suntour XCR fork soaks up trail obstacles with 100mm of plush, controllable front-end suspension. This capable machine rips with a Shimano Deore drivetrain and grippy Schwalbe Rapid Rob 29-inch tires to keep you pinned in the corners. Shimano hydraulic disc brakes provide powerful and reliable breaking no matter what the conditions.
