Market: Yesterday we gave you GT's new racing bike Grade presented, today we're going to push that helion after - an XC fully that should above all inspire nature lovers.
The GT helion is built for quality time on the mountain and is intended to be the perfect companion for full-day excursions or for a weekend filled with racing over rough and steep terrain.
"The Helion is designed for the mountain biker who is interested in a lightweight yet strong XC bike", comments developer Tim Inall. "This bike has a confidence-inspiring handling that guarantees the rider lots of fun and a great time on their bike."
The helion is equipped with GT's most efficient pedal system, the TO-Suspension system that decouples the drive from the suspension and directs pedal forces into forward motion. In addition, the Helion uses the new expanding LOCKR-Axle system that allows for a simpler axle, a lighter axle assembly and ultimately a lighter wheel.
The bike will be available in different versions. Prices are not available to us at the moment. More information is available at www.gtbicycles.com. This video also informs about the development.
