GT Avalanche Elite



Threading your way through singletrack or going wide open down a fire road, you know that the ultimate ride comes with the ultimate maneuverability. Lightweight, fast, and built for the most skilled riders on the planet, the 2018 Trail Hardtail line has got exactly the bike you need. One of the longest running GT models. Often called the little brother to the Zaskar the one thing you cannot call the Avalanche is short on features. With a high-end aluminium frame and geometry similar to the Zaskar, you will be able to be out riding hard without busting your wallet.

Designed around 27.5″ wheels for the S frame size and 29″ wheels for M-XL, the Avalanche gives riders a choice of wheel size allowing them to further fine tune handling characteristics based on their size, riding style and preferences.
