Remember when riding your bike was about seeing the world from two wheels? When you set out on a ride for the sole purpose of having fun? It's time to get back to your roots and remember what riding cross country is all about. The GT Helion Expert 2015 Mountain Bike has got your back: lightweight, fast, and ultra-stable, these bikes are just as ready for a day-long mud fest with your buddies as they are for your first weekend of racing.
We know you have options when it comes to choosing a bike, and that's why we wanted to make your decision an easy one. When GT designed their bikes around a mid-size wheel, it was with the rider in mind. The 27.5 inch wheel provides greater rollover versus a 26 Inch wheel without the added weight that comes with a 29 inch wheel. It is like a match made in heaven! The 27.5 inch wheel also means a better fit for riders of all sizes: the wheels fit the rider so you never have to compromise on ride feel. In the end, the way GT design their bikes is not just based on how fast they roll, because they know there's a lot more to your ride than just going downhill. It's also about how your bike performs when you're accelerating, braking, and climbing.
