Product Details

The Avalanche is one of GT’s longest running models and its back again for 2019. The Avalanche Elite features a high-end aluminium frame and geometry like the Zaskar, making it an ideal choice if you’re on a budget but still want a bike that can be ridden hard.  With a Suntour air sprung fork, Shimano gears and hydraulic disc brakes GT have ensured the Avalanche offers great value for money.

  • Progressive geometry provides a longer front centre for better balance, better climbing traction and dialled-in descending control
  • The Avalanche geometry ensures excellent climbing, great handling & quick acceleration
  • Front suspension with 100mm of travel with a remote lockout for efficient climbing and the ability to lock or unlock the suspension on the fly
  • Powerful Shimano all-weather hydraulic disc brakes give exceptional performance all year round in any conditions

The Avalanche Elite has been specifically engineered for the mountains, performing to a high standard but it won’t break the bank. With GT’s progressive geometry you get a bike that's balanced, is great at climbing and is dialled in on the descents.  The Elite features the super smooth Suntour XCR-RL air sprung suspension fork which has a remote lockout for efficient climbing and will add grip, better handling and superior comfort.  A generous 20 speed Shimano Deore drivetrain gives you tried and tested gearing for any eventuality and equally impressive are the Shimano hydraulic disc brakes which give you exceptional braking performance in any weather. 

The Avalanche has been stunningly finished with GT All Terra finishing kit that includes flat pedals and a WTB saddle making this truly ready to ride and finished to a high standard. 

Please note:  The small size comes with 27.5 inch wheels. All other sizes come with 29 inch wheels.
