Your new foray into mountain biking means a new ride, and you’d probably like to find one that will stick with you as you explore your local trails, beefing up your skills. If this is the case then take a look at the Avalanche range of MTB's.
The Avalanche comes fitted with Avid DB1 hydraulic disc brakes and provides impressive stopping power in wet and dry conditions. This gives you the confidence in knowing that you will stop when you need to. Soaking up the bumps along the trail are a set of Rockshox XC28 forks and provide 100mm of travel so giving you plenty of front end comfort as you hurtle down the tracks/trails. The gearing is taken care of thanks to a mixture of Shimano components and thanks to the triple chainset, and the 9 speed rear cassette, you have 27 gears to play with so finding the right should not be a problem. Climb the toughest of hills, and hurtle down the descents and along the flats - with 27 gears you can.
This classic hardtail from GT also features an aluminium frame with the iconic Triple Triangle. Originally developed to extend the frame life, stiffen the rear triangle and thus create a faster, more responsive ride, the Triple Triangle™ frame has transcended its role as just another tech story and become an iconic symbol of who GT are and what they stand for.
Ridden by Weekend Warriors and enthusiasts alike, trail bikes balance strength and durability with light weight and reliability, so they are equally at home on the singletrack, the sprint for the finish line or a Sunday thrash with your friends. From the all-day ride ability of the Sensor, to the classic aluminium hardtail approach of the Avalanche and Aggressor, there's a trail bike for whatever you ride however you ride it.
Each Avalanche is fully built, tested and tuned by Wiggle's team of qualified bike mechanics to ensure you're bike arrives in perfect condition. To find out which size fits you use the size chart below.
If you are looking for a mountain bike that can comfortably negotiate bumpy, cross-country, singletracks yet still be quick and nimble on the road, then a hardtail bike is for you. Hard tail mountain bikes have front suspension, weigh less and are more pedal efficient when the terrain is smooth, than full suss bikes. A good number of single track racers still use hardtails for these reasons. At wiggle, we stock a wide variety of hardtail mountain bike brands including Felt, Focus, GT, Kona, Mongoose, Saracen and more. So if you are searching for superb, quality spec hardtail mountain bikes at great value with a legendary service to match, then you've come to the right place.
GT Bikes, based in Southern California, has been in the business of making great bikes since 1972 when Gary Turner launched one of the first performance BMX race bikes. Developing world class bikes in conjunction with the world’s best BMX rider such as Greg Hill, Eddie Fiola, Jamie Bestwick, Clive Gosling and Dave Mirra, GT grew into one of the biggest brands. With a BMX heritage and based in California the MTB scene was the perfect addition in the late 80’s . GT used the same model of developing performance bikes with the best riders, pioneering new suspension technology and the use of carbon fibre in MTB frames. Winning numerous World Championships in downhill and cross country racing with legendary riders such Nicholas Vouilloz, Steve Peat and more recently Atherton Racing, with Dan Gee and Rachel Atherton. Hans “No Way” Ray has been one of the figurehead of GT’s longstanding team rider program, setting the record for longest sponsorship deal of 26 years and counting. It hasn’t always been about dirt, in the mid 90’s GT took there carbon technology and build track bikes for the USA Olympic team, the bike was later banned for being too fast. GT latest crop of Enduroad Grade models play perfect testament to the brands heritage across, dirt, road and track.
