Description

2017 GT Karakoram Elite Complete Mountain Bike

 

There’s no shortage of full-squish, over-engineered rigs on any given trail, but there’s something to be said about the clean simplicity of a hardtail like GT’s 2017 Karakoram Elite Complete Mountain Bike. 29in wheels, no suspension, and a lightweight alloy frame is about as pure a combination as mountain bikes get. Sure, the longer wheelbase, steep head tube, and big contact patch of wagon wheels can make dicing though techier terrain a little bit more difficult, but that’s more than made up for with roll-over-anything speed when you’re blazing across singletrack,

The Karakoram Elite is built up with components as straight-forward as the frame itself, with Shimano’s workhorse names scattered throughout the drivetrain and brakes, an FSA crankset, and Schwalbe Rapid Ron Tires. It’s capped off with a 100mm travel fork, which just enough to smooth out the bumps without sapping speed.
