Bigger than the Zaskar, smaller than the Sensor and Force, here is the new GT Helion – a new XC / Trail bike imagined by GT bicycles.
With the Helion, GT wants to wake up a market sector that many brands have forgotten with the trend and global love for mid /top travel suspension. The Helion will have the responsability to provide evidences about the potentiel of fun & joyride that a XC of 110mn can bring on trails. The video here is a first step:
The rear suspension uses the technology ASO launched last year and replacing the i drive system. The Helion with its 650B wheels gets the same DNA as the Sensor and Force. It remains to know if the frame will be proposed both in alloy and carbon. GT usually does this to offer a large choice and prices for everybody.
A dedicated webpage is online – June 18 will be the reveal of the range with the complete bikes imagined by the american winged brand
