Over a pound lighter than last years aluminum version, the new GT Force Carbon features some striking and very unique lines. We took a closer look at GT's 6" travel 26lb flyer.
HD Video's Inside!This bike is one bike that will never blend in with the rest. It's like GT traveled to the future and brought the Force Carbon Pro as a souvenir of their travels. I have a feeling that riders are either going to love the look, or hate it. After seeing the bike in person I'd have to say that I'm a fan of it's unique stance. You'll have to make up your mind for yourself!

GT's Independent Drivetrain system has been fully proven over time and is a great all around design, perfect for this platform of bike. The finished weight is more than competitive, it's class leading for a bike with 6" of travel. It's slightly steeper than all-mountain geometry should suit the rider that leans more towards XC than aggressive AM riding.

The Force's appearance isn't exactly conventional by any means. Think of all those cool concept car designs that you see...Well the Force Carbon Pro is like one of those that actually made it through to production. Being familiar with how carbon performs I don't have a doubt in my mind that the Force Carbon Pro is ready for whatever you throw at it, and then some.
Loving the clear coat over carbon look
Tidy forward shock mount
The story up front? Flowing lines and an Integrated headset
Need even more carbon? Ritchey WCS bar
This long legged XC flier is GT's top of the line mountainbike and the price reflects that. Fortunately it's top end components are hung from a state of the art frame with a proven suspension platform. If your wife/girlfriend/mom would skin you alive if you came home with the Pro model, GT also has the Expert that retails for $1700 less but still sports dialed Fox suspension and the same carbon frame.
