GT Avalanche 1.0 [Upcycled]

grab pay later image

The Avalanche 1.0 is recognizably part of the long line of GT hardtails stretching back over more than 15 years – with its distinctive ‘triple triangle’ design. It’s been brought bang up to date, but can this classic design still cut it among the big boys?

There are two things that immediately strike you when you first climb aboard the Avalanche and start turning the pedals. For starters, the ride position is relatively compact. Riders used to the old-skool of arse skywards, flat-backed masochism that used to typify cross-country bikes may feel a little bit out of place here. Second, the fork works pretty well for a budget unit, soaking up bumps with an alacrity that belies its price.

Hardtail MTB anyone?
