GT Grade Carbon Expert
Engineered to take you further and faster, the Grade is more compliant, versatile, and adjustable than ever before.
More vertical compliance on both aluminum and carbon models than the previous generation of Grade for a more comfortable time in the saddle, no matter the terrain.
Flip Chip Fork
Race ready or long and steady
The Grade Expert is equipped with a flip chip fork to provide 15 mm of adjustability. This allows riders to go from 55 mm to 70 mm of fork offset. Run the 55 mm offset for gravel races or flip to the “low- trail” 70 mm offset when you’re loaded up with cargo on a bikepacking adventure.
DFD - Dual Fiber Dynamics
More control and less fatigue
The Grade’s seat stays are comprised of two lightweight fibers: a tough composite of carbon and fiberglass. The solid fiberglass core provides toughness and damping, and the carbon fiber outer layers act to control stiffness. In the end, you have a bike that gives the rider a lot more control and less fatigue on the ride.
Internal Di2 routing and dropper post compatible with stealth routing.
Removable Fender Bridge
Keep the skid marks on the trail.
Out of the box with native 160mm rotors front/rear on the Grade Carbon Expert. With a standard adapter, the Grade Carbon Expert can move up to 180mm rotors. This gives big braking power for when you're loaded down with lots of gear or charging into the rough.
Mounting Points Galore
All the frame and fork mounts for all the bags and bottles you need for a long tour. The Grade comes with top tube feed bag bosses and fork leg “anything cage” bosses. The alloy frame even has bottle bosses on the Seat Stays, that’s pretty unique!
All Grades are spec’d with 37c width tires, but can easily accommodate up to 42mm measured clearance.
