GT rolling out US mountain bike demo program

Fancy trying out a Sanction 1.0?

GT Bicycles is launching its mountain bike-focused demo program Thursday at the Sea Otter Classic in Monterey, California. The GT Bicycles Experience will visit bike shops and mountain bike festivals nationwide, providing an outlet for enthusiasts and shop employees to demo the latest GT bikes, and learn about the product technology.


“A great ride starts with the right bike, but it doesn’t end there,” said Jenni Schwai, GT’s director of marketing. “Whether you want a cup of freshly made coffee before a morning ride, a set of lights to borrow for a 24-hour race or a trainer to use for a pre-race warm-up — we’ve got you covered.”

Celebrating its 20th year of building mountain bikes, GT Bicycles will include several models with its race-proven technologies, such as its trademark Triple Triangle design and patented Independent Drivetrain (ID) suspension technology. GT introduced a pair of 6-inch, all-mountain bikes this year — the Sanction 1.0 and Force 1.0 – both of which are available to test through the GT Bicycles Experience demo program. The fleet also includes the lightweight 4-inch cross country Marathon Pro, the Zaskar hardtail and the women’s specific GTw Marathon 2.0.

The GT Bicycles Experience Demo Tour is available for shop visits. Interested dealers can contact Louis Angeley, GT Demo Manager, at
