Never before has a high-tech road bike been so capable on low-tech roads. The GT Grade Alloy Expert is ready for everything, from freshly-paved switchbacks to gravel roads and everything in between. Combining a superlight carbon frame with a vibration-hushing carbon fork and WTB Exposure tires provides a great ride that smooths rough roads, yet offers immediate response when you jam on the pedals. Shimano 105 runs the gearing department, offering a 2x11 speed setup with a wide enough range to handle serious gradients. For extra confidence, Shimano hydraulic disc brakes deliver tremendous stopping power integrated seamlessly with your road lever setup. Point it wherever you wish to go. The Grade knows no bounds.
