Light, lively, and sure to leave a grin plastered across your face, GT's Helion Expert is the key to trail-riding bliss. The light GT aluminum frame soaks up trail obstacles with 110mm of plush, controllable front-end suspension powered by a RockShox Reba fork. Plus a Fox rear shock, while GT's XC-oriented geometry places heavy emphasis on speed, efficiency and agility. This capable machine rolls on WTB UST-tubeless wheels, quality Shimano SLX hubs, and grippy WTB 27.5-inch tires to keep you pinned in the corners. Meanwhile, the 2 x 10-speed Shimano Deore/XT drivetrain keeps things fast—with the precision shifting it takes to drop your buddies. Plus, the Shimano Deore hydraulic discs provide awesome speed control for setting personal bests on local descents. And, the rest of the Expert is dressed to the nines with Race Face's Ride bar, stem, and seatpost, and a choice WTB saddle.
