In June we will be heading over to the States to attend GT’s official product release of three new versions of existing bikes but today on their Instagram feed they dropped this sneek peek. It’s just a mule so I’m guessing the final product might look quite different, but that definitely looks like a new version of the iDrive? And would I be correct in guessing that those wheels are 650b?
From all the talk from the Atherton camp you’d also think that these new GT’s might be running slightly lower BB’s as well? We’ll just have to wait till June to find out! But I’m excited!
Kiran MacKinnon is a human dyno. When Santa Cruz Bicycles needs to test, experiment and validate suspension then Kiran is the one of the main people we call on to do that work. Not only is he an extremely talented bike rider and incredibly knowledgeable about suspension, but he can actually interpret and translate what he’s feeling in a way that he can communicate to the rest of the engineering team. This enables them to cross-reference the data they’ve collected with real life, on-trail experience to build better bikes and provide the right setup for our riders. We’re constantly refining our VPP™ suspension as well as the damping tunes shocks we spec on our bikes in order to make sure our bikes ride really, really good.
