In an industry that's become increasingly hyper specialized, the GT Sensor Elite Complete Mountain Bike provides what may be the best single combination of components and frame geometry for riders of all levels and ambitions to traverse virtually all off road terrain. It's a refreshingly flexible machine that's ready for weekend riding, white knuckled heart rate explosions, and all cycling applications in between.
