If you are looking for a bike that guarantees you the softness, the GT FORCE SPORT is perfect for you.
GT has always been a popular brand all over the world for its attractive bikes.
The first driving experience was good: the Force is light and aggressive also perfect for Gravity.
The size M is great for people high max 1.73 (top tube length 600 mm) but to me it looked very short: small is good for those who have a responsive and agile driving, but for those who are beginners recommend a L, feel more secure on technical steps.
The components of this model are entry level but I found a good set up.
The Force GT Sport is a good compromise for those who want to go up and down the hill thanks to the head angle of 66.7 degrees.
Uphill I had the feeling that the bike helped me a lot, as if it was riding alone.
Thanks to the GT A.O.S. system the Roch Shox Monarch R does not work in phase uphill, it allows a smaller loss of energy.
The height of the bottom bracket ok but I prefer shorter cranks.
The seatpost has disappointed me a little travel and not accurate.
Down the hill GT FORCE SPORT it is fun and it is very soft, although I would have preferred a 30mm stem, but do not forget that it is an all-mountain!
Overall I was satisfied of the GT Force Sport: you can try at the NOVO BIKE.
GT, as good as it gets.
Think a rugged, All-Mountain rig can’t be light enough to spend all day on the trails? Think again. With Force Optimized Carbon construction adding strength where you need it and a progressive geometry for perfect positioning and precision steering, the Force Carbon is the ideal combination of lightning fast and rugged durability.
