    Summary

    Expirience with the GT SENSOR CARBON ELITE

    GT SENSOR CARBON ELITE Review Classic cable routing, no flip chip, no storage compartment in the down tube: the SENSOR CARBON ELITE deliberately does without any trendy bells and whistles. In doing so, GT pursues one goal: The SENSOR CARBON ELITE should be a simple, stress-free All Mountain for happy hours on the trail. With a 65 degree head tube angle and a reach that tends to be long you can certainly speak of a modern geometry. The balanced seating position is likely to suite the taste of the majority of bikers. On climbs, the GT Fully lets you sweat. Other bikes 3500 Euro climb better. One should not forget: the geometry is the heart of a mountain bike. For 3500 Euro, GT provides more than the competitors in the same price range. The guarantee of 25 years proves that GT is behind its products.
