2014’s Best: Racing Bikes XC, Enduro and DH

Downhill: GT Fury Team

The totally redesigned GT Fury downhill bike came blasting out the blocks at the beginning of the world cup downhill season with a string of event wins, resulting in Gee Atherton nearly taking the World Cup overall title and sister Rachel clinching the women’s. A good advert for the new Fury, which GT gave a complete overhaul to, and in doing so produced undoubtedly one of the fastest downhill bikes currently on the circuit.

With three models in the range, splash out and you can get the same bike that Gee races. We’ve picked the middle offering, the £4,699 Team. It packs top-end kit that is ready for the race circuit. The frame is made from 6061 alloy and uses a revamped version of the company Independent Drivetrain suspension platform to prise 220mm travel from the Fox DHX RC2 shock. A Fox 40 RC2 FIT fork is fitted up front and a Shimano Zee groupset will provide durability over the season, with a 36t chainring and e.13 chainguide.

You can’t go wrong with Shimano Zee brakes with 203mm rotors at both ends, mounted to an All Terra wheelset with Continental Der Kaiser Projekt 2.4in tyres. A 50mm direct-mount Race Face stem clamps a 785mm bar in place.

Price: £4,699
