We haven’t got full specs or availability yet but here’s some pics and guide prices of the top end stuff from GT.
The “I-Drive Marathon” isn’t listed in the prices or confirmed as a definite import but judging from the CrossMax wheels and SID WC carbon fork it’ll be a pricey ride. The I Drive Expert gets the same lightened short travel frame as the old Team and Race bikes but comes in at around £1700.
There have been undercover, long travel Freeride versions of I-Drive’s ever since they were launched. The New Ruckus looks a beast of a bike complete with long stroke coil shock and heavily reinforced frame built on the back of DH-I experience. Again price and delivery yet to be confirmed, although the hardtail Ruckus bikes are definitely coming in.
The Zaskar Expert marks the return of a classic do-it-all hardtail. Colours thankfully look a lot more subtle than its anodized heyday with what looks like a Duke and LX based spec for £999.99.
That’s all for now folks but we’ll be back with more info and hopefully test bikes as soon as we know more.
