    2019 GT Sensor Carbon

    GT finally ditched the I-Drive platform in favor a more traditional trunion mounted - flip chip rear end! Prices have always been good on GT's and time will tell how these bikes hold up. Good move GT!

    According to GT, just about every suspension design was considered before heading down the LTS path. But in the end, their take on a modern Horst Link design was chosen for a few specific reasons. GT was very clear that they didnít set out to create the most pedal efficient bike ever Ė rather they wanted to make the most fun bike possible.

    Nice... the Sensor's numbers are spot on including the price! Anyone have any weight info on these? Might be a bit more than comparable with the aluminum rear triangles but other than that I can't really find fault with them! Would love to test ride one.

    Have FUN!

    I wonder why they still aren't doing carbon rear triangles. Does it cut $2K off the price so they can sell high end carbon bikes for $5K instead of $7K?

    30 lbs for the Carbon Pro seems about right. It could drop a lb or 2 with carbon hoops and maybe the crank. Under 30 is respectable and still puts this bike right up there with other similar trail bikes costing more! If its anything like older model carbon GT's is will hopefully feel lighter and still climb and descend with the best of em. Still need more real time feedback to know for sure....and bike demo's!

    It's got some damn heavy wheels and cranks.
    I'm probably going to buy the Sensor Carbon Expert for next year, and with lighter wheels, crank, cockpit and fork, it should be quite light on it's feet.
