The GT Distortion has had a little bit of a strange incubation. Originally made as a slopestyle bike for GT team riders Andrew Cho and Tyler MacCaul, there were no plans to bring it in to the UK, but at GT’s Press Camp in Les Deux Alpes last year it had such a good reception from the assembled journos that UK importer CSG changed it’s mind.
With 140mm at the front and 110mm of travel at the back via the Independent Drivetrain system, the Distortion offers some excellent spec for the money with a dropper post, Maxle thru axles front and rear and on paper the angles seem to make a lot of sense.
Jon’s been test riding this, the £2,250 GT Distortion 2.0, for a little while now and here, in video form, is his review. If you don’t like moving pictures then we’ll have a proper words’n’pics piece in the Reviews section of the site soon, don’t worry…
