Competition: Win a carbon GT Zaskar frame signed by Hans Rey!

by 3

What if we told you that you could win your very own once-in-a-lifetime prize of a GT Zaskar Carbon frameset worth £1800? What if you could win it without ever having to get off your sofa? And that it was also FREE to enter this competition? Well wonder no more, because this competition is as real as the Switzerland Squeaker!

Late last year, you may recall that we were joined by Hans Rey when he came to visit Singletrack just before Christmas. Hans went riding on the local Calderdale trails with Chipps (it was for ‘work’ apparently), and he also helped us out with our Advent Calendar. Aside from bringing along his personal GT Force, Hans also brought a limited edition 25th Anniversary GT Zaskar Carbon frame, which he very kindly signed for one very luck Singletrack reader. Could that be you? Read on for how you can enter into the compeition!

What you’re looking at here is one of 100 carbon Zaskar frames in the world. And one of very few that have been personally signed by the OG, Hans Rey.

But first, dat bike. The new Zaskar Carbon was first unveiled at last year’s PressCamp, where Chipps was on hand to get all the juicy details. Celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Zaskar, the latest version is undoubtedly GT’s most versatile to date. And given that the Zaskar is the only bike in history to have won World Championships in XC, Downhill, Slalom & Trials disciplines, that’s certainly saying something!

Now built from high-tech carbon fibre, the new Zaskar is equipped for 27.5in wheels to retain the snappy and fun handling of old, while eking in a little more traction and compliance. You can fit up to a 120mm travel fork up front, and geometry leans on the progressive side with slacker angles and longer top tube lengths that are better suited to wide bars and short stems. There’s a stiff press-fit bottom bracket, and rear dropouts are configured for a 142x12mm thru-axle. Oh, and it comes in a mean raw carbon finish with chrome decals too.

Signed by the OG himself! But the most important question is: Would you build it up and ride it? Or is this more of a wall-piece collectable?

The Zaskar Carbon is available in a variety of different build options, but it is not available as a standalone frame. Except for this one. GT has only produced 100 Zaskar Carbon frames worldwide, and we have one medium sized frame that has #29 written on it. The frame comes with a seatpost binder, a rear thru-axle and a derailleur hanger. If it were for sale, it would retail for £1800. Oh and don’t ask for a different size, ‘cos we don’t have any. But if you’re not the average height of a homosapien at 1.7m tall, you could always consider shin transplants. Or you could be the nicest person in the world and gift it to a riding buddy. Or you could even mount this gorgeous limited edition frameset to your pool room wall. The possibilities are endless!
