Releasing alongside the Fury, and apart of GT’s gravity line is the 2011 Distortion, a full suspension mountain bike with 112mm of travel at the rear and 140mm up front. Some are referring the 2011 GT Distortion as a Sloprstyle bike, while others are calling it a XC.
The GT 2011 Distortion features a X.9 2×9 drivetrain, RP23 rear suspension, and Fox 32 Float FIT forks. You can expect the bike to weigh more than your usual FSR, but at 30.1 pounds, its not bad.
GT made sure the Distortion frame can withstand abuse, while using a tapered headtube and thru axle at the rear. For those interested in purchasing the 2011 GT Distortion, you have to live in the United States (or have a connection), and no plans on releasing in the UK.
