Trico Sports Performance has one of the most comfortable mountain bike shorts called Kroozer. Designed with excellent cycling comfort in mind, these shorts can tackle the severity of mountain biking or any strenuous activities outdoors.

What makes the Kroozer Mountain Bike Shorts incredibly comfortable is its combination of the ability of a road short to avoid chafing and the style and loose fit of a mountain bike short. Also combined are the optimized seat comfort and shock-absorption to create the most comfortable mountain bike short on the trail.

Key to the ultimate comfort of the Kroozer is the unique anatomical Memoflex Gel pad sewed into a highly breathable road-style inner brief. Thickness, shape, and durometer are strategically adjusted making the gel very stable. The brief is then surrounded with a baggy MTB-style shell.

Included in the 2012 GT mountain bike lineup is the Performer. Beautifully designed, this bike is a kind of a cruiser BMX/single-speed mountain bike with a retro style. Its traditional high-tensile steel frame tubes and cromo fork are meant to bring the riders decades back.

By mixing into the back end some high-tensile steel, the bike puts some more economy to the package while still keeping all the style. Other features include two sets of oversized pegs, stamped tube caps, and a standard three-piece crank without the alloy chain wheel.

With its nostalgic retro touch, the 2012 GT Performer Mountain Bike is definitely a hot machine. On the other hand, while the retro style works for most riders, the plain seat pillar with a separate clamp may not be a thing of beauty for everyone.

GT will offer an alloy version of its Fury Carbon downhill bike for 2012. With the aim to bring more people into gravity riding and racing, GT has created The Fury as a performance driven bike and that applies to both the carbon and alloy models.

The geometry and suspension design of the Fury carbon and alloy bikes are exactly the same. Starting the Ruckus 7 frame, the allow model adopts the carbon geometry and 210mm of suspension travel. The gussets of the proprietary 6000-series monocoque alloy front end are larger than that of a freeride bike.

Adjustable rebound is offered Marzocchi’s basic 888 and Rocco R fork and damper while braking is handled by Avid’s Elixir 3s with 200mm rotors. Aside from its alloy frame, new cold forged pivot block assembly, and lower price, the 2012 GT Fury Alloy is just a duplicate of the original carbon model.
