GT Bicycles has today released the new Pantera GT-E and Force GT-E, part of the all-new GT Power Series lineup of electric pedal assist full suspension and hardtail bikes.
Both the Pantera GT-E and Force GT-E offer the same ride quality and performance as their analogue counterparts, the brand has said, but they have been designed around Shimano’s Steps drive system.
“The Pantera GT-E is a confidence-inspiring bike for riders of all abilities,” said a statement. “GT’s new Triple Triangle design with floating seatstays for all-day rideability. Because of its unique Triple Triangle design, the Pantera GT-E is 50% more vertically compliant than traditional double-diamond frames.
“The bike’s 120mm of front travel soaks up jarring bumps while smooth-rolling 29in wheels provide great traction on all types of terrain.
“The Force GT-E is designed for riders looking to push the limits of what they think is possible both up and down. It has 150mm of travel both front and rear aboard GT’s proven LTS suspension platform. 29in wheels equipped with wide aggressive tyres offer great traction anywhere.
“With longer chainstays, a steeper seat tube angle, and powerful four-piston brakes, the Force GT-E climbs fast and easy, but more importantly – allows you to descend more.
“The GT-E Pantera and the Force GT-E feature the Shimano Steps drive system which delivers the right amount of juice and power to amplify the ride.
“A powerful fully-integrated battery allows riders to go to 50 miles on a single charge while three power-assist modes – Eco, Normal, or High – offer a super balanced ride. Therefore, riders can get the most, and a little more, out of every pedal.”
The Pantera GT-E and Force GT-E lineups will be available in three and two models respectively. The Pantera GT-E range will include the Dash, the Current, and the Bolt. All models are equipped with rack and fender mounts for trekking and commuting.
The Force GT-E range will include the Current and the Amp. All Pantera GT-E and Force GT-E models are dropper post ready and feature internal cable routing.
