GT replaces Giant as Whistler Mountain Bike Park’s official bike brand

400 GT Fury gravity bikes will be available to hire at the Whistler Mountain Bike Park in Canada when it opens on May 19th. GT Sanction’s will be available for XC rentals. The park’s previous bike brand was Giant, and before that it was Canadian brand Kona.

GT Bicycles is the official supplier of frames for all bikes including rental, retail and programs. Spank Industries is now the official bar, stem, and pedal supplier. E*thirteen becomes the official chainguide supplier.

Whistler Blackcomb’s VP of Business Development Rob McSkimming said:

"The opportunity to join forces with GT, a brand that has such deep roots in the mountain bike community, is an honour. GT’s reputation as a race and freeride-driven organization will bring new energy to the Bike Park allowing our guests to hit the trails on the best bikes possible. We are stoked to roll out this season’s line up which consists of the Fury as the DH sled and the Sanction as the All-Mountain/Enduro option."

The GT fleet is equipped with Spank’s Vibrocore bars, Spank stems, special edition seat posts, and Spike and Oozy platform pedals.
