GT Verb Elite 27.5 2018 Frame

The GT Verb Elite is built on a T6 Aluminium full suspension frame. This frame has a modern geometry with the perfect length to have the rear shocks in it. The geometry also allows for higher ground clearance and better stand over clearance as well. This makes sure the rider and bicycle is safe when pedaling over the roughest of trails.

The SR Suntour XCR32 front suspension fork comes with a 120mm travel. This massive travel worked smoothly and the manual suspension lockout helped making the fork rigid and hence accelerates faster on flatter surfaces. The GT All Terra air shock suspension with a rebound controller enables easy landing on downhill trails.

GT Verb Elite 27.5 2018 Design

The Verb Elite 27.5” 2018, which I test rode came in a full Neon Red frame with Blue and White as secondary colours for text and graphics. The curving bottom bracket gave ample space for the rear shocks component and also made sure the clearance at the bottom bracket is higher. The gloss finish paint job is of top-notch quality with a bright shine to it.

GT Verb Elite 27.5 2018 Gearing

This full suspension MTB is equipped with a 1x10 Shimano Deore drivetrain. Skipping the front derailleur has become the trend in high performance MTB’s and the reason for this is to lose the component weight, make gear shifting simpler and yet have a bigger cassette at the rear to fulfill both climbing and acceleration needs. The Rapid Fire Deore 10-Speed shifters were easy to use with quick spring action.

GT Verb Elite 27.5 2018 Brakes and Steering

The Shimano BR-M315 Hydraulic Disc brakes were powerful, reactive and balanced to use during the test ride. These brakes are ideal for fast downhill rides and the brake levers needed only 2-3 fingers to engage them.

The All-Terra MTB handlebar is 760mm wide and this made sure the rider was open chested and therefore has total control over the bicycle.

GT Verb Elite 27.5 2018 Wheels and Saddle

The GT Verb Elite rolls on a pair of 27.5” x 2.25” WTB Ranger Comp tires. These tires were heavily treaded with bulky buttons and were evenly spread. The 27.5” circumference made sure the tires rolled fast on the trail.

The All Terra MTB specific saddle was ergonomically designed to make sure the rider’s sit bones is perfectly placed on the widest points of the saddle.

This full suspension MTB follows the recent trend of a 1x front derailleur and the 10-Speed Shimano Deore rear derailleur was smooth in shifting. The front suspension fork with manual lockout and rear shocks with rebound adjuster made the trail comfortable. Priced at Rs.82,100(as on 16th February 2019) the GT Verb Elite (27.5) (2018) is ideal for anyone looking to buy a MTB for riding on rough trails and downhills.
