GT 2017 BIKES
Fully revamped for model year 2017, the new line pays homage to GT’s deep roots in Freestyle BMX with throwback graphics and modernized parts. This collection showcases the brand’s commitment to the sport and highlights the diverse personalities of its Freestyle athletes.
GT Product Manager Ben Ward worked closely with the GT BMX Freestyle team including, Brian Kachinsky (BK), Rob Wise, and Jason Phelan, to design the new product line from the ground up. Ward gave new life to old favorites such as the 26” 1986 GT Performer and updated the Four Piece Bar, Low Profile LP-5 Tires, and Power Series Alloy and Cr-Mo Cranks.
“I’m excited to show the new line,” said Ward. “Working with the team has been fun, and finding a way to recognize GT’s heritage while still moving the brand forward has been a welcomed challenge.”
