WHAT IS IT MADE FROM?
you understand by now, the Fury has a monocoque carbon fiber frame that GT
claims is ten times stronger than its aluminum opposite numbers, with forged
and machined aluminum fitments.
“I don’t take a look at carbon the similar way I did before we began this
project,” says GT’s Robert Stemen. “We’ve proven its use in this
application, and it has exceeded our strength tests by huge margins.”
The brand new Independent Drive suspension assembly includes a new link and pivot design for 8.3 inches of rear wheel trip and utilizes the RockShox Maxle rear quick-release thru-axle. The Fury uses a 1.5-inch diameter head tube and an internal FSA Orbitz headset.
The Fury’s downtube employs what GT calls their “Rockblock,” which means an outdoor layer of Kevlar is the last strip put at the frame’s mold to lend a hand defend against trail debris shot from the front wheel into frame’s downtube.
HOW DOES IT PERFORM?
Ergonomics: Now and again, the wrecking crew runs across test bikes that
we all know have spot-on geometry simply by taking a look at them. The Fury is one
of the ones bikes. The 65-degree head angle is sufficient for technical
descending, and the 28-inch best tube is very low for a
downhill bike. The 29.5-inch-wide Funn handlebar is a welcome web page within the cockpit.
Pedaling: The Fury is certainly one of
the strongest pedaling downhill bikes we’ve ridden. The Independent
Drive suspension and RockShox Vivid 5.1 shock work together to propel
the Fury rider forward with each and every crank rotation. Unlike with many
long-trip designs, little or no energy is wasted when sprinting in this
The supple rear suspension combined with the rigidity of the RockShox
Boxxer front end means the Fury holds its line on rugged, off-camber
The ultra-wide Funn Fatboy handlebar gives the rider massive amounts
of leverage when looking to hold a line and greatly is helping decelerate
steering and beef up stability when changing directions over gnarly
rocks and roots.
