GT Grade Al Expert 2019 Gravel Bike Slate

Season : 2019

Brand : GT

Code : G11279M20

Weight : 0.24KG

The 2019 GT Grade Al Expert is an aluminium gravel/road bike with a slick but rugged design. Wide tyres, tubeless rims and hydraulic disc brakes make for a capable build.

Never before has a high-tech road bike been so capable on low-tech roads. The Grade is ready for everything, from freshly-paved switchbacks to the gravel roads, and everything in between. The Grade knows no bounds.

Wide tyres provide more grip whilst maintaining low rolling resistance and tubeless ready rims reduce the chance of getting a puncture.


This Bike Is Perfect For

The rider that wants to be just as fast on gravel paths than on the road with added stability and grip. The 2019 GT Grade Al Expert is the perfect bike for blasting down dirt tracks and handling tight switchbacks on freshly laid tarmac. The aluminium frame is lightweight and cost effective but if you are looking for ultimate performance the grade comes in carbon models too.

GT was founded in 1979 by Gary Turner and is still one of the big names in the cycling industry today. Many of the names in the GT mountain bike range have been around since the beginnings of the sport and older mountain bikers will know names like the Zaskar and Karakoram. GT Bicycles don't just trade off their heritage though, they continue to make cutting-edge bikes with regular updates to their range to reflect the latest trends in technology and the mountain bike scene. GT continues to impress with their trusted Aggressor and Avalanche models that are well suited to the beginner or intermediate rider alike.

With Pre-Order, you can purchase the latest items added to our store in advance of them arriving with us.

You Pre-Order is prioritised (at no additional charge); meaning that, as soon as the product arrives with us, we can wrap it straight back up and get it sent out to you - it often never even hits the stock room shelves!


With Pre-Launch, the date when we expect to receive the product ourselves is still a little too hazy to be confident in accepting Pre-Orders.

So, instead, you can submit your email address against the item you are interested in and we will email you as soon as stock arrives on the system.

Estimated Delivery Dates

Estimated Delivery Dates are given on Pre-Order and Pre-Launch products. They are for indication purposes only and can change at any time without notice.

The dates we provide are based on indications given by our suppliers. Whenever we get updated information from our suppliers we will endeavour to update the Estimated Delivery Dates provided on product pages.
