Take a detour from the roads more commonly traveled on board GT's Grade Carbon Ultegra. The svelte carbon frame begs for high-mileage days and memory-creating tales of epic adventure. Thanks to endurance-oriented geometry and tarmac-smoothing carbon construction, all-day comfort and stability are virtually guaranteed. Mavic Aksium Disc Specific Allroad Wheelset, and Clement Strada USH Tubeless tires provide a stable ride wherever the road takes you. When it's time to climb, or drop the hammer, Shimano's fast, smooth 11-speed Ultegra drivetrain is the tool you want for the job. And since the fun has to stop sometime, all-weather-capable Shimano hydraulic road discs make it easy to scrub speed. A Fizik Monte MG saddle, carbon FSA K-Force Light seatpost, and GT's own stem and handlebar ensure that the parts spec and your comfort stay at the same high level as the rest of the bike.

GT did a great job on this frame - it's light yet stiff in the right places and compliant in others. Ultegra grouppo worked flawlessly and the disc brakes were a saviour on long downhills and one emergency stop in a gravel corner. The Grade tracks well and rolls over most road obstacles. I really liked the neon yellow forks when my buddy rode it - I could instantly see him behind me :-) The frame is nice and open for carrying and the thru axle front was very solid.
