GT Sensor Carbon Expert review

Tom Marvin

While climbing performance is improved, the rear end feels a touch wooden and it’s quite tall

  • Neat frame features show attention to detail

  • Happy on climbs, despite some burly kit

  • Calm feeling on big hits and deep compressions

  • Not the most inspiring ride

  • Mixed spec has some highs but some lows too

  • Rather rattly over rocks

GT Sensor Carbon Pro review - MBR

Alan Muldoon

The GT Sensor Carbon Pro is the top-end bike in 130mm-travel 29er Sensor range. And it bears more than a passing resemblance to the 150mm Force.

Flow Mountain Bike
2019 GT Force and Sensor - Bringing Back the LTS.

GT is a brand like no other, there’s good reason that a retro tragic like myself has more GT’s in the garage than any other brand. GT is over 40 years old and has pushed the development of mountain bikes so hard, and the result was some very whacky results and some very popular designs …

  • Simple, solid, fuss-free.

  • Force feels short in the reach, choose a larger size for racing.
