Go Big With The GT Electric Bike Range
Here at SkateHut we are pleased to further support electric transport combined with action sports and the latest range of e-bikes from GT are set to make the journey up the hill easier whilst turning up the aggression on the journey down.
GT have been building and selling bikes since 1972 playing a huge part in BMX’s heritage and then helping to forge the legacy in the mid 80’s. Today they are still committed to developing bikes that excel in both performance and serious fun.
GT have released a previous e-bike, 2019’s “Everb” which looks quite different from the latest range as the battery sat on top of the down tube but with the 2020 range GT’s EBikes are set to stamp their mark on the e-bike map.
First unveiled at the Roc D’Azur festival back in Oct 2019, people were excited by the new design of the 2020 range as the batteries are now integrated into the down tube which really cleans up the lines of the bike itself. That aside, The E Force comes in two models the Amp and the Current so let’s look at them both.
