Gary Turner established GT Bicycles in 1972 as a brand with a passion for designing race orientated BMX frames. Turner’s vision was simple, “build the fastest, most durable and innovative BMX bike available on the market”. The brand rapidly gained popularity and became recognised as the most successful BMX brand of the era following a number of major race and market victories around the world.
The next major milestone for the brand was the release of the ‘Triple Triangle’ frame design where the seatstays flow past the seattube and onto the frame’s toptube. This once innovative design continues to be a recognisable feature on a number of GT’s bikes.
Today, GT is still a mainstay of the BMX market, however the brand is equally as respected in the mountain bike world.
GT offers an extensive range of BMX bicycles. The brand offers two main ranges; a Freestyle range, focused on being lightweight, durable and highly adaptable to rider preference, as well as a Race range that is notably stiff, light and fast, ready for maximum performance at the highest level of racing.
With a profound emphasis on off-road models, GT has a huge range of mountain bikes spread across the full spectrum of the sport’s sub-disciplines. GT’s mountain range includes; Dual Suspension models that features women's and men's specific versions in the Gravity, Enduro, All Mountain, Trail and XC disciplines; as well as a Hardtail range that features specific options for XC and Trail disciplines, with women's specific versions available too.
The brand is not just set on the dirt, with a long history of pushing the boundaries on the track and road. Today, this range includes specific models for gravel grinding, light off-road cyclocross duties, Urban commuting, as well as Hybrid and flat-bar road fitness bikes. The pavement range also offers women's specific variants, allowing everyone to come along for the ride
To complete the family, GT offers a comprehensive range of boys and girls kid’s bikes in a range of sizes and styles, catering to all ages and ability levels.
