The extra support on the seat tube is almost a GT trademark. Otherwise, the four-link rear end of the eForce Current is simple in design.
Shimano has become the biggest component manufacturer for bicycles thanks to its gear, pedal and brake components. It's clear that the Japanese want to shape the E-Bike trend from this dominant market position. Even nasty steep sections are effortlessly climbed by the motor. The Shimano EP600 conveys a riding feeling. Fans of XXL tours are greatly restricted by the eForce Current , because of its low range.

At a glance

The most importanten ratings of the eForce Current in comparison to the competitor bikes of following categorie: (4000) .

In comparison, it's noticeable that the direct competition mounts better chassises, thus offering significantly more control. Shifting and components still leave room for improvement. Other providers dig deeper into their pockets for these assemblies. The handling of the bike is pleasantly balanced due to the moderate geometry. This allows you to intuitively control the bike over the trails. The low bottom bracket height will likely be a sticking point for trail riders, as it negatively affects handling. For the good geometry, the developer team of GT definitely deserves props. Such a knack for detail in geometry is rarely seen.

Conclusion


Expirience with the GT eForce Current

The eForce Current is a great climber. With a very good geometry, long tours in the on challenging trails are enjoyable. However, there is also a bitter pill to swallow with a weak groupset and a weak range. The generous warranty of 25 years proves that GT stands behind its products.
