While we 'd normally leave the limericks and whatnot for the Irishmen, we couldn't keep back on our praise of the GT Fury Group's straight-ahead steamroller sensibilities. Inspect it out right here:
Whatever about this bike screams burly, from the double-welded T6 6061 hydroformed tubeset to the swingarm that would certainly make a motocross bike jealous. Housed in that robust swingarm is a 150 x 12 through-axle as well as Nukeproof's interchangeable dropout inserts that allow you to adjustchainstay length from 435 to 445 millimeters.
150-millimeter rear-end spacing, we were a little shocked to see 135-millimeter spacing. However, the Condition II still won the hearts of all our testers, cost be damned.
Previous Operators had a pinch bolt on the non-drive side alone, yet testing showed that twisting pressures were wearing on the axle. Including a pinch bolt to the drive-side too raises stiffness and stamina. The flagship design is spec 'd with Hope centers, which make sure to last at the very least as long as the bike.
The Casino player 10 comes shod with the Shimano Zee groupset, which executed so well it left us questioning the benefits of the more costly Saint team. The Scott additionally featured appropriately vast Funn bars, as well as testers discovered the Fox 40 to be an ideal fit for the bike.
Final Take: The Pulse and also roaches would be the only points intact after a nuclear war. A bomber, downhill speed up machine. The Nukeproof Pulse Pro resembles it was taken of a solid piece of aluminum. With such an imposing presence, it's a bike we aspired to swing a leg over, yet not so eager to raise onto the tailgate.
