It would have been quite akward for GT to miss the chance to show off Gee Atherton’s bike, so they seized the moment at Eurobike 2013. While the Brit’s Fury was on display, so was the regular version of the model, but you can guess which one got all the attention.
Atherton’s Fury, on its complete name GT Fury World Cup, features an aluminum frame fitted with a 200mm Fox suspension fork, of which 40mm represent the upper part’s travel, and a Fox DHX RC4 rear shock. The drivetrain consists of Shimano Saint components and also of a Shimano SMCD (Shimano Modular Chain Device) chain guide, just like the breaks that include 203mm rotors. Continental’s Mud King 2.4 inch tires complete this line-up.
Howevere, if you share the same status as us, of mere mortals, the Team and Expert versions ar as close as you’ll ever get to Atherton’s bike, with the top bike being the Team, specified with Shimano Zee and Saint components, Fox fork and rear shock, eThirteen chain guide and 203mm Zee brakes.
