Gary Fisher Superfly Elite 2011 Mountain Bike

The Gary Fisher Superfly Elite lives up to its name with professional grade components, a carbon frame and a set up that is ready for the racing circuit. It is a hardtail mountain bike with a front fork that affords 100mm of travel, hydraulic disc brakes and an integrated fork sag meter, allowing serious riders to keep in total control over any surface. Speed is a key asset of this bike, which is why using feather-light carbon in many of the components complements the construction of the frame itself. It is priced well out of reach of casual riders but remains competitive with rivals from other manufacturers at this section of the market.

Gary Fisher Superfly Elite 2011 Overview

Gary Fisher has won critical acclaim for the carbon frame of this particular model range and it is clear to see why, once you have sat astride the Superfly Elite and been able to appreciate its race ready geometry and sheer lightness. Carbon is key to the frame but is also used to construct the handlebars to provide consistency and strength. The Fox F29 RLC fork has customised geometry and 100mm of travel to provide impact absorbing capabilities without compromising the handling or accelerating ability of this bike. If you want professional levels of quality then this is one of the few bikes on the market that can provide it.

The Gary Fisher Superfly Elite is not the best looking mountain bike available, but with a combination of black, white and blue on its frame and components, it is not overly bland or unattractive. The carbon construction of the frame means that the whole bike looks like it has been seamlessly forged and is a real benefit when it comes to providing overall strength. If you are in the market for a high-end hardtail mountain bike, this is well worth considering.
