Looking to dip a toe into the off-road realm, but not ready to dive with an all-in mountain bike? The GT Laguna is a great way to confidently wander farther from the paved path. The aluminum frame features a low top tube for easy on and off, an 80mm suspension fork to soak up rocks and roots, and 21 hill-climbing gears to make easy pedaling out of steep gravel roads and trails. Its linear pull brakes are powerful and keep the weight low, while the 26-inch all-terrain GT tires provide traction and stability across a variety of surfaces. Once you go off-pavement, there's no telling where you'll decide to ride.
