Gas Gas EC / XC, ‘The Phoenix project’, total renewal of the brand in enduro

08/11/2016
Gas Gas has completely reinvented its enduro, a bike with a new central backbone frame, revised geometry, new engine and an endless list of new components. Built with a huge commitment to the quality of all the parts when taken together as a whole. The Gas Gas Phoenix, an enduro bike born to internationally relaunches the brand in the most mechanically demanding speciality.
Classical mythology recounts that after being consumed by fire, the Phoenix was reborn from its own ashes, becoming a dazzling bird of fire with golden and red wings, a symbol of strength, endurance and resurrection... The same metaphor of renewal from which the new Gas Gas EC/XC takes its name, a model that embodies the relaunch of a brand with more than three decades of tradition in off-road and high level competition. A brand which takes the best from the past to challenge the present with the power needed to reinvent itself with a completely new enduro bike.

We are proud to present the Gas Gas EC/XC, the symbol of the renewal of the brand in enduro, uniting in one machine the concepts of maximum reliability, great specs and the highest level of confidence. Innovative from its very conception with a central backbone frame, a structural element in combination with new geometry and top quality KAYABA suspension, giving the new Gas Gas weapon lightness and sensitivity in riding. Conceived and designed for easy, quick mechanical accessibility, suitable for riders of all levels right across the broad spectrum in the world of enduro, both professional and amateur, thanks to its versatility, power and ease of riding. New geometry for a bike with a visibly lighter and narrower shape, only 105 kg, with a greater turn angle.

A quality enduro where the sum of its components, trusting only the very best brands, achieves excellence as a whole, with an almost endless list of new additions. The Gas Gas EC/XC also sports a new, powerful engine: manufactured in two capacities (250 / 300cc), with high performance offering even more features and flexibility than its two-stroke predecessors.

Sometimes it is necessary to finish an era, to be reborn and grow stronger and wiser, in a new improved version of ourselves, just like the new Gas Gas EX/XC, ‘Project Phoenix’, a complete renovation of the brand in enduro.
