GAS GAS TXT 80 RACING
The first step on the way to trial
Often the image of adults is reflected in youngsters, like with the new Gas Gas TXT 80 Racing. The new trial bike from Gas Gas is a small-scale re-creation of a full-sized champion. This machine has the same TXT genes that have written great chapters in the story of trial and now form part of the most recent addition, the smallest member of the Gas Gas family, the new TXT 80 Racing. This little bike has inherited the best from its older brothers and is adapted to trial’s promising young riders for tomorrow and keeps the competitive edge of the TXT initials that form its competitive nature.
Gas Gas launches the new TXT 80 Racing, the first natural step so the latest generation can develop all their talent and potential in the world of trial. The baby of the family has inherited the same frame as its bigger brothers. It has the same tubular moly-chrome steel frame that has already been tried and tested in the Gas Gas TXT models and so gives this little trial bike a quality and reliability beyond its segment.
The brand from Girona is proud to announce a new addition to the family. The smallest and most looked forward to, the new Gas Gas TXT 80 Racing had arrived with a size that is smaller and better adapted to promising future trial riders. A new arrival with traits marked by the TXT genes from part of a saga that has made trial history.
A small-scale reflection of the brilliant TXT saga
The similarities between them all are obvious. This is also true for the new TXT 80 Racing, a children’s bike that not only shares the frame as its big cylindered brothers but also its looks and decoration. It also has elements such as the exhaust and silencer of a bike that has adapted its size to the height and weight of the smallest rider, taking into account both comfort and ergonomics when ridden and taking command of the situation.
In this way, the new TXT 80 Racing has taken on board various changes, such as the incorporation of foot-pegs positioned further forward and slightly higher so children can have a better posture on the bike and reach the handlebar and the brake and clutch levers more easily, giving a better sense of safety and control.
These new characteristics are added to the adaptation of the swing-arm, which has been shortened together with the wheels that have been made smaller with 19” on the front and 17” on the back. This bike also takes the lower weight of its rider into account and so has new front forks and a rear monoshock specifically designed for this model allowing for the lower weight.
New engine together with a long list of new features
The smallest members of the family are traditionally those that are most looked after, and the new Gas Gas TXT 80 Racing is no exception. In the heart of the factory in Girona, the R+D department has been tasked with taking care of even the smallest details of the little Gas Gas trial bike.
The new TXT 80 Racing has anew engine in its 2018 version. A new engine based on the professional trial unit sharing the maximum number of components and presents its rider with a new piston, crank-shaft, primary drive sprocket and nut, Hidria magnetic flywheel, –with the possibility of adding an inertial flywheel-, Spal fan and DellOrtocarburettor in accordance tot the engine capacity. A long list of new features giving us an overview of the complete bike thanks to the endless quality details of the new Gas Gas TXT 80 Racing, a bike which has adapted its light touch gear change and its new exhaust outlet to the needs of the new engine. Likewise its secondary transmission has a fully covered half-inch chain to comply with the stringent FIM trial competition regulations.
Finally, it should be mentioned that riders of this new 2018 version can incorporate, if they wish, our optional lighting system. The new Gas Gas TXT 80 Racing arrives prepared with the electrical installation needed so the rider just has to connect the front and back light kits with easy to use connectors.

GAS GAS TRIAL SCHOOL 125
A trial bike for ‘hobby-riders’ looking for fun
Get started in the world of trial with the new Gas Gas Trial School, a bike with features good enough so you won’t miss out on any of the authentic Gas Gas spirit, but with a smoother, more easy-going riding style just right for entry level riders.Aimed at beginners as well as veteran riders who are looking for a bike that is going to give them the maximum amount of fun on an enjoyable day’s trial riding, without the high-end features of a competition bike. And all of this at a price that won’t break the bank.
Without losing that Gas Gas trial and off-road character, the new Trial School is adapted to a level less demanding than that of the professionals. This is for riders who are more interested in a leisure sports activity or riding as a hobby and are looking for pure fun in a day of trial. To do this we have simplified some components, such as the suspension, which are elements that are overlooked by riders who are not so expert in the question of adjustments and fine-tuning.
Gas Gas aims to satisfy the demand for fun from riders with this easy to ride and easy to maintain trial bike. A Gas Gas bike made with high quality components but without the corresponding increase in cost. A product adapted to the needs of an entry level rider, fans of a more relaxed, traditional style of trial looking for a bike to enjoy getting out and about on at a lower price.
And although it seems like a contradiction in terms, the new Gas Gas Trial School has come up with a magic formula for a bike that is both fun and relaxed without losing any of that authentic Gas Gas character.
How have we managed this? Firstly, with suspension adjustments and engine mapping pre-set for a mid-level rider and so avoiding the common pitfalls of attempting to adjust settings in the hands of the non-expert.
Secondly, by offering only one size of engine: a 125 cc two-stroke. An engine size that helps a rider get on well with the bike without unpleasant surprises for any riders regardless of ability.
And last but not least, an excellent geometry and balance with regard to mass distribution. Both the front forks as well as the rear suspension of this model are slightly heavier than the rest of the series allowing better handling and traction in the new Gas Gas Trial School on all sorts of terrain.
