2009 Gravity products

We got a chance to check out some of Gravity’s 2009 products for next year. We’ve showcased a number of their other products (2008 wheelset, light stem and 800mm handlebar, light crankset).  Interested in seeing what they have to offer for 2009?  Inside we’ve got their Direct Connect Boxxer direct mount stem as well as revised Gravity crankset, some new grips, and DH stem.

A 22t/32t chainring set up is included with the crankset as well as a clear polycarbonate outer bash ring to keep them protected.  Should you choose to run these in a single ring configuration, similarly to their Gravity Light cranks, they feature a removable granny ring spacer to allow for better clearance with chainguides.

MSRP – $259.99

2009 Gravity Lock-On Grips

These new lock-on grips from Gravity feature a 140mm length.

They have Kraton rubber and alloy lock rings.  Once tightented down, the allen screws recess nicely into the lock rings.

The grips will be available in light grey, mustard yellow, and black and includes color matched hard rubber end plug. The black color has a harder durometer for durability while the others have a softer compound. The logo-ing on the grips is unique but could use some refined logo alignment for a more esthetic look.  The grips are a fair bit longer than typical mountain bike grips at 140mm and have some nice contour to them for added comfort.   If you’re looking for a longer lock-on grip, this is the answer.  

MSRP – $23.99
