Gravity is FSA’s label for DH/Freeride orientated products so the emphasis is clearly on big and burly. The range consists of such things as handlebars, stems, chainsets, headsets, chainguides, wheels and much more.
For 2010 Gravity releases the 777 bar, which has been specifically developed for DH bike setups with a tall front end, so offers just 5mm of rise. It’s double butted and tapered 7050 aluminium with a shot-peened and lightning grey anodised finish. Back sweep is 10 degrees, weight is 327g and the price tag is £79.95.
Sounds good, and there’s two new pairs of grips to go along with the new bar too. Both feature a miniature Gravity ‘G’ logo and you can choose from either a flanged version or lock-on with alloy rings and 3 colour options. The lock-on version costs £16.95and uses alloy lock-on rings and lightweight composite end caps for a weight of 145g a a pair. At £9.95 the standard grips are made from low durometer, super tacky rubber with grooves at either end for securing in place with zip ties or wire.
