Alpinestars designed its Gravity Shorts to be tough enough to stand up to the toughest riding that you can throw at them. The byrly construction can handle serious diggers, and the ripstop back panel won't leave your ass in the wind while you ride lifts. The Gravity has a soft side, too. Strategically-placed mesh and stretch panels and vents keep you cool and won't limit your range of motion.
Strengths: Lightweight, fit true to size, thumb sweat wipe.
These are a good thin glove for summer riding. I really like having the soft fabric on the back of the thumb for a sweat wipe as I sweat a lot when it's hot out. The only downside to the thin gloves is the leather on the palms are already showing major signs of wear after 3 months of riding 1-2 times per week. I expect these to last through this summer and maybe for a little bit next year too. Will up date as they wear even though now I have another pair to rotate with for the rest of the riding season.
I have a Gravity Dropper Turbo.
As far as I know, its cable can be replaced with a standard shifting cable.
But what about the housing? Could I replace it with a standard shifting housing? Or do I need to use the specific Gravity Dropper housing?Read More »

I also have a gravity dropper seat post, which causes the biggest problem as i can no longer use my trusted seat bag... Woul ... Read More »
Sorry, couldn't resist a pun in the title.
I just got a Gravity Dropper Turbo LP. Haven't even installed it yet, just arrived. I knew ahead of time that I didn't really like the accordion-looking boot, and I thought a Lizard Skin might do the trick. I already bought a medium-girth Lizard Skin ... Read More »
I am looking to get back into riding again after a long time off, and am stuck with a bit of a budget as I need to buy the GF a bike as well.
Also, not sure how seriously I can get back into things, but still want a nice bike and will see if I get the upgrade bug like last time :D
