Rider driven and developed? That’s no exaggeration. Throughout 2006 we have been experimenting on our brave Gravity team with a variety of wheels. Their feedback has produced a wheelset with a big advantage: the insight of some of the very best pro riders. Gravity wheels feature a no nonsense hub with direct pull spokes, monster sized bearings for strength, and close spaced freehub steps for control. The rim is the right width, right weight, and the right strength
to get the job done.
Description & Materials
A broad, U-shaped rim (32mm wide X 21mm deep) in 6061, with eyelets, is cold worked after hooping for extra strength. 32 straight gauge direct pull spokes are tangentially laced for rigidity and long life. The front hub is 20mm through axle and three rear configurations are available (135mm QR, 135mm X 10mm through axle, and 150mm X 12mm through axle). The hubs are seriously overbuilt and feature ISO brake bosses.

What's the general opinion on the FSA Gravity wheelset 20mm front hub/12mm rear hub? Anyone here even have these? They came stock on my new ride, seem to take the hits pretty well wearing 2.35 Nevegals over the last couple of weeks, but don't hear much about them on here or elsewhere. I'll be the ... Read More »
