FSA Gravity Wheelset

5/5 (2 Reviews)

Product Description

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.

Strengths:    Super strong, rebuildable hubs, direct pull spokes, made like a brick S#%t house

Weaknesses:    spokes loosen right out of the box

Bottom Line:   
Great set of wheels! would reccomend them to anyone who is hard on parts lie me. I am 180 lbs and have hucked big drops and bombed harsh rockgardens , the wheels can take it and them some. never a problem with coming out of true. just make sure you check the spokes every few rides they sometimes loosen up on you. do yourself a favor and buy these wheels if you want a wheelset that will stand up to whatever you throw at them.
