Using our tried and tested asymmetric design we have equalised spoke tensions and built a package that dominates descents, whilst cutting down on bulk where it isn’t needed.
To compensate for the differences in wall length and strength of an asymmetric design, the wall thicknesses have been proportioned to balance out impact forces equally. The Gravitas offers offset wheel benefits, without compromise.
Medium of Construction
Using our updated 6061 T-10 heat treated Aluminium alloy, the Gravitas is built from a material that has an incredibly high tolerance for impact forces, offers light weights and is more sustainable than Carbon Fibre counterparts.
With a honed 27.5mm internal width, Gravitas wheels offer tyres large sidewall support, while remaining narrow enough to avoid unnecessary rock collisions. This is the Goldilocks of downhill rim widths.
The Centre of the Gravitas
At the core of our Gravitas wheels are our new and improved instantaneous 120 point pick up MT and MTC hub ranges, with sealed bearings, timeless Halo appearance and super wide spaced flanges for increased stiffness and durability.
The options we can offer using our MT and MTC series hub ranges will fit virtually any modern mountain bike, from quick release through to Super-Boost. We also offer Shimano HG, Micro-Spline and SRAM XD freehub fitment. Additional Boost adaptor kits, Torque Cap Adaptors and 6-bolt adaptors are available separately and offer further tunability.
A Drive System to Rely On
With our latest versions of the MT and MTC Supadrive hubs we have increased stiffness and reduced flex with a heat treated, hollow Cro-Mo Steel axle for maximum power transfer and reliability.
Utilising a wedge pawl mechanism the Supadrive system withstands incredible torque loads. Featuring 12 micro teeth per pawl, drive is transferred efficiently through a dramatically increased surface area into the 120 point drive ring. In addition, the latest MT series HG freehubs now feature a precision machined Cro-Mo steel construction. This prevents the dreaded ‘cassette bite’ and also allows use of larger internal bearings for increased durability.
Make it Yours
Out of the box the Gravitas comes in our unmistakable Stealth, double anodised finish. With six coloured sticker packs available separately the Gravitas is customisable to suit your style.
