FSA / Gravity had some shiny new parts on display under the lights of their booth at Interbike '08. We take a closer look at their Gravity Light wheels, Gravity Cranks, and brand new platform pedals! While we were there, Vittorio Brumotti busted out some sick moves on his trials bike for Mike - Check out the video inside!
Four videos and a load of info inside!Gravity pedals
First up we have the Gravity pedals. Featuring a low 16 mm body profile and turning on sealed bushings, the Gravity pedals look up to the job.
FSA Gravity had some very neatly done pedals on display in their booth this year that slot in with the rest of the Gravity line of parts. Sporting super-special bushings they are able to keep both the weight, and more importantly the height, to a minimum. Smart touches like rear accessed pins mean that you'll be able to easily replace them after those unavoidable pedal clips, and dual C-clips holding everything together create Gravity's reliable "parachute system".

Gravity Light wheels
The Gravity Light wheels are FSA Gravity's heavy duty trail bike or even light duty DH wheel offering. The tall rim profile combined with the industrial looking silver anodized finish makes them jump out from the crowd of black and blacker wheel sets out there.
The most notable feature of the Gravity Lights (and the heavier duty Gravity's) is FSA Gravity's use of straight pull spokes. Why you ask? I'd venture to guess that when a spoke does break it happens at the J-bend where it enters the hub flange. Take away the bend and you are left with a straight spoke and a stronger spoke.

The Gravity Lights come in a 20mm front axle and 135x10mm QR rear only.
Last but not least, we have the new Gravity cranks. Regardless of FSA Gravity dropping a load of weight off these babies they are still the "go to" crank set for senders and those looking for the top end in strength. New hollow forging is where the extra grams disappeared to!

A burly steel pedal insert will keep your flat's in place no matter how hard you hit them! Options include all three lengths of 175, 170, and shorty 165 mm versions, and dual w/ a guard or single ring setup. Something for everyone!
