PRESS RELEASE: Guerrilla Gravity
Full carbon, with a little bit of anarchy.
The Trail Pistol is BACK for an encore and ready to fly through endless singletrack. This time - it’s fully Revved from front to rear.
Revved Carbon, our patented manufacturing technology, now makes up the entirety of the frame, increasing impact-resistance, reducing weight, and expanding the benefits of the environmentally-friendly material across the full bike.
The 29”, 120mm Trail Pistol frame starts at six pounds and features a slack 66 degree head angle, steep seat tube angle for ideal climbing stance, and short, 430mm Revved Carbon chainstay for a playful ride across a variety of landscapes and terrain.
The updated Trail Pistol is our first bike to be released in 2021, as well as the only model to feature an updated carbon rear triangle.
The Revved rear triangle R&D team in front of the rear triangle fusing machine.
Multiple technical hurdles had to be overcome to utilize Revved Carbon for the rear triangles, which includes new patent-pending methods. To maximize stiffness, the swingarm is fused as one fully singular piece with no bond joints, making it the most complex piece made with Revved Carbon to date.
Additional updates include:Full Revved Carbon rear triangle.
300 grams lighter and 50% stiffer that improves power transfer while climbing and cornering precision. Built on the Modular Frame Platform.
The updated Trail Pistol fits seamlessly
into our line of modular frames. External brake hose clip system:
You’ll no longer find zip ties directly on our frame. The new brake hose system “clips, twists, and inserts” to secure the hose. Internal swingarm cable routing.
Feed the derailleur cable into the front of the swingarm, and it exits at the other end. Molded rubber protector:
a newly designed protector with recessed fit gives riders additional clearance between the crank arm and protector, and prevents catching or edge peel. Pivot bushings, where they make sense:
To create an even stiffer rear triangle interface, the updated Trail Pistol seatstay/swingarm pivot switches from ball bearings to long proven IGUS bushings for lighter weight, better fit, and a longer service life. Off with the offset.
The rear wheel is now centered (zero dish) on the Revved
Carbon rear triangle. Permanently Plush.
GG Riders agree: Plush/Crush Mode is better achieved by switching Seatstay Kits, which is why the Trail Pistol has been optimized to be permanently plush with increased small bump compliance. Updated GG decals.
Immediately adds 250 watts. Who needs an e-bike now?
Front and rear Revved Carbon triangles.
The updated Trail Pistol is the next addition in the range of bikes on the Modular Frame Platform. Riders who purchase the updated Trail Pistol will be able to take advantage of the full range of alloy and Revved Carbon Seatstay Tuning Kits, which include The Smash, Gnarvana, Megatrail and Shred Dogg. Revved rear triangle upgrade kits are expected to be available for current GG riders later in 2021.
