Gradient
The Gradient line is FSA's hardest hitting product line to date, capable of Enduro World Series backcountry adventures, World Cup Downhill destruction, aggressive big mountain free riding, and of course an epic flat landing or ten…

Keegan Wright - FSA Gradient
Keegan Wright will be chasing the full World Cup DH season, as well as the full EWS, and Crankworx stops. After a big win at the Rotorua Pump Track, Keegan is in top form to compete with the world's best on any stage.

BB392EVO Gradient 7050 Crankset
Forged and CNC'd AL7050 crank arms are paired with direct-mount MegaTooth chainrings (double spider available). The Gradient modular crankset engages an innovative adjustable chainline for different hub and chainring configurations. FSA's BB392EVO spindle adapts to practically any frame. See Vernon's FSA Modular Crank Article.

FSA launches new modular cranks.
All FSA Modular MTB cranks can fit Boost (148mm) and standard (142mm) frame spacing by simply swapping the 3mm spacer (RED in diagram) to the inside or outside of the chainring using FSA's lock ring tool.

*Boost = 6mm wider hub spacing (3mm per side).

Trail Enduro DJ application. 800mm Wide bars with a choice of 25mm rise or 40mm rise with either a 45mm or 60mm stem length.
Gradient handle bars are available in both 25mm rise (800 and 760mm width), and 40mm rise (800mm width). Triple butted and tapered in 7050 alloy, with 9 degrees of back sweep and 6 degrees of upsweep keep this bar comfortable during aggressive riding.

Keegan was very excited to be the first FSA pro rider to bolt on the first Gradient production models.

Keegan at home on his new Demo. Because the Gradient cranks feature a modular spindle, a rider can run FSA's 73mm spindle for Trail Bikes or FSA's 83mm Spindle for DH Bikes. Bolt on a Gradient Direct Connect DH Stem and you've got burly product for any type of hard hitting DH action!

 Marzocchi is distributed by Wide open in NZ and hi is sponsored by Wide open, and i think his specialized sponsorship gives him a frame and shock, so maybe he ca ride whatever fork he wants?

 Unless something has been reworked on them I completely don't understand why pros use the DX pedals.... I ride way less and way less hard then these guys and I've went through three sets in three seasons....how shitty would it be if you end up with your pedel on your shoe instead of on the crank in the middle of a race run ...happened two times...not in a race run...
  • + 2
 The pros get stuff like that for free... As long as it lasts the race they don't care

 @piersgritten: I actually like the pd-m424 it is amazing I have had no problems with them and the resin cage doesn't interfere when it gets hit by rocks etc. The nicer version with the metal cage will bend into the clipless mechanism and you have to buy new pedals.

 That is odd, because I ride like 5x a week and have had the same set for ages and never done any maintenance on them!
  • + 3
 @eblackwell: Same...minus 5x a week part. I only have DXs on my DH bike, and typically shuttle 2 days a week, with bike park trips sprinkled in throughout the season. I've had my existing pair on for 3yrs or so...no issues and minor maintenance.

Have had 4 or so sets of DXs over the years and have been happy with all of them. My main riding buddy is the same.
