Guerrilla Gravity is excited to announce the 2023 lineup. This year brings a slew of new changes to both the aesthetics, build kits, and buying options.
Between our U.S. based manufacturing, innovative Revved Carbon material, and modular minded design, we’ve always sought to bring contrast to the mountain bike industry. And now we’re bringing contrast to the trails too, with our bold new colorways. New Colorways
All of these colors are powder coated in-house alongside our standard Stealth color. Compared to traditional carbon, Revved Carbon allows for this more sustainable finishing method. Powder coat eliminates the smog forming VOCs emitted by the solvents in wet paint. Powder coating also provides a tough, scratch-resistant finish, which is just another way we build our bikes to last.Picante Red
Colorado Racing Green
Spicy moves deserve spicy looks, so we turned up the heat with Picante Red.
The classic color combo for goin’ fast.
Elevation crushing rides on endless singletrack, ride into the Alpine Blue sky.
In addition to colors, we refreshed our bikes with new decals and an updated headtube badge. These simplified decals let our progressive geometry and bold colors take the main stage while paying homage to our U.S. manufacturing process.
The updated headtube badge sports our “U.S. Built, Mountain Made” ethos.
New decals inspired by our engineering roots in auto racing.Updated Build Kits
For the bike nerds at heart, we’re introducing a new Frameset & Custom Build option. The updated builders allow you to select from our widest range of component options yet, including new Shimano drivetrain and brake options and full selection of suspension choices. In addition, you can select your seatpost height and stem length to fully dial in your ride.
Every colorway is available for any model with the new Frameset & Custom Build option.
For the riders looking for the fastest path to New Bike Day, we have simplified our standard Build Kit options. Our in-house team of riders did the heavy lifting for you and tested out a variety of components to hand select the best ones for each build and model. Now, all you have to do is choose your size, select your color, and send it. From there your bike build will be underway and ship in 1-2 weeks from our Colorado HQ.
Ride Builds with RockShox Select suspension and SRAM NX drivetrains start at $4595. Rally Builds (pictured here) with RockShox Ultimate / Fox Performance combo suspension and SRAM GX drivetrains start at $5895.
Race Builds (pictured here) with Fox Factory suspension, SRAM X01 drivetrains, and Bike Yoke dropper posts start at $6995.
Pedalhead builds start at $2995 and new for this year is a Frameset & Custom option starting at $2195.Expanded Dealer Network
This offseason, we partnered up with many new shops across North America. This expanded Dealer network gives you new ways to order and helps support your local bike shop. If you have a favorite shop you’d like to order from, just tell them you’re eyeing a GG and we’ll work with them to get your dream ride ordered.
From frame layup to assembly, all of our bikes are handbuilt here in Colorado. They are tested in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, which are some of the toughest proving grounds around. Head to RideGG.com
to learn more and build one for yourself. PS. You may have noticed that a couple of our best-selling models are missing. Don’t worry, they’ll be back. The updated Smash will be coming soon and the updated Trail Pistol is dropping this spring. Be the first to know about new product releases and more by signing up for our newsletter on our website.
Can't wait to go ride mine... and the good news is... I GOT MY CAST REMOVED TODAY HAHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA !!!!
Chill rides at first, lots of rehab on the wrist to do, when I feel it ready, I'll ramp up...So in couple days, GOURANGA hahahaha!! JK.
Bike season is just about to start for me, I'm pumped .
See you on the trails everyone !!
I'd rather take some deore than anything below GX.
"goods originate in North America if they are wholly North American"
I smell a good Pinkbike article. They should do the research for me
Many GG'ers have converted their bike to one or more of the other models. There's a healthy community of tinkerers on the GG FB group www.facebook.com/groups/guerrilla.gravity.mtbers along with a bunch of 'off-menu' configs.
Anyone know if that has been addressed in the past couple years? Would love to buy American manufacturing again.
Cracks were few but GG warrantied them AFAICT
Creaks in that area are almost always due to improper assembly (incorrect torque, improper seating, lack of grease, etc)
GG's revved main triangle has had very few issues overall. Grey powdercoat holds up really well too.
@nastynate711: Thanks. That's what I was hoping to hear. The experience he had referred to was from a few years back.
Riding a 155mm reach Kona currently. 165 is as far as I want to stretch.
Consistent failure points warrant a closer look to see if this is a larger issue. Not only was that not the route GG took, which is dissapointing, but they claimed that "you'd be hard pressed to find another carbon bike, in this class, as durable as the Trail Pistol".
The little Rocky Mountain Element with twice the miles and zero failures says otherwise.
They all have their plusses and minuses. 435-440 stays are perfect IMO. This is the handling sweet spot for me (450 stays are too long for my liking and "feel like skiing" is the best analogy I've heard)
Size 3 (large) 480 reach. 6'1".
Seat angles are all pretty good in these configs, at about 76-77 degrees.
Megatrail's high/low modes are different enough that you need a different spring rate to feel perfect. (this is why high/low flip chips that expect the same spring rate often are too similar and suck, IMO)
Megasmash is a better all-rounder than the Megatrail - better rollover from the 29er front. 64 HA is awesome in Trail 155 travel mode, slacker Gravity 165mm mode absolutely crushes at speed. I've never ridden a bike that naturally wanted to GO on twisty chunky downhills more than this setup does. Slightly raised BB vs stock MT is the recipe for chunky trails (stock Megatrail in low mode is slightly too low on really rocky pedaly tech)
The Megatrail MX is an incredible park bike config, or trophy truck mode if you run light damping. A bit much to pedal every day. Trail mode BB is too high for my liking.
Supersmash is the best climber of the 3 configs, nearly the same geo as the Megasmash, with less rear travel and better rollover with the rear 29er. Geo like a slackened Ripmo. Very capable, minimal seat buzz, and great for long rides. Though this config can do almost everything the Megasmash in Trail mode can, the Megasmash has the edge in the fun department.
Swapping stays and wheel takes 20-30 minutes if you have 2 cassettes, it can be a 2 beer job if you want it to be. Not something I'd do every ride or every week. But for park days swapping to and from configs is better on the wallet than having 2 dedicated bikes. And perfect for tinkerers with bike ADD.
However deleting comments is a bad look. Now I think he is right. Where as before I wasn't sure what he knew or thought he knew.
I was under the impression that their process still relied on expensive molds for each size, so their "machine" isn't really a factor in the choice to produce more sizes. I also think their overall modular approach to their product line is clever, and adjustable reach fits into that.
It's only cheaper to make molds in-house if they have the huge CNC machines required to make those molds. And it's only practical to keep those machines around if you can keep them busy by constantly producing parts and/or molds. If they don't have the machines, and they want to avoid having them made in China/Taiwan, they need to order from a local CNC vendor, and that's more expensive than Asia.
