At the other end of the scale from the lightweight, power-measuring functions of the SRM/FSA crank, Full Speed Ahead has assembled a team of mountain bike freeriders to ride its burly new line of mountain bike components called Gravity. The unsurprisingly-named Team Gravity will comprise rider-manager Eric Porter, Randy Spangler, Ben Boyko, Evan Holmgren, Phil Sundbaum and Chris Van Dine.
The team made its debut in Renton, Washington at The Gathering, January 27-28, and will also compete at freeride contests such as Honda Monster Park, Sea Otter, Adidas Slopestyle and Crankworx.
The Gravity component line consists of seatposts, handlebars, stems, headsets and cranksets that FSA says are made from best materials on the market, built into products designed and engineered to hold up to whatever trauma riders can dish out.
