I created Gravity Worx in 1989 when I machined my first carbon fiber lug molds for a mountain bike frame. Back then mountain bikes were rudimentary and made from steel. I was young and fit, and I raced everything I could ride. Over the last 30 years, as materials and equipment progressed, I also became older and much heavier. After designing and building the lightest frames, wheels, and components, for the last 30 years, I found myself 48 years old and 289 pounds. If I didn't make a major change, I was going to die from heart disease or some other major medical issue. The problem was, riding where I live requires significant climbing at high altitude, and I just wasn't up to it anymore. The only thing that was going to meaningfully get me back on the bike for real exercise was going to be an e-bike. I looked at what was available and I wasn't impressed. There were some great commuter bikes, but no real mountain bikes with a motor and battery. Nothing capable of the type of riding I do, big technical climbs with long descents. I needed a long travel full suspension e-bike with a super strong and light frame and the most capable components. I built the E160FS to be that bike. It allows me to do long rides, with my significantly lighter friends, over any terrain I choose. It will do the same thing for you.
We design and build ultra-strong & ultra-light carbon composite wheels and components
Gravity Worx carbon wheels are designed and built in-house to our exacting specifications. Featuring tubeless carbon rims with forged 18/8 SS spokes and locking alloy nipples, laced to our forged straight pull hubs.
Our rims are constructed using advanced composite materials and epoxies. They are stronger and lighter than competing rims. They are also tubeless without rim tape.
Our hubs use forged alloy bodies and axles, precision cartridge bearings, and freehub bodies for all common cassettes. They have splines for center lock disc as well as 6 bolt adapters.
We also manufacture our own carbon bars, stems, bottom brackets, axles, and other assorted components.
