Guerrilla Gravita has released a new version of its Gnarvana enduro bike.

The Colorado company’s star rider, Frenchman Yoann Barelli, created a build exactly to his requirements – and it is now part of the Guerrilla Gravity product portfolio.

The Rally Like Barelli Gnarvana is a heavy-duty build kit for conquering those steep and technical trails. If you regularly ride double black diamond trails, this bike is created to deal with that kind of terrain.

The Rally Like Barelli spec Gnarvana uses RockShox suspension, with a 170mm ZEB fork up front, supported by a Super Deluxe rear shock, managing the bike’s 160mm of frame travel.

As you would expect from a long-travel enduro 29er, the geometry numbers are radical, with a 63.6-degree head angle. Although the front triangle uses Guerrilla Gravity’s Revved carbon-fibre structure, this enduro bike still features an aluminum rear triangle.

A build kit for going big

Barelli selected the SRAM GX drivetrain for his signature build driven by Descendant cranks.

Rolling the Rally Like Barelli Gnarvana along are Industry Nine Enduro 305 wheels, which offer very rapid responses to any pedal input.

These wheels have an amazing 690 points of engagement, thanks to the 115T drive ring and six pawls. The result is an incredibly precise 0.52-degrees of engagement, which should give riders amazing control when management momentum with their pedal inputs, in technical terrain.

Barelli’s French heritage reflects in his tire choice for this new Gnarvana, with Hutchinson Griffus 29x2.5 inch rubber.

Guerrilla Gravity is offering gold foil decals and finishing touches, exclusively for the Rally Like Barelli build. The bike’s contact points include an SDG Into The Gnar saddle and PNW Loam grips, which sit at either end of a Range handlebar.

The Rally Like Barelli edition is priced at $5,995.
