Guerrilla Gravity has entrenched its reputation as a disruptor in the mountain bike market.

The Coloradoan company, which is proud of its American engineering and manufacturing roots, has a slew of detail upgrades for 2020 and improved production facilities to service greater customer demand.

Using an innovative modular manufacturing process, Guerrilla Gravity produces the same front triangle for all four of its bike models. To enact the differences in wheel size and travel between these four bike ranges, it bolts-on an assortment of appropriately shaped aluminium rear-ends.

For 2020 the bike line-up tallies a dedicated 29er enduro bike, with 145mm of rear-travel, called the Smash. Riders who require more pedalling efficiency and less travel, can opt for the 120mm Pistol.

Those who prefer the agility of 27.5-inch wheels have an option on the Megatrail, which has adjustable rear travel of between 155mm and 165mm. If you want 27.5-inch wheels and even more trail feedback, there is also the Shreddogg, with a rear travel range of 130-140mm.

Allowing for rear shock travel adjustment on the Megatrail and Shreddogg models, are two shock-mount eyelets on the seat stay/rocker linkage. By removing the bolt and changing the shock-mounting position, the bike’s overall rear travel is changed. It is a clever feature and very simple to do, requiring no propriety tooling.

Guerrilla Gravity also continues to champion its seat stay adjustment feature on the 29er bikes too, where changing the shock position between the two eyelets allows for lengthening or shortening of the wheelbase by 10mm. There is also a corresponding slackening or steepening of the headtube angle as a result.

Some of the industrial design refinements which apply to all four bike models in the Guerrilla Gravity product portfolio include integrated chainstays and downtube proctors. These protectors are moulded with recessed pockets within their structure, to allow for superior impact energy dispersion if you do suffer a rock or terrain debris strike whilst riding.

Guerrilla Gravity framesets start at $2200 and complete bikes at $3800. With the ability to craft their own carbon front triangles, Guerrilla Gravity can deliver progressive geometry trail and enduro bikes, with a composite and aluminium flavour, at keen prices.
