Guerrilla Gravity has launched its first limited edition mountain bike.

The American mountain bike company, best known for its domestic carbon-fibre frame assembly, will be offering only 25 units of its new Trail Pistol Race SL to market.

Built on the proven Trail Pistol 120mm platform, Guerrilla Gravity has applied a very desirable selection of components as the finishing kit.

The Trail Pistol Race SL is unlike many other Guerrilla Gravity bikes, with a singular pursuit of performance by virtue of lightness. Balancing the 120mm rear shock is a RockShox Sid Ultimate fork of similar travel and rounding out the bike’s suspension bits, is an 80mm Bike Yoke Divine dropper seatpost.

Steering geometry is leveraged by a Race Face Next 760mm wide composite handlebar, featuring 20mm of rise. At each corner of that Next handlebar are SRAM Level Ultimate brakes, which actuate Centerline X rotors, sized 180mm up front and 160mm at the rear – both held in place by titanium bolts.

Converting pedal input to wheel movement is SRAM’s XX1 Eagle 12-speed drivetrain, with the 32t crankset turning a 10-52t cassette.

Guerrilla Gravity’s desire with the Trail Pistol Race SL was to show the brand’s awareness of what down-country and gram-obsessed trail riding customers want. To that end, the Trail Pistol Race SL rolls an Industry Nine 280c Ultralight front wheel, built with only 24-spokes and rotating a Maxxis Rekon 29x2.4” tyre.At the rear Guerrilla Gravity’s product planners opted for a slightly more robust Industry Nine 280c Trail wheelset, featuring a stronger 32-spoke structure and seating a 2.25” version of the Rekon tyre. With the frame’s rear triangle having room for a tyre up to 2.6” wide, the Trail Pistol Race SL build should have excellent mud clearance for those winter rides.

With a claimed weight rating of only 26lb (11.7kg), the Trail Pistol Race SL is credibly light. Guerrilla Gravity is marketing this limited edition 120mm 29er at $7895.
