They are manufacturing top-level biking machines with high performance in the world.

Frame: Gravity fsx 1.0 comes with a lower density advanced aluminum frame. The front triangle comes with hydro-formed tubes, and the rear suspension shock has advanced CantiBeam single pivot technology for bearing an oversized rider on difficult trails. So, this disc brakes aluminum frame can take the rider’s weight and gear without breaking. 

Suspension: Gravity fsx 1.0 bike comes with adjustable suspension. It includes preloads suspension components. It features a Suntour XCT Long Travel 80-100mm front fork, and KS CoilOver 85mm travel rear suspension attached to the down tube. But there is no lockout shock in the front or rear but has an adjustable front shock. The Suntour shocks (front fork) features a standard 1-1/8 threadless headset. 

Brake: Gravity fsx 1.0 bike comes with Tektro Novela disc brakes with 160mm rotors. This braking system has excellent stopping power, just a slight pull of the brake levers. And the rotors help you to control your gravity mtb bike in any type of weather and any tough mountain trail.

Gear System:  The gear system is totally surrounded by Shimano parts. It includes high-performing Shimano FD-M190 Front derailleurs and Shimano Acera at rear derailleur. It also features a replaceable rear derailleur hanger and well-crafted welding points.

Shimano Shifters: Derailers are the muscle, but the shifter is the brain. This gravity fsx 1.0 bike has finger-operated SHIMANO ST-EF51 24 SPD, EZ Fire Trigger shifters for smooth gear shifting immediately on rough terrain. 

Cassette: Gravity fsx 1.0 is also equipped with SHIMANO MegaRange 11-42 teeth cassette ( 8speed), which offers you 24 total gears and complete control over them. 

Crankset: Gravity fsx 1.0 crankset comes from the renowned SunTour, the Powershift Rings 22/32/42 with aluminum arms.

Bike weight: This 24 speed gravity fsx mountain bike weighs around 26 or 27 lbs which may seem not very lightweight, but I think it has done quite well with an aluminum frame and dual suspension,

Stem: With a stem measuring 1.125 inches (2.8 centimeters), this mtb bike offers pretty snappy handling that definitely deserves your appreciation during many unexpected turns in rough trails.

Handlebar: Gravity fsx 1.0 handlebar is constructed with durable 20-degree rise aluminum.  This handlebar (1-inch diameter) is nearly flat and not adjustable ( height) due to having a fixed stem.  

Gripper: Gravity 1.0 dua suspension mountain bike is equipped with Kraton Black Stock Tapes that are not really durable. After a few rides, they fail to provide enough grip and break down pretty quickly.

Wheels: Gravity fsx features 26 inch double wall rims wheel size. For a better riding experience, gravity has used quick-release wheels instead of flat tires. This means you can now remove the wheel anytime you want without using any tool, just using your hand.

Tires: Gravity 1.0 comes with 26×2.1 inch tires, but it can also handle tires up to 2.75 widths. And if you want, you can put a narrower tire to 1.75-inch width. Gravity mountain bike tire offers you a better ride on asphalt as well.

Assembling:  Gravity fsx bicycles have quick release wheels that allow easy assembling and transit. You can change this gravity dua suspension mountain bike wheels anywhere at any time without taking help from an expert.

Is the Gravity fsx bike worth the price?

“A good rule of thumb is to invest in a quality bike that will last for years and offer you great performance.” If you follow this rule, Gravity fsx 1.0 Bike may be a good investment for you.

Getting a gravity fsx 1.0 mountain bike under $500 is above my understanding. I am still thinking about how they are offering this type of bike at this price after using such high-quality components. It is super lightweight, has an aluminum frame, dual suspension, Tekro Novela mechanical disc brake, Suntour fork, Shimano derailleurs, 24-speed gear, and so on. So avoid making the mistake of thinking Gravity fsx 1.0 isn’t exciting; it is definitely worth its price.

Please Keep In Mind

The bike has been designed as an entry-level mountain bike for beginners or intermediates riders. So, don’t expect performance like a hardcore $1000 mountain bike. It’s not a perfect fit for a professional rider.

I would not say this Gravity 1.0 mountain bike is really great buy, but if you are looking for cheaper bikes and vice versa practical, you should definitely try out gravity FSX 1.0.
This bike is a durable aluminum mountain bike with many advanced features. It has high-end components, adjustable rear coil, 24-speed gearbox, and geometry to ensure it delivers the high mountain biking performance and control you need on the trail.
