Guerrilla Gravity Is Going Carbon in 2019!!!

Here at Guerrilla Gravity, we dream big. Driven by our mission to “make mountain biking more awesome,” we’re always looking for better ways to do things. We've always stood true to our values of efficiently building tough, easy to work on, and fun to ride bikes. Our testing and personal ride preferences lent themselves to the qualities of steel and aluminum while keeping our eye on material advancements being adopted by the bike industry, notably carbon fiber.

While incremental advancements were made, carbon fiber still had many pitfalls like cost, durability, and environmental impact. So we got to thinking… how can we design and manufacture a mountain bike that blends the best qualities of aluminum and steel with the best qualities of carbon?

The requirements

This question led us on an arduous three-year journey, guided by three key requirements:

  1. Tough. After all, what good is a bike you’re afraid to shred on?
  2. Efficient. This sport is expensive enough as it is, and we don’t want to contribute to pricing riders out of badass bikes.
  3. Made in America. Because it matters.

 

These efforts culminated in the development of our proprietary Revved™ Carbon Technology. Revved combines the next generation of frame material and our new, patent-pending manufacturing process that is all made right here in the USA, exclusively by Guerrilla Gravity.

We never thought this was going to be easy. Building a production line from scratch without a rule book has been a monumental challenge filled with late nights, precise planning, and a lot of good-old-fashioned grit. 

In the amount of time it’s taken us to develop this material and manufacturing process, we could have contracted an overseas factory to cut molds, make prototypes, and build production-ready bikes in the traditional carbon fiber methods. But that’s not how we roll at Guerrilla Gravity. We found a better way to make bikes and got to work.

In a world where new model years only see nominal gains accompanied by rising costs, Revved will kick off a revolution of making mountain biking more awesome for more people. A world where carbon fiber performance isn’t a badge of exclusivity but a welcome invitation to every one of you that wants to ride harder. 

From everyone at the Guerrilla Gravity Team, we can’t wait to show you what’s possible with Revved Carbon Technology.
