Guerrilla Gravity has just updated their inaugural model, the GG/DH, to offer Park Mode and Race Mode.

Similar to the Megatrail’s Trail Mode and Gravity Mode, the dual modes allow riders to have a bike with two distinct personalities.

  • Park Mode is the shorter travel, lower BB, and more progressive mode. This mode is ideal for jump lines and riders who thrive on a more playful, poppy platform.

  • Race Mode is the longer travel, higher BB, and more linear mode. This mode is for smashing through rock gardens and riding the absolute steepest terrain you can find.

Other updates include:

  • Improved tire clearance now provides a very roomy 12 mm per side with a Maxxis 2.4 DH tire, more than double the EN required amount

  • Longer front-center to ensure continuity between their other bike models for given rider height

  • Ever important frame color choices--10 frame colors and 6 decal colors are available, allowing riders to build something unique to them

While some riders may overlook the GG/DH as a simple platform, it’s important to not correlate complexity and performance. Guerrilla Gravity uses their background in race car engineering to create a finely tuned suspension platform that eliminates unnecessary complication. This creates a bike that's made for goin' fast, yet is easy to maintain and built to last. Additionally, the enclosed rear triangle and massive pivot create an incredibly stiff interface, ready to rail more lines than John Belushi.

Frame weights are within a half pound of the lightest competition, regardless of material, but can withstand a tomahawk down the mountain when things don't go according to plan.

Plus, this is a pure American-made steed!
