Full Review on the 2018 Gravity FSX Full Suspension Mountain Bike

Gravity bikes are unique mountain bikes that are meant for downhill, or better known as gravity, biking. This style of biking is down by being lifted up to a high point of a mountain and riding quickly to the bottom. 

Does this sound frightening to you? If so, that's because gravity biking is designed for adrenaline junkies. This doesn't mean you can't use this Gravity FSX mountain bike for casual rides throughout the park, or on the city streets. Let's talk about why this mountain bike stands out and is a great buy for all bicyclists! 

2018 Gravity FSX 1.0 Dual Full Suspension Mountain Bike

Chances are, if you're interested in this mountain bike, you enjoy living your life on the edge! The 2018 Gravity FSX full suspension mountain bike is built with an incredibly durable aluminum frame. 

There are disc brakes on the front and rear of the mountain bike. The built-in Shimano shifters are easy to use, even for beginners. There is adjustable suspension for the front and rear, so you can get the perfect suspension for every ride. 

Another great feature that this mountain bike has is really strong, yet light double wall rims. When you're going down the sides of mountains at fast speeds, you need rims that are as durable and strong as possible. 

Speaking of rims, both the front and rear wheels on the Gravity FSX mountain bike are quick release wheels. It is available in both black and yellow, and it comes in multiple sizes including 15 inches, 17 inches, 19 inches and 21 inches. 

The size of a mountain bike you choose is partially based on how tall you are. If you're 5'6 and under, the 15 inch version will be perfect for you. For the 17 inch model, you'll want to be 5'8 or below. The second to last size, 19 inches is made for people who are up to 6 feet tall and the 21 inch mountain bike is for people that are 6'1 or above. 

The frame is made out of hydroformed aluminum and there are 24 different speed options. The handlebar has an aluminum riser and the wheels are 26 inches. There is a triple alloy crankset and the brakes are Tektro Novela disc brakes.

A lot of people who have used this bike really enjoy the stopping power it has. If anything comes into your path, or you need to make a hard, sudden stop, this mountain bike will comply. There is plenty of room for things like a water bottle, head and tail lights and any other accessories you may need. 

What is great about this mountain bike is that it comes in so many sizes, so that just about anyone can find a model that works for them. If you have a family and are looking to get multiple bikes that work for everyone, this is a great option to try out. 

Longtravel Suntour Suspension Forks are a fan favorite as well, along with CantiBeam SinglePivot technology, which can be found in the large aluminum frame of the bike. There are plenty of safety features, such as the amazing brakes that keep you safe ride after ride.

This mountain bike is also incredibly easy to assemble and shouldn't take anymore than 20 minutes to half an hour. It's lightweight and is pretty portable, making it perfect to travel with. One of the things that makes this bike stand out from others is that you'll get a really smooth ride with it and it's much more difficult to feel obstacles when you hit them. 

One feature that may both some people, and that is good to know before purchasing is that this mountain bike doesn't come with a kickstand. You can purchase one separately, or do without one completely.  

This bike is well-known for how great it is constructed and that just about every component can be upgraded to your liking. If you're new to riding mountain bikes, this is a solid starter option. If you are more experienced and plan on taking this bike out on the trails, consider swapping out the stock tires for ones that are a little higher in quality first.
