Truvativ

When Truvativ joined SRAM in 2005, it gave them a whole new line of cranksets, bottom brackets, handlebars, stems, pedals, seatposts, and chain retention systems. A titan in their own right, Truvativ has brought some great composites and technologies to the field of mountain biking.

 

Building hard-headed structural components for the abuse of downhill and mountain biking, they also have a lighter side. The slick Hammer-schmidt overdrive crankset systems allow a gear ratio of 1:1.6.
