Why "the Gravity Cartel?"
Sustainability is a product property, a lifestyle, a conviction, and above all a responsibility – not just in raw materials, but also in connection with the procurement and processing of those materials, and right through to The Gravity Cartel of the finished product to the global market.
As an example, iXS uses raw materials for apparel that are derived from recycled PET bottles. These are collected, cleaned, ground, processed and then melted down to be spun into yarn. This results in a top-quality polyester textile, saving up to 50 percent of the energy used in the production process and around 50 percent of CO2 emissions in comparison to using virgin Polyester.
The Gravity Cartel is proud to represent both iXS and SPANK with their sustainability initiatives along with Sales and Service in the US Market.
SERVICE IS EVERYTHING
Here's what one of our many happy customers had to say about The Gravity Cartel:
Big shout out to Victor and the folks at The Gravity Cartel! Met Victor at the recent Outerbike event in Moab, Utah. Wanted to purchase one of their excellent handlebars for my bike and a helmet while I was there. Due to the popularity of the items, Vic did not have my size helmet left and specific bar on site but asked me to get with him after I got back home to NY and he could get to his warehouse. I ended up buying a demo helmet which was a bit snug. Long story short - Vic was all over it after the event and I got my bars shipped, he exchanged my helmet for a size large and threw in an extra item as well.. This was service above and beyond what I was expecting and from being in the business for 30 years, unfortunately is lacking these days. I am now a fan of Gravity Cartel and would recommend their products/service to anyone!
