It's composed of carbon and features a frame built by Aldo Drudi, a renowned Thok designer. Thok believes Drudi's touch brings out the Italian flair of the bikes, while still offering uncompromising performance.
Thok has made certain that heavy-duty materials can survive the most rigorous use in the most inhospitable of terrain. They've also added extra strength with UD fibers to give the frame even more stability. The cables are concealed inside the carbon frame's cable sleeves to keep everything looking sharp.
Serious mountain bikers understand how important saddle and pedal placement are for an engaging and efficient ride.

Furthermore, the 64-degree steering angle makes it effortless to ride over obstacles such as rocks, roots, and ruts. Additionally, the low center of gravity of the bike, in conjunction with the newly designed TPS2 spring system, offers the required flexibility and traction on the rear tire.
On the performance front, Thok has outfitted the Gram with a closed Shimano system powered by an EP8 motor. The 630-Watt-hour inbuilt battery is readily detachable and can be charged and transported separately from the bike. Additionally, the Gram has two riding modes: long and fast, allowing the user to chose their preferred pedal assist depending on the terrain.
