Lighter, stronger, made in America and 100% recyclable. The new Revel Wheels just flipped the script. The same bike nerds who brought you Revel Bikes are proud to present Revel Wheels. These rims are made from the brand new Fusion-FiberTM technology developed and manufactured in an aerospace facility in southern Utah. There’s no environmentally harmful or brittle epoxy in this carbon- it is a highly engineered, high performance composite polymer that makes for a significantly more durable, lighter, and better riding wheel with a nice damped feel.
“Both the Revel Rascal and Rail benefit from the Canfield Balance Formula suspension which does an incredible job at seamlessly transitioning from an efficient pedaler to a plush ripper. This was immediately apparent any time the trail pointed downwards, as the Rail offered impressive control through technical sections.”
“But the Rail is surprisingly nimble on climbs anyway. It fits well in the trend of long travel bikes that have found footing on climbs thanks in large part to anti-squat capabilities in rear suspension design. The CBF suspension here limits bob under heavy pedaling loads, so you won’t get too bogged down on the way up.”
“Packing big hit performance in a relatively small package, the Rascal isn’t an ultra light trail bike. But if you like to take your time on the climbs, blitz the descents, and want something smaller than a full blown enduro bike that still offers big bike confidence, the Rascal is absolutely worth a look.”
