Rider-owned and privately-funded, Revel do what they want. Launched in 2019, Revel set out to build the absolute best full-suspension mountain bikes...ever!
With this goal in mind, they are the only company using the mostly unheard of, yet legendary CBF suspension design. Revel use incredible carbon layup technology developed by Jason Schiers, the original founder of Enve Composites. They obsess over all the details because they love riding good bikes even more than making them.
The Absolute Best
Who are Revel Bikes?
Owner, Adam Miller previously founded Borealis Bikes and Why Cycles, now combining his industry experience and passion with the engineering expertise of Jeremiah Starkey (former lead engineer at Rockshox and Trust Performance) and industrial design knowledge of Mike Giese. They worked with Chris Canfield who designed and patented Revel's truly magical suspension platform; CBF - Canfield Balance Formula. Read more about the team behind Revel here.
Canfield Balance Formula
CBF™ focuses on designing rear suspension around the Center of Curvature (CC). Until now, most suspension systems have focused solely on the instant center. CBF points the chainline and corresponding drive forces around the top of the chainring through 100-percent of the travel resulting in maximum pedaling efficiency, regardless of where you are in the travel, what terrain you are on or what kind of power you’re putting down. All the power you put into the pedals goes into turning the rear wheel, allowing the suspension to do its job completely independent of drivetrain and braking forces and making the sag setting much less critical.
When Revel first rode the largely-unknown CBF system, they knew it was something special, and they knew they could make the best riding carbon mountain bikes using this magical formula.

The Revel team created the Rail with two things in mind: maximum thrills and climbing hills. A tuned carbon layup makes railing through berms pure joy. The Rail will put an end to the traditional trail bike compromises to ascent efficiency to which you’ve grown accustomed. The Canfield Balance Formula (CBF) is the heart of every Revel bike, which maximises the amount you pedal in the sweet spot and keeps the suspension wildly active while descending and braking. The Rail is the ultimate 27.5" trail weapon.

The Rascal lives up to its name - it is a sleek looking machine that is mischievously fast, nimble, and adept. Think capability and playfulness in both ascend and full send mode. Revel's vision for the Rascal was to deliver a confidence-inspiring and ultra-versatile mountain bike in all applications. The Canfield Balance Formula is the heart of every Revel bike, which maximises the amount you pedal in the sweet spot. The Rascal is a fast and capable mountain bike in a sleek package that you can ride all day, every day, regardless of terrain.

Revel made this bike with one thing in mind; to enjoy the ups as much as the downs. We love the Rascal but we wanted something a little lighter and faster. So we took the legendary CBF platform somewhere it’d never been before…think XC light, XC efficiency, with the extra-high punch of that bottomless CBF feel. It is over a pound lighter than the Rascal frame and tough enough to inspire confidence on the descents. XC-trail? Downcountry? Welcome to the Ranger- a bike that takes modern XC suspension to a whole new level. It's right at home at the start line of a race, all day in the mountains or just rallying the local trails after work.
27.5" & 29"
Lighter, stronger, made in America and 100% recyclable. 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 toughened, high performance composite polymer that makes for a significantly more durable, lighter, and better riding wheel with a nice damped feel.
We've got your back. We carry spare bearings, frame hardware, axles and mech hangers. But don't forget to stock your own mech hanger so WHEN you eventually need it, you don't delay getting back on the trails.
