The answer is yes, Revel Bikes just released their new gravel bike, the Revel Rover and we are stoked! While you might not think of Worldwide Cyclery as a dominant gravel shop, we love riding gravel bikes and often sell the bikes that we ride. Revel has been able to make a gravel bike that is not only capable and has great tire clearance, but also has a simple and clean look to it. The Revel Rover has clearance for 50c tires front and rear, is capable of running up to a 46t front chainring, and even rocks a custom fork.
Currently coming in two popular colors Revel already offers, the T-1000 silver from the Revel Rascal, and the Mint Green from the Revel Rail, both have a painted to match fork. The Rover is not shy of water bottle mounts, with three in the main triangle and a bottom mount under the downtube. You should have enough water for a zombie apocalypse, but you might not even want water at that point.
The Rover is named after one of the most (in)famous trails in Alaska, Rover’s Run. Revel’s Alaska roots run deep with this bike. Adam, Revel’s owner, grew up riding all over Alaska. And Jordan, the lead engineer for this bike, spent years living in Alaska. We can’t wait to go back and ride the Rover on Rover’s Run
Have your opinions on gravel, but at Worldwide Cyclery we love all the bikes, and we take a special liking to anything the crew at Revel Bikes produces. Ride this Rover gravel bike how you like, throw some big 50c tires and go cruise some fire roads, or run a fast tire and get all the carbon parts and go hit some gravel races. With two great colors, a painted to match custom fork and lots of water bottle mounts, the Revel Rover checks the boxes in what we like to see on a gravel bike.
