GRAVEL, DIRT AND SCENIC BACKROADS OFFER SOME OF THE BEST OPPORTUNITIES FOR FREEDOM AND ADVENTURE. THIS LIGHTWEIGHT ALUMINIUM ALL-ROUNDER IS THE PERFECT WAY TO GET AWAY FROM IT ALL AND EXPLORE THE PLACES YOU’VE ALWAYS THOUGHT ABOUT BUT NEVER RIDDEN.
Whether you ride dirt roads, trails, gravel or a mix of everything, you want a bike that floats right through it, keeps you in control, and is comfortable for long days in the saddle. The Revolt delivers on all accounts. It features a lightweight ALUXX aluminium frame and composite fork, each engineered to balance stiffness and compliance. It comes with integrated components including the D-Fuse seatpost and Contact XR D-Fuse handlebar to further absorb road shocks and vibrations. The frame is integrated for disc brakes and it has clearance for larger tyres up to 45mm.
KEY PERFORMANCE FACTORS
Versatile gravel geometry
Frame is designed with endurance positioning and shorter chainstays for precise handling, agility and control. The result is confident speed in all situations, from out-of-the-saddle climbs to rugged dirt descents.
Innovative Contact XR D-Fuse handlebar and D-Fuse seatpost work as a system to help absorb shock without sacrificing the stiffness needed for aggressive road performance. Added frame clearance for high-volume tyres up to 45mm helps smooth out rough roads, gravel and dirt.
The ALUXX aluminium frame delivers efficient pedaling power and all-round versatility, giving you a smooth, fast ride quality on variable riding surfaces.
