Overview

Built to Explore

We took the legendary CBF™ suspension platform somewhere it’s never been before; think XC light, XC efficiency, with the extra dose of that bottomless CBF™ feel. It is over a pound lighter than the Rascal frame and tough enough to inspire confidence on the descents. Its right at home at the start line of a marathon race, all day in the mountains or just rallying the local trails after work. Welcome to the Ranger- a bike that takes modern XC suspension to a whole new level.

After a few weeks aboard the Revel Ranger, it’s proven to be as efficient, agile, and stable as it is stylish. There are aspects I love about a bike that has relatively modern geo, but can punch above its especially light weight on technical terrain.Read more...

Like other bikes in the Revel family, the Ranger’s suspension feels impressively pedal efficient without giving anything up when it comes to suspension performance when it’s needed. For a bike this small, the suspension is eye-opening when things get rough. Read more...

While being a very fun and efficient 115mm travel bike, you can also ride this thing like a hooligan and really push the limits of what a short travel bike is capable of. Read more...

The Details

Design Features

29x2.6" Tire Clearance

Short travel, big tires. The Ranger was designed to accept up to 2.6 tires to make it even more capable on the down while still quick and nimble on the climb.

CBF™ Suspension

The CBF™ Suspension is what makes the positive uphill and downhill performance of the Ranger possible. Less pedal bob, stable under braking forces, and a bottomless feel keep the Ranger from hardly ever feeling out-gunned.

Fully Guided Internal Tubing

Simple, quiet cable routing! Fully guides internal tubes make maintenance and replacing cables a dream.

Colorado Quality

All Revel bikes are designed, tested, inspected, and assembled by skilled bike nerds in Carbondale, CO.

Bottles for miles

The Ranger frame is built out with 3 sets of bottle bolt bosses to accommodate a large range of bottle amounts, sizes, and other tasty beverages.

Integrated Headset

Simple, easy maintenance with no need for fancy tools. All Revels have integrated headsets with carbon bearing seats for a quiet ride and easy replaceability.

Threaded Bottom Bracket

Simple, easy, straightforward, and standard. We believe threaded BBs are key to any bike for all the practical reasons.

Support

We do not – We found the leverage curve of our bikes leaves the shock very tunablee. We have successfully set up riders from 95 lbs. to well over 230 lbs.

The Ranger is not compatible with any chainguides or bashguards currently on the market.

You can – You will need to order the shock directly from Fox and ensure you purchase the correct tune for our bikes. This is important to maximize how awesome your Revel can be! Fox has a tune guide for our bikes on file. Unfortunately due to our agreement with Fox, you are not able to buy Fox suspension directly from Revel unless is ships on your new bike.

22 ounces is the sweet spot – When using a side-loading water bottle cage, our frames fit a standard Revel 22-ounce water bottle. With a hands-free cap, these bottles are the best option around. Insulated bottles or larger sizes will need to be physically tested for clearance. The Ranger can fit an additional small bottle above the shock on the inside of the front triangle on large and extra large frames! For medium frames, the upper mount works for tool/accessory storage!

52mm Chainline

36T Round / 34T Oval

Our in-house builders prefer to cross the derailleur cable over the rear brake cable. That being said, there is no wrong way; You can run the brake line and derailleur housing to cross under the bottom bracket or not. Just be sure to leave enough slack under the bottom bracket so that the bike can fully cycle through its travel without binding. A good rule of thumb is for the cables to be level with the teeth of your chainring.

We almost exclusively recommend the Push micro-coil for the Ranger, which are available to buy from us. We tested every other coil shock on the market, and this is the only one we want to sell. You will love it.

We did not the design the Ranger to be ridden as a mullet so we would not recommend it!

»   When servicing your Ranger’s linkage, take time to clean all parts thoroughly to ensure creak-free shredding.
»   Apply Ti. Prep or Anti-Seize to threads of forward and rear shock mounting hardware (parts Q and S in exploded view).
»   Apply a thin film of grease to all axle shafts. Do not apply grease to the threads of the axles, bolts, and nuts.
»   Apply blue Loctite 242 (or similar) to threads on the bolts and nuts.
»   We recommend only changing bearings that show signs of wear.
»   To make assembly easier, loosely assemble the complete linkage before tightening any of the pivot locations.
