The Revel Rascal got a lot right with the first release and the new Rascal nearly perfects this winning trail bike formula. It can handle almost any descent yet it still climbs like an XC bike, and does so with confident style.Read more...

It’s also an outstanding technical climber, and remarkably balanced and intuitive in a wide range of situations. It’s an easy bike to recommend to a whole lot of folks, and one of the more impressive takes on a short-ish travel do-it-all bike I’ve ridden to date. Read more...

It balances traction and efficiency on the climbs, as well as control and capability on the descents, and puts it all in a package that lives up to the name, "Rascal." Read more...

The Details

Design Features

Rascal Ponyboy

SRAM UDH

SRAM's UDH derailleur hanger has been incorporated to keep the Rascal compatible with the latest and greatest drivetrain technologies

Rascal Ponyboy

Threaded Bottom Bracket

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

Premium Hardware

The all new Rascal shares the effective and simple hardware design found on Ranger and Rail29 providing increased frame stiffness, more clearance, easier maintenance, and an even quieter ride.

Rascal Ponyboy

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.

Rascal Pinot Gnar

CBF™ Suspension

The Rascal utilizes the CBF™ suspension system that focuses the pedaling forces above the chainring throughout the range of travel, propelling the bike forward through challenging terrain.

Rascal Ponyboy

Fully Guided Internal Tubing

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

Debris Guard

Keep those lower pivots and link clean and clear with our Debris Guard. Included with every Rascal frame.

Support

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

We only recommend the Push ELEVENSIX coil shock.

The shock size is 210x50mm. The mounting hardware size is 25x8mm.

The Rascal was designed to use a 140mm fork with a 44mm offset and an axle-to-crown length of 547-551mm. You may use a 150mm fork with a maximum axle-to-crown length of 561mm.

No you cannot and while we love experimenting and innovation, doing so will void the warranty.

30% is the recommended amount of sag to run on the Rascal. Start with 30% then you can adjust +/- 5% for a slightly softer or firmer ride.

RockShox Super Deluxe Shock has 2 spacers. Rockshox Lyrik Fork has 1 volume spacer. Fox Float X has a 0.4 volume spacer. Fox Float 36 fork has 2 volume spacers.

No we do not recommend doing this. The Rasal was designed to be ridden as a full 29er and performs at its best in this configuration.

The Rascal uses a BSA 73mm threaded bottom bracket.

The Rascal features ISCG-05 tabs. This is a common mounting standard for chainguides and bash guards that you can find from great companies like MRP, OneUp, and E13.

36T ROUND / 34T OVAL.

Maximum rear tire size is 29x2.6.

31.6mm seatpost diameter. 34.9mm seat clamp diameter.

All sizes have a max seatpost insertion depth of 300mm+.

Minimum Rotor size is 180mm. Maximum rotor size is 203mm.

Yes! Following feedback from the original Rascal, we are excited to have a lower link debris guard included with every Rascal frame.

Yes, the Rascal is equipped with UDH to keep it compatible with the latest and greatest drivetrain technologies.

IS52/IS42mm Integrated headset.

The rear hub spacing is 148mm, also known as ""Boost". The axle is 12mm diameter, 177mm long, 1.0mm thread pitch.

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.

Sizes Small through XL frames will fit one bottle within the front triangle and a second bottle on the underside of the downtube. All sizes will clear a 22oz bottle. Larger sizes will have clearance for 26oz bottles. The XXL size can fit a 3rd 22oz bottle on the underside of the toptube

55mm Chainline

Yes! Head to Revel's gear store to find all paint colors available today to touch up any dings you've collected along the way.

Shock mount hardware and chainline are affected between original Rascal and New Rascal, but are easily adapted to work with each other. When you buy a New Rascal frame from Revel it includes a shock so you are all set there, but if you are transferring a shock from the Original Rascal to the New Rascal then please note the mounting hardware has been updated from 22.2x8mm to 25x8mm. You will need a 25x8mm hardware kit. These are specific to the brand of shock you have and are easily obtainable online or from your local bike shop. this is a quick install by a bike mechanic. Minimum chainline on the Original Rascal was 52mm and now minimum chainline on the New Rascal is 55mm. Most cranksets designed for a 52mm chainline can be adapted to 55mm by installing a new chainring with a different offset. This is commonly a 0mm offset, but some brands do it differently. WolfTooth Components is a great source for information and purchasing these chainrings. Please call Revel Customer Service if you have more questions about this.

»   For detailed view and part information on specific pivots, please download the tech manual.
»    Ensure all bolts are torqued to spec listed in this manual and on bolt head.
»   All bolts are right hand threaded but have hex profiles on either end. If turning the bolt from the threaded side, turning counter clockwise will tighten the bolt
»   Bolts come with Nylock patch installed. This serves the function of thread looker and can be reused for multiple installations. Verify condition of patch before assembly. If patch looks worn or damaged add Blue Loctite 243.
»   It is easier to tighten linkage assembly to torque once it has been fully assembled. Similarly it is easiset to break bolts free when linkage is fully assembled.
