The next generation of materials in the rim game
Lighter, stronger, made in America and 100% recyclable. The new 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-Fiber™ technology developed and manufactured in an aerospace facility in southern Utah.
There’s no environmentally harmful or brittle epoxy in this thermoplastic 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. Demo a set of RW30s today or read the reviews below and see for yourself.
Fusion-Fiber™ is the name for this technology, which encompasses the material and the process. And it's unlike any composite material the bicycle world has ever seen.Learn More »

The wheels do seem to do a good job of damping trail chatter, especially at high speeds, and there is something unique about the way they ride compared to other carbon wheels that I've been on. Read more...
The RW30 rims shrug off impacts from roots and rocks quietly and confidently and don’t let out a stomach-turning clack that I’ve experienced with other carbon rims. After a solid year of riding with next to no maintenance, the rims continue to roll smoothly and dead straight, which is all you can really ask for. Read more...
They’ll give you that extra level of support and deft handling that everyone loves about carbon hoops, but without the harshness or loss of control that comes along with most. They’re compliant enough to really notice an improvement in ride quality and cornering control, but not so stiff that they’d knock me off line. That combination makes for the sensation of cornering like you’re on rails. Read more...
Bottom line: the material properties of Fusion-Fiber™, in concert with quieter Hydra hubs, make for a very quiet ride thus far. Read more...

A first for the bike industry. This material was developed by our partners in Utah and makes for a wildly improved ride quality and manufacturing process.
Best ride quality
Fusion Fiber™ has no harsh and brittle epoxy, so the material naturally softens hard hits and is designed to flex more around trail features, which smooths out the trail and makes holding your line easier and faster.
Made in America
More environmentally friendly, more fun to ride. Clean manufacturing that’s close by.
Lifetime Warranty and Crash Replacement
If you break a rim while riding for any reason, we’ll replace it. If you crash or drive your car over your wheel, we’ll provide a new rim at a great discounted price.
