Overview

At home in the dirt

Revel’s newest gravel bike, the Rover, was a natural progression for the engineering team here in Carbondale. Following years of experience with titanium and carbon fiber bikes, we knew it wouldn’t be long until we brought our tried-and-true titanium gravel modern geometry and our carbon fiber molding abilities together to create one of the most capable gravel bikes on the market. Our engineers were able to work some magic giving the Rover one of the best combinations of tire and chainring clearance of any gravel bike, while retaining the fully guided internal cable routing that makes set up a breeze.

With experience in titanium gravel bikes starting in 2016 with the release of the R+, Revel Bikes confidently turned to engineer a carbon fiber gravel bike while taking full advantage of the ability to shape the carbon exactly how we want. We set out to specially design a frame and fork, with just the right amount of dampening to smooth out those long days in the saddle. Prioritizing versatility in its use, we designed the Rover around the SRAM Universal Derailleur Hanger and loaded the frame up with 4 sets of bottle bosses to ensure the Rover will be right at home at a gravel race start line or on backroads adventures.

The Rover is the first carbon chassis I’ve ridden that feels smooth and doesn’t leave me fatigued after rough and rugged roads. This has a lot to do with the fork itself, which flexes a whole lot considering its robust appearance. Even with the 40mm Maxxis Rambler tires, pumped up to 25-30psi, there is a noticeable ride quality happening. Read more...

This ended up being one of the biggest reasons I fell in love with this bike. The ride quality inspired me to ride more, ride further, and ride longer. Once I realized I had five mounting points for bottles and bags, all-day rides became possible. Read more...

The Details

Design Features

Large Tire Clearance

With a 700X50/27.5X2.1 tire clearance, the Rover accepts the biggest gravel tires available with room to spare for mud while keeping class-leading 420mm chainstays.

Sram Universal Derailleur Hanger (UDH)

No more games having to track down a specific a specific hanger. The Rover comes equipped with a Sram Universal Derailleur hanger- a first for gravel bikes!

Fully Routed Internal Tubing

A clean look and a quiet ride guaranteed with our internal cable routing. Bike building and maintenance are quick and easy!

Dedicated 1x drivetrain

Designed specifically for 1x drivetrains, the Rover has clearance for up to a 50T chainring to handle any terrain you may encounter.

Support

The Rover is designed to be 1x drivetrain specific and is therefore not compatible with front derailleurs

Yes! The Rover has a dedicated, fully guided internal routing for a 27.2mm seatpost diameter dropper post. And our GRX group comes standard with the left shifter being your Dropper Remote.

Yes, Di2 can be run with a junction box at the handlebars and the battery in the seat tube. The battery cable will use the dropper routing port and the derailleur wire will run through the standard derailleur cable port. Please check Shimano Di2 Documentation for specific parts and compatibility information.

No - this will void the frame warranty. We haven't tested our Rover for the longer A-C of gravel suspension forks. But we prototyped our carbon frame and fork like crazy to settle on a really smooth, comfortable riding gravel bike, so we're confident you'll be extremely pleased with the ride quality!

The Rover was designed to fit 3 22oz water bottles inside the front triangle of M-XXL sizes and 2 22oz water bottles inside the front triangle of the size small. Additionally, we have included a set of bottle bosses under the downtube for additional bottle or storage carrying capacity on all sizes!

The Rover is designed to accomodate either a 45mm chainline or 47.5mm chainline.

50T round chainring at a 47.5mm chainline or 46T round chainring at 45mm chainline.

36 degrees

Yes! Please refer to drivetrain specific guidelines towards compatibility between mountain and road drivetrain components

No, with the new Gravel specific drivetrains being developed, gear Range and Ratio is sufficient!

Yes you can, just make sure the chain has enough length for the 52t in the rear! Currently only available with wireless shifting.

Sure can, not highly recommended based on Geometry, but it does not void warranty

Of course it can, while it is not yet UCI Certified, we think this would make a great Cross bike if you do not want to have a specific bike for Gravel and Cross.

No, this does not. If you want to get a little more out there on your Gravel Bike, check out the Revel R+.

No, this bike was designed around our Revel Fork with an Oversized headtube, suspension forks are also not compatible.
