At home in the dirt

A gravel bike from Revel? Yep, we’re better known for our shreddy mountain bikes with legendary CBF suspension, but a little-known fact is most of us here at Revel ride gravel bikes at least as much as we ride mountain bikes. We’re also the same people behind Why Cycles and their R+, giving us a pretty good pedigree for designing modern gravel bikes. We’re materials geeks at heart, and we always like to use the right material for the application. However, gravel bikes are where the waters get a little muddy. We’ve been refining the titanium R+ since we launched it in 2016 and it has gotten glowing reviews, but we all wanted a carbon version too.

We knew we could make a great gravel bike by taking full advantage of the ability to shape carbon exactly how we want and truly optimize the ride quality. We designed the frame and fork from the ground up, with just the right amount of damping to smooth out those long gravel roads. Our engineers were able to work some magic to give this bike the best combination of tire clearance and chainring clearance of any gravel bike on the market while retaining the fully guided internal cable routing that makes setting up Revels a breeze. 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 CBF™ focuses the center of curvature in a very finite area on the chainline/top of the chainring, pointing the pedaling forces directly where you want them.

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...

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.


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.

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 Why Cycles R+.

Yes, but this bike was designed around our Revel Fork with an Oversized headtube, causing most other modern forks to look small, and not aesthetically pleasing.
