Never Look at any dirt road the same way
Crafted by the experts at Revel Bikes, the R+ is more than just a bike – it’s a passport to adventure. With its sleek design and unbeatable versatility, this bike is the perfect companion for big rides on any surface. With tire clearance of up to 700x50c or 27.5×2.1, the R+ is designed to tackle any terrain with comfort and style. From singletrack to country roads, this bike has you covered. It even has rack and fender mounts and multiple mounting points inside the front triangle so you can carry gear to help you go further than ever. However, don’t let that deter you for rides when speed is the priority. This bike can hold its own on the cyclocross race track or for 200 miles in the Kansas sun.
Equipped with SRAM Universal Derailleur Hanger (UDH), this is one of the few gravel bikes that is future proofed for drivetrain compatibility. It has an in-house, Revel-designed carbon fork that optimizes ride quality and tire clearance. And it even has dropper post compatibility – all these features and details make us confident that you’ll be blown away by how and where the R+ takes you.
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.Learn More »

What’s the R+ like for bikepacking? Immediately noticeable is all the free and clear space on the frame, thanks to neatly internal cable routing and the lack of front mech. And given the frame is made from titanium, there’s no need to protect it from abrasion, as these can be easily polished out in seconds. For me, this durability is one reason why such a material comes into its own for bikepacking. Read more...
It was stiff and compliant on the road. The bike also excelled at my normal style of “adventure riding” in Boulder which includes pavement, dirt road climbs, dirt road climbs made mucky by snowmelt, and random bits of singletrack that pepper our open space. It soaked up the chatter on the rutted trails and glided over the smooth bits. Read more...
In the end, I feel like I barely scratched the surface of the R+ before it had to go back home. It’s such a versatile bike that you could build it as the trail ripper above, or a bike packing rig, or a fast fat tire road bike, or even a CX race bike.Read more...

We do now! Well, in a way, we always have… our sister company, Why Cycles, has been manufacturing the most advanced titanium bikes in the world since 2016. We're retiring the Why Cycles brand, so now you can find the most advanced carbon and titanium bikes on the market under one name - Revel Bikes.
Yes! It's a great gravel-packer with frame mounts galore.
Sure can, as long as it's a 27.2mm diameter post.
You can indeed. The Revel fork-to-headtube interface is designed to appear "seamless" aesthetically, but all other fork manufacturers should integrate with our head tube. It just may not look the best.
Not currently. Stay tuned.
No. The R+ is designed to be 1x drivetrain specific and is therefore not compatible with front derailleurs.
We recommend using some rubbing alcohol and a Scotch Brite pad and scrubbing gently in a "shoe-shine" motion (one direction or back and forth, not circular), then wiping down and finishing with a light coat of furniture polish like Pledge. This should work for both oxidation and light scratches. The graphics are sand-blasted into the frame, so you won't hurt them if you use a soft touch.
No - this will void the frame warranty. We haven't tested our R+ 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!
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.
Sure can, not highly recommended based on Geometry, but it does not void warranty
Yes you can, just make sure the chain has enough length for the 52t in the rear! Currently only available with wireless shifting.
Yes! The R+ 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, with the new Gravel specific drivetrains being developed, gear Range and Ratio is sufficient!
Yes! Please refer to drivetrain specific guidelines towards compatibility between mountain and road drivetrain components
50T round chainring at a 47.5mm chainline or 46T round chainring at 45mm chainline.
The R+ is designed to accomodate either a 45mm chainline or 47.5mm chainline.
We've updated all Revel Ti bikes with SRAM UDH (Universal Derailleur Hanger), so replacement hangers are easier to find and your bike's drivetrain is more future-proof against manufacturer updates down the line.
Revel titanium frames are lovingly hand-built in the same family-owned and operated factory in northern China used by Why Cycles for a half-decade. All Revel bikes are then assembled and shipped from our facility in Carbondale, CO.
Absolutely! All Why Cycles and Revel Bikes frames come with lifetime warranties and a generous crash replacement program for the original purchaser. If anything does happen and you need a replacement frame, it will most likely be replaced with a Revel branded titanium frame, but we’ll get you back to riding ASAP!
