Pinkbike’s Take

bigquotesThe Revel Rail 29 is a seriously solid performer. Long after I’d ridden it enough to write this review, I kept grabbing it to go out for more rides – it was just the one I wanted to ride any time I didn’t have specific plans to ride a different bike. While I wouldn’t recommend it to those looking at the all-XC or all-DH sides of the spectrum, it checks enough boxes on the smooth climbs, tech climbs, flow descents, and rough descents that I feel it would work well on the vast majority of bike terrain for the vast majority of people, and it manages to do that without ever feeling boring. I don’t want to sound hyperbolic, but I really feel that Revel nailed it – Railed it? – with this one.— Alicia Leggett
