Off-Road.cc Calls New Revolt Gravel Bike “Very Impressive”!

Tester David Arthur found the Revolt, with an ALUXX aluminum frame and composite fork, makes a great all-rounder for gravel, dirt or commuting on rough roads: “The Revolt 0 gravel bike offers very impressive performance on the road and in the woods, with an easy agility that makes it fun to carve through the corners,” he wrote. “And there’s nothing to hold you back on your commute or weekend road ride either.”

Arthur appreciated the Contact XR D-Fuse handlebar, writing: “The short stem and swept-back handlebar keep the reach short. This means the bars sit easily beneath hands and arms you won’t find overly stretched, yet doesn’t lead to a cramped fit.” Photo courtesy off-road.cc.

Arthur pointed to the Revolt’s geometry and sensible components including a WheelSystem that comes set up with tubeless tires that give it a good ride quality in a variety of conditions. “I was surprised both at how fast the bike is and how nicely it climbs,” he wrote. “Geometry is loosely based on endurance road bikes, but with slacker angles and a longer wheelbase for extra stability and for pure enjoyment and grin factor off-road, the Giant does not come up short at all.”

Summing it up, Arthur wrote: “If you’re looking to embark in some of this gravel and adventure fun that’s sweeping the land at the moment – but don’t want to spend a massive chunk of cash –the Revolt 0 is seriously worth considering.”
