Product Details

2011 Giant Revel 2

Giant's Revel 2 has the goods to carry you over the rough stuff so you can focus on the trail. Its light, competition-inspired aluminum frame is comfortable and responsive and the bump-absorbing suspension fork has 100mm of travel to help you sail over ruts, rocks and bad pavement, too. You'll love the nimble aluminum wheels wrapped in grippy Kenda tires. And, the easy-pedaling Shimano/SRAM 21-speed drivetrain, supportive seat and grippy linear-pull brakes round out this versatile ride.

    Comments:

    Great bike. I got the Revel 2 instead of the boulder for two reasons: it's upgradable to disc brakes and the aluminum (vs steel) frame.I use it on some pretty aggressive trails in [...]. The stock tires do well on steep inclines w/ packed clay, but they fill quickly and shed slowly whenever I pass through mudd. The shifters are placed comfortably and can be accessed by either thumb when shifting up or down. The large wheels give me confidence when crossing rocky ditches or shallow run-off streams. Overall great buy.

          I bought this bike on closeout for use this winter in Cleveland Ohio. Bought it this week and have already logged over 100 miles on it. Very easy pedaling, great handling and smooth shifting. I normally log 100 to 150 miles a week on my hybrid and got this Giant Revel 2 for rainy days and winter. Tried it in the rain and it handled very well. Can't wait to try it in the snow. Will change to studded snow tires for that.

            Great bike for the money. No problems at all. Used it on beginner trails and intermediate trails and it performs very well.

              I bought this bike hoping it would be the inspiration I needed to get back in shape. 25 lbs later I can say it has definitely accomplished this goal! One of my favorite things about this bike is how upgradeable it is. Although it doesn't come with disc brakes or anything like that, you do have the option to add them later if your riding becomes frequent enough to merit them. After 620 miles in 2 months the chain has popped off ONCE while mountain biking (15 second repair) and that is the only hiccup I have encountered. This is the perfect bike for anyone starting out or getting back into biking. LOVE THIS BIKE!

                My first ride out with this new Revel was just a few weeks ago in San Felsaco State Park where it is bumpy and rugged. My Revel went on a 17.22 mile ride without stopping once. The following night hit the same trails for 11 more miles....I love the bike and believe I made a wise decision. Since then I've added 40 more miles and have had one front flat tire. You should replace tubes with better rubber anyway.

                    Took this bike out for the first time and it was quite fun. Went over the big rocks, down the drops, up the climbs, and across the streams with relative ease. Only drawback was the seat kept angling up after hard bumps, even after a re-adjustment and serious tightening of the seat bolt. But overall this bike was fun and I'm glad I got it.
