Introducing Revel Bikes

25
...

Created by Adam Miller of Borealis and Why Cycles, Revel Bikes began when Miller began shopping for a dual suspension trail bike for himself. Miller teamed up with Canfield Balance, a relatively unknown suspension system and Revel was born. Together they assembled a team of industry veterans to iron out design and marketing, and today both the Rail and Rascal have been released. Frames are available for $2599 and complete builds start at $4999. We are liking the looks of both of these models and hopefully, we’ll be able to get our hands on one for a proper review. Until then check out the specs.
