27.5″ WHEELS / 165MM REAR / 170MM FRONT
The Revel team created the Rail with two things in mind: maximum thrills and climbing hills. A tuned carbon layup makes railing through berms pure joy. The Rail will put an end to the traditional trail bike compromises to ascent efficiency to which you’ve grown accustomed. The Canfield Balance Formula is the heart of every Revel bike, which maximizes the amount you pedal in the sweet spot and keeps the suspension wildly active while descending and braking. Read more about our technology here, or ride a Rail for yourself and get hooked.
CBF (Canflied Balanced Formula) suspension
CBF™ focuses on designing rear suspension around the Center of Curvature (CC). CBF points the chainline and corresponding drive forces around the top of the chainring through 100-percent of the travel resulting in maximum pedaling efficiency, regardless of where you are in the travel, what terrain you are on or what kind of power you’re putting down. All the power you put into the pedals goes into turning the rear wheel, allowing the suspension to do its job completely independent of drivetrain and braking forces and making the sag setting much less critical.
Carbon Layup Tech
Revel uses a mix of Japanese Toray T700 and T800 fibers in the frames, but the real magic that makes the bike so good is in the angles. Most bike frames use a selection of 0-, 45-, and 90-degree fibers, since these are the most readily available and easiest to work with. Revel optimizes their frame using more 30/60-degree fibers, which, when laid up properly, creates stronger and stiffer tubing and shapes, using less material.
Integrated Revel Chain Guide
Details! Revel wanted to create a super-stealthy, ultra-effective chain guide. This lil’ guy will hold your chain on your chainring and is super easy to adjust—all while maintaining the simplicity and clean aesthetic. Optimized around SRAM DUB cranks and BBs.
Revel uses the best method for internal routing in the biz! Revel’s full-carbon tubes are molded in one piece onto the inside of the carbon frame tubes. Not only does this provide structural improvement to the frame, it also allows you to route an entire frame in about a minute. No rattling, no noise, and no fishing cables out of frames.
