It doesn’t get more authentic than this when it comes to mountainbike brands. Colorado-based Revel Bikes is owned and operated by a bunch of hardcore mountain bikers with the goal of making the world’s best full-suspension bikes. And with models like the Revel Ranger, Revel Rascal and Revel Rail, they’re well on their way (if they’re not already there).
Revel Bikes was founded by Adam Miller who, along with Jeremiah Starkey (former lead engineer at Rockshox and Trust) and Chris Canfield that designed Revel’s patented linkage. They also brought in Jason Schiers, founder of ENVE and perhaps the bike industry’s greatest genius when it comes to the use of carbon fiber. Jason worked with engineer Mike Geise to create a frame that is not only covered by a lifetime warranty, but is also one of the best looking “in the biz”. The sum of this was incredibly capable and responsive bikes that have taken the mountain biking world by storm!
