Rose announced the Reveal, a new ‘endurance race bike’. To be more specific, it’s a road bike, and fits into the growing segment that’s typically described as Allroad – sporting 30mm tire clearance, but largely sticking to road race DNA. The Reveal is available in two different frame layups and multiple price points, and is the first bike to sport a new logo from Rose.
Rose revealed (get it?) a frame weight of 900 grams, but does not provide a size spec (so we’ll speculate that it’s a small or medium). A BB86 bottom bracket and asymmetric chainstays provide power transfer, along with 12mm thru axles. The Reveal stands as very similar to the gravel-focused Backroad – just a bit less beefy.
As for the frame aesthetic, we’ll leave you with a description straight from the source:
“It stands out for its design that speaks an emotional, yet clean and performance-oriented language. Straight lines, long light-refracting edges and dynamic chamfers define the new ROSE design – all over the 2020 frame platforms. The REVEAL cockpit also has this clean look: It comes with fully integrated cable routing at the headset to neatly hide gear and brake cables.”
Rose follows the modern trend of dropped seat stays and a D-shaped seat post to add comfort and compliance to the frame.
The Reveal is available in a wide range of seven sizes, with full geometry listed above.
