One of the benefits of being a smaller bike brand that doesn’t rely on model years? Essentially, you can offer new frame colors as often as you’d like. The founder of Revel Bikes, Adam Miller, told us that choosing frame colors is one of his favorite parts of the process. That means they tend to update the colors whenever they feel like it, which usually coincides with nailing down the right one.
Their most recent update includes two new paint options, one for the 27.5″ Rail and the other for the 29″ Rascal. The Rail gets finished in what Revel is calling ‘Tang’ which is an homage to Adam’s first custom paint job that he completed himself while growing up in Alaska. We’re guessing the finish on the Rail might be a little more polished than that first bike, but we love to see personal touches like this that help to tell a bigger story.
Note that the Tang colorway is in addition to the Mint and Tuxedo options, giving riders three different choices for their new Rail (four if you count the three remaining XL Limited Edition Pink ‘Love Your Brain’ Fundraiser Rails). Pricing for the Rail starts at $2,799 for the Frame Only, $3,499 for the Frame and Fork Only, and $4,999 for complete builds starting with a GX Eagle kit.
Over on the Rascal 29’er side of things, this one draws inspiration from the red rocks and dirt of Sedona – where Revel first launched at the Sedona MTB Festival.
Sedona Red joins the T1000 liquid metal finish for Rascal finish options with the same pricing as the Rail – starting at $2,799 for the Frame Only, $3,499 for the Frame and Fork Only, and $4,999 for complete builds starting with a GX Eagle kit. Both are available now.
