Giant once again proves how much bike they can produce for a very agreeable price.
The Revolt series of bicycles are built for adventures off the beaten path, commutes on the bike path, and everything in between. The Revolt Advanced 1 is built as an "adventure-grade" machine, but the design and component build make for versatility on any surface.
The Advanced-Grade carbon fiber frame and fork of the Revolt Advanced aren't repurposed from a cyclocross bike. They're a from-scratch design that prioritizes stable handling, light weight, a comfortable fit and wide tire clearance. How wide? Room for tires up to 700x45c! The Revolt Advanced 1's press-fit PowerCore bottom bracket transmits every watt to the rear wheel by eliminating power-robbing flex. A tapered head tube/steerer tube interface adds precision to every corner and high-speed descent. 12mm thru-axle dropouts, flat-mount brake calipers and internal cable routing shows how Giant wanted the make the Revolt Advanced 1 a sleek performer.
A gravel bike has to perform with every gear shift and squeeze of the brake lever, and the Revolt Advanced 1 has that covered. SRAM's 12-speed Apex 1 components are found throughout the drivetrain, ensuring simplified operation and long service life. Apex components include the adjustable-reach dual-control levers, Roller Bearing Clutch rear derailleur, and even the wide-range 10-42T cassette. SRAM's Apex 1 alloy crankset boasts a 40T chainring combo, allowing a less than 1-to-1 gear ratio for intimidating inclines. Giant's own tubeless-ready alloy P-X2 Disc wheels are wrapped with 700x38c gravel-tread Crosscut AT 1 tires for low rolling resistance and grippy confidence in the rough stuff. SRAM supplies the Apex 1 hydraulic disc brakes, adding excellent stopping power in all conditions, rain or shine.
To help take the edge off of washboard trails, broken pavement and awful railway crossings, Giant developed a clever D-Fuse Composite seatpost that has just enough flex to keep the rider comfortable without "pogo-ing" while perched on the Contact saddle. A Contact alloy stem clamps an equally clever XR D-Fuse alloy road handlebar.
