Revel Bikes’ Fusion-Fiber Recyclable Wheels!

CSS Composites has been working on new recyclable carbon technology dubbed Fusion-Fiber for some time now and have partnered with Revel Bikes to produce their new US-made wheels! What differentiates these wheels from other offerings is that the material is 100% recyclable. Not 1%, not 10%, 100%! This is huge when you consider how much carbon material is thrown away!

This technology inspired Revel to produce their first-ever rim, the RW30.

Revel has rims and wheels available now in 27.5 and 29”. The RW30 is an enduro/trail-rated rim. The 27.5 rim weighs 440 grams and the 29er weighs 470 grams. Of course, Revel worked with their good friends at Industry Nine, and all complete Revel wheels will be built with their hubs. Wheels are available with 1/1 or Hydra hubs and Sapim D-light spokes.

Rims retail for $700 each, 1/1 complete wheels are $1975 and Hydra complete wheels are $2200.

High Desert Shredding with the Revel Rascal


High Desert Shredding with the Revel Rascal

It was a rainy afternoon in Sedona. I finished my volunteer shift, and headed into the festival to try and get a demo. I had heard of this new company, Revel Bikes, that was supposed to have some real pretty and real fast carbon full suspensions. I wanted to try one of those bikes as soon as I could. I arrived at the tent about 10 minutes after the event opened to the public.

Every bike was gone.
