The Giant Revolt is a capable gravel bike that is sold at a very good price. You'll enjoy riding this bike away from the city's tarmacked roads and air pollution.
The bike is versatile. While the Giant Revolt is perfect for gravel riding, you can use it for other types of cycling, including commuting and mountain biking.
The bicycle comes tubeless-ready, so you don't have to worry about the added cost of making your tires tubeless.
For $1000, which is the price the bike sells, you get some impressive features like flat-mount disc brakes that are generally only available with more expensive gravel bikes.
The Giant Revolt comes with hybrid brakes, which are a combination of mechanical and disc brakes. They work OK, but full-hydraulic brakes would have been better.
The brakes can get noisy.
There are 6 models in the Giant Revolt series. This includes the more affordable Giant Revolt 0, 1, 2, and the more costly Giant Revolt Advance versions. The bikes are perfect for gravel adventures but versatile enough to be used for commuting and road riding.
The cheaper Giant Revolt bikes have an alloy frame with a full carbon fork, Shimano CH-HG400, 11x34 cassette, Giant Conduct hydraulic brakes with Shimano Sora brake levers, Shimano Sora front and rear derailleurs and shifters.
The Giant Revolt comes with a two-year warranty on the fork. If you damage the fork while riding, Giant will replace or fix it for free as long as you're the original owner of the bike.
The Giant Revolt looks pretty sleek with a nice paint job, decent wields, and a carbon fiber fork. It performs well on gravel and can be used for other types of riding. Buy it if you want a good gravel bike but don't want to spend too much cash on it.
