GIANT REVOLT ADVANCED 1 (2020)

The Revolt Advanced 1 (2020) is the answer to the ever evolving gravel bike scene.

But you don’t need to be a hardcore adventure athlete to get the most out of the new carbon Revolt Advanced 1. It’s best suited to all types of gravel and dirt roads, smooth bikes and rail trails.

In this preview, I’ll try to explain why you should consider the Revolt Advanced 1.

THE FRAME

It’s made using Giant’s Advanced-grade composite material. Now, it’s not a composite of aluminium and carbon. Composite is what Giant refers to as carbon.

The frame is actually produced from a single mould. This minimizes joins and creates a structure that’s lighter and stiffer especially compared with joining multiple parts of the frame together.

But compliance and flex, need to balance out stiffness to create an exceptional gravel bike.

And the Revolt Advanced 1 has compliance engineered perfectly.

There are 2 major contact points where comfort is important; your bum and your hands.

Giant’s D-Fuse seat post has a completely flat back.This half circle. Or ‘D’ shape has the ability to flex 12mm forwards and backwards (a lot). And this absorbs impacts and vibrations from travelling up through your back and pelvis.

New for 2020, is the D-Fuse handlebar. On the hoods, the bar flexes 10% more than a handlebar with a circular profile. On The drops (when you’re sprinting or descend) the bar is 30% stiffer - deliver better handling.

It’s also worth noting that the Revolt has thru-axles front and rear. Compared to a quick release (QR) skewer, a thru-axle is significantly stronger. There’s a stringer connection between the bike and wheel.

Meaning:

The Revolt Advanced carves a precise arc in bends, delivering better cornering. When you’re riding on rough surfaces the wheels aren’t being flexed and pushed off line.

It makes the Revolt track better.

GEOMETRY

As a true gravel bike, there are some geometry changes to discuss. And for the sake of comparison, we’ll use the TCX - a bike designed for aggressive CX (cyclo-cross) riding.

First, the Revolt Advanced head tube is slightly taller (by 5mm); delivering a slightly more upright seating position.

Second, the head tube angle is slacker (by 0.5 to 1 degree - a lot) on the Revolt Advanced. This creates more high-speed stability.

And:

Trail, which is the self-centering effect of the front end. Trail on the Revolt Advanced is 71mm-74 mm (depending on size) and the TCX is 59mm-68mm (also size dependant).

That’s a very large difference.

Fifth, the bottom bracket is lower by 10mm on the Revolt Advanced. This keeps the centre of gravity low. Also delivering better stability and therefore more confidence on rough offroad descents.

Lastly, the rear end of the Revolt has been shortened by 5mm. This makes sense. Because the Revolt has so much stability at the front end (front centre in nerd speak), that a short back end helps balance the bike.

It should also deliver power faster and climb better.

THE BUILD

The Advanced 1 is built with a SRAM Apex 1 11-speed gravel specific groupset.

And it’s very, very good.

There’s a single chain ring on the front that is paired to 11 rear sprockets. This means there’s no front derailleur or cable - significantly reducing maintenance.

And because there’s no front derailleur, the rear cassette has been increased and now max’s out 42-teeth, much larger than the typical 36-teeth sprocket.

SRAM’s way of shifting is called DoubleTap. There’s one lever that you press once to shift into a higher gear. And tap it twice to shift into an easier gear.

It has one other cool feature:

A clutch or stabiliser unit built into the rear derailleur. The derailleur stiffens whenever the Revolt Advanced encounters a bump.

Why is this important?

It quietens chain noise and stops the chain from derailing off the crankset.

SRAM Apex hydraulic disc brakes ensure there’s adequate stopping power for road and off-road use.

WHEELS

The Revolt Advanced comes stock with 38mm wide tyres but if you’re planning on riding seriously long off-road treks, then it will fit 45mm wide tyres too.

Both wheels are setup tubeless too. If you’ve never enountered tubeless:

The inside of the tyre is replaced with a liquid sealant. This sealant coats the inside of the tyre and plugs any cuts and pinch flats - as long as they’re within 3mm.

And the benefits:

First, the ride becomes smoother. There’s no surface friction between the tube and the inside of the tyre.

Second, tubeless tyres roll faster. Less effort gets you more distance.

Third, tubeless setups deliver superb grip - especially on unsealed surfaces where the Revolt Advanced excels.

But:

The sealant will need to be topped up on average every 6 months. Sooner if it’s dry. The sealant becomes a light foam otherwise. Although it won’t cause any issues, if you do flat then it won’t seal.
