Giant Bicycles has introduced the newest generation of its Revolt composite-framed gravel bikes, the Revolt Advanced Pro and Revolt Advanced. Both series are built on reengineered framesets that balance race-winning speed and efficiency with Revolt’s characteristic compliance and control.

The framesets are complemented by purpose-built components including handlebars, saddles and WheelSystems developed specifically for gravel riding and racing. Both also feature new innovations such as internally routed cables and an easy access storage compartment inside the down tube to carry tools, snacks and other essentials.

The new range was developed with input from Giant gravel racing pros. American Cole Paton and Australian Brendan Johnston, both top contenders in the Life Time Grand Prix series, trained and raced with prototype models at key events earlier this year. In June, Johnston rode his pre-production Revolt Advanced Pro to a strong finish at Unbound Gravel 200, one of the most prestigious and competitive gravel events in the world.

A quick and simple adjustment on Revolt gravel bikes lets you fine tune your bike for the way you ride. A two-position flip chip located on the rear dropout changes the wheelbase, along with rear-wheel tire clearance, so you can get the best performance out of the bike depending on the terrain and your riding style. This integrated system consists of eccentric, offset hardware that can be easily loosened, removed and flipped to the long or short setting using common tools.

A shorter wheelbase results in a quicker, more agile ride quality. This is a great option for mixed terrain that combines paved roads with smooth, fast gravel and dirt. The responsive feel, combined with smaller diameter (and lighter weight) tires, makes it a smart choice when speed, efficiency and quick handling matter most.

The long position extends the wheelbase, which adds stability for more rugged gravel and dirt. And with added rear tire clearance (up to 53mm), it allows you to choose high-volume tires for added traction and control. The long position is a great choice for rides and routes that include fast, rugged descents and tricky off-road climbs.

Giant Revolt Advanced 1

The Revolt Advanced 1 features larger 45c tires and a dropper post, enhancing its capability to tackle rougher terrain with confidence. Availability varies by market. Photo Supplied.


Dropped seatstays with small-diameter tubing absorb road shocks and vibrations on all types of gravel without sacrificing stiffness while cornering, sprinting or climbing. Each model also comes with the latest Contact D-Fuse carbon handlebars and D-Fuse seatposts to help smooth out rough tracks, improving control and minimizing fatigue over long distances.

The D-Fuse seatpost features a D-shaped composite shaft that absorbs shocks and vibration, producing a smooth ride quality to help minimize fatigue. D-Fuse handlebars are made with D-shaped tubing that’s similar to the design of the D-Fuse seatpost, featuring lightweight construction while offering outstanding vertical compliance compared to round shaped handlebars for a smoother ride quality.

Riders can choose the included D-Fuse seatpost for maximum compliance or switch to a standard 30.9mm round seatpost or dropper post.

D-Fuse Handlebar

The D-Fuse Handlebar improves “pushing” (downward) compliance while also increasing “pulling” (upward) stiffness for better cornering, sprinting and climbing. Photo Supplied.

Revolt Advanced Pro 1

The Revolt Advanced Pro 1 is specced with a SRAM Rival 2x drivetrain and Giant’s D-Fuse seatpost. Photo Supplied.


Internally routed cables offer clean, uncluttered cockpit aesthetics and improved aero performance. An easily accessed storage compartment inside the down tube lets you securely carry tools, snacks and other essentials. Additional integrated mounts on the top tube, fork and rear dropout make it easy to modify with additional packs or fenders.
