New Giant Revolt Advanced gravel bike gets Giant’s D-Fuse tech

Bar and seatpost designed to add ride compliance

A ride at the Dirty Kanza has almost become a rite of passage for a new gravel bike

At the heart of the Giant Revolt Advanced is a carbon frameset, that Giant says has been designed for long distance comfort and efficiency on variable terrain.

So Giant has increased the stack height and reduced the reach a little compared to its TCX cyclocross bike. The bottom bracket is a bit lower too, to increase stability and Giant’s compact geometry gives lots of seatpost extension and a lighter, stiffer frame.

He’s been cycling for a lot longer than that though and his travels by bike have taken him all around Europe and to California. He’s been riding gravel since before gravel bikes existed too, riding a cyclocross bike through the Chilterns and along the South Downs.
