Giant can now breath a sigh of relief as it formally launches the new Revolt X range of gravel bikes. The bike was leaked ahead of time before being quickly deleted from the offending websites.

As one of the founders of the best gravel bike and all terrain movement, this latest iteration sees the entire collection gain short-travel front suspension and a 'flip chip' which allows the rider to lengthen the Revolt X wheel base for increased stability and extra rear wheel tyre clearance.
