Revels Bikes RW30 Trail and Enduro Wheels Just Got Better

Designed in Colorado, made in Utah, and built to last; Revel Bikes continues to reshape the industry. Building on experience from their 2020 FUSIONFIBER® rims, Revel Bikes has increased strength, fine-tuned the lay-up, and updated aesthetics in the all-new Revel RW30. 

Welcome the next generation of Revel Bikes, a fully recyclable, made-in-America, rim. Using a FUSIONFIBER construction achieves best-in-class ride quality, and unlike traditional carbon wheels, FUSIONFIBER rims can be tuned for specific ride quality without compromising stiffness for compliance and vice versa. Finding this balance makes for a quiet, damped ride feel and pushes these rims into a league of their own compared to traditional thermoset carbon rims.

The Revel engineers were dedicated to making a stronger rim where it matters most, while also keeping the dampened and predictable ride feel the RW30 wheels are known for. Optimized for 28 spokes, you will find the new RW30 is bolstered with more material around the spoke holes and less in between each spoke. This increases strength where the spoke meets the rim while keeping weight down for a snappy and precise feel on the trail. By increasing the width of the bead wall (hook) on the new RW30, Revel achieved a 23% increase in impact resistance. Requiring significantly more force before damage is seen in the “single hook onset impact test” (One of the most practical tests with real-world representation). In summation, the new RW30 wheels provide a stronger and more reliable wheel, without a weight penalty.

Finally, a new surface finish, or lack thereof, gives each rim a subdued and stealthy look while showing off the beautiful FUSIONFIBER layup that makes these wheels so incredible. Each RW30 rim comes out of the mold with its final finish, deterring any harmful paints or epoxies, post-processing, or finishing required to achieve this beautiful high gloss look.

The RW30 is a versatile wheelset best suited for Trail and Enduro bikes with 130-160mm of travel and tire sizes ranging from 2.3”-2.6”.
