Revel releases completely redesigned press release for the Rascal mountain bike

TThe Rascal V2 retains the award-winning kinematics that the Rascal V1 is known for, but has been slightly optimized to make the most of the 130mm CBF suspension. The Rascal V2 now offers a more stable pedal platform with the familiar, lively feel you expect from the Rascal name. The new Rascal was developed using the latest technologies and is future-proof thanks to UDH comparability. Combined with a 140mm fork, the Rascal is ready for whatever you throw at it. It’s the bike you’ll take on an epic highland mission one day and then race through the rushing current the next day.


When it comes to ride quality and frame weight, their importance is just as crucial as the points listed above. Revel has significantly improved the carbon layup, resulting in a noticeable increase in lateral stiffness within the frame. What’s impressive is that these improvements were achieved while reducing frame weight by 150g. When analyzing lateral stiffness metrics, this updated frame shows approximately a 20% increase over its predecessor, consistent with the advances of Revel’s Ranger V2 layup.


  • As for geometry updates, the Rascal is now longer and flatter, but not too long and too flat, with a slightly steeper seat tube. Let’s call it modern, but not too modern. With a head tube angle of 65.5 degrees, an effective seat tube angle of 76-77 degrees depending on size and 436mm chainstays, the Rascal comes to life on almost any singles trail anywhere in the world.
  • Ride quality and frame weight are just as important as geometry and kinematics. There are significant improvements to the carbon layup and the frame is noticeably stiffer laterally while achieving a 150g weight saving in the frame. (Depending on how the lateral stiffness numbers are used, this frame is approximately 20% stiffer than its predecessor, similar to our Ranger V2 layup improvements). When it all comes together, you can count on rattle-free descents, smooth suspension with smooth braking, and surprisingly efficient climbs.
  • To make things easier for dealers and riders alike, we used carbon molded, guided internal cable routing for easy maintenance. The pivot pin and bearing design is all-new, allowing for a stiffer, quieter interface and a one-tool system for super-easy maintenance, in the shop or on the trail. Revel is a small company in a small town and we pride ourselves on making the best bikes possible.
  • For the first time, all assembly of the Rascal is done right at our headquarters in Carbondale and at our factory in Taiwan, allowing us to go the extra mile to ensure you get the best bike possible. We are incredibly proud of this bike and can’t wait for you to ride it.
