Revel updates their popular carbon Rail 29er enduro bike for a new year of riding with longer travel forks that slacken the bike out even further, while letting riders shred just a bit harder. Based on a combination of seeing their own employees and customers out on the trail with longer-travel forks, Revel decided to up the standard spec to 170mm paired to the Rail 29 frame’s 155mm. And to finish off the new 2024 bikes with some extra flair, they’ve added new black and blue paint options. We’re hoping not to color-coordinate with extra bruises from extra sending of the bigger 2024 Revel Rail 29 builds…

Revel describes the update, saying they “spent years designing, testing, riding, and refining this bike, and it shows. The Rail29 represents years of knowledge gained from obsessing over the details to create a hard-charging yet nimble platform.

They also spent plenty of time bottoming out the suspension!

The 29er enduro platform was solid. So, a little more fork travel simply opens up the bike to faster, more technical riding.

You get more for when the going gets rough. More laps in the bike park. More confidence on the race track.

And new colors for a new season never hurt either, right?
