Giant just announced its newly updated Revolt gravel bike lineup, with what it claims to be a much lighter, faster, and more adaptable model. Already featuring on our list of the best gravel bikes, the Giant Revolt Advanced Pro is the brand’s carbon frame gravel racer that’s been ridden to victory at Grinduro and the Gravel Worlds since its launch in 2019. Now the 2022 generation will boast a significantly lighter frameset with updated geometry, designed to boost speed and efficiency on rough roads, gravel and dirt.

The flagship model — the Revolt Advanced Pro — is claimed to be the lightest Revolt Giant has ever produced, with a medium frameset weighing 1,350g with an uncut fork, 200g lighter than the previous model. The Advanced model receives the same frame (which is 980g) and a slightly heavier Advanced-grade composite fork that weighs 410g uncut, totalling 1,390g. Designed with long gravel routes in mind, the new Revolt Advanced and Advanced Pro series both see a total of six bottle cage mounting points: two on the down tube, two on the fork, plus one each on the top tube and seat tube.
