You’ve conquered the grueling climbs, attacked the technical singletrack and charged challenging descents. You know how tough new-school courses can be. You and the courses you encounter week after week are the reason we created the all-new Revolver FS 100.
Well, you and our team of world-class XC racers. We wanted to design a bike that would carry them to the podium at top-tier events like the 2020 Summer Games. We re-examined everything we know about XC performance and geometry, employing a holistic design process to create what we, and the team, feel is the pinnacle of modern XC performance.
Because today's XC races are won and lost on every single meter of the course, we started with the rider, and focused on making the most of every pedal stroke – going up, charging down, and powering over technical sections to get to the finish line first.
The result is the Revolver FS 100's revolutionary new geometry that places the rider's centre of gravity forward and lower on the bike, which provides amazing traction and control on climbs.
The Revolver FS 100’s low, forward riding position creates powerful, efficient pedaling, maximum traction, and a front end that stays on the ground when the going gets steep, so you're in control of where you go, and how fast you get there. XC races aren't only won on the climbs, but if you can't climb, you're not going to win.
By shifting the cross country racer's centre of gravity forward and down , riders are able to navigate every aspect of a race course from an optimal position. The suspension design generates increased grip and doesn't wallow when the rider is seated, powering through undulating terrain, this greatly-reduces fatigue by minimizing the need for weight shifts throughout the race.
The Revolver FS 100 has been designed with a fine-tuned carbon frame to optimize pedaling efficiency. We engineered the downtube, bottom bracket and chainstay junctions to provide a 40% increase in axial rigidity, ensuring every available Watt you throw down is translated into forward motion.
The Revolver FS 100 is designed to excel on a wide variety of terrain. The suspension kinematics maintain incredible traction both climbing and descending and provides an efficient pedaling platform without having to reach for the lockout, while tracking better than you would ever expect in rough descents. We’ve also developed a comprehensive, but simple setup guide to ensure the suspension meets the needs of every rider on their favourite trails.
In addition to the pedaling prowess of the new Revolver FS 100, we wanted to be sure it would charge descents – not just survive them. So, we designed it with a 68.5 degree head angle, a 60mm stem, which, when combined with the Revolver’s frame stiffness, provides a level of precision and confidence on descents that will leave competitors in your wake!
