Safety features

The Giant Revolt E Pro gravel bike is equipped with the new gravel roads specific Shimano GRX 11-speed drivetrain and hydraulic disc brakes, offering purpose-built shifting and brasmooking performance on variable terrain. It also features the E bike-specific Giant eX2 WheelSystem and high-volume tubeless-ready tires for enhanced rolling efficiency, comfort, and a reduced risk of tire punctures when you’re out away from any repair shop or on the trail where you can’t get a replacement. The bike isn’t any less safe on the city streets as the Yamaha Wabash E-bike is optimized for both rugged and smoother terrain giving traction on dirt, gravel, and asphalt.

Value

While being cheaper than the Boardman ADV 8.9E and with its integrated battery, it’s a safe, cheaper option for those who can’t afford to spend as much on a bike that can’t replace the family car.

Giant Revolt E+ Pro Wrap Up

It’s no Specialized Turbo Creo SL, but that doesn’t stop the quality and performance of the E+ Pro from standing out among the best, its lower cost does rear its head, though, mostly in the rigid seat and integrated battery being the parts that make what could have been a great bike and make it only good.
