Revi Rebel 1.0 Description

The new Rebel 1.0 from Revi Bikes (formerly Civi Bikes) combines the portability of a folding electric bike with the durability of an all-terrain fat tire bike. The Rebel 1.0 has been engineered to accommodate bigger and taller riders, and is strong enough to be ridden off-road.

Fully unfolded, the Rebel 1.0 ebike measures a respectable 68.5” long and 24.75” wide, with a secure locking mechanism adding strength and stability to the folding frame. So even tall guys won't feel like they are riding a kids bike.

Although the Revi Bikes Rebel 1.0 ebike is only available in one standard size, the stem has been designed to move telescopically, while the saddle can be lowered all the way down to the clamp of the seat post. As a result, this versatile folding electric bike is comfortably suited to riders ranging in height from 5’2” all the way up to 6’2”.

The 20” wheels (a common wheel size on folding e-bikes) are fitted with knobby fat tires that are 4” wide, providing excellent traction on loose surfaces (such as gravel, sand and even snow). The smaller wheels, coupled with the 500 watt geared hub motor, also improve traction and initial take-off speed.

The Bafang high-speed motor runs off a 48 volt, 13 amp hour lithium-ion battery, that is easy to remove from the frame. This means recharging the batteries is a much simpler process, as the battery can be detached and carried inside separately from the e-bike frame (no need to carry the whole e-bike inside whenever charging is required). This long-lasting lithium battery provides enough power to travel up to 30 miles relying solely on throttle engagement, or up to 40 miles when the PAS system is engaged.

A range of programs can be selected from the Matrix LCD display, which also allows you to keep track of battery power remaining and current motor output. For enhanced safety, the CIVI BIKES Rebel 1.0 folding e-bike has heavy-duty disc brakes (front and rear), while the memory foam saddle promises superior levels of comfort.

Electric Bike Review (EBR)

Electric Bike Review summed up their thought on the Civi Bikes Rebel 1.0 by saying:

  • A powerful folding fat tire electric bike with mechanical disc brakes, 7-speed drivetrain, 500 watt planetary geared motor from Bafang, and high-capacity 624 watt hour battery pack for longer range
  • Only available in one frame size but the telescoping stem and seat post offer some fit adjustment, two color choices (black or white), optional steel fenders and alloy racks (front and rear) but no light options
  • Slightly upgraded Shimano Altus derailleur, good kickstand choice and positioning, plastic chainring guard prevents chain drops and an alloy support bar keeps the bike stable when folded but no magnets or bands to keep it folded
  • Folding fat tire bikes balance approachability with comfort, increased air volume reduces the need for suspension, tire pressure can be lowered for use on trails, packed snow, and even sand, the bike weighs more than average at 60 lbs, the rims aren't punched out, no USB charging ports, key must be left in to ride

    Love Love Love

    My brother bought this Rebel and I fell in love with it from the first time I tried it. I recently retired and decide to get one of our own. I love the look and power, it is great off-road and comfortable to ride. Could not have made a better choice.

    Really Good Ebikes

    Thanks for the review.


    Great Electric Bike

    Great ebike, it was surprisingly very powerful for the price. I loved the look of this ebike from the start and fact that it is a folder was a big plus. I just wished that I did not have to pre-order and wait to get it. But I must say it was well worth it, I can't get enough of this bike.

    Really Good Ebikes

    Thanks Harvey. It's appreciated.


    Great Bike

    I loved the look and specs of this bike front the start, but I was a bit worried about the size. Turned out to be a great choice and fit for me. I am defiantly loving my new bike. It is not very heavy, and rides very comfortably even off-road.
