    They are both entry level, they both have very similar components and geometry. I would go with the one that you like the best after riding.

    I recently purchased the Specialized after much research and have been very happy with it.

    They cost the same amount of money, both have hydraulic disk brakes, both have 27-speed drivetrains, both have 80mm of suspension travel, and both have 29 inch wheels. The only real difference is Shimano/Tektro or SRAM/Tektro. You should decide which one you like best by test riding both of them.

    I just picked up a Giant revel 0. I picked it due to the shifters. Two finger vs thumb on the SRAM. Took it out for a quick bashing <10km through backfill. Other than maybe knocking the rear wheel out of true it held up quite well and is still smooth. (also, Clydesdale here 6'3 and 365) Dropped 3' a few times whilst out too.(onto packed dirt) frame is a one hander for me so it's not bad weight wise.

    I believe that the Specialized has better components, and to find out which is lighter, you need to go to your LBS that sells the bikes and try them out yourself. They cost the same, so it is really just consumer preference here.
