Django Carbon X01 Eagle Complete Mountain Bike
The Django Carbon X01 Eagle Complete Mountain Bike is DeVinci's flagship trail bike, made to cover ground with the agility of an XC bike while remaining surefooted when the trails get seriously hairy. Pairing unstoppable 29-inch wheels with the lively handling of the Split Pivot linkage, the Django makes quick work of challenging terrain both up and down the mountain while never feeling like you're lugging around too much bike. The well-balanced geometry further adds to the bike's versatility, providing the stability needed at higher speeds while staying comfortable and efficient enough to venture deep into the backcountry on all-day rides. To cap it off, DeVinci gives the bike a first-rate build kit consisting of Race Face Next R36 carbon wheels, Fox Factory suspension, and SRAM's proven XO1 Eagle drivetrain.
The defining element of DeVinci's full-suspension mountain bikes is the Dave Weagle-designed Split Pivot suspension. Dave Weagle is well-known in the industry as the engineer behind DW-Link, and his creations deliver some of the best suspension characteristics on the market. Split Pivot's basic design consists of a main pivot and a concentric rear axle pivot separated by the chainstay (hence the name Split Pivot), as well as the brake link (seatstay) that floats between the concentric rear axle pivot and the rocker link that controls the shock. The floating brake link isolates braking forces from acceleration and suspension forces, resulting in uncompromising traction when you're charging across rough terrain—even while braking or pedaling. Many other designs have a tendency to firm up a bit under braking, reducing suspension sensitivity through choppy terrain and thus losing some traction. DeVinci's Split Pivot remains active, soaking up braking bumps and squared-edged hits effortlessly while retaining a supportive mid-stroke for pedaling, climbing, and popping off lips and rollers.
As we touched on earlier, the Django's geometry strikes a fine balance between aggressive trail bike descending capabilities and XC-bike pedaling performance. The long reach figures give you a confident position for steeper descents, balanced by stubby 17-inch chainstays to keep the handling playful and nimble. You can toggle between High and Low geometry settings as well, giving you the ability to to adjust the ride characteristics to suit any trail. In the Low geometry setting, a 68-degree head tube angle and a 13.2-inch bottom bracket height provide the stability needed to confidently charge through rugged terrain, paired with a lower center of gravity for precise cornering feel. If your upcoming ride consists of an all-day marathon of steep climbs and tight switchbacks, flip the suspension chip to the High setting to raise the bottom bracket 0.2-inches and steepen the head angle half a degree. This gives you a bit more control to put the front wheel where you need it, which is helpful for cross country riding.
Like DeVinci's other carbon bikes, the Django is constructed using their mountain bike specific DMC-G carbon lay-up. Using EPS molding, DeVinci creates a monocoque carbon frame with flawless consistency throughout the carbon layers, eliminating resin-pooling and inconsistencies that can negatively affect the strength of the frame. DeVinci puts a lot of emphasis on frame strength and rigidity, inspiring absolute confidence when you're smashing through technical terrain. It also allows DeVinci to offer a lifetime frame warranty to the original owner. The rear triangle allows clearance for up to a 2.6in tire, and its asymmetrical chainstays with Boost hub spacing deliver exceptional torsional stiffness for the frame and rear wheel.
The folks at DeVinci spec this bike with a first-rate build kit ready for season after season of aggressive trail riding. Fox Factory suspension keeps your wheels glued to the ground in choppy terrain while offering plenty of support for bigger hits, too. SRAM's enduro-worthy XO1 Eagle drivetrain shifts crisply across the wide range cassette, ensuring smooth accelerations and a gear for every pitch. Stopping duties are handled by SRAM Level TLM brakes that blend abundant stopping power with modulation that makes it easy to fine-tune your speed. The carbon fiber Race Face Next R36 rims can handle enduro-style abuse and have a 36mm internal width, giving excellent support to the Wide Trail 2.5in Maxxis rubber. They're laced to Race Face's Vault hubs with a stiff oversize hub shell and super-fast engagement that gives a quick pedal response when it's time to put the power down.
