Why We Like The Django Deore Mountain Bike
Devinci's Django trail bike shines across a wide mix of trails, from fast flowy singletrack to technical chunk and slickrock. The Django features 120mm of rear travel for efficient pedaling performance and responsive handling, which is paired with a 140mm fork to soften the bike's leading edge when the going gets rough. 29-inch wheels keep us rolling quickly through the chunk, while the balanced geometry brings confidence at high speeds without losing the ability to climb tight switchbacks and snake through twisty aspen groves. The result is a short-travel trail bike that punches well above its weight class, not shying away from the occasional double-black diamond run or a day ripping laps at the bike park.
There are a couple of things that make Devinci bikes stand out from the crowd and give the Django a bit of an edge over its competitors. First and foremost is the Weagle-inspired Split Pivot suspension system. Split Pivot has the unique ability to separate acceleration forces from braking forces, meaning the suspension remains active while braking in fast, rough terrain while many other designs tend to firm up and lose sensitivity, robbing us of traction during these critical braking points.
The other big reason we love Devinci mountain bikes is their durable, almost overbuilt frames that are backed by a lifetime warranty. This Django is no exception with a hydroformed aluminum frame that's gusseted in critical areas to stand up to the test of riding hard—day in and day out. Tasteful details like double row bearings in the linkage and easy-to-change external cable routing are a mechanic's dream, meaning this daily driver can be ridden hard, put away dirty (or not), giving us absolute confidence in our equipment.
