- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
When I set out to build a new bike for this season, I had a few requirements in mind. First off, to me 29 inch wheels are a no-brainer. Better traction all around, higher rolling speeds and at 6 foot, they just fit me better. Secondly, for the last few seasons, i've been riding long travel bikes with 160+ travel, which felt like too much for most rides. I wanted something a bit more manageable and playful. At 140mm of rear travel paired with a 150mm fork, this bike really hits the sweet spot for me. That amount of travel, supported by a Split Pivot linkage system, makes for a bike that strikes a nice balance between climbing and descending capabilities. Once thing that you notice right away on this bike is just how stiff the frame is. It feels burly and there's no noticeable flex when you get into the rough stuff. The quality and finish of the bike is really high and both colors look fantastic in person.
Check out just how capable this bike is under Keegan Wright!
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Devinci rolled through this spring with their full demo fleet and this was the bike I really wanted to try. We have a short but fun test loop in the hills above SLC that is a great test of bikes climbing, traction, handling, and playfulness.
My 1st impression was that the bike (size Large) is fairly conservative in the reach department. I am just under 6' with a 31ish inseam. My daily driver at this point is a large Yeti SB150 which is a bike that has gone the way of extreme reach measurements along with bikes like the Evil offering. I do tend to wish I had purchased a medium at times for this reason… anyway. The troy is not a bike that feels short but is noticeably less stretched out for me. it does have a stiff and responsive feel at the pedals and bars and does make you as a rider feel like a bike is ready to attack trails at any speed. Even their team rider Keegan Wright has chosen to ride this bike over the longer travel Spartan as he feels it is a faster bike that responds better to his inputs.
Speaking of stiffness – this bike employs 157 super boost to keep the rear end stiff and the frame itself is stout. The bike means business and while having an efficient feel while employing the very progressive feeling Split pivot suspension design this is going to be the trail bike that looks for rougher terrain under the piloting of someone who wants to both find the biggest and demanding rides. Due to the frame consideration this bike is a set it and forget it when it comes to set up. No bolts will come loose and it can take a beating.
If you are an aggressive riding looking at longer rides or if you are looking for a bike to progress your handling skill that isn’t afraid to get scratched this bike would be a very cool bike to consider. I would put this in the category of Evil offering, Yeti SB 130LR, Pivot Switchblade, Niner RIP RDO.
