Devinci’s all-mountain bike, the Troy, last received an update for the 2016 model year, where it was ‘modernized’ with a roomier cockpit and Boost 148--the obligatory additions for that year. That was only a few years ago, but in bike years that chassis is going on retirement-home age.
These days, ‘modernizing’ a bike includes stretching the cockpit even farther and slamming the seat tube forward. But that’s not the route Devinci took with this brand new, freshly sculpted, full carbon fun machine.
The Troy did grow slightly up front, with a 5 millimeter bump in reach from 460 to 465 millimeters on size Large frames, but--it feels crazy to say this--in 2018 that could be considered conservative. The seat tube stayed at 74.5/75 degrees (low/high), which somehow could also be viewed as less-than-progressive. So if the Troy didn’t get the industry requisite updates, what did Devinci do to it?
