2014 Devinci Troy Carbon RC 27.5" Mountain BikeReady to step up to the 27.5" big leagues? The 2014 Devinci Troy Carbon RC 27.5" mountain bike is the first 650b enduro bike to feature Dave Weagle's Split-Pivot technology and takes full advantage of a burly mix of DH and XC components to deliver one heck of a ride. It features Fox suspension, a Shimano SLX/XT components, and great parts from industry giants like Easton, Schwalbe, Selle Italia and more.
Devinci has been designing ground breaking bikes from their research and development division, inspired by the automotive and aerospace industries, for over twenty five years. Their engineers use state-of-the-art modeling and analysis software to submit new bikes to virtual testing. No Devinci bike will see the light of day until it passes this scientific rigor. If the bike is competent enough to make it to a production sample, it is then face to face with what Devinci calls, "the test bench". The test bench allows them to quantify their bikes smash-resistance, solidity, and rigidity. If it fails -- it will never say Devinci.
About the Frame: The Devinci Troy Carbon RC features a superlight and stiff DMC-G carbon frame with full response geometry and a tapered 1 1/4" headtube. Devinci Carbon Monocoque technology uses multidirectional layers of carbon fiber that are superimposed in a specific pattern. They also use Nano Powder, which is way of reinforcing the resin with microscopic carbon tubes. FRG, or full response geometry, puts riders in the best possible XC position. It gives every ride a quick and aggressive behavior at lower speeds and maintains unparalleled stability at higher speeds. Additionally, low standover height gives the Troy a nimble feel. The Troy frame also features a BB92 Press-Fit bottom bracket. BB92 offers frame designers a little more room for new designs in seat/down tubes and rear suspension layout. Where a typical mountain bike has a 68mm or 73mm bottom bracket shell width, a BB92 equipped bike has a shell that measures 91.5mm wide.
About Split Pivot: The Devinci Troy uses Dave Weagle's patented Split-Pivot suspension system, where traction, efficiency, maneuverability, and frame stiffness are important factors on singletrack or wide open trail. Split-Pivot offers true performance advantages over other designs by separating acceleration forces from braking forces. This reduces excess suspension compression due to acceleration forces, and at the same time reduces excess compression due to braking forces. The result is an incredible efficiency of power transmission.
About the Suspension: Fox is widely recognized as a leader in fork design and performance. The Troy RC features a Fox 34 Float FIT CTD 27.5" fork with 150mm of travel, a tapered head tube and a 15QR thru-axle design. While the name is a convoluted mouthful, the design couldn't have been made easier for any rider to use. Forks in general have become over-complicated to tune. Lockout, rebound, preload, both high speed and low speed compression -- it can be overwhelming. The new CTD design (Climb, Trail, and Descend) utilizes one lever to quickly switch the compression to the ideal setting. The Climb setting adds low-speed compression to diminish bobbing when standing on the pedals. Trail mode presents moderate low speed compression to balance efficiency and the Descend setting features the ideal blend of high and low speed compression for plush action on steep and aggressive sections of trail. A Fox Float CTD Adjust rear shock features all of the tuning benefits of the fork for further tuning the Troy to every track section of singletrack that you ride.
About the Components: A Shimano SLX/XT custom-mix drivetrain, which features the Shadow Plus designed Shimano XT rear derailleur, and a Shimano SLX crankset with a more aggressive 38/24 ring configuration offers ample options for finding the right climbing or descending cadence. Sleek looking and powerful Shimano SLX hydraulic brakes with 180/160 rotors are added to provide plenty of stopping power. Finally, Easton XR 650b wheels with beefy Schwalbe Hans Dampf tires feature front and rear thru-axle designs for the greatest amount of support and durability.
