2020 Devinci Troy Carbon/Alu 29 GX Eagle Bike
Sometimes deciding what mountain bike is suitable for your daily trails and expansive enough for your alpine ambitions isn’t always easy. The all mountain Devinci Troy Carbon/Alu 29 makes that decision a whole lot easier with 140mm rear travel and 150mm up front. It’s the type of setup that will be super-fun on flowy trails close to home, but also able to take on the more rugged gnarly routes you can strike out to find at the weekend.
As the name suggests, the Troy Carbon/Alu differs from the Troy Carbon by having a front triangle made from lightweight carbon while the rear is made from high quality aluminum. It’s a nifty way to keep the cost down without sacrificing any of the performance or durability. Devinci has relied on the same geometry for the Troy Carbon/Alu as well, which combined with the suspension rate, will ensure huge capability mixed with the all-important playfully fun factor. Devinci has resisted the impulse to go as long and low as possible, and instead keep the reach that tad shorter than is the current fad, and the seat tube around the 75.5/76° mark, depending on frame size and flip chip setting. Then pairing that geo with the 29 inch wheels, and 140mm rear travel and 150mm front makes the Troy Carbon/Alu both capable and versatile. Well-balanced and aggressive, it will descend like crazy, but the mix also keeps it snappy enough to be an enjoyable climber.
For the rear shock, Devinci has turned to a trunnion mount that takes up less room than a standard mount, and works by rotating on bearings rather than bushings at the upper link. It will allow you to run longer shocks or lower your standover, and the small bump sensitivity will be improved. Using the split pivot design makes it possible to separate the acceleration forces from the braking forces. The low standover height will also do its bit to keep you planted since the low center of gravity will improve handling and make it easier for you to maneuver your body around as you negotiate obstacles. Since the geometry can be adjusted to a high or low position using the adjustable flip chip, you can lower your position to make it quick and aggressive at low speeds and epically stable when you are slashing it on a steep downhill run.
To ensure you could fit your 29ers with big rubber, Devinci has opted to use SuperBoost Plus 157 spacing, which also has the added benefit of keeping the chainstays shorter. The Troy Carbon/Alu comes in two complete builds, one a 12-speed SRAM GX Eagle build and the other a 12-speed NX/GXmix. Both are top notch choices that offer excellent value for money, just like the frame itself. And both have been shod with Maxxis Minion rubber, the rear has a chunky 2.4 inch while the front gets an even beefier 2.5 inch tire, to ensure the ultimate traction over the roughest trails.
The Devinci Troy Carbon/Alu 29 all mountain bike crusher offers the versatility we all love when facing a variety of trail options. A balanced descending and powerful climbing machine, the Troy Carbon/Alu 29 opens up your potential on local trails, and keeps you dreaming about new challenges to conquer.
