The Wilson uses a different system then the rest of the bikes in Devinci's line up. The shock mounts to a lower link just like a VPP bike. That's going to really change the ride characteristics in such a way that it would be more comparable to an Intense M9 or a Santa Cruz V10.

But despite having a lower link attached to the bottom bracket, the Wilson is not a virtual pivot bike, it's a single pivot, because the 'seat stays' act as the swingarm attached to the seat tube. The lower link is just for the sake of the floating brake, no?

In an alternate universe I'd get to try one out in ten days' time at a demo day, but because I'm drowning in finals revision, no such luck for me.

Ah true enough harriieee, its missing that upper link. Its more like the Dixon if the whole system was flipped upside down. Interesting. It would be great to try it out. It certainly makes it harder to compare it to anything really.
