Devinci Announces All-New Troy

Jun 28, 2018
by Cycles Devinci  


PRESS RELEASE: Devinci

Devinci Troy 2019

No two mountains are the same. And from the Rockies to Appalachians, the all-mountain Troy brings badass performance to some wickedly diverse terrain. Powered by our Testing is Everything modus, its fifth generation Split-Pivot platform increases bottom-out force, while its team-inspired geometry tames steep, rugged, unpredictable terrain. Power up steeps with finesse thanks to an axed-down short chainstay. And harness the stability-enhancing benefits of Super Boost 157 rear-axle spacing for high-speed confidence on the descent. The 2019 Carbon line-up is available now, while the aluminium models will drop late fall. Introducing the All-Mountain Troy. Point it toward the ranges and rip.

FRAME TECHNOLOGIES



Devinci Troy 2019
• 27.5 & 29 Options
Choose wheel size based on your physical size, riding style and personal preference. Now both 27.5 and 29er options are available on the Troy, each with 140mm of rear travel and a 150 or 160mm fork depending on the model.


• Super Boost Plus 157 rear spacing
Super Boost Plus 157 rear spacing optimizes chainstay span, as well as tire and front chain-ring clearance, while using a stiffer rear wheel.


• Full carbon frame
Send it with a full carbon frame that dumps weight, with improved response and stiffness

• Updated geometry
Updated geometry includes longer reach and a slacker head angle combined with a short chainstay for an agile, yet playful feel on the trail.

• Dual bottle cage position (size M to XL)
Dual-bottle cage positions synch a 500ml bottle with a piggyback or coil shock, or a 750ml bottle with the standard shock (size medium and up).

 @taletotell: So yes. But when 157 came out only about half of the companies used it and pretty much only on DH rigs. Many companies stuck with 150. Then with the introduction of 148 almost all companies switched to 148, and even on their DH rigs. Now we are being "Sold" 157 for trail bikes. I'm simply stating that "I'm not buying", not the marking ploy or the bikes. Each to their own.

 @huntstyle: I couldn't agree more. This seek and destroy mentality is so messed up. This video is such a turn off for the brand in so many ways: pointless flicking of dirt, riding with no regard for keeping single track single, no regard for other users of the trails, riding without water, riding without tools. Devinci, you made it clear your brand is not for me. Well done.

This is one of the best things they could have done, everyone coming up nowadays doesn't care about bike setup and shit, its overruled by style. There's nothing worse than an oldie slowly riding down a hill. Videos like this motivate people to get out onto the trail and skrrt a few berms or throw a couple fatties. Mad respect to everyone at Devinci for bringing the sport to the next level
  • 11 2
 @BaeckerX1: haha! I feel ya and I understand. I just get a little defensive because I have put in the hours and try to strengthen the community by building sustainable trails. Also, I know that I left the trail as I found it, thats all. Clearly, in response to the comments, not everyone likes the roost XD, but I certainly think it looks exciting and shows finesse when someone is putting trust in the bike to lean hard into things and not just be dragging the brake everywhere. There is a difference. Skids vs drifts. Granted, I do skid a couple times in the video, most of the roost is coming from actions not from braking. Let's face it, trails are going to get destroyed regardless, and if the community can't come together to rebuild them, then the trails shouldn't belong.... You rebuild your suspension everytime you blow it out, right? Wink

 @huntstyle: True story, I'm riding the uptrack to my favourite trails and I see all these skid marks at the corners. I'm thinking to myself "What the heck " when i see this kid barreling down the trail and entering into full skid mode. He stops when he sees me (narrow trail) and instead of losing my sh!t I ask him where he's from. "Oh, I'm from Sweden" super friendly kid, totally stoked on biking, studying at a college near here. Hes never been mountain biking so he decided to rent a bike and try the trails. When i ask him about why he was skidding his answer was an honest " that's how everybody in the videos I've seen does it!" Guy wasn't being a jerk at all, just mimicking what he saw.

 This so called super boost is what the trail bike industry shoulda done years ago!!! Just use already existing DH hub standard instead of coming up with a all new standard like Trek did when they first introduced their remedy/fuel in 2015/2016 with the first boost spacing. So applaud Devinci for this move. Trek proved that wider hub flange spacing works, so Devinci decided to go all in and use the widest ALREADY existing hub to improve their bike.

 Seems like bike makers are so obsessed with simply making a carbon version there just knocking them out quick, cheap with a overkill layer up just so not to have loads of warranty instead of doing some proper home work to make them as light and strong as carbon should be.

 A Scott Genius frame is over two pounds lighter.
  • 10 1
 @markg1150: precisely what I’m thinking. Seems we’re actually getting further away from properly engineered carbon frames rather than closer. Personally not too fussy about the weight but if there’s no weight saving then we could have probs just stuck with aluminium...? Leads to me think two things - brands are now able to bang out carbon frames cheaper than aluminium ones and/ or the demand for carbon for carbons sake beats any costs saving over aluminium.
  • 14 0
 @iqbal-achieve: I think you hit the nail on the head... demand for carbon. Because consumers are demanding carbon, they are doing whatever it takes to get a carbon bike out. May be sacrificing quality in the process. I think most of it is marketing anyway. Not just with carbon, but with all sorts of components. The advantages are likely slim to none, but the marketing departments have done a good job convincing us that we'll be better & faster riders if we have the latest and greatest of everything.

 @huntstyle: i literally just said that on a comment higher up. It couldn't be more true.

 Wait a minute. Devinci carbon frames have always been heavier - the old Troy was a bit beefier as well. My understanding is that's how they can offer a lifetime guarantee on all their frames with proof of receipt, which is pretty damn great let's be honest.
  • 7 1
 I currently ride a 2018 Troy and dont care for the weight and never will because the bike makes it up in stiffnes which is far more important to me on a trail/allmountain bike.. Judging by the slow motion bits in the video (the tree bark bonk) this looks stiff as hell, well done Devinci. My 2 cents.

 @shortcuttomoncton: Knolly offers a lifetime guarantee on the Carbon Warden - 2835g or 6.25lb w/ DBair IL and alloy chainstays...
I guess that devinci carbon manufacturing is just cheap, like Santa Cruz C vs CC frames or Yeti turq vs non-turq (350 g - 0.77 lb less).
  • 2 1
 @huntstyle: very much agree with you here. I think when carbon production was in its infancy the price premium the consumers paid over aluminium was somewhat justified due to higher production costs and some (meagre) weight savings. Now it’s easier to find a carbon factory and cheaper to get it done by just shoving the carbon into a mould but we’re still paying higher and higher prices. They just holding a load of components together with a cheap, swoopy shaped bit of plastic and asking thousands for em.
I’m no industry insider, maybe I’m wrong. But this is the way it seems to me.

 @markg1150: I have the 2017 model of troy. It's heavy like this one. My front tire kicked up a rock and gouged the frame. I didn't crash at all. Devinci is making me pay for it. Don't think just because it's heavy and layered up that it is super strong. It isn't. My bike just became one year old a week after this happened.
  • 6 1
 @BEEner: Look, I don't want to be defending one side or the other here when I don't know the full story....but to my knowledge warranties are meant to cover manufacturer defect (breaking, cracking, etc.), not external damage caused from use. If a rock or tree punctures the frame, that's not the manufacturer's responsibility unless you can tie it to a defect...and as someone who has a beautiful tree gouge in the downtube of my carbon bike, I can say that it's pretty tough to blame the bike company for damage from a sharp, super-hard impact...
  • 3 1
 @shortcuttomoncton: well I guess it depends how you define defect. The issue I have with my personal situation is that its right by the bottom bracket where they should have a frame protector. Under their warranty, damage cause by aftermarket frame protection is not covered so I was a little gun-shy on wrapping the frame. Part of designing these things is trying to foresee these events and your tire kicking up rocks in an obvious one. While my initial comment may have been a bit too personal, I was more trying to point out that fact that laying it on thick isn't necessarily going to make the bike stronger than other companies.. Having said that, I do think a bike should be able to withstand a rock no bigger than my pinkie finger that was thrown by a tire.

 Devincis are always heavy AF. I'm not a weight weenie (on a Commencal Meta=not light), but this frame is actually heavier than mine...

I can't help but wonder "what's the point?"
  • 1 0
 @rezrov: the point is that if you want to offer a lifetime guarantee and keep production costs low on a Carbon frame (so cheap manufacturing, fibers, etc) you have to overbuilt the frame = weight penalty.
Like santacruz C frame vs CC, yeti turq vs non-turq, specialized S-works vs non-S-work carbon frame, etc...

 @BEEner: Sorry dude, no fookin' way did a 'kicked up rock' gouge the frame. I also ride the same Troy, that downtube is THICK. Besides, put some protection on the DT. Any carbon bike should have some sort of heli tape or thicker on there, that's just common sense.
Their warranty rejection over frame protection would be over removing it and messing up the paint, not frame damage.

 I’d say it looks great, but the pricing has me curious. $5,800 for a carbon with GX when you can get an Ibis Ripmo for $1k less with similar build. Devinci used to be the value purchase at that price point. Or am I missing something because of a misprint, GX and GX Limited are listed at the same price? The GX aluminum looks like a great price point for shops.
  • 2 0
 Something seems odd. Devinci has always been one of the better bangs for the buck and looking at this pricing has the carbon gx version a full $2000 more than the Aluminum GX version while the difference in frame price is only $1200. I'm guessing a misprint

 Seems pricey for the spec, would rather see them spec'd with Fox 34/36 options on the 27.5 instead of Revelation/Pike. And in 29er I think I'd be looking at a Ripmo if I wanted a Weagle bike at this price point.

 Couldn't agree more. Plus, the 27.5+option to me is really not a positive.

 This is a good point. Hard to pick this over the Ripmo, I wouldn't do it. The Alum version tho...this is the hotness!
  • 4 0
 I'll love to support a Canadian bike company - but it's pricier than other premium brands like Santa Cruz, Ibis, Yeti, or Evil. If the carbon is made in Canada like the Aluminum, then it's worth it. But agree Ripmo seems like a better value and bet.

 The lower shock mount looks weird to me... don't like the gap between that and the downtube! Treks often look a bit like that because the lower mount is an extension of the chainstay and it serve a purpose in the floating shock design, but here I don't see the point!
  • 6 3
 It's moronic.

Here's what they could have achieved by lowering the shock position.

Downtube/BB mounted lower mount. Far stiffer, lighter, cleaner.
Longer eye to eye shock for better leverage ratio.
Lower Link position for more seat post insertion/longer travel dropper post.

It's another bike designed for aesthetics first. A marketing bike.

 Yep i'ts really weird : trunnion was released to achieve shorter shocks. Here there was a lot of room to fit a regular shock. And why so short ? It looks like the tiny shock on XC bikes.
  • 1 0
 @Whipperman: my guess is : longer shock stroke = need for longer shock rocker (longer frame to shock section) to achieve shock stroke = different ratio curve since on this type of mono pivot the ratio curve is given by the rocker arc.
So maybe their ultra progressive ratio is not achievable with à longer rocker.

 So for $11K CAD I can get a X01 Spec Troy still barely scraping under 30lbs.
Or I could go out and find any other top-spec 29er for $3-4K less than that...
  • 4 0
 I have an older carbon Troy. It was a lower spec so I got it for as much as the frames sell for now just about. I've put maybe $1.5k worth of parts into it so it's about a $5k bike. It's under 30lbs and a pretty damn good spec now. I wonder why they got so expensive. The value before was great and now I don't know.

  • 10 4
 hurey, the next new bike with 157 super boost...
seems like every new bike is gonna have this rear axle standard from now on.
love gettin f* by the industry again.
  • 24 5
 How exactly is the industry F**cking you? Are they holding a gun to your head saying you have to buy this new bike? Are hubs not still available in every single standard that has existed since the early 2000s? Hell with all these new standards that come out over the years you can still get ALL the parts for older bikes. I can still go build up a 10 X 135mm hub on a 26” Wheel with a 26” tire. I can go buy all of that stuff BRAND NEW from manufacturers right now. Does the release of this bike, along with new Pivot Firebird or any other bike suddenly make your existing bike obsolete? Does it not work anymore simply because something new came out?

All the industry is doing is actually trying to improve bikes so that when you are ready to buy a new bike it performs a little better than the one you bought previously. You know what other industry does this? EVERY OTHER INDUSTRY ON EARTH. Mountain bikers really need to get over themselves when it comes to this aspect of progress. The engineers involved in these choices are trying to make bikes better for everyone, they are not wasting time and money developing something for no purpose.
  • 6 3
 @Senna8730: It's not so simple. You should have seen how hard it was to find a fork I wanted with a non-boost front. Just look at all the Fox forks on somewhere like JensonUSA and try to find a non-boost option. We were supposed to still have choices, but that's not what I've seen. You're basically forced to buy a boost fork if you want the new technology. Which then requires getting a new wheel, or getting an adapter and re-dishing your wheels. Also, now that I have a 148 rear end and a non-boost 100 fork, getting any deals on pre-built wheelsets is out, because it's either boost both, or non-boost both options. Just saying. I can see the advantages for wider rear ends, but I honestly don't need to shove a 2.8 tire in my fork so not understanding that one. Stiffness advantage? I'm a big guy, and I never had an issue with 100mm axles that the extra 10mm is gonna solve for me.
  • 4 2
 @BaeckerX1: Why didn’t you just get the adapter and re-dish? You knew it was an option. I did it, an it works out perfectly.
  • 2 1
 @JustinVP: I'm really not worried about it. I searched around a lot and found a great deal on a non-boost Lyrik instead of going with Fox. Last year's model but the price was ace. Just might not have that option in the future is all I'm saying. This will last me until this fork dies, at which point we'll have Super Duper Boost 9000 Ultimate anyway.
  • 4 0
 @JustinVP: Plus as consumers the big thing we can do is speak with our wallets. Buying a 50% off non-boost Lyrik was my small act of rebellion, though certainly price factored into the decision. Snatch em while you can! Big Grin I don't necessarily agree with you that speaking up and complaining is always a bad thing. With all the outcry against PressFit bottom brackets we are finally seeing a bunch of companies moving BACK to threaded bottom brackets. Sometimes a loud unified voice of protest helps. Also a great many brands are actually focusing on fitting a water bottle in the front triangle, and some even use it as a selling point.
  • 3 1
 @Senna8730: the problem is that the industry is comin up with new standards every 4 years or so. when you're like me are only buying framesets because you like to customise your ride and use mostly the high end parts from your previous ride you're f*d when from now on every new bike is having a new standard. for example i'm riding a nomad 4 for now and converted my rear hub to boost standard thru adapters or otherwise i would've had to scrap my high end rearwheel. luckily that was possible with hope hubs but i don't that using adapters is the best longterm solution if rearends or forks are getting any wider.
and for antother example i would love to ride the new red lyrik but it's only available on boost, so the industry is taking away my choices. and i'm not talking about 10 year old standards or so.
  • 2 1
 @striveCF15: I do the same thing, so I feel your pain. Every time I buy a complete bike I end up replacing this here, upgrading this there, and spending extra money customizing it the way I want. So if I can find a deal on a frame I want, I'm more likely to do that and build it up with my existing parts.

My current bike has Shimano brakes, SRAM drivetrain, Fox shock, Fox dropper post, Rockshox fork, Hope hubs, Stan's rims, Renthal stem, Easton bar, Chromag saddle, Deity pedals, Maxxis tires. I like picking out what I like vs just riding whatever they put on a bike. My ride is uniquely my own and makes the whole build process more fun for me. Preferences... Smile
  • 4 1
 @Senna8730: One negative aspect to constant changes is resale value. People want the latest and greatest thing on the market, so many used bikes have awful resale value. When your $7000 bike is hard to unload for $3000 two or three seasons later, that's bad. That's with new tires, cassette, chain, fork and shocks serviced, dropper replaced, brakes replaced, etc. That's like an S Class Mercedes.

I'm probably not alone in this and it's probably the opposite of what the industry is trying to achieve, but I buy a lot less stuff because of these new 'standards'.

 @jollyXroger: no smooth lines here. I see a lot of superfluous 'brand language' styling. Its not free either - it adds small amounts of weight every time a caffeinated designer decides to add another kink here and a crease there. Carbon likes straight lines and generous curves (Ibis, Yeti, yes even Trek). Paraphrasing the OP I can't say I like where Devinci is going over the past few seasons.
  • 2 0
 I worry about putting a long dropper down that tight seat post. Also, man I just had some amazing carbon wheels built up by Light Bicycle (or Carbonfan, XM CarbonSpeed, Nextie, etc). You think they have hubs in this size for you? No. I wouldn't jump on this yet, tho it does seem to be taking off. I'll wait until people say they really love it and need it. Not everyone on the Switchblade liked all that extra stiffness with their Reynolds carbon wheels. Said it introduced a bunch of bike chop in some corners etc where a more compliant, less stiff rear end was preferred. Probably great for people REALLY hammering it, but that isn't the masses on a trail bike.

 Hey Devinci, is the frame's internal brake cable routing 'moto' style friendly..... Meaning can I route the left/rear brake cable on the right side of the head tube through what looks like 1 of 2 ports or am I stuck routing it on the left side of the HT?

 I have Devinci Troy Carbon 2014 (frame bought from UK, thanks PB ads!). Nice bike, it has it's own small share of not that great details (ie side flex in rear end, rattling cables, short reach, missing plushness), but it's fun to ride and looks cool - my best bike to this date with thousands kilometers of great times.Smile I was thinking about upgrade to current model in winter (there were nice sale prices), then waiting for the new Spartan. The wait was worth - the new Spartan delivered, love how it looks, but new framekit was way of my range pricewise and my current components wont fit. Back to Troy thoughts. Then the rumors about 29" Troy came - *imagines something like new Spartan but with 140mm travel and 29" wheels* - YAY!. Well, this new Troy is not what I expected. Frown Maybe it will grow on me, but the price and weight is ridiculous. It might ride like dream, but back to ads for current Troy (too bad it can't use front derailleur)..
  • 2 0
 I'm a curent Troy owner (love the bike). Why no XL 27.5? I don't want a 29er. Also, Devinci's carbon frames used to be reasonably priced relative to aluminum. They've jumped by 50% over two years and now force a Reverb on you if doing 'frame only.' No reason for me to update if the frame costs as much as my complete Troy cost new in 2016, regardless of the need to get a new rear wheel and sell the Reverb.
  • 1 0
 I loathe all SRAM builds. I really don't get the why they force the POS junk Reverb to customers. Most of bikers looking for frame option want custom build, not some generic and unnreliable crap..maybe SCAM gives even bigger discounts if bike producer stains every product from line with their excrements.

Hoping something comes along to wake them up, or make them obsolete, the way SolidWorks did to ProE many years ago. That something might be F360 or OnShape or something else.
  • 1 0
 @twozerosix: The company I'm at switched to fusion for a lot of projects a little more than a year ago and I can confirm that solidworks is better at surfacing than it. I've actually had to step things into solidworks because fusion couldn't comprehend the features I was trying to use (one of which being a simple patched hole). I agree that solidworks can be a pain sometimes and they always seem to be more intent on adding new "wizard" features instead of fixing problems, but we thought the grass would be greener and it wasn't. Fusion would have to go back to the drawing board to be better than solidworks. Everything from joints to the design history is seriously flawed. The one nice thing is having the functionality of HSM built in at no extra cost.
  • 1 0
 @taquitos: thanks for the insights! Whole-sale switchover sounds like a nightmare. We had three seats of F360 for our group to try out and nobody really wanted to get into it.

  • 1 0
 @twozerosix: The upfront cost is definitely much lower, but you get what you pay for. I actually did the math once and solidworks only has to be something like 2% more efficient to pay for itself, which it definitely is. If I didn't have access to solidworks and wanted to do some personal projects I would use fusion, but when you're billing hours to jobs it starts to not add up. Oh and it doesn't really have any form of revision control.

There, I said it. It probably weighs the same as the carbon frame (or less), is environmentally a no brainer to recycle, and is cheaper to manufacture and buy. If you live in Canada, you are also supporting workers in Que., who as of now still make some alloy Devinci frames in Canada.

 I just wish the top tube, and the down tube sizes were alternated. The top tube is in compression, and the down tube is in tension, so it makes more sense, but pretty much every bike is made opposite.

 When these are going for $3k CAD for aluminium, and ~$4.5k CAD for the carbon let me know. Otherwise just another overpriced piece of MTB.

52,5mm metric trunnion shock. Please don’t.
Too short for a aggressive bike. I prefer the 2016 version.
  • 2 0
 It had a 50mm stroke on the previous model.
  • 1 1
 Why? How does it affect you? What does it matter if your shock by the same manufacturer/same model has one or the other dimensions? If it fits the bike, that is all you need. There will be aftermarket kits for it, aftermarket shock options, etc.

 Why isn't the downtube straight, from headtube to BB, and pick up the lower shock mount in the process?

 Super Boost Plus?! WTF?
  • 4 3
 Relax, its 157 dh but with tongue in cheek name to send the less informed into exposing auto-rage-because-no-clue...
  • 4 4
 @feeblesmith: it's a fkd up version of 157DH since it creates even more imbalance in the spoke triangulation and tension. it's basically a 157DH with non drive side flange being offseted as far to the rotor mounting tabs as possible. I don't know how someone with engineering degree, working on bike parts as his job can come up with such a stupid thing.

So if anybody with such frame wonders, yes go for 157DH.

 So superboost is happening whether we like it or not. Awesome. Two of my bikes, that are current year still on shop floors are obsolete. Thank you bike industry.

 relax sunshine, your bike is fine.. just keep riding it.

 @laxguy: Exactly. The crying about this is getting to be a joke. Plenty of folks out there riding 6 year old bikes and killing it. If you are buying a bike for resell, you are not doing it right
  • 10 1
 When new technology happens, it doesn't make your bike STOP working, or stop being rad. Only you can make your bike no longer be cool. It happens when you neglect it, and stop riding. It happens when you only comment negatively towards new technology you are afraid to test out, and try. Nothing is made obsolete because something different comes out. That's like saying my 2004 Wrangler isn't going to be able to wheel off road because a new Jeep was released, and that it won't hold it's value because a 4 door came out in 2007, and since then, new engine improvements have been implemented, and again, a new JL model has been released. My Wrangler still goes off road, it still gets me to work, and will continue to function well for years.

 @bman33: I just bought a used stumpy which is my first frame that doesn't have 135x10 dropouts. 142x12 will be a huge boost for me!

 @dan23dan23: you can still get aftermarket support for your 2004 Wrangler. Good luck finding parts for a 2004 bike.

I have no problem with new technology. I have a problem with planned obsolescence

 @wibblywobbly:

"Nobody panics when things go "according to plan"... even if the plan is horrifying. If tomorrow I told the press that, like, a gang-banger will get shot, or a truck load of soldiers will be blown up, nobody panics, because it's all part of the plan.

But when I say that one little old hub standard will die... well, then everyone loses their minds!

Introduce a little anarchy. Upset the established order, then everything becomes...chaos. I'm an agent of chaos. Oh, and you know the thing about chaos? It's fair."

 Trump-voter rock/rap, completely unnecessary sliding and skidding on trails because f*** you trail builders, pointless sorta manuals poorly executed, Toyota Tacoma cameo, drone-shot B-roll footage to double the run time, and all of it shot on what looks like a gravel double track made for beginners that saw a few unfortunate rock slides.
