PRESS RELEASE: Cycles Devinci
For 2018, riders of the Unior/Devinci Factory Racing Team will tackle the world’s toughest courses on the newest rendition of our podium-proven Wilson. This bike was developed specifically for UDFR riders to race on the World Cup circuit and will not be part of the Devinci product lineup for 2018. USA-based UDFR rider Dakotah Norton is currently preparing for his first Pro GRT race of the season this coming weekend at Windrock Bike Park, TN, and this is the race bike he’s been practising on for the past few months.
Dakotah uses Sram X01DH cranks with 165mm crankarms and a 34T Sram X-Sync chainring paired with a Sram PG-795 10-24T Cassette.
He has worked closely with Rock Shox technicians over the last few weeks to dial in his optimal suspension set-up.
The Wilson 29er uses the metric shock standard and Dakotah is on the Rock Shox Super Deluxe WC with a 450lb-spring with a thrust bearing.
Dakotah uses a 35mm rise cut down to 800mm, and uses an external reach extension headset.
Code RSC brakes from Sram on stopping duties, with lever positioned a little bit lower than neutral.
Many riders want the bars as low as possible on a 29er DH bike, but Dakotah goes the opposite way and uses the "high rise" version of the Race Face SixC bars. This setup gives him a more upright position that relieves hand pressure and results in better brake modulation. The bars are in a slightly forward position with Lizard Skins Charger lock-on grips to finish off the build.
