Hypersonic Blur: Kenny Smith on the Devinci Troy - Video

by Cycles Devinci  


A boy and his Troy—Devinci ambassador and Squamish-based gravity gangster Kenny Smith recently requested a test drive of the all-new all-mountain Troy. So we packaged up a bike and sent a cameraman to capture the fun. The result? See for yourself as Smith smashes berms, points it down precipitous rock faces, and turns B.C.’s loamy rainforest into a hypersonic blur.

 Have always respected Kenny Smith's riding but wasn't til we went camping on a Chilcotin MTB mission that I learned how funny he can be too!! He literally dropped me to the ground laughing our faces off doing comedy voices before descending thousands of feet of wicked terrain!! #ellosedeverto Keep rocking bro!!

 . I can't even imagine that air he does into and out of the middle rock face on that gouranga rock roll. That's f*cking intense. Awesome edit!

 Stick the f*^k to the track, Troy. Or you'll be getting us all banned...

 Yeah. Cutting switchbacks is a no-no on every trail, for every user. And three shots of an air to off-trail landing might be overkill for just a blown turn?

Sure the guy is rad, and those trails look fun, but the edits are not responsible stewardship. Maybe its just a hotter issue where I'm from...

 @WeakenedWarrior: There's a bit of leeway here in Squamish. Pallet fires on the reg

 @blanshard16: But kids elsewhere see this behavior and try to emulate it. Not cool in places where we fight to keep access, less like squamish that promotes mtb's...

 I've spent a ton of time riding in squam with a lot of locals and I would have to disagree that riding like that is accepted as ok. @blanshard16:

 :24 locked rear brake cutting switchbacks skidding and destroying the vegetation between them in slowmo... Cutting switchbacks is not accepted anywhere, even worse when you lock your rear brake and trash the vegetation between them.

 Kenny kills it a 110% all the time! Such an awesome rider Smile

 Split pivot, wheel size, head angle, components, all the things that go into making this an awesome bike, the one that gets me most is I think the looks killer. I for some reason like the way bikes look with a vertical shock. Guess that's why I'm still rocking an Iron Horse........... jeez... time to upgrade.

 Great riding and solid edit but a Kenny Smith clip without fire, zombies and metal just isn't right.

 Sick riding! My eyes could be deceiving me but that looks like a massive split on the bottom of the downtube. Photoshop that out!

 It's an internal routing cable port!
  • + 2
 @sovereigncycle: LoL that was the other guess.... but I talked myself out of it because I thought ports on the outside of the downtube were a thing of the past. Anywho, sick riding!

 Pike 29er on the front by the looks of it. I like the idea of a super slack mid travel bike. Wonder what the head-angle is with that set up

 Looks like 67 -> 66.2 if still 150.

 Or 26" wheels on a 27.5 frame
