Devinci's World Cup downhill racers have been on the new Wilson 29 all season (Dakotah Norton even scored a podium position in Croatia), but until recently it wasn't available to the general public. That's no longer the case, and the aluminum / carbon framed bike has officially been released. We sat down with Julien Boulais, Devinici's brand manager, to find out more about this new DH machine.
There are plenty of full-carbon DH bikes on the market, but Devinici took a slightly different route with the Wilson. The majority of the frame is aluminum, and made in Canada, while the oversized seatstays are made from carbon fiber. The frame also has a lifetime warranty, which is always nice to see, especially on a downhill bike where aggressive riding is a certainty.

Wheel size: 29" (27.5" version available)
