Devinci's downhill beast feels comfy from the initial pedal stroke. The brief 430-millimeter chainstays coupled with the low standover instilled self-confidence to throw this bike around on tough surface. For a downhill bike, the Wilson pedals efficiently, and also cranking from corners was easy and pleasurable in contrast to a few of the various other DH bikes we tested.

And also, since the bike really feels so spirited and also intends to go-hard/go-sideways/keep-going, you end up observing its mass. You begin to obtain comfy, you begin to push the bike difficult and afterwards you start obtaining tired out.

The structure is currently offered with the 216-millimeter RockShox Vivid R2C rear shock, and Whistler-born-and-bred Chromag gets approval for bars and also stem this year.

Weighing in at 40 pounds (with pedals and also tubes, right out of package) this bike is significantly in the heavyweight category.
