Our testers loved the bike's adjustability and the linkage's all-bump sensitivity. A few of our testers felt that it was only as soon as you rose to speed on 'big-boy' surface that you could fully understand the Scott Gambler's true personality, but I found it to be an immensely lively and enjoyable bike long before you got to greater speeds. Its toughness, rigidity and character would make it as much a park bike as a racing beast.
The wheelbase is long at 1,230 millimeters, but the chainstays are a short 432 millimeters, which allows you to dedicate to the front wheel more than several bikes, as well as it still feels responsive. We did doubt the high standover. Such crotch touching is a normal characteristic of GT bikes that we want would transform.
Every little thing about this bike screams beefy, from the double-welded T6 6061 hydroformed tubeset to the swingarm that would certainly make a motocross bike envious. Housed because robust swingarm is a 150 x 12 through-axle and also Nukeproof's interchangeable dropout inserts that enable you to adjustchainstay length from 435 to 445 millimeters.
The Fury has actually gone through an extreme transformation. It dropped its carbon skin and also 'went back' to a light weight aluminum framework. This is not just cheaper and much less taxing compared to carbon, yet permits kinematics and also geometries to be changed throughout advancement. That doesn't imply the current version isn't really a lot more progressive as well as innovative compared to it ever before has actually been. In fact, the majority of the testers felt this Fierceness was an enhancement over previous designs.
One of the hardest facets of screening gravity-oriented bikes is locating a course that genuinely presses these beefy beasts to their real capacity. And even after that, discovering a trail that straddles the great line between the spontaneity of freeride and the calculated imperative of DH-racing speed can be a complex task. Did our testers locate the Devinci Wilson Carbon RC to be a bike with one wheel in each of these worlds? Find out in today's 2014 Bible of Bike Tests 'Roundtable Reels' video.
Nonetheless, we had plenty of time to readjust our riding style to match the Bettor and what we discovered was a bike that, once you 'd understood it, seemed like a friend ... one that likes to cut loose and trigger havoc all too often.
