One of Canada’s finest exports (the other is undoubtedly maple syrup), Devinci bikes are riding a wave of love at the moment, driven by the exploits of World Cup downhiller Stevie Smith. The new Spartan is Devinci’s 160mm-travel, 27.5″-wheeled, Enduro-ready machine and its origins flow directly from the World Champs race bike that Steve Smith rode in Pietermaritzburg last year.
The Spartan is built with a carbon seat stay assembly, but alloy everywhere else, thought a full carbon version of this bike will be coming to Oz in the very near future (see the vid below for more). Dave Weagle’s Split Pivot suspension design is well-proven now, delivering 160mm of travel via a Rockshox Monarch Plus shock.
Geometry is adjustable with a simple shock mount/chip system. In the slackest setting, the held angle is an outta-my-way 65.8 degrees, and 66.4 degrees in the steeper position. Full geometry is listed below, and the frame weight is around 3.5kg.
