The newly redesigned 2016 Devinci Troy is a bike that all of us here at Worldwide Cyclery were excited about building up and riding out on the trail. Once we had the Devinci Troy Carbon SX built up, we couldn’t help notice how aggressive this bike looks! From the matte carbon finish to the defined body lines on the frame, this bike definitely gets people looking.
The Devinci Troy sports 140mm of travel in the rear and 150mm of travel in the front and comes equipped with a Rockshox Pike RC fork and Monarch RT3 shock to keep the ride smooth and progressive. As for wheels and tires, it comes outfitted with the Maxxis Highroller II tires mounted on DT Swiss M1900 Spline wheels with a boost 12x148 rear hub and the standard 15x100 front hub. With the SRAM X1 drivetrain, SRAM Guide R brakes, and Centerline 160mm rotors, this bike is bound to be a killer out on the trail!
After getting the Troy all built up and ready to ride, you could tell the bike felt very nimble and stiff even just riding it around our shop parking lot. Before taking it out on the local trails, we dialed the shock sag in at 30% and the fork in at 20% as a baseline. The ride from the shop was pretty fun - being able to pull the front wheel up and manual the bike was pretty awesome to me since that is very much my riding style. I like a fun/playful bike that can attack jumps and not feel like you are pulling up an anchor when you try to lift the front wheel.
Once I had hit the trail, the bike climbed well in the unlocked setting on the rear shock and the only time I needed to switch it to the climb setting was when it got real steep and I wanted it as bob-free as possible. Up the switchbacks, the bike held great traction on the loose dirt and on the hard packed it was almost pulling the front wheel of the ground. As far as climbing goes, the bike was great, but where it really excelled was on the downhill flowy sections. The bike seemed very nimble and controllable. It was not hard to move the bike across ruts or tackle rock sections; it cornered great and was very predictable. The harder I rode this thing, the better it felt, especially through rock gardens and chunkier sections of the trail. All in all, this bike climbed very well and killed it on the descents!
The Devinci Troy is offered in multiple different builds at very affordable price points. The RS build which is the base carbon frame build retails at just $3499. This is a killer price for a bike this capable. The model we built up, the Troy SX, retails for $4999 and the top level build, the Troy RR, goes for $6599. These frames also offer a LIFETIME warranty. The Troy is meant to be ridden hard and Devinci fully backs their products by offering a lifetime warranty. The 2016 Devinci Troy also comes in an alloy frame with two different builds: The Troy S ($2599) and the Troy RS ($2999).
