First Impressions – 2016 Devinci Troy

Gear Editor, Ryan Palmer gets an exclusive taste of Devinci's updated Troy

When we found out that Devinci might have a new version of its 140-millimeter bike, the Troy, at Crankworx Whistler, and that the bike's updated geometry included a longer top tube, shorter chainstays, Boost 148 rear end and a more progressive shock rate, we were intrigued. With a bit of sweet-talking from Bike's editor in chief, the guys at Devinci agreed to build up one of the few pre-production frames in existence for us to have a shred on. And shred it we did. We’re excited about the changes to this 140-mil whip, but we’ll have to wait until November 2015 before our next taste of the 2016 Devinci Troy.
