Devinci’s 2013 Carbon Atlas

The Atlas is the 29er counterpart to Devinci’s all-mountain Dixon line. The bike combines Dave Weagle’s patented Split Pivot suspension with the improved rollover traits of a 29-inch wheel platform. For 2013, Devinci offers the Atlas in carbon as well as aluminum. Perhaps the biggest story, in a sense, with the Atlas is its incredibly short rear end. The bike sports 16.85-inch chainstays; that’s short by any measure and it lends the Atlas a snappy, agile feel in the tightest of conditions.
