The Troy has been Devinci’s go-to, aggressive trail and all-mountain bike since 2014. Today, Devinci has a new version out and buyers can get it with 29-inch wheels or stick with the 27.5 wheels that the Troy is known for.
On the 140mm travel frame, the Troy keeps the fifth generation split pivot design. All of the builds are paired with a Rock Shox Deluxe, either in Deluxe RT3 Debonair or a Deluxe RL, and come stock with one volume token in the shock.
Up front, the Troy has options for a 140mm travel Rock Shox Revelation, a 150mm Rock Shox Pike, or a 160mm travel Rock Shox Lyrik, depending on the build. All forks come standard with a volume spacer, so it seems that progressive suspension feel will be a hallmark for the Troy.
Geometry has changed slightly for the new edition also. The last generation switched between a 67-degree and a 67.4-degree head angle and a 74.5-74.9-degree seat angle in low or high mode.
This year, the seat angle is basically the same, except that it’s 75-degrees in the high setting. The head angle is quite a bit slacker, though: it’s 66-degrees in the low mode and 66.5 in the high mode.
The chainstays are a short 425mm to 432mm on the 27.5 and 29-inch models, respectively, and the post mounts in the rear can fit up to a 180mm rotor.
The Devinci rear end is spaced with Super Boost 157, which is said to increase stiffness without increasing the Q-factor and requiring a new bottom bracket size. The rear triangle will also accommodate a 2.4-inch wide tire, no matter if it’s a 27.5 or a 29er. Speaking of the bottom bracket, Devinci has gone back to threaded for the updated Troy.
At the high end, a SRAM X01 Eagle option will get buyers a 27.5 or 29er model with a 150mm Rock Shox Pike, Maxxis Minions, Race Face Next carbon wheels, an X01 Eagle drivetrain, and SRAM Guide RSC brakes for $8,800.
Aluminum models of the Troy are slated to be their most inexpensive build option. These will be available in the fall. The base option will include a SRAM NX Eagle drivetrain, a 150mm Rock Shox Revelation, SRAM Guide T brakes, a TranzX dropper, and Maxxis Minion 3C, tubeless-ready tires front and back for $3,200.
All carbon models are expected to be available for purchase through dealers now.
