Just two years after Devinci last redid the all-mountain Troy trail bike, adding 29-inch wheel options, they have a clean slate again. The 2021 Troy sticks with 140mm of rear travel with improved clearance in the SuperBoost 157mm-spaced rear triangle. A 29×2.6″ tire can fit between the stays now.
Devinci is still using the Split-Pivot suspension platform, now with a trunnion-mounted shock. Devinci has also changed the way they’re sizing chain stays on the new Troy. Sizes XS to M will have 435mm-long chain stays, size L will have 440mm, and chain stays on the XL frames get an additional 5mm of length.
Also on the geometry front, the new Troy has a flip chip with a Hi/Lo mode that changes things by a half-degree. On the new medium Troy in Lo mode, the bike has a 77.5° seat angle, and a 65° head angle with 460mm of reach. The wheelbase is a lengthy 1215mm.
On the frame, Devinci is using double-row, double-lip sealed linkage bearings, which the brand says aids movement and longevity. Devinci added an ISCG-mounted chain guide and a molded polyurethane protector on the down tube heading into the bottom bracket to keep rocks at bay. There is a threaded bottom bracket for easier maintenance.
Riders who hope to buy the Troy as a frame only may be bummed that they won’t easily be able to swap a dropper post from the old model, as Devinci is using a 34.9mm seat tube diameter. The brand says this reduces post flex.
The new Troy is available in both full carbon and aluminum with a few different build options on each. Devinci has an aluminum Troy with Shimano Deore 12-speed starting at $2,800. At the high end, Devinci specs the carbon Troy with a 12-speed Shimano XT groupset and Fox suspension. Available online at JensonUSA and evo.
