Ever since “Trail”, “All-Mountain” and just about any other type mountain bike made for things other than cross-country became popular, things just keep getting more and more fun. Sure, downhill and all things “Enduro” are great, but unless you’re privy to aggressive descents, oodles of travel just isn’t necessary.
But traction always is, and when paired with 120mm of efficient travel, a bike can play a beautiful tune. The new Devinci Hendrix RS 27.5+ hits the right notes with an orchestra of plush Split Pivot suspension and oversized tires…
The Hendrix mixes a trail worthy 120mm of travel with Devinci’s Optimum GO4 Aluminum frame and the familiar Split Pivot suspension. By adding the low pressure, rock hugging 27.5 x 3.0 rubber to the mix, and stiffer wheels thanks to Boost 110/148 axle spacing, the bike’s ready for rougher terrain than the travel might suggest.
To make things even more flexible, the Hendrix also uses Devinci’s Hi/Lo frame settings via an eccentric pivot that is simple to change depending on your preference.
The Hendrix RS comes with a respectable build that includes SRAM’s GX 1×11 drivetrain and Rockshox suspension. It will also be offered as a frame only and will be available in November.
