Since its debut in 2011, the Devinci Wilson has been their go-to gravity rig. Now, that downhill bike that showed itself as a team-only 29er prototype earlier this year has become official. The 2019 Devinci Wilson 29er is additive, it joins the 27.5″ wheeled version as an option, giving riders of all sizes and preferences a podium-topping option.
The frame uses a made-in-Canada 6066-T6 aluminum front triangle and chainstays with full carbon seatstays. Suspension moves on a Split Pivot design, keeping the rear axle and rear pivot at the same place. To get the suspension to provide a full 204mm of travel, the lower forward chainstay mount drops below the (threaded, FTW) BB, so they’ve added a carbon bash plate that extends off the frame and below the BB shell.
An adjustable chip at the upper shock mount gives you half a degree of adjustment, changing head angles from 62º to 62.5º and seat angles from 63º to 63.5º. BB height changes from 353mm to 360mm.
The shock itself sits low and passes through seat tube, keeping the center of gravity extra low. Standover’s also let, and they make it in sizes from Small to XL in 29er trim.
Look for two complete bike builds, the Wilson 29 XO1 DH for $6,449 and the GX DH build for $4,199. A frameset will retail for $2,279.
