It's safe to say that "enduro" bikes have made quite an impact on the mountain biking industry. Long travel, slack geometry, built to get you down anything you can throw at it. Many enduro races are flinging riders down trails that were previously full-fledged DH tracks just five years ago. Now that the enduro craze is calming down a bit, many people are finding that their slacked-out, 160mm travel monster-truck all mountain bike is slightly overkill for most everyday trail rides. And that's exactly where the Django fits in. The Django is Devinci's answer to the call for a snappy, short-travel, playful trail bike.
The Django is all about the fun factor. While long-travel enduro bikes have their place, they are still going to be a bit more work to muscle around. The Django is sporting 120mm travel, super short 16.7" chainstays, and relatively modest geometry. That translates to a very responsive bike that loves to play. Aside from the reduced travel and a slightly shorter top tube, the Django is strikingly similar to it's bigger brother, the 140mm-travel Troy. The rest of the geometry numbers are virtually identical between the two bikes. And that begs the question, why go with the Django over the Troy? It's really going to boil down to what you're looking for in a bike. If you already have a long travel enduro bike, and you're looking to add another bike to your fleet, the Django may be the perfect fit. It provides enough separation that it will be noticeably more nimble compared to a bike with more travel and aggressive geometry. While not classified as an enduro bike, the Troy is definitely approaching that genre of bike. It's a great do-it-all trail bike that will ascend and descend with confidence, but again, it won't be quite as nimble as the Django.
As with all Devinci bikes, the Django features adjustable geometry. Using flip chips located on the upper seatstay pivots, you can switch between high and low settings, adjusting head angle and BB height. The Django is designed to be used with forks ranging from 120mm - 140mm of travel. With a 130mm fork in the low geometry position, the head angle sits at a comfortable 67.5°, with a 13.1" BB height. Flip the chips to the high setting, and it steepens the head angle to 68° with a 13.4" BB height. A 140mm fork, such as the Pike, will slacken the head angle by about 0.7°, getting you into sub-67° territory.
Other details on the Django include full internal cable routing for dropper post, rear brake, and rear shifter. The Django does not have a front derailleur mount, so it is only compatible with 1X drivetrains. As with the Troy, the Django has 12x148mm Boost rear dropout spacing, as well as BB92 bottom bracket shell and ISCG '05 chainguide tabs.
