The Troy has been one of Devinci's most successful bikes over the last few years, and for good reason. It's simply well-balanced, playful in nature, and offers excellent value.
With trail bikes trending towards longer top tubes, Devinci follows suit with a top tube that's about an inch longer, standover height is an inch lower, chainstay is a quarter inch shorter, and the seat tube angle is two degrees steeper than the previous Troy. These all come as welcome changes, and have greatly improved ride quality and fit on the Troy. The frame is constructed from Devinci's DMC-G monocoque carbon, and features a more aggressive squared-off look, similar to that of the Spartan Carbon. The rear swingarm is composed of a carbon seatstay, and alloy chainstay. The main frame features full internal cable routing for brakes, rear derailleur, and internal dropper post. Devinci opted out of the front derailleur mount for the carbon Troy, so this bike can only be run with 1X drivetrains.
As with all Devinci full suspension bikes, the Troy is equipped with the tried-and-true Split Pivot platform. The Troy sports 140mm rear suspension travel, achieving the well-rounded, playful nature that we've grown to love from this bike. After a few rides on the Troy, we noticed just how active and supple the suspension felt - it really did feel like we were riding a bike with at least 10mm more travel. The longer top tube gives you an "in-the-bike" feel, and the Split Pivot suspension soaked up everything we could throw at it. Climbing on the Troy is a breeze, as we suspected from riding the previous Troy. The steeper seat tube puts you a bit more forward in the saddle, which is advantageous on the more technical and steep climbs. The Troy we rode had a 160mm Pike up front, and we didn't feel any need to lower the front end for climbing. Therefore, we'd venture to say that a travel adjustable fork is not needed on this bike.
True to form, the Troy 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 Troy is designed to be used with forks ranging from 150mm - 160mm of travel. With a 150mm fork and the low geometry position, the head angle sits at a comfortable 67.0°, with a 13.3" BB height. Flip the chips to the high setting, and it steepens the head angle to 67.5° with a 13.5" BB height. A 160mm fork, such as the Pike, will slacken the head angle by about 0.7°.
Other details include a Boost 12x148mm rear end, which Devinci claims stiffens the rear swingarm and improves chainline. The bike utilizes a BB92 bottom bracket shell and ISCG '05 chainguide tabs.
