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. Now for 2016, the Troy gets a full revamp, and believe it or not, it's also dropped in price. The quality and value delivered with this bike is hard to match, and it's still hand-built at Devinci's factory in Quebec.

With trail bikes trending towards longer top tubes, Devinci followed suit and tweaked the geometry on the 2016 Troy. The top tube is now 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. Devinci opted to keep the 2016 Troy at 140mm rear suspension travel to keep the well-rounded nature of the bike. When we first rode the 2016 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°. 

New for 2016, the Troy is now sporting a Boost 12x148mm rear end, which Devinci claims stiffens the rear swingarm and improves chainline. Although it's a fairly new standard, the entire industry is heading that way, and this will be the new normal by 2017. Other details on the bike include a BB92 bottom bracket shell and ISCG '05 chainguide tabs.


  • Slit Pivot Suspension
    Dave Weagle’s patented Split Pivot technology. Today it represents the core of Devinci’s full-suspension line-up. The genius of the Split Pivot suspension system is that it works in conjunction with you—the rider—for intuitive performance and a fully customizable feel. It harmonizes and maximizes bump compliance, traction, and efficiency—factors that are normally at odds with each other. The result is a buttery smooth ride with hyperactive small bump compliance and podium-crushing pedal stroke efficiency. The system is called Split Pivot because of its concentric rear dropout pivot built in line with the rear wheel axle, but there’s more to it than that.

    The concentric rear dropout pivot, along with precise swing arm and linkage pivot placement, heightens performance to a level where rider action and bike reaction all meld into one. When you pedal, the bike rockets forward; when you corner, the bike nails your lines; when you brake, the bike maintains traction. Simple. Forget about shock lockouts, this superior blend of traction and efficiency heightens performance across all disciplines so you can focus on the ride.

    How Does Split Pivot Work?
    The beauty of the concentric dropout pivot design is that it separates acceleration forces from braking forces within the suspension system. This is achieved through precise pivot placement, whereby braking neutrality is tuned independently of acceleration characteristics. Suspension feel can be tuned by varying leverage ratio curves in a wide range of options to suit various riding disciplines.

    Split Pivot Testing and Tuning
    Designing a bike blueprint and manufacturing it from raw materials is only the first step in the process. In addition to cutting-edge features, rear shocks on Split Pivot models are custom tuned by Dave Weagle—in collaboration with world-class suspension manufacturers and skilled test pilots—to extract every last lick of traction, efficiency, and performance. This customized tuning is key to ensuring that every shock works in synchronicity with the Split Pivot, thus providing unreal feel and a ride you won’t want to quit.

  • Full Response Geometry
    FRG designs put riders in the best possible position on the bike. FRG bikes are quick and aggressive at lower speeds, demonstrate rock-solid stability at high speeds, and its low stand-over height gives bikes a nimble feel. Whether you're pedaling uphill or railing downhill singletrack, FRG guarantees precise handling and excellent power transfer. Devinci possesses possibly the best research and development minds in the bike industry. Years of experience testing competition mountain bikes and experimental rigs outfitted with cutting edge data-collecting instrumentation has lead to Full Response Geometry (FRG) engineering for cross-country frames, as well as FRG Adjustable tech for full-suspension mountain bikes.
