Devinci has always been well-known in the downhill world, and although they have branched out into several segments of the cycling industry, it's safe to say they still have very strong roots in the gravity segment. The Wilson 275 Alloy has been around for a couple of years now, proving itself as a steed worthy of riders such as Steve Smith, Mark Wallace, and Kenny Smith. Devinci is no stranger to carbon downhill bikes. In fact, they were one of the first to mass produce a carbon DH bike with the previous 26" Wilson several years back. Given that was the case, it was easy to expect Devinci would follow suit with the Wilson 275. Although it took a bit longer than anticipated, the Wilson 275 Carbon is here, and it's built to take on the most demanding downhill tracks you can throw at it.

Devinci believe they have nailed the geometry and design of this bike, making the most of the 27.5" wheel size. It's important to note that this not a bike that has just been tweaked to stuff 27.5" wheels into a frame designed for 26" wheels. Devinci knew that this would require a complete re-design of their proven Wilson chassis. The design of the bike still builds upon the same unique pull-link Split-Pivot suspension design. The shock placement has changed though, with the upper end now mounted to the downtube instead of the toptube. This keeps the center of gravity even lower than it was on the previous 26" Wilson. Low center of gravity means more control through corners, and a more stable bike overall. The shock size has also been reduced from 10.5" x 3.5" to 9.5" x 3". With the larger wheel size, it became apparent that perhaps 8.5" of travel was a bit overkill. Travel has been reduced to 8" (204mm) from 8.5" (216mm) on the previous Wilson. This change not only saves weight by using a smaller shock, it also allowed the engineers to place that shock exactly where they needed. The shock is mounted to a similar rocker link as previously used, but it is now tucked up into the frame over the BB shell, which allowed Devinci to keep the chainstay relatively short, despite the larger wheel size. The resulting chainstay length on the Wilson 275 is roughly only 8mm longer than the previous 26" Wilson.

At the heart of the bike, the Wilson’s main pivot location delivers enhanced square-edged bump compliance, cornering feel, and pedaling performance. Dave Weagle's Split Pivot design delivers a transparent feel where suspension, braking, and acceleration work in harmony for a more efficient and fun ride. Embracing this balance, the Wilson provides a buttery smooth ride with explosive pedal power. The Wilson uses a unique splined ISCG '05 unit that seats onto the 83mm BB shell. It is fully removable from the frame, so it can be replaced at any time. This means you can use taco-style chainguides with no worries. If you manage to crack or bend your ISCG tab, you can simply pop it off and toss a new one on. This splined tab also allows you to fine tune chainguide alignment.

The Wilson uses a new post-mount 200mm rear brake tab, meaning only 200mm rear rotors are compatible with this bike. You can fit a 203mm if you install a couple of small washers between the brake caliper and the tab. Other bells and whistles include hydroformed frame tubing, a downtube skidplate, and internal swingarm derailleur cable routing.

The Wilson Caron 275 XP comes decently equipped with a SRAM X7 10-speed drivetrain, Rock Shox Boxxer RC fork, SRAM Guide R brakes, and DT Swiss wheels. Full specs can be viewed at the right. The Wilson 275 Carbon is backed by Devinci's legendary lifetime warranty.

Features

  • 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.

  • Devinci Monocoque Carbon
    Enter DMC Gravity technology and a carbon repertoire for rides built to flow fast and smooth in rock-ravaged environments. Mountain-specific Devinci Carbon Monocoque G technology uses cross-hatched and unidirectional carbon fiber layers, bolstered by high-strength epoxy resins and finished with a blast of Nano powder additive. This Devinci-exclusive recipe equates to ultra-lightweight frames, fine-tuned for knockout strength. Stand on the pedals, batten down the hatches, and watch dirt get demolished. DMC G. World Cup annihilator and Steve Smith approved.

    All carbon frames are not built equal. Scratch that. Some just stand so tall above the rest, it’s dizzying. Devinci’s state-of-the-art, handmade carbon frames have achieved stratospheric status via an advanced stiffness tuning process. The formula involves harmonizing and hybridizing high-strength carbon fiber with high-modulus strains, while integrating numerous customized patterns in the layup process. The result is a fine-tuned tensile balance that combines the best of pedal-power stiffness with rock-stomping durability for premiere carbon performance. Devinci Stiffness Tuning. For the ultimate carbon blend—where and when it matters most.

    Devinci merges bladder molding with advanced silicone insert technologies for precision carbon monocoque construction across all facets of the frame. The result is a buttery smooth architecture, inside and out—far surpassing one-dimensional bladder construction builds. Bladder molding is used during the layup process to guarantees a flawless fit for simpler parts. For more complex junctions, such as head tubes and bottom brackets, silicone-insert technology is the new standard for superior carbon compaction. In addition, the removable silicon insert ensures that adequate and even pressure is applied to the smallest, most intricate sections. This multitier carbon build process results in not only a lighter frame, but a completely synched ride built for ultimate, all-terrain performance.

  • 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.
