When Devinci released the Django earlier this year, it sported 27.5 wheels and 120mm of rear travel. It was a pint-sized trail bike designed to fill the gap vacated by the Troy, which had been given the long and slack treatment and turned into an all mountain machine.
As anyone who’s ridden a newer 29er knows, this short travel bike was screaming for the 29er treatment. Devinci was thinking along the same lines and this week launched the Django 29.
Like its smaller wheeled sibling, the new Django uses a 130mm fork and split pivot suspension. It also has stubby 17” chainstays, a 1x specific drivetrain, and clearance for up to a 2.35” tire. We’re also obligated to mention it has internal cable routing and boost hub spacing.
The geometry is adjustable via a flip chip at the rocker link and a headset cup. In the low setting, the frame has a 68-degree head angle and 336mm BB height, while the high setting adds half a degree to the head angle, and moves BB height to 341mm.
Frames will be available in four sizes: small, medium, large and extra large. Prices for an alloy complete start at $3099 for an NX drivetrain and dropper post. Upgrading to a GX drivetrain and to Fox Elite level fork, which features an improved damper will set you back $3599. Frame only retails for $1769. Claimed weight for the alloy frame is 8.1 pounds.
Prefer that plastic fantastic? The base level Django carbon costs $3800, while the premium version with SRAM Eagle will run you $6819. Retail for the carbon frameset is $2479. Claimed weight for the carbon frame is 6.8 pounds.
