Updated Rowdy Trail Bike

The new Devinci Troy builds on the aggressive nature of the previous version.

The Troy has always leaned toward the more aggressive end of the trail bike spectrum. This generation is no exception. Devinci updated the frame with double-row linkage bearings for improved stiffness and durability.

The Devinci Troy gets small but meaningful geometry updates.

The frame angles were also adjusted to in order to keep this 140mm brawler on course with the competition. The new Devinci Troy gets a 15mm longer reach, a one-degree slacker head angle, and a steeper seat tube angle.

The Troy’s flip chip has been moved from the upper linkage to the lower shock link.

The Troy’s geometry can be further tweaked to suit rider preference by flipping the geometry-adjusting chip conveniently located at the lower shock mount.

Chainstay lengths grow as frame size increases.

In order to provide a consistent rider experience across all four frame sizes, Devinci updated the Troy with size-specific chainstays lengths.
