Key Points

  • New 120mm travel trail bike from Devinci
  • Adjustable geometry on 650b wheels
  • Similar geometry to the 140mm Troy

What’s this then?

Meet the latest addition to the Devinci line up – the Django. Like every bike in the Devinci range (Troy, Wilson, Spartan, Hendrix) it’s named after a famous figure, this time it’s Quentin Tarantino’s hyper-violent runaway slave from Django Unchained, but will this be Inglorious or a Natural Born Killer?

What can you tell me about it?

Devinci was missing a short travel trail bike from its line up so it’s no surprise its been quick on the draw with the Django. It sits nicely between the 140mm Troy and the 110mm Hendrix but unlike other brands in this space, Devinci has not been swayed into mounting it on 29 inch wheels. Despite this, it still uses the Boost standard, presumably to keep the wheels stiffer.

Who’s it for?

The Devinci Django comes with the usual “one bike to do everything” spiel you might expect from a model like this but with a geometry that’s similar to its burlier big brother, the Troy, you can expect it to be aimed at a the gravity end of the trail market.

The geometry is adjustable between Hi and Lo settings but you’re looking at a head angle of 67.5-68°, a seat tube angle of 74.5/ 75° and a wheelbase of 1175mm for a large.
