EUROBIKE 2015 | Devinci Hendrix and Troy

The Canadian company Devinci descended on Eurobike with the objective of unveiling the Hendrix, their brand new plus-sized fully, as well as a revised model of the Troy in its new carbon incarnation.

Devinci Hendrix

The Hendrix is Devinci’s very first plus-size bike, featuring 120 mm front and rear travel like ant classic trail bike. For suspension, the Hendrix makes use of the familiar Split Pivot system, which has appeared on many of Devinci’s other full-sus models. The rear boasts the Boost 148 rear axle standard, which creates enough space for tyres up to 3.0”.
