Django: Unchained

The New Devinci Django hits the market today.
Order yours now to insure ASAP delivery.

The Django is our shorter travel trail rig with 120mm of buttery smooth rear travel and a 67.5 head tube angle.

Less is more.

Bikerumor.com's take here.
'“Climbs like an XC bike, descends like a DH” is becoming pretty cliché already, but these days that’s what every company wants you to think about their all-mountain/enduro/trail bike. As the industry moves towards shorter travel do-everything bikes the onus is on the designers to do more with less, and somehow maintain the fun and versatility of a bigger bike while shedding the bulk of yesteryear.'

Read the Pinkbike.com launch review here.
'Coming to the realisation that the latest EWS proven 160mm travel machine would be pure overkill for most of us and the terrain we encounter at our local trails, and choosing a more appropriate option for our immediate needs is a wake-up call that more and more of us are coming around to. This was the precise reason that the team at Devinci designed the Django. While fast and aggressive riders might feel that a bit under gunned on rough-and-ready trails, those looking for a bike to hammer out the miles at their local trail centre and have some fun along the way, will like what they find.' - Olly Forster

Troy Lee Design 2016 Bike Line

The Troy Lee Designs 2016 Bike Line is now avaiable.
This is the best line up yet from TLD!
New styles, more colors, refined designs, and some sweet new protection highlight this year's offerings.
See it live on the TLD website here.
Pinkbike launch here.
'I get asked all the time; "Troy, where do you get your design inspiration from?" and I have to pause, because I am surrounded by so many creative outlets, whether it is new carbon bikes, motorcycles, artists, paint colors, the list goes on and on. This year for our bicycle line I felt inspired with what I saw on the trail and in the wild. My youngest kids are riding their bikes a lot more and seeing the ride experience through their eyes is like a bicycle rebirth for me - I am loving it. From our family rides on our local Laguna Beach trails, to the big pilgrimage we make to Whistler, Canada, I find inspiration in the shapes and colors that are all over outdoors... they say you have to stop and smell the roses, it's very true. Inspiration also comes from our amazing athletes we are partnered with all over the world. They racked up more wins and exposure for us than we ever could have imagined. The athletes push us daily to innovate and create-that inspires us. But ultimately, your safety, comfort and style is my priority, which always pushes us the most and we at TLD have done an incredible job bringing you another year of riding equipment for 2016. I hope you enjoy it and hope to see you on the trails!' -Troy Lee, owner of Troy Lee Designs

DGR 2016 Team Press Release

Devinci Global Racing drops into a new season of savage battles with a dangerous roster of familiar and new faces for 2016. Team manager Gabe Fox says the talent-rich lineup is one of the strongest, fastest in DGR history. “I’m looking for these pros to feed off each other and look forward to regular podium appearances,” he adds. “Get ready for an exciting one.” 

Governing the gravity charge for a sixth straight season, Former World Cup Champion Steve Smith is on a mission to repeat. And following two years of sidelining injuries, he’s spent the winter attacking tracks and getting back to race-winning form. 

“I’ve had an awesome offseason, with tons of riding, training, physio and doing everything I can to better myself—both physically and mentally,” Smith says. 
“The mental game is essential to racing and there’s a huge difference between ‘wanting’ to win and ‘knowing’ you can. I’m more excited to be back racing than I’ve ever been.” 

Joining Smith in the hunt for DH dominance are Mark Wallace and rookie Norwegian Brage Vestavik. Wallace enters 2016 on the smoking wheels of a breakout season that included capturing 6th place at the Mont-Sainte-Anne World Cup and a massive 2nd place finish at Crankworx. Seventeen-year-old Vestavik, on the other hand, is a Hafjell Bike Park mainstay, who’s been crushing podiums in Norway since he was knee-high to a Viking’s battleaxe. Look for him to unleash that arsenal of potential across the JR World Cup calendar this year. 

Alongside the gravity team, DGR’s enduro squad will be rallying hard on the Enduro World Series (EWS) stage. Frenchman Damien Oton, the 2014 EWS overall 2nd place finisher, returns hungry after a strong start to last season veered off-course due to a string of minor injuries. “I’m amped for the season opener in Chile,” Oton says. “Consistency in all ten events will be the key to winning the championship.” Fellow Frenchman Theo Galy accompanies Oton on his EWS quest and at other special events around the globe. Finally, three young development riders will also race select events with DGR in 2016: Magnus Manson (gravity), Stu Dickson (enduro), and Luke Dimarzo (enduro/XC). 

The UCI World Cup season detonates in April, when the DH team travels to Lourdes, France. And in March, the EWS squad sets its sites on the first test of the season at Valdivia, Chile. 

Reliable, cutting-edge equipment is crucial to race-day success and Devinci Global Racing’s handpicked partners are industry leaders in their respective categories, giving team riders the best chance to land on the podium. For 2016, DGR is proudly supported by Cycles Devinci, Sram, RockShox, Maxxis, Raceface, Fox Racing, ODI, SDG, E-13, Hit Case, Crankbrothers, Scratch Labs, Maxima, Biknd, FSA, Five Ten, 2Undr, and Projekt.

They also both added a few millimeters to their interior width.

These days folks are saying 'wider is better', but is there such a thing as too wide? 
What about tire width vs. rim width?
