Django Carbon Mountain Bike Frame
The Django Carbon Mountain Bike Frame is DeVinci's jack-of-all-trades trail bike, designed to attack the trail with speed and precision using the sure-footedness of 29in wheels and the lively feel of the Split Pivot suspension design. With 120mm of rear travel that's designed to pair with a 140mm travel fork up front, this bike is capable of covering ground quickly but doesn't shy away from technical trail challenges. The geometry is well-balanced, providing the stability you need at higher speeds while delivering XC-bike efficiency on big rides with plenty of vertical gain. In addition, the geometry can be adjusted via a flip-chip that switches between Low and High settings, allowing you to tune the bike's handling for more capable descending, or for a little more efficiency on the climbs.
The trademark feature of DeVinci's full-suspension mountain bikes is the Dave Weagle-designed Split Pivot suspension. Dave Weagle is well known in the industry as the engineer behind DW-Link, and his designs deliver some of the best suspension characteristics on the market. Split Pivot's basic design consists of a main pivot and a concentric rear axle pivot separated by the chainstay (hence the name Split Pivot), as well as the brake link (seatstay) that floats between the concentric rear axle pivot and the rocker link that controls the shock. The floating brake link isolates braking forces from acceleration and suspension forces, resulting in uncompromising traction when you're charging across rough terrain—even while braking or pedaling. Many other designs have a tendency to firm up a bit under braking, reducing suspension sensitivity through choppy terrain and thus losing some traction. DeVinci's Split Pivot remains active, soaking up braking bumps and squared-edged hits effortlessly while retaining a supportive mid-stroke for pedaling, climbing, and popping off lips and rollers.
As we briefly mentioned above, the Django's geometry strikes a good balance between aggressive trail bike descending capabilities and XC-bike pedaling performance. The long reach figures give you a confident position for steeper descents, balanced by stubby 17-inch chainstays to keep the handling playful and nimble. In the Low geometry setting a 68-degree head tube angle and a 13.2-inch bottom bracket height provide the stability needed to confidently charge through rugged terrain, along with a lower center of gravity for precise cornering feel. If your upcoming ride consists of an all-day marathon of steep climbs and tight switchbacks, flip the suspension chip to the High setting to raise the bottom bracket 0.2-inches and steepen the head angle half a degree. This gives you a bit more control to put the front wheel where you need it, which is helpful for cross country riding.
Like DeVinci's other carbon bikes, the Django is constructed using their mountain bike specific DMC-G carbon lay-up. Using EPS molding, DeVinci creates a monocoque carbon frame with flawless consistency throughout the carbon layers, eliminating resin-pooling and inconsistencies that can negatively affect the strength of the frame. DeVinci puts a lot of emphasis on frame strength and rigidity, inspiring absolute confidence when you're smashing through technical terrain. It also allows DeVinci to offer a lifetime frame warranty to the original owner. The frame has internal cable routing for clean lines throughout, and even includes a dropper seatpost. The rear triangle allows clearance for up to a 2.6in tire, and its asymmetrical chainstays with Boost hub spacing deliver exceptional torsional stiffness for the frame and rear wheel.

- I've put it through the wringer
I’ve got the AL version of the Django 29 and I’ve been pushing the brand on all my buddies. While not this exact carbon I had to chime in and say how much I love this bike. Been riding since the early nineties and have been through a crap ton of rides, both boutique and mainstream ones but this is my most favorite since my ‘94 Yo Eddy hardtail. This bike, as cliche as it always sounds, does it all for me. Climbs without complaint and I only find myself flicking the lockout lever when I’m totally gassed and just need a little more help. Going down? Well first of all, this isn’t a park bike so I’m not going to pretend it is. But what it is is both stable when it needs to be and playful when it’s time to have fun. Hitting a rock garden too fast on other short travel rigs has always made me question why I’ve never taken up golf but on this? I could be sipping a latte as my wheels wend their way through the right line. It’s almost dumb ass proof. Almost. Tight SoCal switchbacks are also a breeze, which is awesome considering how stable it can also be. Just grab some rear brake and the front end pivots right around without a thought. Lips and berms? This thing eats it all up. I don’t know what the cats up in Quebec are putting in their poutine but I hope they keep it up. My only bummer about my AL is that it’s not carbon. Problem is I love it so much I can’t justify buying the carbon model. Buy this thing. You won’t regret it.

- I've used it several times
Just and FYI, I rode this bike set up with Eagle X01. The Django puts itself in that mid point/do it all/one bike quiver category, right there with the likes of the Ibis Riply, which is a bike I am a big fan of. As more of an XC oriented rider I tend to go a little smaller travel but have really been impressed with some of the middle offerings lately. I'm happy with the way the Django climbs, for something this slack it's not bad at all. It was more than capable for me coming down, very solid, almost a heavier feel, very surefooted. I don't think it climbed as well as the ripley, but pretty easy to pedal uphill in general. Pushing it around corners felt very natural at any speed, in the tight switchbacks it was simple to put around quickly. I was unfamiliar with Devinci until recently when I got to spend some time on the Django and would love to get out on it again. I'm comparing personally to the best bikes out there so it's impressive to me that this bike can hang with those.
