Added a new video Introducing the Deviate Cycles Guide - A New Gearbox-Equipped Mountain Bike 11/23/2017 4:47 PM

UK-based Deviate Cycles is proud to unleash The Guide, a 160mm travel enduro bike built around the fully-sealed Pinion C-Line gearbox. The brand sings the praises of the gearbox and its 600% gear range, low and centralized mass, improved ground clearance, and less sprung weight for improved suspension performance. At under 33-pounds (15.0kg) this bike is among the lightest full-suspension gearbox bikes available. The frame uses a high pivot point for a rearward axle path and an idler for zero chain growth.


  • Full high modulus carbon fibre construction
  • 27.5″ (650b) wheel size
  • 160mm of rear wheel travel
  • Frame weight (size medium): 2782g | 12 Speed C-line Gearbox: 2100g
  • Supplied with highly tunable Cane Creek DBAir CS or DBAir Inline shock
  • Metric shock (210x55mm)
  • Pinion gearbox drivetrain (12 speed C-Line with Magnesium casing)
  • Integrated (and replaceable) chain tensioning system
  • Integrated (and replaceable) bash guard
  • Full internal cable routing
  • 31.6mm seatpost with internal cable routing
  • Enduro double row, angular contact, max fill bearings on all pivots
  • Twin lip wiper seals for all suspension pivots
  • Bonded rubber protection from rock strikes and chain slap
  • 2.7-inch tire clearance

Absolutely awesome! This video is why I still ride bikes as an adult. I get the same feeling riding at age 48 as I did sending my team murry from jc penny back in 1978. Props to Kathy for hanging on to this footage for all these years. Cheers!

Added a new video Native to New Zealand - Keegan Wright Stars in Episode 1 of 'The Wright Line' 11/20/2017 10:34 PM

Keegan Wright is fresh off a status quo-wrecking 2017 season, piling on the enduro podiums and turning plenty of necks by winning the New Zealand Elite Downhill National Championship against a stacked lineup of World Cup movers and shakers. Here, Keegan faces off against some equally formidable characters—a pack of fierce Maori warriors. 

The Maori's spear-wielding Wero challenge marks the beginning of a ceremonial Powhiri greeting. Passing the test means a ticket to ride. It’s a blessing this New Zealand native puts to good use across Rotorua’s raw, rugged trail systems.

This multipart series has Keegan test-driving his new Devinci Spartan across a few favorite trails while showing you some of New Zealand’s best riding terrain.

Looking at our suspension analysis (now above), it's clear this bike will ride best for most with an air shock.

It's slightly progressive, actually. We added a suspension analysis to this feature after it went live.

SRAM says it for a reason, although I imagine lighter riders can rock the XX1 stuff on their big rigs without an issue. This is from the Eagle intro feature Vital did. The image is of the hollow XX1 crank.
