    here ya go..a sneaky peak of Devinci's brand new 2011 Wilson DH frame platform - 200mm



    moving away from their FSR style suspension, to something brand new, designed in close development with a certain "Mr. D. Weagle" and Devinci's in-house engineers!



    more info coming soon...

    Split pivot? Also that explains the prices on the 2010 wilsons on ebay.

    Not too bad, but the main pivot needs to be a bit higher with an idler then it'll be sweet :thumb:

    I was wondering what was up with that too....
    Split Pivot's been a LONG time coming but sure seems like it's here in a big way... can't wait to see who else will be using it.

    Bam, we have a winner. I was thinking that but I thought it would be a bit rude to post, so thanks, you did it for me.

    This is going to be a very interesting year, IMO. Honestly, I'm glad DW quit the e13, I think we can expect more news from him.
    Curious how they designed the BB-pivot.

    It's not a Split Pivot, It',s a weird Virtual Pivot.

    Edit: Wait, I'm Wrong.... It's a Split Pivot XDDD. Like a Sunn Radikal, with the Rocker arm Concentric to the BB and a Split Pivot in the Rear.

    here's something else from 2011 lineup



    geometry adjustment shuttle on seatstays of the 150mm all-mountain frame


    the 2011 Wilson DH frame also has 2 geometry adjustments ;)

    I'm guessing the AM bike is SplitPivot, too. Right ?

    Needs the pivot moved up and a hub gear slapped in the middle then we're talking!

    real thing is coming soon - we get protos, not far off now ;)

    3 new frame platforms

    100mm XC

    150mm All-Mtn

    200mm DH (wilson)


    Devinci starts 2011 with just these 3 frame platforms to move away from FSR-style suspension (= no more Hectik / Frantik / Ollie / Remix / Moonracer)

    looks good, I wonder what the use to render those images, on the other hand, is this going to take as long as the DW DHR is taking?

    So, are you going to use SplitPivot on all of your suspension models?

    looks to me like a single pivot
    the brake is sitting on the lower arm...

    yeah cause the upper arm is the single pivot, if you wanna isolate the braking forces you have to put it on the seat stay arm, in this case the lower arm. Think of it as the split pivot upside down

    Wonder if this will be sold in the US or was this a move to get the Split Pivot out to market outside of US soil to avoid possible Trek ABP issues?

    Honestly curious since who would have thunk that how many years down the road dw version of the split pivot/abp/whatever you want to call it single pivot would end up being implemented on a frame manufacturer that's Canadian and on the smaller side.

    Or just a floating brake arm that's a structural member.

    Trek...

    Odd that the split-pivot website is dead.

    This frame looks pretty good so far...I love active braking, that's one of the biggest letdowns of the revolt for me...besides quality issues that I haven't kept up to date with... Will be interesting to see how that pivot lines up with a chainring...whether it'll be higher or at height. Anyways, looks like a really complete package if it actually sees the light of day.

    Has there been any update as to the ABP/Splitpivot battle? DW's website is dead and trek is still selling bikes, but everybody and there mother has a DW licensed somethingorother now...

    we still don't know the results of the lawsuit/agreement between ABP and SP. Supposedly they were developed independently at the same time...will be interesting to see the results.

    I hope they make the new bike less flexy and roomier in cockpit. I like mine anyway :)

    I think Vrock nailed it. This is the first Split Pivot I have seen (concept or otherwise) with a high pivot.

    Hmmm, looking at it more closely, the pivot really isn't that much higher above the BB than others, it just initially appears that way because the of the pivot/link sitting below the BB.

    lots of fancy suspension mumbo jumbo talk going on in the DH forum this morning. Too confusing for me, I'm gonna go get some coffee and come back when we are discussing 29lb DH bikes, rootbeer, and moar shimz.

    As far as I remember latest DW's words regarding the SplitPivot vs. ABS, he sounded very confident about the SplitPivot future. And I can't remember reading about ABP being patented. Even if both were in patent pending stage, DW may have things set more safely, he has lots of experience with patent business :thumb:.

    Got to check this thing out a bit yesterday in person and it is looking good! Has been in development for some time now apparently and Devinci is doing things right, should be an exciting new offering. Seems like there is going to be a slew of awesome new bikes next year (from many manufacturers).
