News & Reviews
Jun 26, 2009

The big news out of the Devinci camp is that the 2012 Wilsons will be coming off the line with carbon swing arms! There's also a carbon 29er and an all new Split Pivot bike, the Atlas. Check it out!!

Devinci's main man Gabe Fox was kind enough to tour us around the booth and give us the low down on the new 2012 gear. Below are pictures of the carbon Wilson swing arm, the all new Atlas 29er, the Dixon and Dexter Split Pivot bikes, and the Wookie, a carbon hardtail!

No further explanation necessary. Devinci is diving into the world of carbon bikes with the Wookie 29er.

Sweet internal cable routing!

Carbon always gives that clean, no-weld look in areas that would usually have gussets or extra metal.

The Wooky is a full on XC race bike; 71 degree head angle and X9 spec on the more price point RC version.

The Dexter; Split Pivot and ready for all mountain/XC action.

At 110mm travel, the Dexter fits into the awesome trail bike category.

Next year the Dexter will come in three different models, from the top of the line SL to the price point XP. It is also available as a frame only.

Flashy blood-red paint on the Dexter for 2012 reminds us of another Dexter...

145mm of Split Pivot, trail-eating travel.

Brand new and looking fine, the Atlas was drawing quite a bit of attention at the show.

Big ol' 29" wheels.

The Atlas has the shortest chainstays of any full suspension 29" bike on the market.

The 2012 Wilson is looking fly! It will now come in an extra-large size to accommodate the taller/bigger riders looking to get in on some Split-Pivot action.

They've gone carbon on the swingarm, but the front end of the Wilson stays with aluminum. The official word on the evolution of the front triangle is that Devinci is "working on a lot of projects, all the time..." Take that as you will.

Fox DHX RC4 holds the carbon to the aluminum.

As always, Devinci is straight outta Quebec.

It might be hard to tell at first, but that is carbon.

If you need any more info on the 2012 Devinci bikes, their website launched yesterday so have a look and wait patiently for the bikes to show up in a shop near you.
