Devinci Adds Jack Budget Alloy 29er Mountain Bike, Updates Road Bike Colors, Specs & Women’s Fit
Devinci’s big push at Interbike was the new carbon fiber versions of the Atlas and Dixon, their DW Split Pivot full suspension mountain bikes. Since then, they’ve trickled out the Jack, a budget alloy 29er hardtail mountain bike, and revamped the spec and paint schemes for their top of the line Leo road bikes, as well as adding a women’s specific version.
Above, the Jack comes in four specs ranging from $699 to $1,099 with a shared hydroformed alloy frame across the spread. The top model gets a basic Rockshox fork, mostly Alivio build with Shimano hydraulic disc brakes, CST tires, Formula hubs and house brand cockpit.
There’s also a WF (Women’s Fit) model at $799 that gets a shorter stem and crankarm, different saddle and ever-so-slightly revised geometry and sizing to better fit the female body.
On the road, the Leo frames remain the same as 2012, and we’ve had one on review for quite a while and are really enjoying it. The change is that the top models get their “fuzzy” paint scheme, which is color section that fades from red to yellow while leaving plenty of the frame bare to show the carbon weave.
Leo SL V as shown with Dura-Ace Di2 is $7,499, making it a helluva deal considering the spec.
Leo SL K WF (women’s fit) road bike gets a full Ultegra build, Mavic wheels and Easton cockpit for $3,399. Like the Jack WF, the frame sizing and spec is slightly smaller to fit women more comfortably.
The top level Leo T2 time trial/triathlon bike also gets the color fade “fuzzy” paint scheme.
