Devinci launches E-Spartan and E-Troy
Devinci has two new e-bikes today, giving their e-bikes a bit more flavor. The E-Spartan and E-Troy will be electrified versions of their trail and enduro bikes, apparently replacing the current AC, DC and EP bikes recommended for enduro, all-mountain and trail riding.
First, we’ll dive into the E-Spartan. The bike has 170mm rear travel and a 180mm fork. The E-Spartan features a 725 Wh Shimano EP8 motor, aluminum frame, updated shock layout (compared to the old AC E-Enduro) and suspension Devinci Split Pivot, optimized for e-bike use.
The motor has 85 Nm and Boost, Trail, Eco and Walk modes.
The new E-Spartan’s geometry for a size medium starts with a 77.2° seat tube angle, 64° head tube angle, 460mm reach (changes 20-25mm for each size ), chainstays of 455 mm depending on size and a wheelbase of 1,260 mm.
The E-Spartan is available in a Shimano Deore build for $7,439 with Shimano Deore drivetrain parts, a Fox DHx2 and 38 fork, and 203mm rotors.
The E-Troy shares many features with the E-Spartan in a shorter travel package, including an aluminum frame, asymmetric construction, new geometry and updated shock layout, with the high shock horizontally under the downtube. Rear travel is 150mm and the bike has a 160mm fork.
The E-Troy also has a Shimano EP8 motor to deliver 85 Nm of torque, four power modes including a walk mode and a 725 Wh battery. To try and keep the pivots strong, Devinci used Enduro double-lip sealed bearings.
The geometry of the midsize E-Troy has a short seat tube, 78° seat tube angle, 64.8° head tube angle, 465mm reach, 455mm chainstays and a wheelbase of 1,252 mm.
The E-Troy is available in two build kits, starting with a SRAM GX package for $8,099. This includes a Fox Float X and Fox 38, SRAM GX drivetrain and Code R brakes, and RaceFace wheels.
A cheaper Deore build is priced at $6,999 with a Shimano Deore drivetrain, Fox suspension and Devinci-branded wheels.
For both bikes, Devinci has a new 4-amp charger that can get the battery to about 80 percent life in about two hours. Other e-bike features include an in-tube battery, universal derailleur hanger, 34.9mm seatpost, and lifetime warranty.
