We first got a glimpse of the Devinci Spartan at Sea Otter when we snuck away with some Devinci employees from the venue to ride the newly updated bike, which had yet to be released. We later received a full production model and tested it in our February 2018 issue. This bike stole our attention with its metal-flake purple and green paint job and kept us standing in awe for its modern enduro geometry. Even with 165mm of travel, we happily pedaled this bike on trail rides, although it really came alive in the bike park or down our favorite local enduro tracks. The Spartan is a well-rounded machine that charges into battle like a warrior. www.devinci.com
