    Spartan 2018. Let's begin speculation.

    All their mtbs lines had been updated, except the Spartan, it's old. For sure (and hope) we will see a newly design Spartan next year. And the meantime, all we can do his watch Oton bike at every EWS events and speculate.
    The do and don't you are expecting? Any wishes? suspension linkage change and of course wheels size.

    The "2017 Spartan" thread on PB has a few details, in the last page, from someone who claims to have seen it. Says it's coming at crank works Whistler.

    (Edit to change to the correct thread & release date, apologies for the previously wrong info)

    Seriously? Of course it will be. Every model Devinci has made since the Spartan is Boost.

    Heard anything else? It looks like Damien Oton won Megavalanche on the new Spartan, but of course there are no features on the bike since it isn't released yet.

    I dig the styling of top/seat tube junction. Also looks like the down tube is a more complicated shape than the previous square profile.

    Drain holes at the lower shock mount area. That'll make a few riders happy. As will the water bottle mount.

    Saw the 2018 dealer book, the Spartan, Django and Troy all are gorgeous, with color schemes and drool worthy builds. Not sure when the release is, but there's a lot to be happy about, including making some of those shorter travel more aggressive.

    Nice! So the Django and Troy got a similar remodel like the Spartan?...

    They already have the vertical shock link, so that much hasn't changed, but overall they are both updated with awesome builds and paint schemes.

    Here you go.

    DEVINCI

    The reach has increased.

    165mm back (same) 170mm front (from 160mm).

    Supposedly the CS has shrunk.

    Downtube protector is Kevlar and built into the frame now but still removable.

    Boost f/r.

    Fits a 38t ring!

    Vertical metric shock. I still don't like the idea of changing to "metric" since there was absolutely no issues with the other way for 25+ years.

    You can now lose your water bottles on the trail.

    They surely jump to the expensive $$ side of the market with the Spartan. For the price I paid for my Troy X01 I only can get a GX.

    My 2017 Spartan gx carbon was $4420. With almost the same build (mine had RF rims w/Formula hubs, new one has v2 rims) its $50 cheaper I think.

    I'm not too impressed with the build kits, but I'm still ordering one. Im going for the GX option and I'll sprinkle it with Carbon as I break thing.

    The purple green, a little flashier then I'm used to but, figured it was time to break the cycle of black bikes, also the black colour way is shipping at a later date. Looking like it will be showing up within the next week or so.
