    2011 Devinci Wilson Review and Video - Sick Lines mountain bike reviews, news, videos | Your comprehensive downhill and freeride mountain bike resource

    Let me hear your thoughts on this bike. I'm very interested in getting one, since they'll build a XL next year. Give me some input!

    Also - I'm currently on a large Trek Session 88 (2009) and am 190cm (6'3"). Can someone tell me how they compare size- and ridingwise?

    For my thoughts, all I can compare to the Wilson is the V10 Carbon. I rented each for a day at Whistler.
    As there were set up by the Demo Center, I have to say the shock settings were set by them. My opinion is from their set up.

    The Wilson seemed to feel more plush over braking bumps.
    It did not have the "pop" of the V10 off the jumps. The Wilson rear tire stayed in contact longer, like I was deeper into the travel.
    Sluggish in the air, stable on the trail.
    Wilson more forgiving of mistakes on the trail.

    Seemed the Wilson felt lower to the ground, and maybe a longer wheelbase. Slacker geometry, maybe?

    Both felt the same mashing on the pedals up short hills. Most effort went to forward motion. I was surprised at how firm it pedaled.
