Devote Series Technologies

Advanced-Grade Composite

High-performance grade raw carbon material is used to produce this custom frame material in our own composite factory with a high stiffness-to-weight ratio. The front triangle of the frameset is assembled and molded as one continuous piece in a proprietary manufacturing process called Modified Monocoque Construction.

Advanced-Grade Composite Fork

Composite fork with an OverDrive tapered steer tube absorbs road shock and vibrations and allows for added tire clearance up to 45c.

ALUXX-Grade Aluminum Frame

The frame is made with 6061 alloy and single-butted tubes to produce a strong, durable chassis that’s ideal for rough roads, gravel, and dirt.

Compact Road

A downward sloping toptube (from the headtube to the seattube) creates smaller front and rear triangles for a lighter, stiffer bike. It also makes it easier for riders of all sizes to have a perfect fit.

D-Fuse Technology

Proprietary D-shaped composite seatpost and handlebar work together to dampen vibrations and absorb road shock, resulting in a smooth, compliant ride quality.

Giant Tubeless System

Integrated Tubeless WheelSystem and tires deliver improved efficiency, comfort, and control in the most user-friendly and reliable system.

Disc Brake Integration

Frame is engineered with flat-mount disc-brake integration for superior braking performance in all weather and road conditions.

OverDrive

Original oversized fork steerer tube technology designed to provide precise front-end steering performance. The system’s oversized headset bearings (1 1/4” lower and 1 1/8” upper) and tapered steerer tube work in conjunction to provide optimal steering stiffness.

MegaDrive

A massive rectangular downtube forms the link between the oversized OverDrive system and the PowerCore bottom bracket. This precisely engineered, rectangular shape yields unprecedented steering and pedaling stiffness while minimizing weight.

PowerCore

A massively oversized bottom bracket/chainstay area features a fully integrated, 86-millimeter wide bottom-bracket design. Asymmetric chainstays provide additional stiffness on the driveside and stability on the non-driveside.

Smart Mount System

Compatible with third-party accessories, this integrated mounting system makes it easy to customize with racks, fenders, and more.
