DeVinci officially began in Quebec in 1990, and as you likely guessed the brand refers to the name of the great inventor and painter, Leonardo Da Vinci. The company has built up its reputation largely through its full suspension mountain bikes, although with its latest lineup of OPTIMUM R03 frames, the company looks to expand to the cyclocross and versatile road market.
Instead of calling it gravel riding, DeVinci calls its Hatchet an Open Road model, and offers three different models to meet different budgets. The Hatchet SX, the top-shelf model, was on display at Interbike 2015. It comes equipped with a SRAM Rival 1 mechanical group with an 11-36 rear cassette. The frame comes in six sizes, ranging from a 43cm to a 60cm, and the full bike comes with the price tag of just $1399.
The frame of the bike is aluminum while the carbon forks are an in-house brand, with both the front and rear dropouts designed for quick release disc wheels. The rear clearance allows up to a 40c tire, and the company tries to keep the options open with eyelets for a rear rack.
