Devinci Marshall – A full suspension trail bike sending it into the dirt-sphere with power, speed, and performance at a price that won’t chokehold your wallet.
The All-New Devinci Marshall
Devinci set out to build a full suspension mountain bike for the masses that was just that only at the price point. They figured that the market is plagued with Asia-made inexpensive bikes that mediocrely perform due to half-though geometries and cheap-out components. Not the case here at all. The Devinci Marshall is a trail bike Made in Canada, which in itself is an industry outlier for sure, showing the commitment of the company to control its manufacturing and product quality. The Devinci Marshall is made for people who want to light up the trails in a dual-suspension mountain bike. At its core, the all-new 130mm travel aluminum frame delivers Split-Pivot performance and reliability with key features like Boost spacing, a solid and up-to-date drivetrain, a dropper post, frame protection, and a lifetime warranty. Paired with a 140mm fork and reliable parts, the Marshall delivers no-fuss riding for no-nonsense riders—all in an unrivaled wallet-friendly package.

The Devinci Marshall mountain bike ride:
Our Stock of Devinci Marshall comes loaded with a Shimano Deore 12-speed drivetrain, RockShox suspension, and a spattering of Devinci’s in-house V2 componentry. Shimano’s Deore M6100 12-speed derailleur and shifter have proven to be stellar performers since their launch and a much better and more reliable product than the comparable SX or NX eagle offering from SRAM. The 12-speed Deore group offers a 10-51t gear spread that should handle just about everything you can possibly throw at it. When it comes to slowing things down this build features a 4-piston Shimano M4100/MT420 calipers/levers paired with 180mm rotors front and rear. The suspension is taken care of by a 140mm RockShox 35 Silver TK Solo Air fork paired with a RockShox Deluxe Select R Debonair rear shock. The suspension choice is on purpose, the bike is geared to more inexperienced riders that should focus more on the riding than tuning suspension settings. However, there are limited damper adjustments on these air-sprung units, for some adjustments but the key point is the ride-and-forget feel of the rig. The fork features an adjustable air spring paired with a Turnkey damper, offering rebound adjustment and a lockout on/off with a “blow-off” valve that allows the fork to compress under a heavy unexpected hit when locked out. The rear shock makes do with just an adjustable air spring and rebound settings, relying solely on Devinci’s in-house compression tune on the rear shock to tame the trail.
When it comes to applying climbing power and cornering traction Devinci’s house V2 brand is highlighted here with V2 Comp rims paired up with Formula catalogue-spec Hubs. The tire choice: out back is a 2.4” wide Maxxis Minion DHRII, paired to a front DHF in 2.5” width, with both featuring the Dual Compound Exo TR rubber and casing. Finishing off the build is a V2 35mm diameter cockpit with 50mm stem and 780mm wide bar with 15mm rise, and a Trans-X dropper in size-specific lengths from 100mm on the XS through to 200mm on the XL. The overall build weighs in at a claimed 34.92lbs for a size Medium, putting it high up on the scale but with assumed durability to handle the rigors of a beginner rider getting stuck in. However, we must say that those Maxxis tires add a chunk of weight that might be shed if your trails don’t require such an aggressive tire. That said weight is the least of your worries as this bike is fully upgradeable and those weight penalties can be shaved off as the rider progresses and their skill level improves. Upgrading the suspension to a more tunable choice will also shed weight and more importantly add a ton of performance to an already incredible platform.
We urge those considering a solid full-suspension mountain bike platform that is worry-free, will not break the bank, and has ample room to personalize and upgrade, to consider the Devinci Marshall. If you are local, you are most welcome to check it out in our showroom. Learn more about Devinci.
