Devinci’s G4 aluminum tubeset is triple butted, which means the tubes are thickest in areas where strength is key and thinner in less vital zones, allowing for weight savings. Further strength is gained by hydroforming the 6066-T6 aluminum tubes into the pyramid shape you see on the top and down tubes.
Devinci welds and heat-treats their frames before machining the bearing seats into the pivot points, thereby eliminating the chance of frame deformation due to the intense heat of welding. This should in turn increase bearing life in the frame by ensuring that frame alignment is free of axial loading to the bearings.
A Cane Creek Zero Stack headset locates the headset bearings inside the frame’s tapered head tube. Shaped top and down tubes are able to utilize the added real estate offered by a massive head tube for an assuredly solid connection during the manufacturing process, which, by the way, is done entirely in-house in Canada.
