The Oisin (pron. oh-sheen) is new to the list of offerings from Devlin. The Oisin is the bells and whistle model in the range. Designed with over 30 years of mtb experience over a multitude of different platforms, combining a host of modern trail bike design ideas. It has quickly proven itself to be very adept at a broad range of riding conditions.
The Oisin is a mid travel trail bike with 135mm of rear travel and designed to have 140-160mm up front. Built with a mix of premium tubes and materials from different suppliers to achieve the perfect blend of function and strength. The swingarm yoke and chainstays are custom shaped 4130 steel with 304SS fittings where needed across the frame.
100% Fillet brazing is the joining method used on this model. Both Silver and Bronze are used depending on the location in the frame structure. It provides great strength and an inherent better stress management at the joints. The only downside is it takes longer to build than using TIG welding.
The Oisin is both adept at climbing and descending. With good anti-squat and a longer wheel base for stable cofident fast riding. We have adopted a semi forward geometry which uses a longer frame reach with a short stem and moderate head angles, 66 degreees being optimum angle in testing. All Oisin's are sold with a 35mm stem recommend, as it is the optimum length to realise the best layout of the platform. This forms the basis of the handling package for each customer.
The Oisin has full custom geometry to achieve the correct fit and balanced ride for the individual. A professional fit is included in the price of the Oisin and works to give an efficient seated climbing position while being balanced standing. I work with two very well respected fitters in SEQ but can also work with a fitter local to you.
Included is Rockshox Deluxe Select+ shock and Cane Creek headset.
Other shock options can be used but may require a change in rocker geometry to work and a fee associated. Internal rear brake and gear lines are extra but can be incorporated, two bottle bosses on down tube tube and M6 stainless seat binder bolt. Stainless steel relief head tube logo. Single solid colour powdercoat with ‘Devlin’ on downtube and logo in select places.
