Frame Geometry

A: Top Tube Length: 21" - Learn what size is right for you here.

Designed for riders who are 5' 9" to 6' 2"

B: Chain Stay Length: 13.65” - Learn About Chain Stays Here

This is a longer chain stay. It gives you a more stable and controlled feel.

C: Head Tube Angle: 75° - Learn About Head Tube Angles Here

Steep head tube angles make the bike "snappy" meaning more responsive to fast turns.

A less steep head tube gives you more control.

D: Seat Tube Angle: 71°

E: Bottom Bracket Height: 11.8"

F: Stand over height: 9"

This is a medium/tall standover.

A medium stand over provides a good balance between responsiveness and control.

While a tall stand over allows you to pinch more of the seat for bars and t-bogs.

Common Questions

What is the price?

The 2021 Cult Devotion is $550. Which is about the same price as the 2020 model was. I think these bad boys sold out very fast this year. So if you find one around the $550 price, you are in luck. It's worth the price.

It is good quality?

The Devotion has a lot of the high-quality parts that intense riders deserve. Some of these things include full chromoly. Chromoly holds up a lot better than high tensile steel. Read about that here. Along with double Wall Rims. Single-wall rims bend really easily. Having double-wall rims makes the bike last a lot better with spins and whips.

How much does it weigh?

Cult's 2021 Devotion weighs 26.8lbs. Keep in mind this is with the two pegs that are included and with the brakes it comes with. Taking off these parts will make it lighter.

Highlights

Strong parts

For a mid-level bike, Cult went all out. They made sure to include top quality parts on the Devotion.

Lowlights

Sold out

This isn't really the bikes fault, but Cult's fault. Everyone should get a chance to buy this bike if they wanted to.

Buy if you are learning:

  • 180
  • 360
  • barspins
  • t-bogs
  • crank flips
  • grinding handrails

Don't buy if you are learning:

  • tech park tricks

Conclusion

The 2021 Devotion is a mid to high-level bike. Perfect for a rider who has been riding for a while. This person should have some tricks down already and should be working on harder tricks. The Devotion has the quality to help you progress to a high-level of riding. I hope you find one that's not sold out.
