2019 Cult Devotion Review


The 2019 Cult Devotion is Cult’s most popular 2019 complete. People loved the fact that it comes with really strong parts for a pretty good price. There are two options, a 2pc bar option and a 4pc bar option. The Devotion has strong chromoly and even comes with two pegs!

Price

This bike is a really good deal. This bike has everything that a good bike should have, making it worth every penny. The Cult Devotion is only $100 more than the Cult Control and has full chromoly frame and forks. This means the bike will hold up to a lot more impact. 

Quality

The only reason that the quality slider is not maxed out, is due to the fact that Cult didn’t use full signature parts on this bike. For example: They used generic chromo 3pc cranks and generic bars instead of the Cult Hawk Cranks and Cult Ak bars

Don’t get me wrong, the parts used in this bike are very good quality and if they did use full signature parts you’d be spending a lot more then $539. They use a full 100% chromoly on the essentials. This includes the frame, bars, forks, and cranks. All bearings are sealed and wheels are double wall. Click here if you need to understand what chromoly is.

Park

There is no doubt that the Cult Devotion will hold up in the park. The parts are strong enough that you shouldn’t break anything when you’re learning the bowls. Features like double wall rims will give your wheels the strength you need when you land flat or case an air.

I did lower the park rating just a tiny bit because it doesn’t have gyro mounts. A lot of big park riders ride gyros, but it’s all personal preference honestly. 

Street

When taking your new Cult Devotion down big gaps you won’t have to worry. Like I mentioned earlier the parts are great quality and I wouldn’t worry too much about them snapping on something stupid. The Cult Dehart Slick tires will be great in the streets. The bike even comes with 2x pegs so you can grind all the rails and ledges.

Dirt

Riding dirt on the Cult Devotion will work just fine. The tires may not be the best, but if you are just hitting straight jump you will be golden. Some trail gods prefer 28/9 gearing for a better top speed when pedaling. 25/9 is the standard and that’s what this bike has. 

Overview

Honestly, I’m surprised that this bike is only $539 considering the parts that are on it. The 2019 Cult Devotion is a very well rounded bike that will enable you to learn new tricks in the parks, streets, and even on the trails. Good job on this one Cult.
