Rated 5 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing shock especially for £300 I was looking at these about 18 months ago for my bighit but never bought one cause i was happy with my fox, 4 days before i went to morzine this year my stock vivid on my scalp blew out and i didnt have time to get it done under warranty before i went, so i bought this, put it on and first time i used it was down a trail out there, out of the box with no adjustment it was already amazing, still fine tuning it at times for different trails but its better than my Old fox DHX and my old vivd. It is noticably lighter than other coil shocks cause of the hi tensile spring as well so if youre trying to avoid heavy components then its also a good shout. Now ive found out balfa service them its not a problem on that front, my only worry was no one to service it but ive sorted it. The only 2 negatives i have found: -The noise - every time it decompresses it makes a noise, not a problem at all for me but its there, but BOS squeak and Vivids make noise on compression. -Rebound is quite hard to get right as theres very little middle ground, its quite fast or slow, just have to find where youre happiest and adjust other settings accordingly, but adjustments to have a big impact. 13 September 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Most sensitive shock on the market! Tried Fox DHX coils, Manitou and Rockshox coils on friends bikes but the Elka stage 5 would have to be the best yet. Fox has the new kashima coat but this is just as good if not better. The only down side to the Elka is there is no bottom out adjustment, just a rubber stopper. If you like a bottomless/plush feel all the way through your travel then get this. If you like your shock to ramp up near the end of its travel you would probably prefer a Fox as it has the bottom out adjustment. 21 February 2013

Answer: 
No, from what I have been able to find the 2013 Devinci Wilson Carbon would use a 260mm Rear Shock so this Shock wouldn't be compatibe as it comes in a 240mm.

Answer: 
Unfortunately we cannot change the tune of these shocks before they are dispatched. To get a frame specific tune you will need to purchase the shock and get it tuned by a specialist suspension center.
