Ride Further, Ride Harder… And Feel Like a Superhero While You’re At It. We didn’t set out to simply build an eMTB. We set out to create a class-leading enduro/trail bike that broke barriers and opened new doors to your riding. Say “Hello” to the Pivot Shuttle—the lightest, most capable and, dare we say it, utterly badass eMTB in the world. We created a thoroughly modern mountain bike featuring progressive geometry, ultra-capable suspension, and a state-of-the-art carbon-fiber chassis. Then we added a class-leading power supply to the mix…which, we might add, we accomplished in a thoroughly innovative fashion. Ride further, ride harder…and feel like a superhero while you’re at it. More Than Just A Motor Try this: Straddle a few different eMTBs, turn off the electric assist and give them a go. Are they still fun to ride? We did a whole lot of that during the Shuttle’s R&D process. The answer was usually, “Nope.” Many of the bikes we tested were cumbersome, cranky…In a word, meh. If you turn off the motor on the Shuttle, what do you have? Essentially, a rowdier version of our singletrack-loving Mach 5.5 trail bike. The Shuttle pedals exceptionally well. It carves the tightest corners. It absolutely rips technical descents. Now, turn on the Shuttle’s motor and what do you get? You get the same awesome things—with the ability to ride a whole lot further. Epic rides get more, well, epic. Heinous climbs just stop being heinous. In a word, rad. The Shuttle is an awesome mountain bike. Period. The motor is icing on the cake Perfect Suspension Equals Perfect Control. Dave Weagle’s dw-link™ design is renowned for providing great traction and downhill control without adding energy-sucking suspension bob or “squat”. That’s even more important on an eMTB. Engage the motor on many eMTBs and the bike’s suspension wants to squat. Companies try to combat the suspension bob by adding a ton of compression damping to their rear shocks. The downside? Their suspension is no longer supple and responsive. When the downhills get hectic, you have less control. With dw-link™, we don’t need to over-damp the rear shock. We dial in just the right amount of anti-squat by meticulously configuring the pivot locations themselves. Our rear suspension is free to devour rocks, logs and roots, and this gives the Shuttle a serious edge on both the climbs and descents. Perfectly tuned suspension. Perfect control. It Gets Rowdy We spent years perfecting the Shuttle’s geometry. The result is a chassis that rides exactly like any of Pivot’s world-class enduro bikes, yet also sets a new standard for lightweight in the eMTB world. The Shuttle is long and slack up front, and short out back. We kept the center of gravity low and gave the Shuttle an even burlier version of the rear shock linkage featured on our long-travel bikes. Finally, we maximized frame and wheel stiffness with Super Boost Plus 157 spacing. The end result? The Shuttle manages to be surprisingly nimble in tight conditions, is supremely confident on fast, chunky descents and can scale ridiculously steep climbs with surefooted calm. Truly Innovative Power The Shuttle features the first battery and motor truly designed for mountain biking. Shimano’s STEPS E8000 system provides a smooth, natural-feeling assist to your own pedal power. No awkward power lag. No annoying resistance in the drivetrain. Next, we took the most compact, lightweight and powerful e-bike battery available and mounted it to a bottom-load, full carbon tray of our own design. This enabled us to create the strongest and lightest frame possible. The Shuttle is easy to operate. Intuitive Shimano controls make fine-tuning your power output simple and seamless. Likewise, the Shuttle features externally-accessible charging ports for quick and effortless charging of your battery. And that Shimano battery? It’s rated for 1,000 recharges—that’s about twice as many recharge cycles as you’d get from most competing batteries. Every Component Delivers You can’t just slap a motor on a bike and call it a day. Adding an electric motor to the mix places new demands on bikes and components. That’s why we beefed up the Shuttle’s chassis and linkages, tweaked the geometry and worked with Fox to adjust the suspension. We also collaborated with DT Swiss to create a light-yet-bomber wheelset (the EB1550) that’s been strengthened to withstand motor torque and which features a Super Boost Plus 157 rear hub that increases stiffness by 30 percent. Finally, we partnered with Maxxis on the design of their Silk-Shield tire casings, which allows us to give the Shuttle big, durable, traction-loving tires without adding unnecessary (and buzz killing) rotational weight. Every part matters. On the Shuttle, every part delivers.
The new Mach 5.5 Carbon builds on the legacy of our renowned Mach 5.7 Carbon as the quintessential trail bike. With 140mm of dw-link™ rear travel, it sticks to and claws up just about anything, with unparalleled pedaling efficiency. On descents, the Mach 5.5 Carbon’s incredible square edge bump performance and 160mm travel Fox 36 fork enables you to conquer terrain that makes other bikes cower. It’s a bike that inspires you to climb while looking forward to the descents and that begs you to push your limits while putting a smile on your face. FRAME DESIGN There are several things that make the new Mach 5.5 Carbon truly exceptional. We’ve evolved our mid-travel link design, by utilizing the same rear shock pivot cartridge bearing design found in our longer travel clevis designs (such as the Firebird and Phoenix), to give the Mach 5.5 Carbon the unmatched small bump compliance and traction that Pivot is known for in a lighter weight and more compact design. When engineering the ultimate trail bike chassis, weight matters. The Mach 5.5 Carbon matches Mach 6 Carbon durability while achieving Mach 429 SL Carbon weights and the perfect balance of frame stiffness and ride feel that Pivot frames are known for. The frame’s carbon structure features our proprietary hollow core internal molding process combined with a highly optimized lay-up design, utilizing lighter weight, high modulus materials that save up to a pound (.45kg) over other trail/enduro bike designs. The Mach 5.5 Carbon is available as a complete bike, with builds weighing under 27lbs (12.2kg) complete with dropper, and with frame weights as low as 5.2lbs(2.35kg). TRAIL GEOMETRY The geometry of the Mach 5.5 Carbon is tuned to support its well-rounded trail bike personality – the optimized long and low geometry with a 66.5-degree head angle provides high-speed stability, contributing to its amazing descending capabilities. Combined with short 430mm chainstays and relatively steep 73.5-degree seat angle, it absolutely crushes the steepest of climbs. The Mach 5.5 Carbon’s overall balanced geometry makes it the ultimate trail bike weapon. We’ve taken this ultimate trail bike idea one step further by combining it with Maxxis’ new Wide Trail 2.6” Minion DHF/Rekon tire combination mounted on 35mm wide rims for maximum control and maximum fun in a wide variety of conditions. This wider 2.6” tire option gives you incredible traction and rollover advantages with nearly the speed of a full on enduro race tire set up. The Mach 5.5 Carbon can run any 27.5 tire combination, from 2.1-2.6, so your options are nearly unlimited.

Our goal when designing the Mach 429 Trail was to create a new category of trail bike – one that takes advantage of the best features of 29 and yet maintains the performance characteristics that make you forget about wheelsize and, instead, translate to the “best-ride-ever,” every time you ride. The result? A bike with the incredible pedaling efficiency and small bump compliance of the dw-link® design, a slack front end and a short back end that is fast, flickable, energy efficient, with unparalleled descending capabilities in the trail bike category. To complement this new 29er formula, you’ll find Boost™ 148 spacing, our own hollow core, internal, high compression carbon molding and the obsessive detailing you expect from Pivot. Effortless trail bike handling, incredible power transfer and precise cornering are all yours, without compromise, in the perfectly balanced chassis of the Mach 429 Trail. It is the perfect choice for your next ride. Pivot’s Mid-Travel Trail Linkage Design The 429 Trail marks the introduction of Pivot’s mid-travel trail linkage design, specifically for trail bikes. With major influences from the clevis design of the Phoenix DH Carbon and Mach 6 Carbon, the 429 Trail utilizes an entirely new upper linkage to provide the same ultra-precise control and bottomless feel of our longer travel dw-link® designs in a more compact, lighter package for trail applications. When we pair the new upper linkage design with the same lower linkage design that we utilize on the Mach 6 Carbon, the result is a bike that you can take anywhere and over anything – an incredibly versatile 29er with seemingly endless suspension and noticeably increased traction. The Mach 429 Trail’s dw-link® suspension delivers unmatched handling characteristics combined with pedaling efficiency and climbing capability for riders who demand the best performance in both XC and technical terrain. Fox Factory Suspension The 429 Trail is spec’d with the new Fox Float DPS (Dual Piston System) shock custom tuned specifically for 429 Trail. DPS stands for Dual Piston System – the shock features two separate sets of valving, similar to what you would find in Fox’s external reservoir Float X design but in a much lighter package. The Float DPS shock features new settings and a design that allows for an incredibly plush feel with a wide range of damping control while also offering an extremely positive “firm” position, for those long fire-road climbs. These features are direct complements to Pivot’s mid-travel suspension tuning and when combined with the dw-link’s® patented position-sensitive anti-squat, gives riders even better traction on steep climbs and over rough trail, making the Mach 429 Trail an up-trail-conquering, climbing machine with a nearly bottomless feel in even the most aggressive terrain. To match the never ending feel of the Mach 429 Trail’s rear suspension, we’ve paired it with the 130mm Fox 34 for a perfectly balanced ride both on the ups and downs. This fork sets the new bar for trail specific suspension performance. Boost To complement these trail-proven angles, you’ll find new Boost™ 148 spacing in the rear and 110mm front hub spacing. The extra width between dropouts with the Boost™ system lends itself perfectly to Pivot’s drive to produce the stiffest frames with the best energy transfer available. The extra room between hub flanges gives that 29er wheel a ride feel that is as precise as any wheel size with the added advantage of big-wheel rollover capability. In addition to enhanced frame and wheel stiffness, the Boost™ system also enables us to add more tire clearance, allowing for a wider range of condition-specific tire choices, and 27.5”+ compatibility. Carbon Frame Design When creating the Mach 429 Trail, our engineers worked to find the perfect combination of purposeful, clean, composite design for strength, large cross sections for stiffness, and the right combination of composite materials to produce a high value frame worthy of the name Pivot. With our hollow-core, internal-molding process to bring this vision to reality, riders can now put the Mach 429 Trail at the top of the list when it comes to choosing a one-bike quiver. Additionally, we’ve designed this full carbon frame with value in mind – building on our years of composite layup and construction experience – we’ve maintained the highest levels of stiffness and strength to weight, while making focused changes to keep the costs down and the technical advantages high, such as strategic, easy-to-service external routing combined with key features of the Pivot Cable Port System – including ports for use with an internal dropper post and clean cable/housing routing through the chainstays. The Details Make The Bike The Mach 429 Trail features an ultra-clean, removable front derailleur mount. For those that want to run two chainrings, this mount offers the best shifting performa
One Bike, Any Trail…. Every Budget. As soon as it hit the dirt, the Pivot Switchblade started racking up awards throughout the cycling media. Why? Because it’s an ultra-light, ultra-capable aggressive trail bike that punches way above its weight class. The only complaint we ever hear? Not everyone could afford one. So we took the same ultra-stiff frame design, the same 135 millimeters of super smooth dw-link® suspension and the same thoroughly modern, long and low geometry… and crafted this new model from the most sophisticated, hydro-formed aluminum frame components anywhere. Behold the new Switchblade Aluminum…It’s the same flavor of Switchblade kick ass, for less cash. NEXT GENERATION ALUMINUM Working with carbon actually changed how we built aluminum bikes. We realized that we needed to develop entirely new aluminum frame building techniques if we wanted to create the same kind of advanced tube shaping and ride quality we’d achieved with carbon. So that’s what we did. This is the next generation of aluminum. Our state-of-the-art hydroforming methods allow us to achieve extremely precise wall thicknesses and complex, multi-axis tube shaping. And, yes, while that sounds a bit geeky, those advances absolutely improve strength, stiffness and your ability to always pick a line and stick it. In fact, our aluminum frames offer nearly the same strength and stiffness as our carbon frames. What’s more, the Switchblade Aluminum utilizes the same ultra-stiff clevis and linkage, and large, suspension specific, EnduroMax bearings as its carbon brother, for best-in-class power transfer and handling. CLIMBING MACHINE Thanks to Dave Weagle’s dw-link® rear suspension, the Switchblade takes the suffering out of the steepest, rockiest climbs. The suspension is amazingly efficient, yet supple and active, providing you with all the traction you need to clean the trickiest technical sections. The Switchblade is the rare bike that shines on the toughest downhill tracks yet never sacrifices a shred of climbing ability. DOWNHILL BEAST The Switchblade is an absolute weapon on the steepest and roughest descents. Its chassis takes more than a few cues from our gravity bikes. The Switchblade’s double wishbone rear triangle is damn close to what you’ll find on our World Cup DH bike—the Phoenix. The ultra-stiff linkage design? It’s what you’ll find on our Mach 6 and Firebird enduro models. The end result is the absolute stiffest frameset available in the trail category—giving you precise control and the ability to tackle new terrain every time you ride. No surprise, the suspension plays a big role here as well. Because the Switchblade’s dw-link® rear suspension doesn’t squat or bob under pedaling force, we are able to lower the bottom bracket height and slacken the head angle to achieve the best performance in high speed and technical sections while still maintaining the precise handling and “poppy” ride that makes a great trail bike so much fun. The Best of 29 and 27.5—In One Bike The Switchblade boasts both the shortest chainstays in its class (for agile handling) and more clearance for wide tires than any competitor. Putting these two holy grails of bike design into a single frame design enables you to experience both unmatched high-speed stability through chunky terrain and effortless split-second manuals over seemingly impossible obstacles. Our Super Boost Plus rear spacing deserves a lot of the credit here for making all this possible and while we’re on the subject, it also improves frame stiffness, wheel durability and lets you use a front derailleur while you’re at it. Want to run a 29er set-up to achieve maximum rollover and quick handling? Go for it. Looking for unrivaled traction and a more forgiving, stable ride quality in loose, rocky conditions? Choose one of our 27.5-plus tire and wheel build kits. 29 or 27.5-plus—the Switchblade is brilliant in both wheel sizes. PERFECTLY-TUNED SUSPENSION Rear suspension duties are aptly handled by a Fox Float DPS shock tuned specifically for the Switchblade’s dual personality. The new Float DPS features improved bump absorption and a firm lockout. The new DPS damper offers three on-the-fly lever adjustments – Open, Medium and Firm—to cover anything the trail throws your way. The shock’s EVOL air sleeve significantly reduces the amount of force required to initiate travel, which results in the ultimate small bump compliance and better bottom-out resistance. Finally, we’ve paired the Switchblade’s excellent rear suspension with the latest 150mm Fox 36 – the perfect fork for trail riders who seek complete control over the most aggressive terrain.
