Originally launched in 2007, Pivot’s Mach 4 brings a slew of exciting updates for 2015, including internal routing ports which are fully integrated with Shimano’s Di2 system, the lightest frame Pivot has ever produced, and a variety of build kit options. The Di2 compatibility includes an internal battery mount in the down tube and several ports for clean internal routing. The dw-link frame weighs in at 5.1 lbs, allowing for a complete bike build under 22 lbs. A standard 73 degree XC seat angle is paired with a 67.5 degree head angle, while the offset on the 27.5 fork provides a slightly slacker head angle. Combined these features allow the bike to respond quickly to tight singletrack, while a low bottom bracket helps the bike to descend well.

The 2015 Mach 4 Carbon features a 115mm of travel, a 27.5” wheelset, and is available in XS, S, M & L sizing, with the XS offering the lowest stand-over height on a 27.5 wheel bike in the market.

Pivot’s Phoenix DH Carbon was unveiled at Sea Otter this spring. This 27.5” DH bike features dw-link suspension, a full carbon frame and is currently available as a frameset or in two complete builds. One of the lightest frames in the DH market, the Phoenix weighs in at 7.1 lbs with an air shock, and 8.1 lbs with a coil.

The Phoenix DH Carbon Saint build features the Fox 40 Air 200mm Kashima fork, Race Face SIXC crank, DT wheels, Highroller II Maxxis tires, the Pivot/WTB Hightail saddle and a variety of Pivot carbon parts with an MSRP of $7399. The next build down is the Phoenix DH Carbon Zee. The Zee build utilizes the Rock Shox Boxer RC fork, Hayes wheels, Pivot/WTB Hightail saddle, and Race Face Respond 785mm handlebars. With the Shimano Zee kit, this bike hits the market at $5,499 MSRP.

Pivot Phoenix 27.5 Saint Build

We set out to build the lightest, fastest, most capable World Cup DH bike the world has ever seen. The end result: The new Phoenix DH carbon. The Phoenix features 27.5” wheels, an ultra-lightweight chassis, dw-link suspension, and the most forward-thinking features to ever grace a mountain bike. We have employed Pivot’s exclusive Hollow Core Internal Molding process, along with technology developed from our award-winning Mach 6, to develop a 7.1lb/3.2kg frame.

Pivot Mach 6

It’s no wonder that MTBR.com honored the Mach 6 with their most versatile Enduro bike award, saying, “If we had one basket to put all our eggs in, the Pivot Mach 6 would be it.” The Mach 6 excels over rugged terrain, equally capable on imposing climbs one moment, and rough downhill sections the next. The dw-link’s famed anti-squat delivers unparalleled traction and pedaling efficiency for uphill grinds, while the variable wheel travel path provides incredible square edge bump absorption and control on technical descents. As a professional race bike, the technical terrain of the Enduro World Series is where the Mach 6 truly shines. The 27.5″ wheels, slack head angle, short chainstays, low bottom bracket height and incredible suspension performance, make for a stable, confident bike at speed that raises any rider’s ability to conquer insanely aggressive terrain with ease. Whether you’re riding trails that look more like a World Cup DH course or just trying to clean a section on your local trail that’s challenged you for years, the Mach 6 is designed to enhance your riding capabilities and reward those willing to push their limits to a whole new level.

Whether you are a pure XC racer looking for something nimble, with the acceleration of 26” wheels and the rolling speed of a 29er, or a trail rider that wants something fast and responsive yet stable, the Mach 4 Carbon has you covered. - See more at: http://www.pivotcycles.com/bike/mach-4-carbon/#sthash.g1SKyQEF.dpuf
