Pivot Les

The Pivot LES 29 defines fast. If you’re looking for the fastest way to get from point A to point B, this is your ride. There are days when the race just demands something a little (or a lot) more rigid. We know that weight matters and that the pursuit of the win is often based on having the lightest, fastest machine possible. The LES delivers all of this and more with an ultra lightweight chassis and ride tuned stiffness that’s incredibly stiff in all the right places yet still the most comfortable riding race bike ever developed. With a look and ride like no other, the LES is designed to turn heads on the trail and on the podium.

Pivot Les - Swinger Dropout

For the single speed rider, the LES 29 pulls out all the stops with our patent pending Swinger dropout system. The Swinger adjustable system allows single speed riders the simplicity of a vertical dropout design with quick click indexed adjustable chain tensioning. The Swingers quick indexing allows for a lightweight, stable and compact adjustment system allowing quick, easy gearing changes and great chain tension stability. Once you ride the LES with the Swinger system, you’ll see that this is a revelation in simplicity and pure functionality for the single speed rider.

Pivot Les 27.5

LES is more (or LES). After the super successful launch of the LES 29, we are on a roll, so we decided to bring Pivot’s technology and performance to the newest wheels size. For the hardtail rider waiting to convert to bigger wheels, the LES 27.5” should fit the bill perfectly. Featuring a dedicated geared 142mm X 12mm through axle design, and more compact frame design, the LES 27.5” takes our affinity for lightweight performance to a whole new level.

Getting your race ready LES under 20lbs will not be an issue. The biggest news is the small and additional X-small LES frame size that opens up the opportunity for shorter riders to get on properly fitting bikes with bigger wheels. Now you can own, ride and race the most highly optimized hardtail ever created with geometry, stand over clearance, weight, and ride tuning perfected for the smaller rider. The LES 27.5 is a truly exciting bike that we are excited to bring to a whole new legion of Pivot riders.

  • Pivot’s exclusive hollow box, high-compression internal molding technology allows for greater compaction and smoother internal walls resulting in a lighter, stronger, highly optimized, ride tuned frame design. This technology allows the frame extremely lightweight while also having a really balanced feel with a great combination of stiffness and ride quality.
  • Full internal shift cable routing with under bottom bracket access port design for hassle free installation: The LES 27.5” features well thought out internal cable routing that protects the cables from contamination while also being very user serviceable and easy to route, which is something that cannot be said for most internal routed designs.
  • Chainstay length and tire clearance: The LES features extremely short 16.77” chainstays. This matches the shortest 26” chainstay lengths out there so riders have a tight handling, responsive bike along with the benefits of 27.5” wheels.
  • Small and X-Small frame sizes bring big wheels with optimized fit, handling, and lighter weight to smaller riders while offering the maneuverability and excitement provided by the 27.5” wheels to riders of all sizes.

Pivot Vault CX Bike

There’s a lot of excitement around this project at Pivot. The Vault features all the technology of our Pivot LES model to create the ultimate cross and gravel crushing design. It features new school cyclocross geometry with a lower bottom bracket height, slightly shorter chain stays and an overall fit and finish that will make a Pivot fan out of even the most diehard traditional cross bike fans. The Vault has it all! We started with a clean slate to design the most highly optimized, race tuned cyclocross bike ever created.

Out of the gate the Vault was designed with a focus on disc brake optimization, making sure the Vault would be the ultimate disc brake cross bike. However, we did not stop there. We understand that hardcore cross racers still desire to run a traditional cantilever brake set up in certain racing applications. Because of this, the Vault features full cantilever capabilities with recessed (hidden) threaded inserts in the seat stays and fork, and dropouts that convert from 135mm disc brake spacing back to 130mm road spacing.

Whether you’re new to cross racing, looking to enter your first gravel race or a seasoned veteran, the Vault sets a higher bar for ride, style and tuned performance and redefines what is possible in the world of cyclocross and gravel racing.

Pivot Vault CX Bike - Dropouts

The Vault converts seamlessly from cantilever to disc with our innovative and clean removable brake post system, while the Vault’s carbon rear dropouts incorporate a dua insert system which allows you to easily convert the dropouts between 130mm and 135mm spacing for use with either standard road or disc brake specific wheels designs.

Internal cable routing adapts easily to either electronic or cable actuated shift systems. While the stealthy internal top tube brake routing can be totally disguised in disc brake form or cleanly hidden out of the way with cantilever brakes making portaging your bike a clean, snag-free affair.

Pivot Firebird 27.5

Introducing the Pivot Firebird 27.5. Whether you’re sending it in Whistler, gunning for the overall in Downieville or pinning 30-minute descents on a 6-hour epic through the Rockies, the Firebird has your back. By many accounts, it’s the ultimate long-travel trail bike.

The ‘Bird platform has always been revered for its unique combination of climbing traction, acceleration, and descending capabilities; a rare and difficult-to-attain mix of opposing traits. This excellent starting point made it the ideal proving grounds for a 27.5 chassis.

To make the best even better we’ve slackened the head angle, maintained a low BB height and added the amazing Fox Racing Shox 34, a 160mm travel 27.5-specific fork that complements best-in-class handling.

Does your riding style lean towards bruising hucker? Jedi-style finesse? Is “flow” a daily habit and not just an industry buzzword and do you routinely defy the laws of the physical universe we all occupy? Then get this: the 27.5 Firebird sets the bar high. Very high. Expect a whole new level of performance…from an already award winning ride.

Pivot Mach 6 Carbon 27.5

The Mach 6 has been in development for over two years and the excitement brewing behind this bike is nothing short of explosive. This has honestly been the hardest secret for us to keep quiet. However, knowing the level of bike we’ve developed makes the unveiling of this incredible machine that much sweeter.

The Mach 6 isn’t like anything else in our line-up. Hell, it’s not quite like anything we’ve built before! It’s an all new machine designed from the ground up to optimize the 27.5” wheel platform and take the growing Enduro racing scene by storm. The Mach 6 is built with the singular purpose of going faster than anything else in the most aggressive terrain (both up and down).

The Mach 6 features the next generation of long travel dw-link design. With features like 6.1” (155mm) of travel, a low BB height (13.6”), longer top tubes, lower stand-over, and a slack head angle (66 degrees), built around an ultra stiff and responsive carbon chassis, the Mach 6 is a bike designed to push your capabilities and reward those willing to push the limits. We optimized the design with internal top tube cable routing, internal dropper post routing, ISCG 05 tabs, and a look that screams of speed. The Mach 6 absolutely rips for the aggressive trail rider.
