Pivot's Firebird 29 is a long-travel 29er ideally suited to enduro racers, park riders, or anyone looking for a bike that lets them tackle the toughest descents possible with no weight penalty or excess bobbing on climbs. The Firebird 29 Pro XT/XTR 1x features 162mm of plush, yet efficient dw-link rear suspension and a thoroughly progressive, adjustable geometry with Super-Boost Plus rear spacing and ultra-wide, ultra-stiff pivots that provide a dialed-in ride built for speed. Fox ably handles your damping needs with a Performance Float X2 shock commanding the rear and a Factory 36 Grip 2 fork up front that rakes in a colossal 170mm of attack-anything travel. DT Swiss M1700 wheels deliver the high strength and weight savings you expect from DT, with an upgraded 36T Star Ratchet system for quick engagement and hard-cranking confidence. Maxxis Minions set the traction benchmark for mastering technical terrain at speed, and Shimano XT brakes offer such reliable and powerful braking that you'll regard the near-vertical as near-perfect. With trail control under your belt, now you get to pour on the power through Shimano's gorgeous and flawless XTR rear derailleur and XT shifter, driven by Race Face's Aeffect crankset. Enduro-spec isn't complete without a dropper post and wide, Phoenix carbon bars to properly link rider and machine as you ride straight into legend.
Crazy Fast Meets Ridiculously Capable There's a dizzying range of bikes out there these days—XC, trail, all-mountain, enduro...What if you just want a bike that rips on nearly every trail? This is that bike. The Trail 429 is brilliant just about everywhere. It accelerates and climbs like a cross-country bike yet more than holds its own on tough terrain. We took the original Mach 429 Trail, completely reshaped the chassis, and gave the bike a truly progressive geometry. The Trail 429 is even more capable on technical terrain than its predecessor yet doesn't sacrifice a thing in the quick and nimble departments. Effortless handling, incredible power transfer, and blazing acceleration are what set the Trail 429 apart from so many other trail bikes. Lightweight, Capable, and Perfectly Balanced The best trail bikes are neither whippy nor overbuilt. They are, in a word, balanced. We sweat the details—painstakingly developing the precise mix of resins, composite fibers, lay-orientation, and frame shaping to create a chassis with the perfect blend of strength and stiffness. We've also given the Trail 429 many of the same strength and stiffness-enhancing features that you'll find on our gravity-oriented bikes, including a double-wishbone rear triangle, Super Boost Plus rear axle spacing, ultra-wide suspension linkages, and burly bearing assemblies. With the Trail 429, we've upped the ante on downhill performance without any loss in versatility. Tuned for the Trail 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 also why it's the heart of the Trail 429. We've paired that class-leading dw-link suspension with custom-tuned Fox Float DPS (Dual Piston System) that give the Trail 429 120 millimeters of smooth and controlled rear suspension. The metric-sized Fox DPS shock features an extremely positive "firm" position that makes easy work of long fire-road climbs. To match the Trail 429's deep-feeling rear suspension, we've equipped each model with a 130mm Fox 34 suspension fork.
The Ultimate Trail Bike. The Mach 5.5 Carbon builds on the legacy of Pivot's 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 tremendous pedaling efficiency for such an aggressive rig. On descents, the Mach 5.5 Carbon's incredible square edge bump performance and 160mm travel Fox 36 fork enable 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. Pivot applied their proprietary hollow-core internal molding technology to the Mach 5.5 and crafted a best-in-class frame for quality, strength, and weight. Then, they gave it a long and low geometry, putting the rider in a confident, stable stance. The bike’s short (430mm) chainstays and relatively steep seat angle help it rail the tightest corners and absolutely crush the steepest climbs, while the boost rear spacing adds stiffness and control on the descents. The Mach 5.5 Carbon can run any 27.5 tire combination from 2.1–2.6-inch, so your options are nearly unlimited. Additional frame details such as the Cable Port System, space for a large water bottle, and front derailleur compatibility prove that brawn and brains can certainly coexist.
