Enduro courses. World Cup Downhill courses. It’s hard to tell the difference between the two these days. Well, right up until the point when you have to grind your way to the top of the absolute hairball descent—that would be enduro. And that is also where the new Firebird 29 enters the picture with its speed generating 29er wheels and a penchant for kicking ass. The Firebird 29’s big wheels gobble up miles with ease, roll right over the gnar and add insane levels of traction to the mix. But this is no monster truck. The Firebird 29 is a lightweight machine that boasts a poppy, lively feel that long-travel 29ers have never possessed. Until now.

The Firebird 29 features a bomber, yet ultra-light, full-carbon frame constructed with leading edge carbon fiber materials and Pivot's proprietary molding technology. With its long front-center and short chainstay combination, the Firebird 29 possesses that nimble, snappy feel that tempts you to make bold line choices yet allows you to stay in complete control when you’re warping down trails at World Cup speeds. The dw-link rear suspension enabled Pivot to build a bike that achieves the ultimate in both downhill and climbing performance. The dw-link’s anti-squat and variable wheel travel path traits yield both the square-edge bump absorption of a downhill bike and the crisp pedaling efficiency of a shorter-travel trail bike. The Firebird is compatible with both 29-inch and 27.5-inch wheels without compromise, thanks to the flip-chip and adjustable geometry. Super Boost Plus rear spacing adds stiffness and control, while hassle-free, full-length internal cable routing keeps cables neat and protected. If you want a bike that crushes climbs, slays descents, and rewrites the 29er playbook, the Firebird 29 hits the mark.
