Details

Purpose-built to meet the demands of enduro and aggressive trail riding, Pivot’s Switchblade is a versatile ripper with a huge advantage no matter where you shred. Combining modern geometry tweaks with a stiff and lightweight carbon frame gives you both unmatched high-speed stability through chunky terrain and effortless split-second manuals over seemingly impossible obstacles. Adding dw-link’s anti-squat and variable wheel travel path means that the Switchblade achieves the best performance in high speed and technical sections while also maintaining precise handling and a poppy ride. Best of all, though, is the Switchblade's ability to accept wheel size changes at the flick of a quick release. Drop the 29er wheelset for 27.5+ and crawl your way to the top of any mountain to experience the crazy traction and float characteristics of plus-size tires. Adding to the list of pros is the Pivot Cable Port system which routes shifter, brake, and dropper cables internally for an uber-clean aesthetic. This Team XTR 1x build features Shimano's race-ready drivetrain paired with Race Face Next SL cranks. XTR hydraulic disc brakes follow suit with amazing power at race weight, while the Reynolds carbon wheel/i9 hub combo delivers strength and acceleration in spades. A Fox Transfer dropper post and Phoenix carbon handlebar complete the stellar spec, giving you the ultimate all-terrain, all-conditions ride.
