Details

Versatility—that's the Switchblade's calling card and the reason this bike immediately rocketed to the top of several cycling media best-of lists. As a long-travel 29er, the Switchblade is a next-level enduro bike that begs for fast, steep, and technical trails. Or, built as a 27.5+ machine, the Switchblade combines ruthless traction with the shortest chainstays in its category for the ultimate all-terrain, all-conditions ride. It's the perfect one bike for any trail.

The Switchblade's full-carbon frame is constructed of leading-edge carbon fiber materials using Pivot's proprietary molding technology. It features details to enhance its durability and versatility, such as a tapered headtube, downtube and chainstay armor, and a water bottle mount. The Cable Port System offers huge access ports for fast assembly of internal routing, while eliminating rattles due to loose housing. A plush Fox Factory rear shock is paired with the super-efficient dw-link suspension, offering the perfect balance of traction, acceleration, and square-edge bump performance. The bike's variable wheel travel path enables you to maintain momentum over rough terrain and provides superior traction on even the most technical climbs. Its confident, yet nimble geometry handles steep technical descents with ease, while optimum, "in the bike" rider positioning maintains its climbing prowess. The Switchblade pairs an excellent rear suspension with the latest 160mm Fox 36 – the perfect fork for trail riders who seek complete control over the most aggressive terrain. And when it comes to components, Pivot went with durable, reliable, high-end parts so you can get the most out of every ride.
