Pivot Cycles is a name to know. You should know it because of another name. Chris Cocalis.  Cocalis was a BMXer who started working on mountain bikes in college in the 1980s and has been restlessly improving the breed ever since. First at a bike shop, then as a contract builder for well-known brands, then under his own shingle at Titus, and since 2007, Pivot bikes, when they debuted the Mach 4 cross-country platform.

Cocalis is a keen student and a tinker. Another early full-suspension builder. For Pivot’s double-squishys, he’s been working with Dave Weagle, and deploying the DW-Link on all Pivots with rear suspension. Pivot employ pivots because they believe one-piece rear triangles are stiffer, making the bikes more efficient, more responsive, and easier to pilot. The DW-Link is fully active while still being both anti-squat and anti-rise.

Pivot Mountain Bikes

If there’s a single word to describe Pivot’s design process, it would be rigorous. Pivot sweats the details so that there are few worries out on the trail. All recent Pivot bikes utilize carbon because they can control both shaping and lay-up to a more precise degree than any other material.  Pivot figures out broad strokes of suspension kinematics early in the design process and then fine-tunes via extensive prototype testing.  

Used Pivot Bikes

Pivot makes all flavors of dirt pleasure. There are multiple XC mountain bikes, trail, enduro, downhill, dirt jump, fat, e-bikes, and even a gravel rig. For pure riding with a balance of up and down, Pivot’s Mach 4 SL and LES Carbon make up the cross-country stable. When you want to go steeper and rougher Pivot rolls out the Mach 5.5 and the Trail 429 for trail riding prowess.  

Pivot Switchblade

The Pivot Switchblade is nominally listed as an enduro bike, along with the Mach 6 and Firebird.  But it’s got way more personality than the category suggests, making it a great quiver-killer. Sure, it descends fast, but it’s also a confident climber and light enough to enjoy the vertical gained. The suspension is active enough to stay comfortably seated on the roughest inclines.  It can be switched from the standard 29” wheels to 27.5”+, or a mullet. Tires can be as wide as 2.8” for the 27.5”+  mountain bike hoops. And there’s a flip-chip in the DW-Link to change the geometry between a low and high setting, almost like six bikes in one.  

Pivot Vault

The Vault is Pivot’s gravel offering, but it’s more than one bike. The latest iteration can handle both 700c (up to 47mm) and 650b wheels (up to 2.0”) and even work with Fox’s short-travel suspension fork, the 32 AX. The Vault has a seat tube designed to work with both 27.2 and 30.9 seat posts (think dropper post for the 30.9). The seat tube also hosts a unique damper system, called ISO FLEX, which is an elastomer sleeve insulating the seatpost from the frame. This keeps the frame stiff for efficiency and simple for lightness, comfort, and durability.
