For the steep, fast, chunky terrain of South Mountain's Eliminator Trail, Pivot rider Robert Drew prefers to ride the Firebird 29 for its combination of long-travel suspension, dw-link pedaling efficiency, 29in wheels, and slack geometry.

VERSATILITY & DEPTH
That's what IMB editor Ewen Turner found most impressive about the new Mach 4 SL.

"This is where the versatility lies in this bike. With a fixed post and a 100mm fork, this is a bike that could destroy the field in an XC race. However, add a little more travel and some bigger rubber and you have a precision trail bike ready to slice through singletrack at warp speed. For me, the latter is where things get interesting as I spent the day trying to find the edge of control, and universally failed to get the bike out of its depth."

Pivot Factory Racing had an amazing weekend of exciting DH and Enduro racing.

Read the full report here: https://www.pivotcycles.com/en/pivot-factory-racing-andorra-and-les-orres-race-recap

Eddie Masters MTB WON EWS Les Orres, his first EWS win! Matt Walker MTB was consistently quick as well, earning himself another 7th place EWS finish. Emilie Siegenthaler recovered enough from her recent injuries to lay down a fast time at the World Cup in Andorra finishing 4th, her first podium finish of the season. Bernard Kerr was on a flyer of a DH race run and was on pace to set the fastest time, but the dusty conditions saw his wheel slip in a corner sending him into the dirt. Even with the fall, he finished 17th. How fast would he have been if had a clean run?

Next up... DHI World Cup Les Gets!

Mountain Bike Reviews - Pivot Cycles Firebird 29 2019
Pivot Cycles Firebird 29

Earlier this year, Pivot filled one of the last gaps in their range with the arrival of a long travel 29er. Previously, the Switchblade had been their most progressive big wheeler, but this still had trail bike tendencies and was an excellent ride in those scenarios but not in bigger terrain. Their biggest hitting non-DH bike was the Firebird, which…

Pivot has wasted very little time in overhauling their range, delivering new versions and brand new models at what seems like an alarming rate. Switchblade, Firebird, Mach 5.5, Mach 6, all of these feel like they were released only yesterday. The style, engineering and even elements of geometry have been shared across the range to produce a coherent collection of…

For Pivot, there are two big bikes of the year, the Switchblade, tested recently, and the Firebird seen here. Both obviously share the same genes, but more than that, they represent a step forward in the evolution of Pivot bikes. Boost, refined rear ends, and longer geometry bring them to the forefront of modern mountain bike design as some of…

Pivot appear to be on a non-stop bike producing mission. The last year has seen new models and revisions across the range including the well-received Switchblade and Firebird. As I write this they have done it again with the launch of their e-bike; the Shuttle, at Eurobike adding yet another bike to the range. The Mach 5.5 dropped into the…

2017 is an important year for Pivot, with two new bikes creating waves in the highly competitive trail and enduro market. Creators of top end bikes with price tags to match, Pivot have produced both the Switchblade and it's bigger brother, the Firebird. Both feature new geometry and new technology to create machines to make mountain bikers go weak at…

Straight out of the box the Pivot Mach 429 Trail screamed ‘ride me!’ Big organic carbon tubes that hint at a strength in depth and a bang up-to-date wish list of geometry numbers and frame features had me salivating.

Subtlety has never been a strong point of mine, but at least you always know where you stand, something that is shared by the lime green LES 27.5. From the moment I opened the box I could tell this bike wanted to be ridden, and ridden fast. Pairing the bright paint job with a solid build and still coming out…

This kind of styling and extra strength might be expected from…

Having ridden and rated the Pivot Firebird not that long ago it was a pleasant surprise to have the Phoenix arrive at the office.
