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…

There is a lot of hype surrounding the new wave of XC bikes that have arrived in the last twelve months. These short travel, lightweight and capable bikes may yet spawn their own genre but for the time being, we are seeing a response to more taxing World Cup courses and the application of kit that can be both light…

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. The Mach 429 Trail is aimed at the rider looking for a capable and fast trail bike with the added bonus…

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…

A couple of summers back I was lucky enough to have a Pivot Phoenix as my trusty steed on a month long alpine road trip. It performed flawlessly and is, to this day, one of my favourite downhill rigs. When I was told a Phoenix Carbon was about to rock up at the office I was both excited and a…

When it comes to looks nothing gets my juices flowing more than a stealthy, muscular bike. Ogling the Pivot Mach 429 Carbon in matt carbon with blue detailing certainly had me salivating The oversize carbon frame on this bike looks like it has been bulking up on the steroids! This kind of styling and extra strength might be expected from…

Chris Cocalis and the team at Pivot have been working on this new 27.5 bike for the last two years. Since the launch of the Mach 5.7 it has arguably been one of the most anticipated bikes they have launched. We’ve seen it and drooled at shows, and even swung a leg over it in a car park. When the…

2018 bikes are coming through thick and fast, with a trail bike from Merida, a big travel monster from Saracen and a wild pink hardtail from Pipedream.
