“The Mach 4 Carbon is, hands-down, the best pedaling full-suspension bike out there. It’s become my go-to World Cup race bike.
The DW-link suspension not only allows me to attack the technical descents but allows me to climb more efficiently through increased seated and standing traction.”

From the Epic race series, to the Sea Otter Classic, to the Pan Am Games – the Mach 4 Carbon has put athletes on podiums around the world. As race courses evolve to be as technically challenging as some backcountry epics, Pivot’s next generation race/trail geometry is the answer to hitting everything just a little bit faster on every lap.
The Mach 4 Carbon frame is produced using our proprietary hollow core internal molding process, combined with highly optimized layup structures, tube sections, and material choices, tuned for the optimum ride-feel in every size. Frames weigh as little as 5.1lbs (2.3kg) and complete bikes are available under 22 (10kg) lbs.
The new Mach 4 Carbon features a fully redesigned rear triangle with increased stiffness and more tire clearance. The confident handling of the Mach 4 Carbon is complemented by the mid-sized 27.5” wheels with new 148mm BOOST rear hub spacing – all together, providing instant response while maintaining rolling speed through even the roughest sections of a racecourse.
A TRAIL-READY RIDE
The Mach 4 Carbon complete bikes are built with an ideal combination of components for riders seeking a fast, capable trail-ready bike. For riders seeking high performance, trail bike capability on technical terrain and high-speed descents, the sub-4 lb., 130mm travel Fox 34 embodies confidence and control. Additional complete bike highlights include Maxxis Ardent 2.35 tires and 740mm wide riser bars with shorter stems per size catering to a more trail oriented riding style.
The Mach 4 Carbon is a race-tested and proven choice. For competitive athletes, we offer the Mach 4 Carbon complete bikes with an optional XC Race package. This podium-ready build includes the very light 100mm Fox 32 Step Cast fork **, fast rolling Maxxis IKON 2.2” tires and a Phoenix Team Flat Carbon handlebar. For riders who seek to save every second, and whose primary purpose is cross-country racing, the XC Race package turns the Mach 4 Carbon into the fastest ride to the finish line.
BIKES TO FIT EVERY RIDER
The Mach 4 Carbon is available in five sizes to fit riders from 4’10” to 6’3”+ from Extra Small (XS) to Large (L) and Large (Long) options. Smaller stature riders will be happy to know that the XS frame fits a large waterbottle in the front triangle, sizes S-L all fit 2 large bottles in the front triangle.
With the Mach 4 Carbon’s very low stand over height, riders seeking the a more trail bike oriented fit are able to go up a size and run a shorter stem – the resulting longer front-center is ideal in more technical terrain. The addition of the Large (Long) to the Mach 4 Carbon line-up enables a wider size range of riders to take advantage of this fit strategy.
