Razor sharp responsiveness, sculpted minimalism, and class-leading suspension; the Pivot Mach 4SL is a potent blend of speed and efficiency hell-bent on hunting down XC podiums.

Cross country racing is an arena defined by max heart rates, aerobic thresholds, and lactic acid; where minimizing mass matters more than anything else. In the past, this singular focus has led designers to make compromises in suspension performance, chassis stiffness, handling integrity, and ride quality. With the introduction of the new Mach 4SL, Pivot is pleased to announce that they are scrapping that playbook.

“The goal here was uncompromising performance,” says Chris Cocalis, founder, and CEO of Pivot. “With the Mach 4SL we’ve achieved a weight and responsiveness target that is World Cup worthy, but we’ve also built a fully active, highly tractable, exceptionally efficient dw-Link suspension that is light years better than any flex-stay bike out there. Make no mistake, this bike is a rocketship!”

Pivot’s proprietary Hollow Core carbon fiber molding technology produces a frame that carves a whopping 300- 400 grams off the previous version, bringing complete bike weights under 23lbs with dropper seatpost! (size small, World Cup XX-SL). The sculpted minimalism of the rear shock’s rocker link is testament to how no stone was left unturned in the quest to shave weight. Geometry is revised to mirror the design goal of “World Cup focus, but let it punch above its weight.” The head angle has been relaxed, reach and wheelbase has grown, and seat angle has steepened. Class leading traction and performance will be served up in two flavors; the World Cup builds can deliver 95mm or 103mm of travel easily adjusted via a flip-chip on the rocker link, while all other builds offer 106mm or 115mm of travel to squeeze as much fun out of the singletrack while still going as fast as lungs and legs allow.

Pricing, Specifications, and Availability:
The Mach 4SL will be available in Seafoam Green and Ice Blue colors and can be purchased in eight different complete build options from Shimano and SRAM, including lightweight World Cup builds and carbon wheel options priced from $6,199 to $11,599. Available now, in sizes XS through XL, at key Pivot dealers worldwide. For more information visit: https://global.pivotcycles.com/products/mach-4-sl (after May 23, 2023, 12:01 AM PDT).
