The Pivot Les (get it?!) strikes the balance of stiffness, tuned compliance and pedaling performance in a lightweight carbon hardtail. The full carbon frame with modern XC geometry dissects the tightest race courses with scalpel-like precision while handling technical descents, rollers, berms, and jumps like no XC hardtail should. The frame can fit 2.3-inch tires easily, and full internal cable routing keeps things nice and neat. Topped off with a 100mm Kashima Fox 32 fork, impressive DT Swiss 27.5-inch wheels, a carbon bar, and Shimano's genre-defining 1x11 XTR group with XTR Trail discs, you have the hardtail built for XC dominance and so much more.
The Pivot Les features Pivot's Swinger dropout system for an easy switch between geared and singlespeed drivetrains. The Les comes equipped with a high-modulus carbon dropout with derailleur hanger and a 142x12mm through-axle (shown left). The singlespeed kit (shown right, sold separately) includes a vertical dropout and indexed chain-tensioning system that makes it simple to remove the rear wheel as well as dial in the perfect chainline.
