Product Details

2018 Pivot Cycles Switchblade Race XT 1x 27.5+

Purpose-built to meet the demands of enduro and aggressive trail riding, Pivot’s Switchblade is a versatile ripper with a huge advantage no matter where you shred. Combining modern geometry tweaks with a stiff and lightweight carbon frame gives you both unmatched high-speed stability through chunky terrain and effortless split-second manuals over seemingly impossible obstacles. With a 135mm-travel double wishbone rear triangle design employing dw-link’s anti-squat and variable wheel travel path, the Switchblade achieves the best performance in high speed and technical sections while also maintaining precise handling and an efficient, poppy ride. A 150mm Fox 36 Performance fork attacks obstacles relentlessly while a Fox Performance DPS shock handles spring and damping duties in the rear. This Race XT 1x build features Shimano's smooth-shifting and dependable 1x11 drivetrain paired with Race Face Aeffect SL cranks. Shimano Deore hydraulic disc brakes follow up with great power and modulation, while the Sun Ringle Duroc 27.5+ wheelset teams up with 2.8-inch Maxxis rubber to carve through dirt with sharp precision and insane traction. A Fox Transfer dropper post and Phoenix alloy handlebar complete the stellar spec, giving you an outstanding all-terrain, all-conditions ride.
