Designed to meet the needs of modern enduro and aggressive trail riding, Pivot’s Switchblade is the ultimate in versatility. In long travel 29er guise, the Switchblade is a next-level enduro bike that begs for fast, steep and technical trails. Alternatively, dressed in wide 27.5+ rubber, the Switchblade combines spider-man traction with the shortest chainstays in the category for the ultimate all-terrain, all-conditions ride.

Carbon Frame Design
Designed from the very beginning to accommodate multiple wheelsizes, it is this advanced planning that enables us to get so many great features into the one amazing machine. Central to the Switchblade’s dual personality is a full carbon chassis, featuring Pivot’s new long and low geometry combined with ultra short, massive clearance chainstays (up to 1cm shorter than the closest competitor). Combining these two holy grails of bike design in a single frame design means that riders will experience the best of both worlds - unmatched high-speed stability through chunky terrain, and effortless manuals over trail obstacles in one incredible bike.

Pivot’s frame shapes are 100% driven by our pursuit of the perfectly tuned ride, the cleanest design, the strongest product and the lightest possible weight. Utilizing Pivots own hollow core, internal, high compression carbon moulding process allows them to meet the performance requests of our top athletes by finding the perfect combination of composite materials and shapes for that perfect balance of strength, stiffness and the ultimate ride quality.

The Switchblade incorporates a Phoenix DH-inspired double wishbone rear triangle and ultra- stiff linkage design, the same design used in the Mach 6 Carbon, resulting in the absolute stiffest frameset available in the trail category – giving you precise control and the ability to push your boundaries every time you ride.

DW-LINK
Dave Weagle, the inventor of the dw‐link® and Chris Cocalis, Pivot’s president and founder, collaborate on every Pivot suspension design – for the Switchblade, they focused on utilizing the best attributes of the dw‐link® for the ultimate in enduro/trail performance. dw‐link’s anti-squat and variable wheel travel path means that the Switchblade pedals better than anything else in the category. This design means the frame doesn’t squat or bob under pedalling force, so we have been able to lower the bottom bracket height and slacken the head angle to achieve the best performance in high speed and technical sections, whilst maintaining the precise handling and poppy ride that makes a great trail bike so much fun. There’s nothing like stepping outside your comfort zone and progressing your bike handling skills to make you feel alive!

Fox Factory Suspension
The Switchblade is spec’d with the Fox Float DPS shock with the new EVOL air sleeve, tuned specifically for the Switchblade’s dual personality. The new Float DPS features improved bump absorption and firm lockout with a new DPS damper with three on-the- fly lever adjustments – Open, Medium and Firm options cover all of your terrain choices. The EVOL air sleeve significantly reduces the force required to initiate travel for the ultimate in small bump compliance and better bottom-out resistance. When combined with the ultra-low friction Kashima coating, this design offers an incredibly plush feel in every setting. Although dw-link® is inherently efficient on its own, the firm option is fantastic to have on hand for long climbs. These shock features are direct complements to dw-link® suspension tuning and patented position-sensitive anti-squat, giving riders even better traction on steep climbs and over rough trail.

To match the Switchblade’s rear suspension, Pivot paired it with the newest 150mm Fox 36 – the perfect fork to match any trail rider’s need for aggressive, balanced handling on every part of the mountain.

The Details Maketh The Bike
Featured on the Switchblade is Pivot’s ultra-clean, removable front derailleur mount. For those amongst us who want to run two chainrings for maximum range, this mount offers the best shifting performance you can get, utilizing Shimano’s new side-swing front derailleur system. For those who love the simple functionality of 1x systems, remove the front derailleur mount for a smooth looking, clean installation with very little visible evidence of the un-needed hardware.

The Switchblade offers full Di2 electronic integration and easy, clean internal routing of shifters, brakes and droppers via the Pivot Cable Port system.

Other essential details include ultra-quiet, low durometer, rubberized frame protection in all the key places, post mount disc brake mounts for ease of installation and weight savings, and Enduro Max cartridge bearings throughout.
