Pivot Mach 429 Carbon Trail

The Pivot Mach 429 Trail redefines all the preconceptions you would have about a short travel XC bike! To start with, it looks stunning. Its 29” wheels, boost spacing rear hub and full high compression moulding carbon frame means that you have an exceptionally capable and well balanced trail bike. The 429 Trail has exceptional pedalling efficiency and small bump sensitivity thanks it the DW link. Where is breaks away from its XC roots is with its short chainstays, which allow it to feel fast and flickable.

We love how it shares the linkage with the Phoenix downhill, giving it a bottomless feel. The Mach 429 Trail coupled with a stiffer fork than you would normally find on an XC bikes give huge capability. A bike not to be overlooked, or put into the “It couldn’t handle that” category. It spurs you on to always go faster, push harder and dig deeper.
