Trail royalty.

Lauded for its ability to climb with the best, descend on rails, and push limits in all directions, the 2016 Pivot Mach 429SL Carbon X01 Complete Mountain Bike clocks in at a half pound lighter than its predecessor, the 429 Carbon, enhancing those coveted ride qualities and silencing any gram-conscious complaints. Paired with a stellar build kit consisting of plush FOX suspension, a SRAM X01 one-by drivetrain, SRAM Guide RS hydraulic disc brakes, a set of smooth rolling DT Spline hoops, and a Boost axle up front, this bike is ready to race with no alterations.

Pivot achieved that massive weight reduction with its proprietary hollow-core, internal-mandrel technology, the same process that was employed for the original 429 Carbon. Pivot scrutinized its 429 layup, refining both the structure and the composite materials used. As a result of those efforts, the podium-hungry Mach 429SL Carbon is one of the lightest full-suspension frames Pivot has ever made, and it doesn't involve any sacrifices to stiffness or ride quality.

The Mach 429SL Carbon features a proven DW-link suspension design, which yields 100mm of smooth travel while also counteracting speed-robbing bob forces. This translates to consistent contact with the trail and race-worthy acceleration. Stand up and stomp on the pedals and you’ll be amazed at the grip you get on loose dirt. Pivot worked closely with FOX on the Float Kashima Factory shock tune, so the 429SL's suspension and shock combine to provide travel that’s responsive, predictable, and uses every available millimeter. As with prior iterations of the Mach 429, you’ll feel like you’re riding a bike with much more travel.

Full-length internal cable routing, including internal routing for a dropper post, keeps everything tidy and quiet with sleek, clean lines. This frame can be paired with a 100mm fork for pure XC speed, but here it’s presented with a FOX 34 Factory 29in 120mm Kashima Boost fork for increased versatility and confidence on rough trails. The longer fork will slacken the ride a bit, but with DW-link suspension in back, the Mach 429SL rides high in its travel, so you won’t experience any front-end wandering on climbs.

One of the best!

    What an amazing bike! I own this bike and I must say I am most impressed. I had the standard 429 last year and loved the geo and the ride quality but it was a bit heavy. I was delighted to see that Pivot found a way to knock of 1/2 pound of weight and stiffen the frame on the new out a bit on the new 429 SL. SO MUCH BETTER. The bike already handled fantastic but now with a little stiffer/lighter frame its super playful and you can really hammer the power and it gives as much as you give it! Fast and Fun sums it up. If you are looking for a light weight XC- Epic ride type bike then look no further.

    ** If you have general questions or need help ordering feel free to contact me direct. We can do some minor swaps of components.
