Rocket.

The Pivot Mach 6 earned its accolades as a hard-hitting all-mountain whip that can keep up on the climbs with the speedy cross-country crowd. This year, it gets a few updates in line with the trend towards bigger, slacker, downhill-influenced enduro design for a stiffer, snappier ride without compromising its climbing ability. The 2016 Pivot Mach 6 Carbon XT/XTR Pro Complete Mountain Bike is kitted out with a mix of Shimano XT and XTR componentry and a silky smooth set of DT Spline hoops, making it a race-ready machine chomping at the bit to tackle the trail.

The frame's updates manifest primarily in the rear triangle, where the influence of Pivot's downhill demon, the Phoenix, surfaces most apparently. The double wishbone rear triangle is clearly carrying some DH DNA, and it's combined with an ambitious upper linkage design that's 40% wider and engages the frame with larger bearings.

Pivot continues the oversized trend in the rear axle with a new Boost 148mm standard. Boost 148 ushers the Mach 6 into the modern era of enduro, where tech seems to always be straddling the present and the future, trail riding and DH. The cumulative effect of these changes is a claimed 150% increase in rear triangle stiffness, meaning that — though the new Mach 6 leaves a wide, DH footprint — it still climbs more like a four-inch XC bike.

The DW-Link suspension design governing the Mach 6's six-inches of travel also does its part to maintain a secure climbing hold on rocky trails. Its anti-squat tendencies maintain a firm pedaling platform while cleaning terrain-riddled cruxes or picking lines with abandon across trail furniture. That responsiveness is matched on the opposite end of travel with a square-edge capacity that feels virtually bottomless, so time saved on the climbs isn't lost because of overly cautious descending.

The bike's changes are finished off with re-imagined internal routing, which accommodates mechanical groups with a more intuitive, clean system, and slots a Di2 battery in the seat tube from below for easy installation and maintenance. A returning feature worth mentioning is the PressFit 92 bottom bracket, which Pivot was on the leading edge of implementing and which finally has an equally stiff partner in the Boost rear axle.

Pivot's hollow-core internal molding process also returns for uniform, controlled wall thicknesses and material distribution. This process virtually eliminates inconsistencies and resin pooling, increasing structural integrity while targeting areas for weight loss. The frame's slacked-out geometry and stubby, 17in chainstays mean it's slack enough to challenge lines across enduro rock gardens but nimble enough to pick its way through eight-inch terrain — all while sticking climbs and roosting berms with an eagerness that begs to be pushed to the ragged edge of control.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

These days the folks want a bike that can decidedly do it all. This may seem like a tall order, but you will find many manufacturers claiming just this. Well Pivot delivered! The Mach 6 has undergone a few changes over the years, and the latest iteration with shorter chainstays thanks to Boost spacing and a borrowed rear-triangle design from its cousin-The Phoenix- makes this bike very capable

From the word go, this machine will amaze you. Technical rock gardens and chunky boulders- done. Tight corners on loose terrain- check. Huck to flat and bone-rattling descents- simple. This thing climbs like a mountain goat, and if you can keep your power to the wheels, you will have no problem managing difficult ascents. A true all-rounder.

If you are in the market for a quiver-killing machine, look no further. The Mach 6 has you covered in every contingency and Chuck Norris would be proud to own one.

If you want additional info, hit me up and lets talk.

Boost

    Pivot is sending these bikes out with a boost rear and non boost fork for the time being as the Fox 36 is not available in boost yet. However-we can custom build this bike in a full boost with a Rockshox Pike. Having a boost front and rear maximizes the benefits of this new technology and highly recommended.Contact me direct if you need help with a build or quote.

    Gen 2 of an enduro classic!

      I’m very excited about the second generation of this enduro classic. It’s designed for riders looking to hammer the trails both up and down on a super versatile, dynamic trail bike. A few highlights on handling that sets it apart:
      The DW Link suspension that was specifically designed for 6.1 inches of rear wheel travel which makes for an ultra-efficient climber, paired with the “hollow box” ,high compression carbon frame which is light and stiff. You can effectively assault any climb with confidence and vigor.
      With impressively short chain stays and a long front end- paired with a short stem makes for a feel as if it were cornering on rails which allows you to dive hard and fast around even the most twitchy trails. It has a very even weight disbursement and the lower bottom bracket keeps your center of gravity low making it handle like a dream. Adding to its impressive handling is the new boost standard making the bike very,very laterally stiff. The balanced geometry makes for a very dynamic descender as well rounding out this impressive bike.
      These are just a few of the characteristics of this awesome ride from an awesome company.Pivot knows what it means to be a mtn biker and you will be a believer with your first ride. If you have the means I highly recommend picking one up.
      If you have specific questions or need help configuring this bike do not hesitate to contact me direct.
