This bike recently was honored for bike of the year through Bike Radar and a few other cycling publications. The reviews speak for themselves. The kit calculator may not show all available options for a custom build and can be a bit tricky in configuring but if we have it on the site we can build it. Often times we have items not listed on the site as well. If you need help in configuring this bike feel free to contact me direct. I'm always happy to oblige!

I had a chance to demo this bike several times in Moab,UT at Outerbike and I really loved the ride quality. This is Pivots lightest frame ever,5.1 lbs in a medium. Even though the bike is extremely lightweight it never felt flexy on the trail making for a very stable platform to crank on. With a relatively short wheel base and a fairly slack head tube angle-68.2 with the 120mm fork i felt it opened up the bike a bit allowing for quick,flick-able turns on the trail and super fast bombing descents. In other words you are not pigeon holed into an XC bike as it is well suited for all mountain terrain too. To sum it up this bike is a very versatile, well rounded steed that's very light weight and responsive on the trail. It definitely left me with a smile on my face and I am 100% sure you will have the same reaction.

We can also custom build this bike often times with better components for around the same price. Hit me up for details.

One of the better XC type bikes we have. This is a custom build so components can be added or swapped. We can also do this build in an X01 group as well. Feel free to reach out to me direct if you need help configuring or have general questions. Always happy to help!

This bike is also available in the Orange color as well.

One of the better deals out there on a proven 29r. This bike performs very well with just enough travel to mix it up in more techy terrain. The component male up is very good but these are custom builds so they can be upgraded or swapped. If you need assistance feel free to reach out to me direct.

This is a great all around bike-well suited for all types of riding. It has a slightly more relaxed geometry so very comfortable in doing longer distances on the bike and the CV technology makes it very smooth on the road. If you need help configuring this bike or have general questions with it fell free to reach out to me direct!

One of my favorite hardtails we offer. The new version of this bike features boost spacing making the bike very laterally stiff which equates to incredible power transfers. Its a very fast and efficient ride and highly recommended!
If you need help configuring this frame or have quesions with it or the new boost spacing feel free to reach out to me direct.

SC launches its newest generation of the Tallboy with more travel,updated geometry and the ability to run it as a 29r or a 27.5+. The 68 degree headtube and 110 mm of VPP travel gives the newest generation much more depth allowing the bike to descend as well as it climbs. That combined with the new boost spacing (incredible lateral stiffness)rounds out this perfect specimen of a trail/XC bike. Flip the chip and run it as a 27.5+ for desert-dry conditions or winter riding allowing you to shred with wider tires and more traction peace of mind.
We have frames expecting to arrive in mid- May so reserve yours today. If you need help with a custom build or have general question feel free to reach out to me direct.

The boost version of this bike is amazing to ride. Very laterally stiff and more agile this bike performs extremely well on all types of trails. Highly recommended!
We also have this frame available in the Fox Float X2 rear shock. Feel free to contact me direct if you have questions or want to order the X2 version.

We do have boost frames available as well. The boost version will be much more laterally stiff. Let me know if anyone has questions with boost or the availability of the boost version. We can also custom build the boost version as well.

What an amazing bike! I just recently had the opportunity of picking one of these up 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.

** Not like a component on the Pivot complete bike? We can also custom build this tailored to your wants. Feel free to hit me up with questions or comments or if you need direction on configuration.

The F8 is one of the best all around performing road bikes on the market. It simply does not lack in an department and sure to give you an edge on race day giving you the tools to perform at your best.I have been on this bike several times and can testify to its stiffness, power transferring ability and climbing attributes. Its very highly recommended if you have the means.
These are custom builds so select components can be swapped or upgraded. We can also do this build on other frame colors as well. If you need help or have general questions feel free to reach out to me direct.
