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.

A classic in the making. Its definitely one of the best 5" travel bikes on the market and for good reason. The Infinity switch suspension on this bike makes it an outstanding performer both climbing and descending with amazing cornering properties. The suspension stays really stiff when not in use allowing for an extremely efficient power transfer. Its definitely a rocket ship and will certainly take your ride experience to the next level.
If you have specific questions with this bike do not hesitate to contact me direct.

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.

Very versitale bike as you can run this as a 29r when you are in rockier environments or like this set up when you want an awesome 27.5 performer. an excellent choice for winter riding as you can run much bigger tires with the 27.5+ set up. Im very excited about this bike and love the idea of a one bike-do it all kinda ride. If you have specific questions with this bike do not hesitate to contact me direct .

We can also custom build this bike so let me know if you would like a quote.

This bike is an amazing value.I have had the opportunity of riding this bike several times and really enjoyed ripping it around the trails of Utah. Its very well rounded. Most definitely a race machine as it is stiff and lightweight but its also a very comfortable hardtail and ideal for doing longer rides as well.. This is largely due to the over sized tubes,big tires and clever carbon layup by Niner. The icing on the cake for this build is the sweet X01 drive train (1x11) The X01 is extremely efficient on the trail. Say goodbye to chain throwing with this set up! It shaves weight too . If you have never experienced 1x11 on the trail its time to make the switch. I highly recommend adding this stud to your stable.

***This is a custom build so components can be switched out .Feel free to reach out to me direct for questions or guidance wbranham@competitivecyclist.com or 801-736-6396 x 4074

*** we do have XS's and XL's available in the Silver color too although they are not showing on the website. We are currently sold out of XL,s in the orange color.

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!
