Take to the trails.

Pivot's award winning Mach 429 Trail 27.5+ XT Race 1x Complete Mountain Bike is back for 2017 with boosted axles and plus-sized compatibility for a ride that's equal parts confidence-inspiring, plushly smooth, and all-out fun. Kitted out with a blend of Shimano componentry that balances durability, light weight, and cost, this build draws inspiration from the dichotomous worlds of XC and enduro to bring snappy speed and big hit durability to nearly any terrain.

The 429 Trail's DW-Link suspension owes its capabilities to a handful of queues taken from the Mach 6 and Phoenix, teasing a virtual depth out of the 4.5in of travel that feels closer to a proper 5in trail bike. The canny cyclist may spot elements of Pivot's DH clevis and enduro lower linkage in this model, but the new upper linkage translates those big-hit designs to the traction-focused language of a trail bike. By bringing the 429SL's small-bump compliance and race-worthy trail-contact into conversation with the Mach 6's terrain-erasing capabilities, the 429 Trail defines the crossroads where XC speed meets fearless enduro aggression.

The frame itself begins life with Pivot's hollow-core internal molding process 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 rises from the mold with a 67.5-degree head tube angle and relatively stubby chainstays, making it slack enough to challenge lines across rock gardens but nimble enough to pick its way through enduro-grade terrain—all while sticking climbs and roosting berms in the manner that made us fall in love with its immediate predecessor, the 429SL.

The wide PF92 bottom bracket anchors the stiff Boost axles, accommodating wider pivot placement for longer life in the suspension's bearings and a stiffer rear triangle. We suspect that the PF92/Boost 148 collaboration is also responsible for the room to slam the rear wheel up and shorten the chainstays, making for even more power-transferring efficiency and the nimbleness described above.

  • A versatile 27.5+ trail bike that borrows queues from XC and enduro
  • 4.5in of responsive DW-Link suspension
  • Geometry sits on the slack side of moderate to clean bigger lines
  • Pivot's carbon construction balances light weight and stiffness
  • Beefy axles boost stiffness for a snappy ride
  • External cable routing reduces cost and makes for easy maintenance
  • Shimano build kit blends workhorse reliability and precise shifting
