Fan The Flames
Built to take on rough trails, big jumps, bike park laps, and all-day backcountry rides without compromise,
Pivot's new Firebird 29 is a definitive enduro machine.
With ample travel paired with big wheels, one would rightly expect it to feel invincible when the trail gets truly scary. But its efficient dw-link suspension, roomy cockpit, and painstakingly refined chassis help it feel welcoming hours into a ride, whether it's day two of an enduro race weekend or taking on your favorite epic ride. If you think that a long travel, aggressively focused 29'er can't be versatile, the Firebird 29 will force you to reevaluate that belief.
With a whopping 162mm of travel out back mated to a 170mm fork, the Firebird 29 is a big wheeled battle axe that mows through rock gardens with abandon and forgives all but the most egregious of rider errors. The short offset fork enhances the front-end stability, while the tucked in 431mm chainstays maintain a sensation of quickness when changing directions. And the use of 12 x 157mm Super Boost spacing maximizes rear end stiffness and allows real world clearance for 29 x 2.6 inch tires, delivering maximum grip in loose terrain. And although the frame weighs in at an impressively light 7lbs with a shock, it's rugged enough to be backed by Pivot's no nonsense 10 year warranty. For enduro racers seeking a competitive advantage and aggressive riders looking to up the ante, the Firebird 29 is exactly the ride you've been waiting for.
