Pivot Trail 429
Picking up where the Mach 429 Trail left off,
Pivot's new Trail 429 is a veritable poster child for the state of the modern trail bike.
The combination of 29 inch wheels, or 27.5 Plus if you prefer, and 120mm of travel paired with a 130mm fork makes for a machine that's fast and efficient, yet forgiving at speed. The roomier reach measurement brings the Trail 429 into line with the sizing of Pivot's other offerings, ensuring a modern-feeling cockpit.
The neutral steering geometry, shorter chainstays, and steeper seat tube angle combine to offer a ride that's spritely and nimble, without giving up composure when pushed to the limit. It all adds up to a machine that's eager to tackle your biggest rides, while leaving enough in reserve to encourage your wilder impulses. Those seeking a balanced trail bike that displays the best traits of the new school would do well to consider the Trail 429.
