29 OR 27.5+--YOUR CHOICE
Interested in turning out the fastest lap times? Go 29er. Looking to conquer rocks, roots and loose terrain? The stability and traction of a wider 2.8 or 3.0” tire is a great choice. The Trail 429 gives you both options with no sacrifice in geometry or handling. That's a rare thing. So, how'd they achieve it? They equipped the new Trail 429 with Super Boost Plus rear spacing. Super Boost adds strength and stiffness to the wheels and chassis (without also adding weight), but Super Boost Plus also enables us to give the Trail 429 a short rear center for nimble handling while providing outstanding tire clearance for both 29 and 27.5+ wheel and tire combinations.
TUNED FOR THE TRAIL
Dave Weagle's dw-link™ design is renowned for providing great traction and downhill control without adding energy-sucking suspension bob or “squat”—that's also why it's the heart of the Trail 429. We've paired that class-leading dw-link® suspension with custom-tuned Fox Float DPS (Dual Piston System) and DPX2 shocks that give the Trail 429 120 millimeters of smooth and controlled rear suspension. The metric-sized Fox DPS shock features an extremely positive “firm” position that makes easy work of long fire-road climbs, while the DPX2 shock option offers unrivaled, fade-free performance on the longest, technical descents. To match the Mach 429 Trail's deep-feeling rear suspension, we've equipped each model with a 130mm Fox 34 suspension fork.
BRILLIANT BIKES FOR EVERY SIZE OF RIDER
Pivot believe the bike should fit the rider, not the other way around. That's why the Trail 429 is offered in a wide range of sizes that fit riders from 4'11” to 6'7”. What's more, their rider size-specific geometry creates a balanced fit and adjusted geometry that gives you optimal wheelbase length and handling. Pivot's smaller-sized frames are built with shorter head tubes that create more stand-over height, which places riders in a centered, confident position with tons of clearance over the top tube. Balanced fit and feel—it's why riders of every size can descend and corner on a Pivot with the highest confidence and speed. DW-LINK
SUPERIOR TRACTION IN ALL CONDITIONS
- dw-link® enables us to precisely control the rear axle's path. The result? You maintain momentum and traction over the roughest terrain—whether it's on technical climbs or boulder-strewn descents.
TOTAL CONTROL WHEN YOU NEED IT MOST - Other suspension systems stiffen and become harsh when you hit the brakes. On a Pivot, the dw-link® suspension remains smooth and active, even when you grab the brakes during a hectic descent. You've got complete control when you need it most.
INCREDIBLE FRAME STIFFNESS - Pivot frames are renowned for their precise handling. Our one-piece rear triangles, oversize pivots and short dual links eliminate flex, boost bearing life and improve your every ride.
NO WASTED ENERGY - dw-link® suspension doesn't squat or bob when you pedal, nor does it require any levers, buttons or gadgets to achieve maximum pedaling efficiency. All of your power output is focused on producing forward momentum and climbing speed. PIVOT CARBON
Through the employ of hard internal forms for both layup and the molding process, pivot achieve more consistent pressures, the highest level of material compaction, and extremely tight tolerances over the entire frame structure. This ultra-precise layup method can be optimized to achieve ideal handling characteristics for every model's purpose and for every size in the line up, enabling you to experience renowned Pivot ride quality on every trail. CABLE PORT SYSTEM
No more fishing for cables, no more rattles due to loose housing – Pivot future-proof internal system offers huge access ports for fast assembly, universal housing clamps that keep your Pivot quiet, full Shimano Di2 integration, and future-proof compatibility with all gearing and dropper configurations.
THE IDEAL ALL-AROUNDER
Pivot took the original Mach 429 Trail and shortened the chainstays to make it even more agile in tight corners. Then we added a bit more stability to the mix by increasing the bike's reach and relaxing its head angle. Finally, we steepened the seat angle to provide an optimal climbing position.
The end result is a bike that's calm and neutral on steep technical terrain, yet fun and flickable on the most twisted trails.
