From the jump line to the pump track or even tearing it up at your local skate park, it’s always great to have a bike like the Point in your stable. The Point was developed with some of the best riders in the world and like all Pivot bikes, brings a higher level of performance to the party. We feel it’s the best dirt jump/park bike ever made. We know that’s a strong statement, but after developing the Point with Kyle Strait in 2010 and then winning this year’s Men’s Pro FMB Tour Jump and Jam at the at the Santa Cruz Mountain bike festival under Jeff Herbertson, our claims are well founded.
The Point is built from the highest grade DMR chromoly steel with perfectly tuned geometry and feel. Its roomy cockpit, combined with super short chainstays, ISCG 05 mounts, interchangeable dropout and a 1.5” tapered head tube make for a bike that provides go-big confidence in all situations. The Point feels amazingly solid with a snappy liveliness that inspires confidence and an incredibly high fun factor. Whether you’re hitting the local pump track or going for the best trick win at Crankworx, the Pivot Point is the bike you need to own.

Jeff Herbertson, Pivot's resident dirt jump genius, worked with Alex Reveles and Ian Collins to produce some amazing photos and video from the last days of a dirt jump legend:
"Post Office has been a very special place to a lot of people. In 2008 I visited Aptos, and rode Post Office for the first time. I was very timid, sketchy, and amazed. Within a year, I had packed up my truck and moved to Santa Cruz,...

The Point only comes in one size, which will generally fit riders between 5’6” to 6’4”.
The Point uses a threaded 73mm shell that is compatible with just about every possible MTB crank in the market.
We supply the frame with standard 135mm vertical dropouts. Horizontal dropouts are available from Pivot if you want to run singlespeed. If you want to run a 12x142 thru axle you will need to order the dropouts from DMR (SwopOut system).
The Point frame uses a 27.2mm seatpost.
The Point frame uses a 30.0mm seatpost clamp, which is provided with the frame.
If you are determined, a 27.2mm dropper post will work on this frame.
No. The frame is not designed to accommodate a front derailleur and does not have cable stops.
Yes. The frame is equipped with ISCG-05 tabs, so most chain guides that are made for ISCG-05 tabs should work.
For the Pivot Point, we use an integrated style headset. The upper bearing measures 1-1/8" with 45°/45° ACB & has an OD of 46mm. The lower bearing measures 1-1/2" with 36°/45° ACB & has an OD of 56mm.
The Point is designed to easily accept most 2.3 tires in the market. For wider tires, there are lots of options that will fit. However, we suggest you check the fit with your chosen rim and tire combination to make sure it has proper clearance. We have found that rim width, tire manufacture sizing call outs and/or tire size inconsistency can result in huge difference among both tire brands and individual tires.
The Point will clear either a 160mm or 180mm rotor.
You will need an IS to post mount adaptor. They are offered in both 160mm and 180mm versions.
The Point was designed for either a 100mm or 120mm fork. The maximum travel length that can be used on the Point is 130mm travel.
