Pivot Cycles Gets Aggressive with the New Mach 6 Carbon and Mach 6 Aluminum

10.02.2017 | News

The Mach 6 family of enduro bikes sets a new benchmark with size-specific geometry.

Already known as the most versatile bike in enduro, Pivot Cycles is stoked to introduce the new Mach 6 family of aggressive enduro / trail  bikes. Benefiting directly from Pivot’s extensive gravity experience ­– both the new Mach 6 Carbon and Mach 6 Aluminum offer progressive geometry and uncompromising pedaling capability. With new size specific geometry, the Medium, Large and Extra-Large Mach 6 sizes feature a new, slacker, 65.75-degree head angle and steep 74-degree seat angle with long enduro-style reach measurements, while the Small and Extra Small sizes offer a new 73-degree seat angle and a compact reach for small riders.

Pivot’s long travel, downhill-influenced linkage, the 155mm travel Mach 6 models are specifically designed for enduro racers who are truly pushing their limits and looking for every advantage in technical terrain. Descending, riders are “in” the cockpit rather than above, experiencing stability and control at high speeds, incredible rollover capability on technical trail features, and light, flickable, handling that attests to the influence of riders like Rupert Chapman and the ever-stylish Bernard Kerr.

“The Mach 6 Carbon is one of the most loved Pivot designs, ever.”, said Pivot President and CEO Chris Cocalis, continuing “This new design offers the liveliness, climbing chops and flickability of our trail bikes with the unwavering stability and big hit capability of our long travel models. It’s both the ultimate enduro machine and the right choice for aggressive, technical trail riding.”

The Mach 6 Carbon and Aluminum incorporate all of Pivot’s best technologies, from high-performance dw-link™ suspension and linkage design to hollow core internal carbon molding or variable-wall-thickness aluminum hydroforming to achieve the exact same stiffness and ride performance qualities across all models and materials.
