Pivot Firebird Review, MTB-MAG: Enduro World Series Performance
02.28.2017 | News
How does the Pivot Firebird perform in the serious EWS terrain of the European mountains?
Check out this Pivot Firebird review from MTB-MAG.com in Italy – they took the bike to the Alps and tested on Enduro World Series -style terrain:
“The Pivot Firebird is a bike for charging hard, for those who love full speed on the downhills but still enjoy sweating (a lot) to conquer the top of the climbs. The more you let it flow, the more you’ll enjoy the bike, in particular on fast corners, where you can lay into them and pick up speed; thanks to a well balanced geometry with a long reach and a short rear triangle combined with a great overall stiffness. The rear suspension is one of the best on the market, thanks to the DW link and the Fox Float X2.”
About the Pivot Firebird
The Firebird is the no-compromise, Holy Grail of long travel mountain bikes – both an enduro bike that devours park runs and a technical climber that relishes huge lines and blazing descents. Building on its reputation as the bike for all-day missions on black diamond terrain, the Firebird features Phoenix DH-inspired long reach measurements combined with a 65-degree head angle to deliver unmatched stability and handling.
For enduro racers, the tough and light Firebird’s peerless climbing traction, descending capability and instant acceleration makes this the perfect choice for the steep courses of the Enduro World Series. For park riders, the Firebird’s long front-center and short chainstay combination provides that nimble, snappy feel that encourages bold line choices while staying fully in control at World Cup speeds.
