Pivot Cycles Mach 6 27.5 Pro XT/XTR – Air

Size: L


The Pivot Cycles Mach 6 27.5 Pro XT/XTR – Air is ideally suited for days spent playing at the bike park or competing in high-octane enduro races on technical trails. It's designed to offer speed and stability on rough ground, as well as supreme comfort, thanks to an impressive 160mm of front travel and 158mm of rear travel offered by its suspension, not to mention a boost provided by Fox Live Valve options.

The frame is built with aggressive geometry, tailored as standard through Pivot Cycles' Hollow Core moulding technology to offer the perfect ride to cyclists of all sizes. This may also be adjusted through use of the flip chip to allow you to lower the BB setting on steep, technical terrain or raise it, to steepen the head angle for a “reverse mullet” setup or achieve better handling, while climbing or navigating root-covered ground and tight terrain.

The robust frame is capable of coping with shocks and impacts with aplomb, thanks to its construction from high grade carbon fibre and its Super Boost Plus 157 rear spacing, which leads to improved tyre and mud clearance, better frame stiffness and an extra durable rear wheel setup.

This drives a performance enhancement for the 27.5″ wheelset, chosen to allow this bike to build up speed more quickly, climb with better efficiency, and make quicker adjustments and turns than it could with 29” wheels. At the same time as offering a fun, pacey ride, 27.5″ wheels are extremely stable and capable of rolling over rough ground smoothly.

Meanwhile, the extra-long dw-linkTM suspension, inspired by Pivot Cycles' hardy Phoenix DH bike, also helps to smooth over bumps for a comfortable ride. The impressive travel offered by the combination of a highly sensitive and adjustable, corrosion resistant air-sprung Fox Factory Float X2 shock, with outstanding high and low speed rebound and compression, and the incredibly stiff, durable Fox Factory 36 GRIP2 Fork will keep you from bottoming out and damaging your bike, while offering a plush feel over the most bone-shaking trails.

This outstanding chatter and impact management is enhanced by the Fox Live Valve electronically controlled suspension system, which can be turned on when required and controlled through the Live Valve Bike App. It will monitor the ground you're riding over and automatically adjust the suspension to suit, guaranteeing an ultra-smooth ride even when you're pushing your limits.

As the terrain changes, you'll maintain that optimum ride feel with the help of the Shimano XT M8100 cassette and shifter, not to mention the hugely secure Shimano XTR SGS rear derailleur. And, if you need to stop in a hurry, the Shimano XT M8120 4-piston brakes offer precise, fast action and can be adjusted to be within reach whenever needed.

If you live to throw your bike down obstacle-strewn trails at a high speed, then the Pivot Cycles Mach 6 27.5 Pro XT/XTR – Air is for you. It's a fun, fiery enduro specialist that laughs at rough terrain while maintaining a fast pace and a luxurious ride feel.
