Pivot Cycles Shadowcat Pro XT/XTR

Size: L


Living up to its feline name, the Pivot Cycles Shadowcat 27.5 Pro XT/XTR is light, agile, nimble and on the hunt for adventure. It's a featherweight trail bike that can handle twists and turns with dexterity, but also packs the strength and travel necessary to cope with some serious hits. Every ride is an adrenaline-fuelled roller coaster.

The responsive dw-linkTM suspension works to smooth over bumps with 140mm of travel and keep a tight grip on the singletrack as it ebbs and flows. When you're heading downhill at speed, you'll be glad of the high-calibre, Fox 36 FIT 4 Fork with its impressive 160mm of travel and on-the-fly adjustment options. It's supple, responsive and works with a supportive yet smooth action, for a better ride experience and consistent energy throughout.

Meanwhile, light 27.5″ alloy DT Swiss XM1700 wheels tread the middle ground between optimum agility and optimum rollover efficiency, while wide Maxxis Dissector 27.5″ x 2.4″ tyres enhance your cornering control.

Your confidence on the trail will be boosted further by the powerful, rider tuneable Shimano XT M8120 brakes and the light, high quality Shimano drivetrain, which includes the Shimano XT M8100 10-51t cassette with its matching 12-speed shifter, controlled by the Shimano XTR M9100 SGS Rear Derailleur. This works quickly, smoothly and efficiently to maximise your pedal power on the trails.

If you're looking for a bike with agile and sharp handling that maintains a masterful line on the trails and guarantees a fast, fun and heart-pumping ride, the Shadowcat 27.5 Pro XT/XTR is just the beast for you.
