Pivot Cycles Shadowcat Ride SLX/XT

Size: M


Living up to its feline name, the Pivot Cycles Shadowcat 27.5 Ride SLX/XT 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 enduro-friendly, easily set up Fox Performance 36 GRIP fork with its 160mm of travel. It works with a supportive and plush action to create a better ride experience.

Meanwhile, wide and robust 27.5″ alloy DT Swiss M1900 wheels, combined with 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 and dependable Shimano SLX M7120 brakes and the quality Shimano drivetrain, which includes the Shimano SLX M7100 10-51t cassette with its matching 12-speed shifter and Shimano XT M8100 Rear Derailleur. This works 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 Ride SLX/XT is just the beast for you.
