Pivot Cycles: Performance Redefined
Pivot Cycles is the brainchild of two industry gurus - Chris Cocalis (founder of Titus) and Dave Weagal (inventor of the DW Link). The DW-link suspension design produces the ultimate ride. The perfect balance of traction, acceleration, square edge bump performance, superior braking, and the ability to handle big hits with ease is what Pivot bikes are known for. The DW-link's patented position sensitive anti-squat eliminates pedal bob during hard pedaling and gives the bike additional traction while climbing, as well as helping propel the bike forward during sprinting. No wonder Pivot won two of the "Best Of Mtbr.com 2009" in Full Suspension XC and Full Suspension All Mountain categories.

DW-Link design starts out with a slightly rearward travel path for better square edge bump performance and then goes to a more vertical path, remaining active throughout the travel. The DW-Link truly allows the tunability to give the rider the best pedaling performance possible without sacrificing braking or suspension feel. Simply put, the DW-Link is the next level of suspension design.
Integrated Bottom Bracket
Pivot is the first frame manufacturer of its kind to feature a 92mm wide bottom bracket shell with internal Shimano XTR bearings. There are no external washers or threads in the shell. The bearings are housed in light composite resin cups with a full sealed sleeve to keep out the elements. This design allows for easy crank installation with no frame facing or special spacers required. The system works with Shimano, FSA and Race Face cranks.
Zero Stack Headset
The Mach 4, 5 and 429 use a zero stack headset that takes normal cups like an external 1.125 headset, but the entire headset cup fits inside. As forks get longer and tires grow bigger, front end heights continue to skyrocket. This is not such a problem for a 6 foot tall person, but for just about everyone else (particularly the under 5’ 8” crowd), this reduces the front end height by over 1 inch.
Tubing, Forging and Welding
Pivot tubes are triple butted and hydro-formed proprietary 6000 series aluminum. In addition, every other part on the frame (other than the head tube) is cold forged. Forging is significantly more expensive but yields a much stronger, lighter frame. Pivot frames feature a combination of traditional and smooth welds to keep things smooth and snag free.

Pivot Mach 5.7 Full Suspension MTB
The heart of the Mach 5.7 lies in its dw-link suspension design. With its position-sensitive anti-squat design, the Mach 5.7 offers 5.7 inches (145mm) of travel goodness. A flatter spring curve takes advantage of the Fox RP23's Boost Valve design allowing for a smoother transition into the middle of the travel while maintaining excellent bottoming resistance for a feeling of nearly endless travel.
You really understand the soul of the Mach 5.7 when you hop on, hit the trail and conquer the mountain. The dw-link suspension design allows us to add travel, and lower bottom bracket heights, while maintaining the pedaling efficiency of the current Mach 5, but with a much plusher feel and more stable handling.
Pivot Mach 429 29er Full Suspension MTB
One of the great features of the Mach 429 is the zero stack headset design. The headset is a standard 1.125" size that fits inside a larger diameter head tube. It makes for a stronger, lighter frame, but most importantly has the ability to lower the front end by over an inch vs. a conventional headset. With the taller forks and wheels of a 29er, the lower front end is a welcomed feature for most riders. You can get the fit you need without resorting to negative rise stems.
The 429's rear triangle and carbon fiber upper link are works of art, just begging for you to try and get them to flex. The swingarm is stout without sacrificing tire clearance. The rear triangle's two uprights are designed specifically for the demands of bigger wheels. They are stiff and strong in all the right places, while eliminating the need for a brake bridge up top.
