Firebird Carbon 29 Pro X01 Eagle Mountain Bike by Pivot
If the thought of slapping berms and hitting doubles in the bike park, blasting through multiple high-speed rock gardens on a 3,000-foot descent, or stopping the clock just seconds quicker on a segment is enough to get your heart racing, we can think of a few bikes that'll fit the bill. Now imagine it being lightweight and efficient enough to be able to climb to the top and handle twisty trails. That narrows the playing field significantly and the one that'll continue to ride to the top is the all-new Pivot Firebird Carbon 29 Pro XO1 Eagle Complete Mountain Bike. Big wheels meet 162mm of supple travel, and in conjunction with modern long and slack geometry, your confidence is about to get a major boost as you charge down the steep, burly lines and high-speed chunder. And while this Firebird is no XC whippet, the 29-inch wheels, and efficient DW-link suspension can rack up the backcountry miles better than most bikes in its category. Additionally, Superboost Plus allows Pivot to build super short chainstays for a nimble ride and afford huge tire clearance for 29er tires (up to 2. 6in) or go 27. 5 Plus if you're looking for the ultimate in traction. The Firebird 29 takes design and geometry queues from the 27. 5 Firebird and its Phoenix DH Carbon siblings, with long reaches and 45mm stems across the board. The before mentioned short chainstays, 16. 96-inches, courtesy of the 12 x 157mm Superboost Plus spacing allow for snappy handling, ease of lifting up the front wheel up and over techy climbs and manualing, and quick power transfer. What's also becomes super helpful in the climbing department is its relatively steep seat tube angle of 74. 5 to 75-degrees (based on adjustable flip-chip position and lower headset cup selection) placing you right over the pedals and helping to eliminate a wandering front wheel on steep switchback climbs, while the 65. 5 to 65-degree head tube angle lengthens the bike's wheelbase providing excellent stability and it just gets better...
