LES 29 Carbon Race X01 Eagle Complete Mountain Bike by Pivot
If you're on the prowl for a stiff race bike that's ready to take over podiums left and right, it can be easy to nitpick the options, and while many rides have their shortcomings, we're struggling to find them on the 2018 Pivot LES 29 Carbon Race X01 Eagle Complete Mountain Bike.

All told, the latest model is a claimed 50g lighter than the previous LES. This weight loss is largely attributed to updated carbon fiber construction, with hollow core construction featuring an internal-mandrel process, but the new Swinger II dropout system also had something to do with the weight savings, as it's lighter than the original Swinger. Lower weight may sometimes pair its self with less efficiency, however the Swinger II interface is actually stiffer, which is most likely caused by the stretched out rear hub that was updated to Boost 148mm rear axle spacing.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
