Product Description
LES SL Carbon Mountain Bike Frame by Pivot
We love a good full suspension bike, but when it comes to cross-country and marathon racing, a lightweight hardtail can often be a faster choice, allowing you to transfer more of your energy into forward momentum instead of losing it to the unwanted movement of the rear suspension. That's why we're happy to carry Pivot's new LES SL, which happens to be one of the lightest race bikes we've ever thrown a leg over. With a size medium frame weighing in at only 2. 3lb, it's well over half a pound lighter than its predecessor. That doesn't mean this bike flexes like a wet noodle under power though, because Pivot's expertise in carbon fiber allows them to craft a frame with a high stiffness to weight ratio, all while maintaining the legendary ride quality that Pivot is known for. This allows you to save energy over the long haul while providing planted and predictable handling across any trail surface. The LES SL achieves this slimmed down profile thanks to a new carbon lay-up that uses Pivot's proven Hollow Core Molding Technology in conjunction with cutting edge raw materials to create a frame that is both lightweight and stiff, but also has perfectly-tuned compliance so you don't get too beat up when the going gets rough.

Pivot also made the switch to a fully integrated headset, which saves additional grams and also lowers the stack height--both good things for the discerning rider and racer. You'll also appreciate Pivot's innovative Cable Port System, which works flawlessly with any drivetrain, including electronic systems like Di2, and also makes it easy to run a dropper post if desired. The LES SL retains the same progressive XC geometry as its predecessor, characteriz...

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.
