Mach 429SL Carbon 29 Pro X01 Eagle Mountain Bike - 2018 by Pivot
We find that in the modern world of long-and-low geometry, XC bikes sometimes end up with a bit of a bad rap, and while we won't deny that the longer-travel trail bikes have been upping their game for pedal-ability, we find it's still hard to beat the eagerness and quick handling of a true XC speed demon like the 2018 Pivot Mach 429SL Carbon 29 Pro X01 Eagle Complete Mountain Bike.

Throwing these two features together results in a ride that has incredibly quick, nimble handing, with plush travel to soak up the rocks and roots along the way.

The latest iteration of DW-link is paired with a Fox Float DPS Kashima coated shock that's been fine-tuned specifically for the 429SL. Its tune works to soak up square edge bumps without bobbing and squat, allowing maximum pedaling efficiency when you have long, punchy, and technical c...

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.
