Product Description
Mach 5.5 Carbon Pro XTR Mountain Bike by Pivot
If we were to take a vote to find out what the ideal weekend consists of throughout the Competitive Cyclist office, chances are strong that the results would land almost unanimously at high climbs up the Wasatch Mountains to our East, followed by rock-gobbling descents that dwarf the downhills in our Arkansas roots. And while a few years back we'd have to pick between a bike that's ready to take on the climbs, or a bike built for descents, we're fortunate to live in a time where bikes have gotten progressively better at both, and Pivot's Mach 5. 5 Carbon Pro XTR Complete Mountain Bike provides just the pedaling platform we yearn for in both applications. It features progressive geometry that's longer, slacker, and lower, like we've seen in many other bikes these days, but partners this up with the coveted DW-link suspension designed to gobble up square-edge hits, rock rolls, and root-latticed singletrack.

The Mach 5. 5 Carbon retains the sought-after attributes of the DW-Link suspension platform, namely the ability to claw up the steepest, chunkiest climbs and soak up square-edge hits with unbelievable composure on the way down. Once you've reached the summit after a lengthy climb, 5. 5 inches of rear travel gobbles up loose rocks and smooths out successive square-edge hits when you're bombing downhill at high speeds. It's all party up front, with 6 inches of travel instilling confidence for rallying over rough sections littered with boulders, loose rocks, and speed-impeding root sections. This 20-millimeter disparity between front and rear travel gives you a bit more efficiency for pedaling, but with extra plushness up front for cleaning notoriously technical stretches of trail. Realizing the industry is ever-shifting, it makes perfect sense to see the Mac...

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.
