Mach 5.5 Carbon Team XX1 Live Valve Mountain Bike by Pivot

The difference in travel between front and rear gives you a bit more pedaling efficiency, with extra plushness up front to soak up chunky rock gardens and bigger hits. The bike industry is ever-evolving so it makes sense that the Mach 5. 5 sees long, low, and slack geometry that's right in l...
