Mach 6 Carbon Pro XT 1x Mountain Bike - 2018 by Pivot
Trails and riding styles continue to evolve, and with that, geometries continue to progress. Mountain bikers are a fickle bunch, we want bikes that descend like mini DH sleds and climb like XC machines. Pivot updated the Mach 6 Carbon Pro XT 1x Complete Mountain Bike with tweaks to its geometry, making it more capable downhill, yet the DW-Link suspension works so efficiently, it still pedals very well. Pivot received feedback from its enduro racers and owners. After extensive testing, it created the perfect combination of progressive geometry for high-speed chunder with enough agility so you don't feel like you're parallel parking a limo on tight trails. We're used to seeing bikes excel at the bookends, but it's rare to find one that does both so well. The Mach 6 is ready to crush your next enduro, help you progress in the park, or knock out that big weekend epic with the crew. If you are between the Mach 5. 5 and 6 and are trying to figure out which way to go, both bikes are similar on paper in terms of travel but the Mach 6's geometry and build situate it as more of an all-mountain and enduro bike and the Mach 5. 5 is a pedal-all-day, aggressive trail bike. The Mach 6 Carbon kicks the head tube back to a more stable 65. 75 degrees, and the bike's reach and wheelbase get stretched out a bit, too. Descending, you'll notice that you feel more "in" rather than "on" the bike. The longer and slacker treatment makes the bike rally down high-speed sections and technical terrain with the confidence usually reserved for DH bikes and dual-crown forks. What's amazing is that this imperturbable nature on the downhill doesn't take away from the flickability and pedaling often lost on longer-travel bikes. Climbing up long fireroads and steep, punchy singletrack is aided by the steeper 74-degree seattube angle and longer cockpit as it keeps the front wheel on the ground and you in a more powerful pedaling position. Pivot hails from Tempe, AZ, and they build bikes that are j...

Rising above a scene rich with extraordinary wildlife, pristine lakes, and alpine terrain, the Teton Range stands monument to the people who fought to protect it. These are mountains of the imagination. Mountains that led to the creation of Grand Teton National Park where you can explore over two hundred miles of trails, float the Snake River or enjoy the serenity of this remarkable place.
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.
