Erupting onto the scene in 2010 and quickly making a name for itself as one of the most renowned DH machines in the industry, the Pivot Phoenix took podiums by storm, on both sides of the equator. The bike combined ultra-capable geometry for charging harder and faster through the world's toughest DH courses, and now it's back once again, but with a bold new strategy -- 29in wheels. The Pivot Phoenix 29 Carbon Saint Mountain Bike provides the wagon-wheel quick rolling power of 29ers, with the frame's leading edge geometry and carbon fiber for a steed that will stop at nothing (unless you want it to). It combines the deceivingly light carbon frame with Shimano's Saint components for a bomber feel that's burly enough for sheer rock walls, gap jumps, and massive drops to flat, thanks in part to Pivot's proprietary molding technology. With its lofty wheels, the Phoenix 29 aims to rise above its predecessor, with more speed, and improved performance over previous iterations. It came as a brain child of Pivot's designers and its Factory Race Team, who flexed their noggins together to craft a downhill rig that had previously only been constructed in dreams. It packs in all new geometry, suspension design, and a new chassis in order to boost the speed capabilities and stability for roosting down World Cup DH courses. Unlike the linkage of the 27. 5 Phoenix, the 29er boasts lower linkage suspension design, which not only lowers the center of gravity for stability, but also frees up some space for both coil and air shocks, so you can fine tune your ride to your preferences. The Phoenix 29 Carbon features a full-carbon frameset with Pivot's own take on the DW-Link suspension. DW-Link describes an adaptive travel path that balances the suspension to eliminate bob and provide a consistent pedaling platform, even while climbing. Similar to other popular designs in its ability to balance chain-pull and downward pedal stroke, DW-Link takes things a step further with anti-squat f...
