Switchblade 29 Race X01 Eagle Mountain Bike by Pivot
First released in 2016, the original Switchblade helped set the standard for what a modern trail bike should be. With capable geometry, efficient suspension, and the ability to accept both 29-inch and 27. 5 Plus wheels, few bikes could rival its versatility.

The Switchblade V2 geometry moves to a slacker head tube angle, a steeper seat tube angle, longer reach figures, and a shorter seat tube that accommodates longer dropper pos...

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.
