Switchblade 29 Team XTR Live Valve Reynolds Mountain Bike by Pivot
Few bikes can drop in on the burliest trails and steepest lines with the composure of an enduro sled, and then turn around and conquer technical climbs and big-mileage days like a cross-country race rocket.

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 posts than the previous model.
