Switchblade Carbon 29 Pro X01 Eagle Mountain Bike - 2018 by Pivot
Your friends might think you're on a warpath when you hit the trails on the 2018 Pivot Switchblade Carbon 29 Pro X01 Eagle Complete Mountain Bike, and we can't entirely blame them, its versatility and all-around trail hungry geometry puts it among the top all-mountain trail weapons we've been able to get out hands on. Its 2017 release showed us just how far Pivot's engineers wanted to push Boost axle standards, allowing for more room than before for tire clearance, while shortening chainstays and keeping your Q-factor where it's comfortable. This trail-ready machine is ready to conquer the whole mountain, and slide its way from trail to enduro and back again, thanks to its beefy 150mm fork that soaks up big hits, while 135mm of DW-link suspension comes along to lock your traction to the ground when powering up long climbs. This model is paired with the huge, versatile gearing of SRAM's X01 eagle, to keep you pedaling though the techiest terrain filled with big power moves, and a full FOX suspension, to soak up the chunder when things get a bit rowdy. Not content with merely rocking the Boost standards now ubiquitous with plus-sized rigs and aggressive 29ers, Pivot invented their own Super Boost Plus 157 axle for the rear end. This new axle standard adds an additional 9 millimeters of room to the rear axle, which results in 12 millimeters of additional tire clearance. Essentially, it combines a DH chainline with a typical 5-inch bike's Q-factor and heel clearance. The introduction of a gravity-sized rear axle has serious implications for an aggressive all-mountain rig, and these implications travel far beyond the dramatic increase in wheel stiffness afforded by its spoke bracing angle. The biggest effect of the Super Boost rear hub is that the Switchblade enjoys the clearance to run traditional 29-inch hoops, or if you're feeling it, you can add an additional element of bump compliance and traction with 27. 5+ wheels and tires. Either way, the extra-wide spaci...

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.
