Switchblade Carbon 29 Race X01 Eagle Mountain Bike - 2018 by Pivot
Some of us like to delicately pick out our lines on hard tails -- dancing between rocks, opting for slow and precise riding instead of bump-soaking suspension, and fast laps. But then, some of us like to cut loose, charge into terrain that questions our sanity and asks if we're really ready to get wild. The 2018 Pivot Switchblade Carbon 29 Race X01 Eagle Complete Mountain Bike caters more towards the latter. With 5. 3-inches of plush DW-link suspension that gives us illusions of even deeper travel, and beckons for burlier lines, paired with a slack, long profile, the Switchblade gobbles up loose, rock-cobbled descents with a certain prowess that other bikes only dream of. In its 29er iteration the Switchblade comes forward in its Endruo, race-ready form, rolling quickly over root-lattices and charging switchbacks loaded with power moves and technical sections. And to make things all the sweeter, its paired with a price-point friendly X01 Eagle build to offer you gears to spare, and a plush Fox suspension to soak up the trail ahead.

Another thing to note, the Switchblade's DW-Link suspension uses a Phoenix-inspired, double-wishbone rear triangle that stiffens both the pedaling interface and linkage design. Pivot takes Boost axle standards to entirely new realms with the advent of their Super Boost Plus rear axle spacing. Poking fun at the upward escalation of hub spacing, "Super Boost Plus" refers to Pivot's choice to employ a 157-millimeter rear axle, which in turn allows f...

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.
