Trail 429 Carbon 27.5+ Race XT Mountain Bike by Pivot
The Trail 429 checks off all the major boxes for contemporary race machines. Slacker' Yep. Longer' Mm-hmm. Pedals like a bike with an inch less travel' Oh yeah. It draws obvious parallels from the iconic performance offered by the Mach 429 Trail, building upon the previous model's strengths and updating a few things to make it all the more confident and capable as you plow through chunder, lean into berms at high speeds, and plunge into rocky descents. One of biggest changes with the new model is the ability to run either 29-inch or 27. 5+ wheel sizes, so you can really optimize your trail riding set-up to your particular terrain and individual riding style. This particular build features 27. 5+ wheels rolling on 2. 8-inch Maxxis Rekon Tires for voluminous support and massive grip where you'd previously struggle to find ample traction, such as loose dirt, sandy sections, and rock-strewn trails.

On top of this new geometry, the Trail also sees a feature we've been longing for over the past generations: internal cable routing. This makes for a cleaner setup with cables that are neatly tucked away, and its done without upping the price from its externally-routed forefather. We've had a sneaking suspicion that Pivot's Super Boost spacing wasn't just for the Switchblade, and the new Trail confirms it with a stretched out rear hub that boasts a whopping 157mm width. This wide hub means a ...
