Pivot's Vault Frameset is all-new and adds some interesting features and designs that further extends its all-around, ride anything capabilities. It looked closely at the ever-popular gravel scene, didn't neglect its 'cross roots, and confirmed its placing as a mountain biker's road bike with some innovative frame details that simply make it faster, more comfortable, and more capable than ever before. Its design goals were increased compliance, more clearance, and extra mounts that boost its performance over gravel, on the cross course, and the weekday world's loop. A quick glance at the tech specs reveals all of the current frame standards while a peek at the geo numbers show a frame that offers added stability at speed over rough terrain. That conspires with a new carbon layup that offers a responsive, comfortable ride with the efficiency we've come to expect from Pivot. First up is the bike's geometry. Pivot has carefully refined it for cross, gravel, or road and it pretty much excels on any surface. Thanks to its new dropped chainstay design, the stays sit at a decidedly stubby 420mm, whacking some 5mm off of the already impressive 425mm length found on the previous versions of the Vault. This not only helps keep the frame nimble and the wheelbase tight, but it also makes for more efficient power transfer. You'd be excused for thinking the shorter stays limit tire clearance, in fact, clearance is increased everywhere from the massive 700x47mm or road plus 650x2. 0in tires to the more welcoming crank and chainring clearance, right down to the non-driveside crank clearing crankarm based power meters. The stays complement the returning BB386EVO bottom bracket shell that reduces watts lost to waggle and flex while sprinting out of hairpins or hammering up climbs that amount to 5-digit elevation days. Also returning is the tapered head tube, oversized steerer tube, and 12mm thru-axles front and rear that also contribute to overall stiffness while keeping the Vau...

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.
