Product Details

2017 Pivot Cycles Switchblade Race XT 1x 27.5+

Purpose-built to meet the demands of enduro and aggressive trail riding, Pivot’s Switchblade is a versatile ripper with a huge advantage no matter where you shred. Combining modern geometry tweaks with a stiff and lightweight carbon frame gives you both unmatched high-speed stability through chunky terrain and effortless split-second manuals over seemingly impossible obstacles. Adding dw-link’s anti-squat and variable wheel travel path means that the Switchblade achieves the best performance in high speed and technical sections while also maintaining precise handling and a poppy ride. Best of all, though, is the Switchblade's ability to accept wheel size changes at the flick of a quick release. Drop the 27.5+ for a set of 29ers and let the miles melt away. Adding to the list of pros is the Pivot Cable Port system which routes shifter, brake, and dropper cables internally for an uber-clean aesthetic. This Race XT 1x build features Shimano's dependable, smooth-shifting 1x11 drivetrain paired with Race Face Aeffect cranks. Shimano Deore hydraulic disc brakes offer great modulation and control, while the Sun Ringle Duroc 40 Comp wheelset ensures you stay rubber side down when things get gnarly. A Fox Transfer dropper post and Phoenix aluminum handlebar complete the spec, giving you the ultimate all-terrain, all-conditions ride.
