From Trail To Park

The new Switchblade is light enough to pedal all day, but stout enough to run a Fox 38 without any worries. You can spin this rig up into the jagged high places, and it is burley enough, composed enough, planted enough and smooth enough to smask every line all the way back down, laughing the whole way.

- Ultra-Light Hollow Core Carbon Frame.
- Size Specific Chainstays.
- Equipped with a 44mm offset 160mm-travel Fox 36 Grip2.
- Flip Chip for on-trail geometry customization.
- Featuring the easy to find UDH rear derailleur hanger for peace of mind when traveling.

- Hassle free full internal routing with Pivot cable port system.
- Compatible with both 29, 27.5+” and 27.5” rear/29” front (mullet) wheel sizes without compromise thanks to the Flip chip’s adjustable geometry feature.
- 142mm of supple-yet-efficient dw-link™ suspension travel featuring a vertically mounted trunnion metric air shock.

- Large Water Bottle Clearance on all sizes.
- Pivot Tool Dock system compatible with mounts under the top tube and integrated into the underside of the frame.

To ensure the best sizing, we recommend that you visit your local Pivot dealer to get a professional fit. Here's a rough guideline:

X-Small: 4'11" – 5'4" | 1,50 – 1,63 m
Small: 5'4" – 5’9” | 1,63 – 1,75 m
Medium: 5'8" – 5'11” | 1,73 – 1,80 m
Large: 5'10" – 6’2” | 1,78 – 1,88 m
X-Large: 6'2" + | 1,88 m +

We suggest that you pick your Switchblade size based on your riding style. The Switchblade features progressive long reach geometry with both short seat tube and head tube measurements per size – this geometry means that most riders can go up or down a size and should base their choice on riding-style, reach and stem length preferences.
