Pivot's Mach 429 is a 29er that delivers big-wheeled speed with quick, lively handling. From the race circuit to the techy backwoods, its light aluminum frame and dw-link suspension gives you unrivaled climbing traction and bob-free acceleration. Stiffness is key, especially with 29ers, so the 429 boasts a 92mm-wide BB, stout 142x12mm rear through-axle, tapered head tube and a 1-piece carbon rocker, all of which combine to give you a bike that responds and corners like a dream. Plus, a 120mm Fox 32 Float fork, SRAM 1x11 X01, lightweight carbon bars and post, zippy DT Swiss wheels, and XT brakes let the 429 rip like a purebred racer and descend like a true trail bike.
Each dw-link frame is engineered for an optimum wheel rate and to work for a specific use with a specific spring and damper. Unlike other suspension systems, dw-link’s does not rely on pedaling platform type dampers, giving excellent bump absorption and traction. You can use this to your advantage and pump terrain in the trail to add momentum.
As your suspension reacts to obstacles, the position sensitive dw-link axle path intelligently changes to meet the demands of the trail. In the beginning of the travel, its rearward profile gives incredible small bump absorption and traction on the climbs. In the middle of the travel, the dw-link axle path works with the front suspension to provide a balanced feel for cornering confidence and jumping control. The end of the travel provides an increase in compression damping for bottomless suspension feel and big hit absorption.
dw-link uses short, stiff links, aligned in the direction of incoming forces, and a triangulated rear swingarm. This layout aligns suspension forces in the most efficient layouts possible to enable frame designs with industry leading strength-to-weight ratios and stiffness.
