With the perfect combination of incredible XC-racing efficiency and trail-worthy technical prowess, Pivot's award-winning Mach 429SL dominates any trail. Using a blend of high-end carbon tech, and Pivot's well-refined manufacturing mastery, they managed to create a bike that defies expectations. The dw-link gives you World Cup-level efficiency, instant acceleration, and unparalleled climbing traction. Then on the downs, the 100mm suspension performs like a longer travel bike, for an incredibly capable ride in technical terrain for Strava record-defying descents. Of course, all the Pivot frame details are there: a 142 x 12mm rear end, full internal cable routing—including stealth dropper routing—as well as rubberized frame armor, Enduro Max bearings on all pivots, and a 92mm BB. Plus, SRAM's XX1 1 x 11-speed drivetrain, Guide brakes, a 120mm-travel Fox 32 Float fork and Float CTD shock, DT Swiss wheels, and a carbon bar and post complete this perfect XC machine.

DW Link.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.
