So good, it feel likes you're cheating, Pivot's aluminum Mach 5.7 has the chops that make you a better rider. Whether you're scaling steep grades or pointing it down rocky chutes, you'll dig the 5.7 inches of plush, efficient dw-link/Fox rear travel that offers unreal traction and out-of-this world bump absorption. For even more trail-shredding prowess, the 5.7 is outfitted with a 142x12mm rear end, post-mount brake mounts, and dialed geometry that all combine to let you slice and dice corners and sail confidently down the rowdiest tech sections. Up front, a Fox 32 fork gives you 150mm of silky travel. Eleven-speed SRAM X1 with Race Face cranks make up this build, along with DT Swiss wheels, a carbon bar and WTB saddle.
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.
