From race day to cross-country rides, we love the Pivot Mach 4 SL Pro XT/XTR 100 Carbon Wheel Mountain Bike for its need for speed and efficient pedaling platform. At the heart of this race-day rig, Pivot’s DW-Link suspension platform provides an ultra-smooth and efficient ride. Combining efficient anti-squat characteristics that keep us from bobbing around on the climbs, with a planted feel on the descents, the DW-Link suspension platform boosts confidence and makes us feel like we can take on anything. Going hand-in-hand with the suspension platform, two of the standout components of this bike are the Fox Factory Step-Cast 32 100mm fork and the Fox Factory DPS shock, making for an adjustable, reliable, and smooth ride. This bike features Shimano’s XT/XTR hybrid build with a mixed drivetrain, sporting a 10-51t cassette and Shimano’s XTR derailleur. Reynolds Blacklabel XC carbon wheels take this build to the moon and are stiff, super-lightweight, and include Industry Nine’s premium Hydra hub. Fast-rolling Maxxis Rekon Race tires are a perfect cross-country race tire due to their low weight and rolling resistance. Every Mach 4 comes equipped with a downtube protector, chainstay protector, and a tool dock for protection and tool carry when out on the trails. To truly send this build into the premium category, Pivot equipped this ride with a Fox Factory Transfer dropper post, making for smooth transitions of saddle height and adding more Kashima coat for the style points. *Due to a high demand in the global supply chain and bike industry since the start of the pandemic, material weight and exact components are subject to change. We are working diligently to keep tech specs updated, and any adjustments will be of equal or better spec level.
