Pivot Cycles introduces the Phoenix Component System

Arizona-based Pivot Cycles has released information about the new Phoenix Component System.

The new range of products includes handlebars, seatposts and saddles that the brand says improve rider precision, comfort and control whilst riding.

The oversized 35mm stem-to-handlebar clamp interface plus the ultra-stiff center section of the handlebar eliminate front-end flex whilst carbon layup of the rest of the bar is optimised for vibration reduction.

Another key element of the system is the Phoenix WTB PadLoc grip system, which increases the rider’s comfort on the bike by isolating the part of the hand that takes the majority of the strain from descents via a vibration-reducing pad at the outside of the grip. 

The engineered carbon layers of the Phoenix Team seatpost allow for two times the flex in the fore-aft axis than is found in traditional designs. The result of this is reduced fatigue and greater comfort in the saddle on long rides.

“These components work as a system to maximise steering accuracy whilst providing just the right amount of shock absorption and vibration damping to help eliminate rider fatigue, especially on long descents and in endurance situations,” said Pivot President Chris Cocalis.

He added: “To make sure that every size rider benefits from this system, we offer a wide range of bar width and stem length options.”
