Pivot unveils 2018 Phoenix

The Pivot Phoenix is back for 2018, featuring progressive geometry.

The Phoenix is equipped with a carbon frame featuring a massive downtube and double wishbone rear triangle to maximize stiffness and precision. The bike also features 204 millimeters of suspension, courtesy of Dave Weagle’s dw-link design.

“If you compare the Phoenix to a lot of models on the World Cup circuit, this bike is solidly on the leading edge in terms of geometry, weight and strength,” said Pivot Cycles President and CEO Chris Cocalis.

“The dw-link is key,” added Cocalis. “The anti squat and variable wheel travel path enable us to create a bike that pedals better than any other downhill bike. And since the Phoenix doesn’t squat down deeply under pedaling force, we can lower the bottom bracket height and slacken the head angle. You get the best performance in the most technical sections of the downhill without striking your pedals everywhere else on the course. The Phoenix is a World Cup missile, but it also works amazingly well at the bike park.”

For 2018, the Phoenix Carbon will also be available in two new colors—Aqua Blue with red accents or Sterling Silver with yellow highlights.

The Phoenix is available as a complete bike in few different configurations. The bike is available now, in all sizes, for key Pivot dealers worldwide.
