Pivot unveils new Mach Carbon builds

The New Mach 5.5 Carbon builds on the legacy of the Mach 5.7 Carbon as the brand’s key trail bike.

“The original Mach 5.7 Carbon was the most popular, best loved bike we’ve ever produced. We wanted to update the design, and knew that it had to be absolutely perfect for all the riders out there waiting for the next generation,” said Pivot Cycles president and CEO Chris Cocalis.

“The Mach 5.5 Carbon embodies everything that made the original rise above the competition, with key updates to make it a true next-generation trail bike; it features our trail-adapted long and low geometry, an evolved mid-travel linkage for incredible small bump compliance, an all-new carbon layup with lighter weight, higher modulus materials and clearance for up to 2.6” wide tires.”

The Mach 5.5 Carbon is offered in five sizes to fit riders from 4’11” to 6’7”. Every size option, including size XS, fits a full size water bottle inside the front triangle. It is available as a complete bike, with builds weighing under 12.2kg, complete with dropper and with frame weights as low as 5.2lbs 2.35kg. The bike features 140mm of dw-link rear travel and a 160mm travel Fox 36 fork.
