PRESS RELEASE

Bike park ripper? Backcountry fun hog? Enduro all-star? Yes. Yes. And yes. Dressed to kill and ready to party, the new Mach 6 is a shot of backcountry adrenaline, a bike park dream ride and a lively handling enduro weapon, all rolled into a single high-performance package.

 

Pivot is pulling back the curtains today on the freshly redesigned Mach 6. Right out of the gate, you’ll notice it has 27.5-inch wheels. Why? Because 27.5-inch wheels, when incorporated into a bicycle designed to capitalize on their potential, are more fun. The Mach 6 is a serious enduro race weapon and a totally capable backcountry tool, but above all else, it’s a whole lotta fun. We optimized our renowned Hollow Core carbon frame construction to provide unparalleled strength with just the right amount of ride stiffness, refined the geometry to deliver a playful yet planted ride, and tweaked the kinematics of our dw-link suspension to make the most of the wheel size while yielding 158mm of the plushest, most capable travel you’ll find anywhere.

Says Pivot Founder Chris Cocalis, “Everyone knows that 27.5-inch wheels are more fun, and the new Mach 6 pegs the fun meter at a new level. We don’t just spend our days slaving away designing bikes so our World Cup riders can set their fastest time (although we do a lot of that). More often than not, we’re looking for bikes to make us feel like superheroes and put the biggest smile on our faces. The Mach 6 does that and then some, making it my new favorite bike. The Mach 6 is fundamentally designed to be super fun and poppy, giving everyone the magic carpet ride with maximum performance and maximum fun.”

Every Mach 6 build option is biased toward getting loose and going hard, but also making sure that your bike stays in one piece while you test your limits. Our Race level builds pair supremely durable Marzocchi Bomber coil shocks with Bomber Z1 air forks. Pro and Team builds feature FOX DHX2 coil shocks and FOX 38 GRIP2 forks; ideal setups for attacking technical terrain and banging out big days at the park. And for riders seeking to balance out the adrenaline surge with equal amounts of sweat equity, we offer FOX Live Valve suspension on our lightweight Air builds for unmatched climbing performance and all-conditions trail composure.

Internally routed cables are secured at each end by Pivot's Cable Port System.

The new Mach 6 uses a Phoenix DH inspired longer dw-link to maximize the rearward wheel-path for erasing square edge bumps and maximizing control. Pivot gave the Mach 6 158mm rear suspension travel and its revised, vertically mounted trunnion shock. Up front is 160mm travel for unrivaled suspension performance.

Dig into details with Pivot's tech talk.

Say hello to aggressive geometry for the ultimate in all-mountain, enduro, bike park and extreme trail performance.

I have a question about the tool in the image. It says it's a Topeak, but there isn't "sealed box" Topeak on the Topeak site. Any info on what's "in the box" and whether or not Topeak sells it to mount to water bottle posts?

Is there any plan for a group test on "Fun" bikes? The ones that the manufacturers claim are built for fun. eg. The Nukeproof Reactor, Commencal meta and this bike or maybe I'm forgetting other bikes. My ideal fun bike would be a light enough bike for jump and jibs but capable enough to be a little stupid on fast rough downs without it breaking to pieces after 1 season.

Backwards on the XT build: shifter should be XT and derailleur should be SLX if there can only be one XT part of the two
