Purpose-built to meet the demands of enduro and aggressive trail riding, Pivot’s Switchblade is a versatile ripper with a huge advantage no matter where you shred. Combining modern geometry tweaks with a stiff and lightweight carbon frame gives you both unmatched high-speed stability through chunky terrain and effortless split-second manuals over seemingly impossible obstacles. Adding dw-link’s anti-squat and variable wheel travel path means that the Switchblade achieves the best performance in high speed and technical sections while also maintaining precise handling and a poppy ride. Best of all, though, is the Switchblade's ability to accept wheel size changes at the flick of a quick release. Drop the 27.5+ for a set of 29ers and let the miles melt away. Adding to the list of pros is the Pivot Cable Port system which routes shifter, brake, and dropper cables internally for an uber-clean aesthetic. This Team XTR Di2 1x build goes all in on performance with Shimano's electronic XTR Di2 drivetrain paired with Race Face Next SL cranks. XTR hydraulic disc brakes follow suit with amazing power at race weight, while the Reynolds carbon wheel/i9 hub combo delivers strength and acceleration in spades. A Fox Transfer dropper post and Phoenix carbon handlebar complete the stellar spec, giving you the ultimate all-terrain, all-conditions ride.
Electronic drivetrain systems deliver excellent shifting, easy set up, and solid battery life. Here are some benefits of electronic shifting that you don't want to miss.
Electronic shifting systems use powerful servo motors to rapidly shift the chain. Because microprocessors and sensors constantly monitor every aspect of the system, they shift with surgical precision and without chain rub.
Many major systems have customizable shifting. Some have the ability to add remote shifters for common riding positions, and some even allow you to change the functions of the shifting buttons.
Electronic groupsets are responsive and consistent. There are no cables to stretch and wear out, so you get a flawless shift every time. The added bonus is you'll never have to replace a derailleur cable ever again.
