It's here. And ready to be ridden hard, and put away wet.

Pivot Mach 429 Trail


The first in the country.

We received word that the 429 Trail was released... And expected ETA was mid-July. Three days later, a strange box arrived at the shop with the legendary Phoenix logo all over the box. We looked at each other confused, we hadn't ordered anything recently from Pivot. Could this... no, could it be?

It was. The first Mach 429 Trail to land in the country. Not just that, but with their stunning Shimano XTR 1x11 build, DT Swiss Carbon wheels, and the first fully Boost frame and fork to come through the shop.
