Rider Feedback

When you throw a leg over this new Mach 6, you can immediately tell that it is something special. It fills a void that exists among other bikes in this category, and it does so effortlessly. On paper, it looks like just another “big” bike - but in practice, it feels like a surprisingly well-rounded machine. The effective anti-squat of the DW-Link suspension balances out the slack headtube angle and keeps the front end feeling lively. The rear end is just the right length, keeping the bike playful but also confident at high speeds. Structurally, the frame leaves no wiggle room at any interface. The chassis is rock solid, and we expect long service life, and typical Pivot reliability. This bike does everything the modern mountain biker demands, and it does not disappoint.
