Pivot Trail 429


The newly redesigned Trail 429 from Pivot Cycles is everything we expected and more. Still fitting itself between the Mach 4 SL and the Switchblade, the Trail 429 acquires the now standard Progressive Trail Geometry, but with added XC race pedaling efficiency. The new Trail still comes with 130mm up front and 120mm in the back- and now includes an Enduro build option that sees a Fox 36 140mm up front. There is a flip-chip for geometry adjustment that sees a 0.5° more slack headtube and seat tube angle in the Lower BB setting. We view this bike as a lighter, shorter travel Switchblade with a similar geometry for added downhill confidence and capability.
