Pivot Switchblade

Pivot Switchblade Top Tier Build

Pivot offers two top-of-the-line builds in their Team category, including an XTR mechanical build for the rider seeking the lightest Switchblade at 29 lbs. It’s rare to see a bike with this amount of travel under 30 pounds. The XX1 AXS Team build is available with SRAM’s top-level electronic shifting. The XX1 AXS Team build also comes with an AXS Reverb. Both Team builds are available with FOX Live Valve for an added $2,000. DT Swiss XMC Carbon wheels come stock on the top tier builds in the Team category.

Pivot Switchblade Options

With three Build levels for your Pivot Switchblade, you can toggle between options to land on your dream setup. Check out the Ride Build levels, offering reliable components in a no-nonsense package. Choose between Shimano SLX/XT or SRAM GX/X01 and pair with a FOX Performance Float X suspension. Ride Builds come with DT Swiss Alloy wheelsets for reliable all-mountain performance.

For the past seven years, Pivot has been redefining what it means to be forward-thinking. The Pivot Switchblade changes the game. With the most advanced versatility, you can adjust the geometry with a simple “flip” to accommodate 29” wheels, 27.5” wheels or a reverse mullet.

Whether you're heading into the high alpine for a backcountry route or flowing through the bike park, the Switchblade boosts your skills and rivals any trail. The head tube angle is steeper than other bikes on the market, but it provides the perfect blend between XC and All Mountain.

Thanks to Pivot’s legendary DW link suspension, designed by Dave Weagle, the bike climbs like a light travel trail bike and descends like an enduro bike. This is your entire quiver in a single bike.
