PIVOT CYCLES Mach 6 Carbon V3 Blue 2018
|Description||Pivotâs ultimate enduro/aggressive trail bike gets long and low.
Pivotâs renowned Mach 6 Carbon is longer, lower and sets a new benchmark for enduro / aggressive trail bikes.
The new design benefits directly from Pivotâs extensive gravity design experience ??" the perfect combination of progressive geometry and uncompromising pedaling capability ??" making it the right choice for dropping into black-diamond terrain and hitting technical features at race pace. From peak to podium, the Mach 6 Carbon is enduro performance, redefined.
New Enduro / Aggressive Trail Geometry
With its new, slacker, 65.75 degree head angle, steep 74 degree seat angle, and Pivotâs long travel, downhill-influenced linkage, the 155mm travel Mach 6 Carbon is specifically designed for enduro racers who are pushing their limits or for riders looking for every advantage in technical terrain. Descending, riders are âinâ the cockpit rather than above, experiencing stability and control at high speeds, incredible rollover capability on technical trail features, and light, flickable, handling that attests to the influence of riders like Rupert Chapman and the ever stylish Bernard Kerr.
You have to get up to get down, and the new steeper seat angles combined with the roomier cockpit on the Mach 6 Carbon keep the front wheel on the ground and the traction engaged, enabling riders to motor over the toughest climbing obstacles with surprising ease, making transfers easy and giving Pivot athletes a huge advantage over tricky uphill features.
Smaller riders also benefit from customized geometry in every frame size.
While sizes Medium, Large and X-Large see significant increases in reach measurements, sizes Small and X-Small are more compact, in keeping with our rider-size-specific design philosophy, while still offering the climbing advantages of the steeper seat angle, and a nimble, capable handling on descents.
Carbon Frame and Linkage Design
With our exclusive hollow core internal molding process and the right combination of carbon materials and design features, weâve created the Mach 6 Carbon to be an incredibly durable and light chassis, with levels of stiffness and strength that are comparable to our downhill designs.
Large tube cross sections, double wishbone rear triangle, ultra-stiff clevis and linkage, and large, suspension specific, EnduroMax bearings all contribute to class leading power transfer and the point and shoot ride quality essential in a top flight enduro race bike.
DW-LinkÂ® And Fox Suspension
The Mach 6 Carbon features acclaimed dw-linkÂ® suspension, dialed for long travel applications.
The dw-linkÂ®âs famed anti-squat delivers non-stop traction, while the variable wheel travel path provides unmatched square-edge bump absorption and control on technical descents.
The responsiveness and bottomless feel of the Mach 6 is matched only by the exceptionally efficient climbing capability for faster, easier transfers ??" getting you to the next descent before everyone else.
The Mach 6 Carbon is specâd with the New FOX Factory Kashima Float DPX2 shock with the EVOL air sleeve, tuned specifically for enduro and trail applications.
The new Float DPX2 features X2 oil flow architecture in a lighter weight, better pedaling package for optimized performance in enduro / aggressive trail applications as well as offering an incredibly wide range of individual tunability.
The EVOL air sleeve on the Mach 6âs DPX2 significantly reduces the force required to initiate travel, for the ultimate in small bump compliance and better bottom-out resistance. When combined with the ultra-low friction Kashima coating, this design offers an incredibly plush feel with a wide range of damping adjustments.
The Float DPX2 also offers three on-the-fly lever adjustments using the new Open, Medium and Firm options with an additional adjustment for tuning low speed compression on the open setting, to suit a wide range of rider weights and preferences.
While dw-linkÂ® is inherently efficient in every setting, the firm option is great for long fire road climbs or between stage transfers. These shock features are direct complements to dw-linkÂ® suspension tuning and patented position-sensitive anti-squat, giving riders even better traction on steep climbs and over rough trail.
To match Mach 6 Carbonâs rear suspension, weâve paired it with the newest 160mm FOX 36 fork now featuring an EVOL air spring and updated upper tubes for unparalleled small bump sensitivity ??" Itâs the perfect fork to match any trail riderâs need for high-performance, balanced handling on every part of the trail.
ALL THE RIGHT DETAILS
The Mach 6 Carbon is available in five sizes to fit riders from 4â11â to 6â3â+ from Extra Small (XS) to Extra Large (XL) options.
Getting the gearing setup that works best for you is easy with the Mach 6 Carbon. It is both 1x and 2x compatible, and offers full Di2 electronic integration and easy, clean internal routing of shifters, brakes and droppers via the Pivot Cable Port system.
Other essential details include rubberized leather downtube and swingarm frame protection, 180mm rear post mount disc brake, and Enduro Max cartridge bearings throughout.
WOMEN & PIVOT:
At Pivot, we believe the bike should fit the rider, not the other way around. Our approach to rider-size-specific geometry relies on a balanced fit and adjusted geometry to maintain correct wheelbase length and handling to properly accommodate the proportions of every size ride, including smaller athletes. Our S and XS sizes are built with shorter head tubes to create more stand-over height, enabling you to ride in a centered, athletic position with tons of clearance over the top tube ??" essential to attacking descents and cornering with confidence and speed.
We create the same handling experience across the range by engineering specifically each frame size. Size-specific carbon molds enable us to use smaller diameters and unique carbon layups for lighter frames in the small sizes while maintaining the same high strength in a more compact design. Additionally, for riders on our extra small bikes, Pivotâs Float DPX2 tune offers an incredibly wide range of shock tuning which enables us to set up the Mach 6 Carbon for a diverse range of rider weights and abilities.
Pivot complete bikes are also designed to intelligently address real-world rider differences, with the option to choose womenâs specific saddle on any size and shorter cranks on our S and XS sizes.
