Fresh Bikes: Pivot Unveil a Lighter Di2 Compatible Mach 429 SL

Words by Pivot Cycles | Images by Pivot Cycles

Racing is a new game and the half pound lighter Pivot Mach 429 SL Carbon is the bike riders need when the course tests both engine size and handling skills.

Pivot has dropped over 226g via the use of leading-edge carbon fiber and their proprietary hollow-core, internal-molding process with optimized composite materials and lay-up structure – making this the lightest, stiffest 29er with the best power transfer available.

The Pivot Mach 429SL Carbon is only the second fully Di2 integrated mountain bike (the first is Pivot’s Mach 4 Carbon). Featuring our innovative Pivot Cable Port System, internal routing is easy to install and maintain with large, easy to access ports and interchangeable covers for the cleanest installation of wires, batteries and cables.
