Pivot are kicking goals with both feet at the moment, rolling out superb bikes like it ain't no thang. We've loved this brand's work for a decade now, but as the bikes just keep getting better looking, our fondness keeps growing. The Trail 429 has just been launched, and we scored a day with it recently.

The all-new Pivot Trail 429 makes us weep little tears of joy – half a day with this bike and it’s already right up there on our most-wanted list. While we loved the previous Mach 429 Trail, it was starting to feel a little outdated in terms of geometry, and so the new Trail 429 arrives right on cue. Check out our initial impressions and first ride review below!
