Brand New from Pivot: The Mach 5.5 Carbon
Fresh off their success with the Mach 5.7 Carbon, Pivot have re-engineered the design to create a bleeding-edge trail bike. Check out all the details direct from Pivot, including pricing and availability after the break.
The New Mach 5.5 Carbon builds on the legacy of our renowned Mach 5.7 Carbon as the quintessential trail bike. With 140mm of dw-link™ rear travel, it sticks to and claws up just about anything, with unparalleled pedaling efficiency. On descents, the Mach 5.5 Carbon’s incredible square edge bump performance and 160mm travel Fox 36 fork enables you to conquer terrain that makes other bikes cower. It’s a bike that inspires you to climb while looking forward to the descents and that begs you to push your limits while putting a smile on your face.
“The original Mach 5.7 Carbon was the most popular, best loved bike we’ve ever produced. We wanted to update the design, and knew that it had to be absolutely perfect for all the riders out there waiting for the next generation,” said Pivot Cycles President and CEO, Chris Cocalis. “The Mach 5.5 Carbon embodies everything that made the original rise above the competition, with key updates to make it a true next-generation trail bike – it features our trail-adapted long and low geometry, an evolved mid-travel linkage for incredible small bump compliance, an all-new carbon layup with lighter weight, higher modulus materials, and clearance for up to 2.6” wide tires.”
The Mach 5.5 Carbon is offered in five sizes to fit riders from 4’11” to 6’7”. Every size option, including size XS, fits a full size water bottle inside the front triangle. It is available as a complete bike, with builds weighing under 27lbs (12.2kg), complete with dropper, and with frame weights as low as 5.2lbs (2.35kg).
Pricing, Specifications, and Availability: The Mach 5.5 Carbon complete bike is available immediately in two color options (black or red), and in nine different Shimano or SRAM configurations ranging from $4,899 to $10,199 USD. It is also available as a frameset for $3,099.
