Kyle Strait’s 2011 Pivot Cycles Phoenix Downhill Bike at Sea Otter Classic!

For 2011, Pivot has released their new downhill bike that they’ve been showing off at Interbike/Eurobike. They’ve also managed to get some good testing done at many World Cup venues as well as the Red Bull Rampage. Check out the video inside as well as more details on their new downhill bike.


Piloted by Kyle Strait and tested by other pro athletes like Mitch Delfs last year, they’ve learned and incorporated a variety of features into their downhill bike

Rear dropouts are replaceable and optional ones are also available to change the geometry on the bike to tweak the geometry of the bike.

The dw-link equipped bike is designed to be efficient at pedaling as well as bump absorption. 83mm bb shell, 150mm rear spacing, ISCG-05 chain guide mounts, and a 1.5″ head tube.
The bike has some robust frame construction in key areas to provide a strength, stiffness, and long life for owners without being too heavy.

Access to lower shock dials can be done through the frame
The frameset comes with the Cane Creek AngleSet so if you want to slack the bike out more (or steepen it) you are able to do so.
