The greatest trail bikes do everything well, no matter what or where you ride, and Pivot’s new Mach 429 Trail raises the bar for amazing bikes even higher. Our goal when designing the Mach 429 Trail was to create a new category of trail bike – one that takes advantage of the best features of 29 and yet maintains the performance characteristics that make you forget about wheelsize and, instead, translate to the “best-ride-ever,” every time you ride.

We produced many iterations of this new design, tweaking angles and measurements with each generation of prototype and ride testing every version until we created the perfect formula. The result? A bike with the incredible pedaling efficiency and small bump compliance of the dw-link™ design, a slack front end and a short back end that is fast, flickable, and energy efficient.

To complement this new 29er formula, you’ll find Boost™ 148 spacing, our own hollow core, internal, high compression carbon molding and the obsessive detailing you expect from Pivot. Effortless trail bike handling, incredible power transfer and precise cornering are all yours, without compromise, in the perfectly balanced chassis of the Mach 429 Trail. It is the perfect choice for your next ride.

PIVOT’S NEW MID-TRAVEL TRAIL LINKAGE DESIGN

The 429 Trail marks the introduction of Pivot’s new mid-travel trail linkage design, specifically for trail bikes. With major influences from the clevis design of the Phoenix DH Carbon and Mach 6 Carbon, the 429 Trail utilizes an entirely new upper linkage to provide the same ultra-precise control and bottomless feel of our longer travel dw-link™ designs in a more compact, lighter package for trail applications.

When we pair the new upper linkage design with the same lower linkage design that we utilize on the Mach 6 Carbon, the result is a bike that you can take anywhere and over anything – an incredibly versatile 29er with seemingly endless suspension and noticeably increased traction. The Mach 429 Trail’s dw-link™ suspension delivers unmatched handling characteristics combined with pedaling efficiency and climbing capability for riders who demand the best performance in both XC and technical terrain.

The 429 Trail is spec’d with the new Fox Float DPS (Dual Piston System) shock custom tuned specifically for 429 Trail. DPS stands for Dual Piston System – the shock features two separate sets of valving, similar to what you would find in Fox’s external reservoir Float X design but in a much lighter package. The Float DPS shock features new settings and a design that allows for an incredibly plush feel with a wide range of damping control while also offering an extremely positive “firm” position, for those long fire-road climbs. These features are direct complements to Pivot’s mid-travel suspension tuning and when combined with the dw-link’s® patented position-sensitive anti-squat, gives riders even better traction on steep climbs and over rough trail, making the Mach 429 Trail an up-trail-conquering, climbing machine with a nearly bottomless feel in even the most aggressive terrain.

To match the never ending feel of the Mach 429 Trail’s rear suspension, we’ve paired it with the new 130mm Fox 34 for a perfectly balanced ride both on the ups and downs. This fork sets the new bar for trail specific suspension performance.

BOOST

To complement these trail-proven angles, you’ll find new Boost™ 148 spacing in the rear and 110mm front hub spacing. The extra width between dropouts with the Boost™ system lends itself perfectly to Pivot’s drive to produce the stiffest frames with the best energy transfer available. The extra room between hub flanges gives that 29er wheel a ride feel that is as precise as any wheelsize with the added advantage of big-wheel rollover capability. In addition to enhanced frame and wheel stiffness, the Boost™ system also enables us to add more tire clearance, allowing for a wider range of condition specific tire choices.

CARBON FRAME DESIGN

When creating the Mach 429 Trail, our engineers worked to find the perfect combination of purposeful, clean, composite design for strength, large cross sections for stiffness, and the right combination of composite materials to produce a high value frame worthy of the name Pivot. With our hollow-core, internal-molding process to bring this vision to reality, riders can now put the Mach 429 Trail at the top of the list when it comes to choosing a one-bike quiver.

Additionally, we’ve designed this full carbon frame with value in mind – building on our years of composite layup and construction experience – we’ve maintained the highest levels of stiffness and strength to weight, while making focused changes to keep the costs down and the technical advantages high, such as strategic, easy-to-service external routing combined with key features of the Pivot Cable Port System – including ports for use with an internal dropper post and clean cable/housing routing through the chainstays.

THE DETAILS MAKE THE BIKE

Debuting on the Mach 429 Trail is a new ultra-clean, removable front derailleur mount. For those that want to run two chainrings, this mount offers the best shifting performance you can get, utilizing Shimano’s new side-swing front derailleur system.

For those who love the simple functionality of 1x systems, remove the front derailleur mount for an incredibly sleek, clean installation with almost no evidence of the un-needed hardware.

Our mountain bikes feature the PF92 bottom bracket.Collaboratively developed by our engineers and Shimano, this allows for wider pivots and better bearing support, both of which contribute to increased frame stiffness and strength as well as the best bearing longevity.

Other essential details include post mount disc brake mounts for easy set up and weight savings, internal stealth dropper compatibility and Enduro Max cartridge bearings throughout.There are mounts for 2 waterbottles on every frame and the Mach 429 Trail is available in 4 sizes – S, M, L, XL – and in two great colors.

BUILD KITS AND ASSEMBLY

The Mach 429 Trail is available with a wide range of complete builds – everything from SLX up to XTR with both SRAM and Shimano options. We’ve carefully selected every part and only spec components we would ride ourselves.

We take quality and workmanship seriously at Pivot, and know that the details are what make a great rider experience.Every Pivot Cycles frame undergoes a 28 step assembly and quality control check to ensure that you will be just as excited as we are every time you ride the Mach 429 Trail.
