Dominate on any surface – paved or otherwise – with the versatile Pivot Vault. When your ride includes every possibility, the Vault’s thru-axle disc brake design combines with next generation cross/gravel geometry for an unmatched multi-surface riding experience.
We began by developing the ultimate next-generation cyclocross machine, with a lower bottom bracket height, shorter chainstays and increased tire clearance. The finished result is a bike that rivals the best of the best on pavement but with unmatched versatility and a high-performance fun factor that puts other bikes to shame when conditions get rough.
The Pivot Vault features leading-edge materials and our proprietary hollow-core, internal-molding process. This coveted production technology enables us to create an ultra-lightweight frame with the most efficient power transfer. Size specific carbon layups mean that every rider has the same high quality experience. Our precision ride tuning combined with the latest through-axle technology and direct mount disc brake design delivers handling precision and braking performance at a whole new level. The ability to modulate your speed, to corner at exactly the right velocity, and to go exactly where you point the bike with supreme confidence allows the speed to come easily and the grins to be permanent.
The New Vault features 140-160mm rotor compatibility and new Shimano direct brake mount standard for disc brake on the rear and post mount with 160mm-180mm rotor compatibility up front. When combined with 12x142mm rear spacing and thru axles this is the ultimate package for braking responsiveness and steering in a high-performance, mixed-surface racing bike.
Custom Designed Carbon Fork
The Vault frameset utilizes a Pivot designed, full carbon, taper-steerer fork with an oversized crown for the best in steering precision, tire clearance and braking power. Fork dropouts have been upgraded to 15mm thru axle compatible (with the lever on the non-brake side) for even more strength and handling accuracy.
Internal Cable Routing and Electronic Compatibility
The Vault features beautifully integrated internal shifter routing that easily adapts to both new electronic and traditional mechanical shifting systems. Large, easy to access ports are mechanic friendly.
BB386EVO Bottom Bracket
“As stiffness is directly tied to cross-sectional size it’s no surprise that… BB386 EVO has the most to offer, with both the added shell width and diameter that many frame-makers yearn for.”
The Pivot Vault incorporates a BB386EVO bottom bracket system. This maximum-size, maximum-stiffness design standard was created by Pivot’s own Chris Cocalis and is featured in hundreds of bicycles and cranksets throughout the industry. Advantages include increased torsional rigidity, higher frame strength and better power transfer via an oversized 30mm diameter spindle and bigger bottom bracket shell cross section. This large surface area also contributes to ideal chainstay/bottom bracket integration and tire clearance – ideal for foul weather applications.
Sizing and Build Kit Details
The Pivot Vault complete bike features an ideal mixed-surface build with Shimano Ultegra build and Stan’s Rail wheels. The very wide rims handle high pressures and wider tires with aplomb mean you can tackle any surface with confidence. The 3T cockpit components feature the ultimate in contemporary Italian design complementing the beauty of the Vault frame while TRP brakes and all-new FSA Gossamer crankset let you take advantage of every watt you put into the pedals. The Pivot Vault is also available as a frameset, enabling you to build a personalized spec from the ground up. Both complete bikes and framesets are available in 4 sizes from XS-L (50, 54, 56, 58cm), to fit riders from 5’3” to 6’3”.
