Pivot Mach 429 29er SLX/XT 2014 -
With Pivots exclusive hollow box internal molding technology, and attention to detail, the Mach 429 carbon goes where you point it, accelerates with authority and gives the 29er rider a level of precision and performance never before experienced. The perfectly tuned 4 (100mm) of dw-link suspension and incredible pedaling performance just add to the fun. It accelerates with the efficient immediacy of a hardtail, only you wont feel the bumps, and descending on the Mach 429 will put most 5 travel bikes to shame.
The Mach 429 carbon delivers a perfect balance; taking all the riding efficiencies of 29 wheels and delivering the handling characteristics of a 26. It will make short work of any climb, descents a breeze, all with the comfort and efficiency of a dw-link Pivot so you can ride your best all day!
The dw-link suspension design allows Pivot to achieve the ultimate ride. The perfect balance of traction, acceleration, square edge bump performance, superior braking, and the ability to handle big hits with ease is what Pivot bikes are known for. The dw-link's patented position sensitive anti-squat eliminates pedal bob during hard pedaling efforts out of the saddle and gives the bike additional traction while climbing (seated or standing) as well as really helping propel the bike forward during sprinting and hard efforts out of corners.

The Mach 429 carbon comes packed with top-end performance products which deliver outstanding reliability regardless of weather and off-road conditions. Firstly you have a mix of Shimano XT/SLX components fitted throughout this fast carbon full sus machine. The direct mount front derailleur makes for a stiffer connection and results in faster front shifting (this design also results in weight reduction and a clean look when the bike is run with either a single front ring or in single speed mode). The mix of XT/SLX shifting delivers crisp and precise gear movement and is centred around the Shimano M625 double 38/24, 10 speed chainset. Take on the climbs, whiz down the descents and power along the trail - with this set-up you can.
Shimano Deore is featured as regards the braking. Powerful stopping power is available at your fingertips with the pads clamping around a set of Mavic Crossride 29er wheels (tubeless ready), which have a set of Kenda Slant 6 2.2 tyres wrapped around them. The 29" wheel has established itself as the most popular MTB wheel size for good reason. The benefits are simple to understand. A bigger wheel rolls over bumps better than a smaller wheel: this increases control, builds confidence, maintains momentum and makes you faster. The big wheels also provide extra traction in corners and off cambers as more rubber is in touch with the ground.
Then you have a pair of Fox 32 CTD OC 120mm travel forks which can handle the punishment as they soak up all front-end hits. You also receive a Fox Float CTD rear shock which is Pivot specific and custom tuned. This increases performance and adjustment range allowing riders to quickly and easily adjust for changing course or ride conditions.
Also, FSA are featured front-end to with their Comet riser bars (740mm in length). These inturn come fitted with a pair of Pivot's lock-on grips and also a FSA OS150 stem. The seatpost matches the bars and stem (XC255) and features a Pivot WTB Volt Race saddle perched on top.
The Frame Features:
The Mach 429 carbon features under top tube internal shift cable routing with as well as dropper seatpost routing (not supplied with this model). Also, the frame features rubberised leather chainstay, inner seatstay, and downtube protectors for a quiet ride and higher impact resistance and frame protection.
Pivot's exclusive hollow box, high-compression internal molding technology allows for greater compaction and smoother internal walls resulting in a lighter, stronger, highly optimized frame design with the best stiffness to weight ratio in the class.
For those wanting to go fast, the Mach 429 carbon offers you the ultimate trail-blazing, go fast tool in a high performance race package. Each one is fully built, tested and tuned by Wiggle's team of qualified bike mechanics to ensure you're bike arrives in perfect condition.
