Pivot Mach 6 27.5 (650b) XT/XTR Pro 2014 -
The Mach 6 isnt like anything else in Pivot's line-up. Hell, its not quite like anything they've built before! Its an all new machine designed from the ground up to optimise the 27.5 wheel platform and take the growing Enduro racing scene by storm. The Mach 6 is built with the singular purpose of going faster than anything else in the most aggressive terrain (both up and down).
The Mach 6 features the next generation of long travel dw-link design. With features like 6.1 (155mm) of travel, a low BB height (13.6), longer top tubes, lower standover, and a slack head angle (66 degrees), built around an ultra stiff and responsive carbon chassis, the Mach 6 is a bike designed to push your capabilities and reward those willing to push the limits. Pivot optimised the design with internal top tube cable routing, internal dropper post routing (dropper post not included with this model), ISCG 05 tabs, and a look that screams of speed. The Mach 6 absolutely rips for the aggressive trail rider.
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 6 carbon comes packed with top-end performance products which deliver outstanding reliability regardless of weather and off-road conditions. Firstly you have Shimano XT/XTR 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 XT/XTR shifting delivers crisp and precise gear movement and is centred around the XT 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 XT is also featured as regards the braking. Powerful stopping power is available at your fingertips with the pads clamping around a set of Stans ZTR ARCH EX 27.5 wheels (tubeless ready), which have a set of Kenda Nevegal 2.35 (front) and Honey Badger 2.2 (rear) tyres wrapped around them. 27.5" wheels (also known as 650B) provide faster rolling and better bump absorption than a 26 wheel, yet lighter, stronger and more nimble than 29s.
Then you have a pair of Fox 34 CTD FIT 150mm 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 and Phoenix are featured at the front-end of this machine. A Phoenix carbon riser bar (740mm in length) coupled with the FSA Afterburner 60mm stem provides the steering, whilst the Phoenix post and Pivot WTB Vigo Race saddle provides the seating arrangement.
The Frame Features:
The Mach 6 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.
The faster you go in technical terrain, the more confidence it provides. The Mach 6 rewards the pro enduro rider with new found levels of speed and performance and the enthusiast, a bike that will take your riding confidence to a whole new level. 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.
