Pivot Cycles (United States) - Press Release: Two new models - Lighter, and more capable than ever, the new Shuttle sets the bar for eMTB performance and fun.
Pivot Cycles introduces the new Shuttle – an updated superlight and ultra-capable full carbon frame, new spec, and two models with a new lower price option makes it the most advanced eMTB we’ve ever developed. New 29” wheels and a 160mm travel Fox 36 fork with 44mm offset takes the Shuttle’s legendary enduro performance to a new level. Updated spec makes the Shuttle one of the lightest eMTBs on the Market. The Team build comes in at just 44.75 pounds (20.29 KG) and the Race level is only 1.5 pounds (.68 KG) heavier.
Two new models built with the exact same full carbon Shuttle frame offer class leading eMTB performance. The Race XT level Shuttle features Shimano’s STEPS E7000 drive unit, an XT drivetrain and Performance level Fox suspension. Our Team XTR version has Shimano’s STEPS E-8000 drive unit, the new 12-speed XTR drivetrain and Factory level Fox suspension with Kashima coatings.
“Since day one, riders have been loving the Shuttle but asking for a more affordable version,” says Pivot Cycles President and CEO, Chris Cocalis. “I am pleased that this day is finally here, and we did it while significantly improving the bike at the same time. And the Team model takes that performance up yet another notch”
The same fork specs that make our enduro race models shred so hard gives the Shuttle next level feel and capability on the trail. This 44mm offset, 160mm travel Fox 36 fork adds high-speed stability, cornering ability, and overall performance on the most technical terrain. Experience nothing but fade-free performance and control on the longest, roughest descents thanks to the custom tuned Fox Float DPX2 shock’s added oil capacity and twin tube internal architecture. Add in the characteristics of Dave Weagle’s dw-link suspension, and you get best in class pedaling performance and traction – important traits when boosting up technical trail features.
