New Pivot Firebird Hits the Track

2017 Pivot Firebird

The new Pivot Firebird features some of the longest reach measurements in the sport, combined with super-short 16.95” chainstays and Boost spacing, and fits 27.5” wheels with tires up to 2.5” wide. 

The Firebird is the no-compromise, Holy Grail of long travel mountain bikes – both an enduro bike that devours park runs and a technical climber that relishes huge lines and blazing descents. Building on its reputation as the bike for all-day missions on black diamond terrain, the Firebird now features Phoenix DH-inspired long reach measurements combined with a 65-degree head angle to deliver unmatched stability and handling.

“The Firebird is already known as long travel bike that can take huge hits and is also an incredibly capable technical climber,” said Pivot Cycles President and CEO, Chris Cocalis. “This new bike takes that reputation for enduro-versatility and ups the ante by incorporating our long and low geometry, and super short chainstays. This geometry really puts the rider “in” the bike, and adds up to an incredibly stable ride at high speeds and in super steep technical challenges.”

The Firebird, with 170mm of dw-link™ suspension, is the best choice for riders seeking a no-compromises bike for all-day missions on black-diamond terrain. The new carbon frame design enabled Pivot’s engineering team to drop weight (it is easy to build a complete Firebird under 28 pounds), increase strength and stiffness, and incorporate Pivot’s signature design features – the same double wishbone rear triangle and linkage design found on the Phoenix DH, Boost spacing, the Pivot Cable Port System for super clean internal cable routing and fully Di2 integration and ultra-quiet, low durometer rubberized frame protection.

Pricing, Specifications, and Availability: The Firebird is available as a complete bike in 9 different configurations ranging from $4,999 to $9,899 USD. The Firebird is available immediately, in all sizes, at key Pivot Dealers worldwide.
