Introducing the Pivot Firebird 27.5. Whether you’re sending it in Whistler, gunning for the overall in Downieville or pinning 30-minute descents on a 6-hour epic through the Rockies, the Firebird has your back. By many accounts, it’s the ultimate long-travel trail bike.
The ‘Bird platform has always been revered for its unique combination of climbing traction, acceleration, and descending capabilities; a rare and difficult-to-attain mix of opposing traits. This excellent starting point made it the ideal proving grounds for a 27.5 chassis.
To make the best even better we’ve slackened the head angle, maintained a low BB height and added the amazing Fox Racing Shox 34, a 160mm travel 27.5-specific fork that complements best-in-class handling.
Does your riding style lean towards bruising hucker? Jedi-style finesse? Is “flow” a daily habit and not just an industry buzzword and do you routinely defy the laws of the physical universe we all occupy? Then get this: the 27.5 Firebird sets the bar high. Very high. Expect a whole new level of performance…from an already award winning ride.
