It’s already taken dual slalom podium finishes and won best trick competitions across the globe. They’ve combined 4” of dw-link tuned suspension, Pivot proven frame stiffness and the perfect slalom geometry to create the M4X, A machine of pure gravity delight. The M4X is perfect for dirt jumps, slalom, pump track and technical jump filled trails. If you like having fun on a bike what’s not to like about the M4X.

Dw-link® Suspension: One of the primary benefits of the dw-link® suspension design is position-sensitive anti-squat. Put simply, the dw-link® is the first and only suspension design that takes into account the rider’s weight and position on the bike (i.e. the rider’s centre of mass). When you stand up to sprint or shift your weight back to climb, your weight along with the force on the pedals is the dominant force on the suspension. This bob or “squat” caused by the rider’s mass shift is a good part of the reason why ProPedal, SPV, Brain, lockouts, and a host of various other “platform damping” solutions exist: to resist suspension bob and squat. With the dw-link®’s anti-squat design, the dual suspension links are positioned in such a way that your weight shifts do not result in unwanted suspension movement or “squat” under power. This allows for tuning of the rear shock with lighter valving, making the bike free to absorb bumps and follow the terrain better.
