First Ride Pivot Firebird 29 – Mountain Bike Action Magazine

You may remember the Firebird from Pivot’s line up and while the Firebird 29’s name suggests that the new bike simply received larger wheels, that couldn’t be further from the truth. The Firebird 29 is a brand new machine from the ground up. Featuring a full carbon frame, 162mm of dw-link suspension and a Super Boost Plus rear end, the Firebird 29 is a bike that slays descents and powers up climbs. Its designed to be a game changer, rewriting what was once thought possible of a long-travel 29er. The Firebird’s aggressive geometry, long travel suspension and burly components will appeal to the heavy hitter, while its climbing prowess will encourage riders to go lap after lap like an energizer bunny.
