Pivot Talks Fox Live and Mach 5.5

PHOENIX, AZ – Pivot Cycle’s Mach 5.5 with fully integrated Fox Live Valve redefines trail bike category boundaries.

The most sophisticated trail bike suspension ever developed, Fox Live Valve is here, and the Pivot Cycles Mach 5.5 is fully integrated and available with this game-changing suspension technology. The Mach 5.5 is already the best trail bike on the market, getting rave reviews from media and owners alike – live Valve technology takes that class-leading performance to the next level.

“We began working with Fox on this project almost three years ago when the Mach 5.5 and the Live system were in their earliest prototype stages,” says Pivot Cycles President and CEO, Chris Cocalis. “Even then in its most basic form, we realized the performance benefits and knew we had to integrate it into the Mach 5.5. The evolution since then has been nothing short of incredible.  The new FOX Live Valve system delivers even greater levels of versatility taking the Mach 5.5’s reputation as the one bike that can do it all to another level.”

Live Valve gives the Mach 5.5 an incredibly broad spectrum of suspension performance that makes it pedal and climb like our Mach 4 yet descend with the performance that rivals our longer travel Mach 6. Live Valve enhances the Mach 5.5’s already incredible capabilities by increasing pedaling efficiency seamlessly and instantly while making the suspension more supple and reactive.  Incredibly, Live Valve’s computer does everything automatically and, in less time, than a blink of the eye – 100 times faster.  With Fox Live Valve the dream of perfect suspension for every part of the ride becomes a reality.

Pricing, Specifications, and Availability: The Mach 5.5 with Fox Live Valve upgrade is available now in Pro and Team level builds ranging in price from $8,199 to $11,099 USD, in all sizes, at key Pivot dealers worldwide.
