Evolution of a Classic This latest iteration of the Trail 429 is evidence of our constant quest for peak performance. We’ve broadened its capabilities without sacrificing its legendary sharpness: slackening the head angle just enough, increasing the reach, and introducing a flip-chip to allow fine-tuning of the geometry toward either the rowdy or racy ends of the spectrum. All-Star Suspension Is it possible for a bike to be both razor-sharp and butter-smooth? Yes. The Trail 429 is proof. In order to wring every drop of potential out of 120mm, we’ve reworked the already stellar dw-link suspension to provide a more bottomless feel and allow for a greater range of tunability. The Trail 429 combines rocket ship pedaling performance with a plushness that genuinely feels like more travel than the numbers indicate. Product Details: - Refined geometry exemplifies the pinnacle of modern race-to-trail performance - New, more progressive dw-link® prioritizes pedaling efficiency yet still rewards riders with plush, controlled travel - 120mm rear suspension travel featuring a vertical trunnion mounted high-volume air shock delivers unprecedented comfort and tunability - Flip chip adjustability allows riders to tailor geometry for either spirited all-round handling or a more progressive and rowdy demeanor - Hassle-free, full-length, internal cable routing with Pivot’s easy-to-service and ultra-quiet Pivot Cable Port System - Fits riders between 4’10” and 6’7” with X-Small to X-Large size offerings - Pivot’s full carbon frame features size-specific ride tuning, leading edge carbon fiber materials, and Pivot’s proprietary hollow core molding technology to ensure that every rider from 4’11” to 6’7” has a bike that feels perfect and performs at the optimum level for their size - Pivot Tool Dock system compatible with mounts under the top tube and integrated into the underside of the frame
