Pivot Cycles are a new MTB name in the UK and a relatively new name in its home country USA, but one with a long history of performance designs through its creator and designer Chris Cocalis.
Pivot Cycles are focused entirely on MTB, they don’t make road bikes, and currently are centred on full suspension bikes with a concise range that covers all types of riding from the Mach4 lightweight XC bike up to the Phoenix full-on World Cup DH rig.
Do your research and you will find that Chris was the man behind the highly successful and respected Titus brand. He sold that on and downsized to focus on working closely with Dave Weagle and Fox shocks to produce the next level of ‘DW Link’ suspension linkage that is the reason that Pivot bikes suspension performs so well. Couple that with Chris’ superb engineering brain and understanding of materials and you can see why Pivot are so highly thought of in forums and at test demo events.
One nice connection with the UK for Pivot is the early ‘90s MBUK cover boy, 1990 Junior world silver DH medallist, and all-round MTB enthusiast Dave Hemming. Dave now lives in Portland USA but and has become a brand ambassador for Pivot Cycles. I’m sure we are going to hear more about Dave and his new adventures thanks to social media and Dave’s ability at being a great self publicist.
