How do you take something known for its incredible ride, weight, and stiffness and make it better? Building it from carbon usually does the trick. Pivot's Mach 429 Carbon rocks a light, stiff carbon frame and dw-link suspension to give you unrivaled climbing traction and bob-free acceleration. And this thing is seriously stiff, too, with a 92mm-wide BB, stout 142x12mm rear through-axle, tapered head tube and a 1-piece carbon rocker, all of which combine for a bike that responds and corners like a dream. Add a 120mm Fox fork, SRAM's 1x11 X01 group, lightweight DT Swiss wheels, and a carbon bar and post and you have yourself a serious trail machine that shreds in practically all dirt disciplines.
