Pivot's 207mm-travel Phoenix owns A-Line, shreds Porcupine Rim, and rules at Highland Bike Park — and everywhere else! Even with all that travel, it still accelerates out of corners like an all-mountain bike thanks to its dw-link/Fox RC4 rear end. Like all Pivots, this big rig pedals with authority, and destroys square-edge hits with plush, active travel. And since stiffness is key, the Phoenix is outfitted with a 1.5-inch head tube along with a massive hydroformed down tube, oversize pivots, and a stout 150x12mm rear through-axle. Its low center of gravity, low BB height and slack head angle ensure that this sled corners telepathically and simply makes you faster.
