The race winning Mach 429SL Carbon geometry is tried and tested at tested at the biggest events in the world. On the uphill, you benefit from the latest in dw‐link® suspension design with a Fox Float DPS Kashima Factory shock, performance‐tuned specifically for the Mach 429SL Carbon. You can expect the kind pedaling efficiency our National Champions demand, provided by dw‐link®’s anti‐squat characteristics, instant acceleration and unparalleled climbing traction.
Mach 429SL Carbon is spec’d with the Fox Float DPS (Dual Piston System) shock custom tuned specifically for XC and Endurance racing. The Float DPS shock features settings and a design that allows for an incredibly plush feel with a wide range of damping control while also offering an extremely positive “firm” position for fast climbs. These features are direct complements to Pivot’s suspension tuning and when combined with the dw‐link’s® patented position‐sensitive anti‐squat, gives riders even better traction on steep ups and over rough trail.
Downhill, the 100mm of dw‐link® suspension performs like a longer travel bike, especially when combined with the precision of the new 12x148mm rear end, and the rollover qualities of the 29inch wheel – giving athletes the advantage in technical terrain and inspiring record‐setting descents.
