THE NEXT STEP IN THE MOUNTAIN BIKE SPORT

Combining all the features that Pivot is known for in bike development and bike design, with the most advanced eMTB engine technology, results in a new benchmark on the trails. At the heart of our design is the 140mm carbon frame with fully integrated Shimano Steps E8000 engine. To enable the most compact eMTB system, we have applied our hollow core forming process and developed a special solution for the full integration of the powerful engine and battery system – including a carbon composite plate on the down tube for added protection.

 Furthermore, there are of course all the features that are expected of a Pivot Trail / Enduro bike:

Our long and deep Trail / Enduro geometry, 157 mm Super Boost Plus width at the rear, short 437 mm chainstays and our dw-link rear end, specially adapted for eMTBs, provide plenty of tire freedom, rigidity, easy handling and high performance on the trail. The result is a bike that is on par with our world-class enduro bikes in terms of both ride quality and design – with an incredibly low weight of 19.95 kg, it sets a new standard for the eMTB category.

SHIMANO STEPS E8000 – INTUITIVE MTB ENGINE SUPPORT

With the Steps E8000 system, Shimano has developed the first off-road engine system that fully matches the natural riding style of a mountain biker. The ease of use and the elimination of the delay when inserting the engine, the system provides a harmonious support on the trail. The shuttle makes it possible to conquer new terrain into which other eMTBs do not even penetrate. It’s just as fun uphill as it is downhill. Your exits will be more extensive and you will tackle trails that you would have declared inaccessible on a normal mountain bike.

DW-LINK ™ AND FOX SUSPENSION FOR EMTB

Shimano’s motor unit is ideal for use with our dw-link ™ kinematics. It allows us to place the pivot points so we can get the best rear triangle performance and the shortest chainstays (437 mm) of all eMTBs. The patented anti-squat characteristics of the dw-link ™ are perfectly matched to the influences of the driver and the engine, so that the bike does not wobble under load. On the shuttle our kinematics for medium suspension travel is used in a special eMTB vote. A wider and more stable damper link design with large bearings, such as our long-stroke bikes, dramatically improves responsiveness and increases traction many times over – allowing you to fully enjoy the benefits of engine assistance exactly where you need it most.

The 140mm dw-link ™ travel of the eMTB is controlled by a specially-tuned Fox DPX2. To absorb the higher loads, speeds and extra torque of the engine, we use more compression damping as well as tailor-made deflections and bearings. To harmonize perfectly with the rear, the latest version of the Fox 36 29 “suspension fork was installed – for aggressive and balanced handling on every trail.

THE WIDEST SIZE SELECTION IN THE EMTB MARKET

The compact design of the battery allows us to offer the shuttle in four sizes, from S to XL, to give the ideal size to riders from 162 to 193+ cm. So can be decided individually on preference, Reach and driving style: for a more playful driving feel one accesses to the smaller frame; for smooth running in technical terrain to the larger bike with more reach.

SHIMANO STEPS E8000 – INTUITIVE MTB ENGINE SUPPORT

With the Steps E8000 system, Shimano has developed the first off-road engine system that fully matches the natural riding style of a mountain biker. The ease of use and the elimination of the delay when inserting the engine, the system provides a harmonious support on the trail. The shuttle makes it possible to conquer new terrain into which other eMTBs do not even penetrate. It’s just as fun uphill as it is downhill. Your exits will be more extensive and you will tackle trails that you would have declared inaccessible on a normal mountain bike.

INNOVATIVE BATTERY ASSEMBLY

Shimano’s most compact, powerful and lightest battery is used on the shuttle. This is mounted from below in a carbon casing. Combined with vibration damping materials and seals from the automotive sector, we were able to realize a very compact, safe and very lightweight frame design with high stability. An additional bonus is the easy accessibility and the fast battery removal.
