The new Firebird features super-short 16.95” chainstays and Boost spacing, and fits 27.5” wheels with tyres up to 2.5” wide.
Building on its reputation as the bike for all-day missions on black diamond terrain, the Firebird now features Phoenix DH-inspired long-reach measurements combined with a 65-degree head angle to deliver stability.
“The Firebird is already known as a long travel bike that can take huge hits, and is also an incredibly capable technical climber,” said Pivot Cycles President and CEO, Chris Cocalis. “This new bike takes that reputation for enduro-versatility and ups the ante by incorporating our long and low geometry, and super short chainstays. This geometry really puts the rider 'in' the bike, and adds up to an incredibly stable ride at high speeds and in super steep technical challenges.”
The Firebird, with 170mm of dw-link suspension, features a new carbon frame design that has enabled Pivot’s engineering team to drop weight – to under 12kg – and increase strength and stiffness. The bike incorporates Pivot’s signature design features: the same double wishbone rear triangle and linkage design found on the Phoenix DH, Boost spacing, the Pivot Cable Port System for super-clean internal cable routing and fully Di2 integration and low durometer rubberized frame protection.
The Firebird is available immediately as a complete bike in nine different configurations, in all sizes, at key Pivot dealers worldwide.
