STAFF PICK

"If you want to buy one bike that does everything, this is the bike for you; it jumps, it bumps, it pumps, it flows, it shows, that Pivot knows how it goes when it comes to bikes."

- Seth, The BackCountry Bike Mechanic

"Pretty sweet versatile bike, blasts up the mountain, and then very capable on the descent, corners extremely well."

- Patrick, The BackCountry Manager

OVERVIEW

We tailored every detail of the Switchblade to deliver a bike that’s ready to conquer the entire mountain. Progressive geometry broadens the performance envelope while retaining the versatility that made the original so good. Always with an eye on confidence-inspiring design, we shortened, straightened, and steepened the Switchblade’s seat tube to allow for longer travel dropper seat posts. The all-new compact frame design reduces weight and increases stiffness, but perhaps best of all, it allows for greatly reduced stand over height across a broad range of sizes. With an industry-leading fit philosophy, the Switchblade offers an ideal fit for riders from 5’ to 6’7” tall.
