The Pivot Firebird 29 is a long travel 29er for the hardest trails in the world, and yet it’ll let your legs carry you to the trail-head easily and relaxed. This enduro bike’s very plush suspension offers a very composed ride, encouraging the rider to go ever faster. The beautifully finished, high-end Pivot Firebird doesn’t even flinch at big jumps in the bike park. And the stiff carbon wheels are particularly convincing in berms, with lots of support and precision, while allowing the Firebird 29 to accurately hold its line at lower speeds in technical terrain. The short chainstays and long front triangle of the bike, however, are best exploited by experienced riders at high speeds in steep terrain. The bike rewards active and aggressive riding with playful handling and lots of fun on the trail!
