Lithe, agile, sharp, fast and fun, the Shadowcat is a trail-carving expression of blazing speed and feline creative mayhem. Pivot’s latest offering capitalizes on the acceleration and responsiveness of 27.5” wheels and acclaimed dw-link suspension to bring to life a bike that offers transformative capability for riders of every stripe.
A new frame that weighs less than our impressively light Trail 429 frame. Heck, this frame weighs only 45 grams more than our featherlight Mach 4SL. We’re replacing the beloved Mach 5.5 with a 140mm ripper of a bike that weighs less than many dedicated XC machines. Super-low standover; small kittens and playful cats rejoice!
Incredibly capable dw-Link suspension kinematics allow 140mm of travel to pedal with more snap and climb faster than many 120mm bikes. Serious light weight. Cheetah chasing down an antelope acceleration. The soul of a trail shredder with the legs of Usain Bolt.
