The Pivot Switchblade is a mountain bike with extraordinary versatility and category-bending capability that redefines performance across every type of trail. We took the progressive long, and low geometry of the original Switchblade and pushed it even further with a longer reach, slacker head angle and steeper seat angle. Always with an eye on confidence-inspiring design, we shortened and straightened the Switchblade’s seat tube to allow for longer travel Dropper Seatposts in a more compact overall frame design.
The adjustable flip chip from our Firebird 29 adds geometry adjustability, enabling the Switchblade to be easily optimized for 29”, 27.5+ or 27.5”/29” reverse mullet setups without compromise.
All of this versatility is packaged in a even lighter, Pivot Hollow Core Carbon frame with plenty of room for a large water bottle in all sizes.
