Today, Pivot Cycles introduces the new Shuttle – an updated superlight and ultra-capable full carbon frame, new spec, and two models with a new lower price option makes it the most advanced eMTB we’ve ever developed. New with 29” wheels and longer 160mm travel Fox 36 fork with 44mm offset takes the Shuttle’s legendary Enduro performance to a new level. Updated spec makes the Shuttle one of the lightest eMTBs on the market. The “Shuttle TEAM” weighs in at just 44.75 pounds (20.29 KG) and the “Shuttle RACE” weighs only 1.5 pounds (0.68 KG) more.
The two new models are built with the exact same full carbon Shuttle frame offer class leading eMTB performance. Shuttle RACE is an XT level build and features Shimano’s STEPS E7000 drive unit, an XT drivetrain and Performance level Fox suspension. The Shuttle TEAM is built with Shimano’s STEPS E-8000 drive unit, the new 12-speed XTR mechanical drivetrain and Factory level Fox suspension with Kashima coatings.
“Since day one, riders have been loving the Shuttle but asking for a more affordable version,” says Pivot Cycles President and CEO, Chris Cocalis. “I am pleased that this day is finally here, and we did it while significantly improving the bike at the same time and the Shuttle TEAM model really takes that performance up yet another notch”
The same fork specs that make our Enduro race models shred so hard gives the Shuttle next level feel and capability on the trail. This 44mm offset, 160mm travel Fox 36 fork adds high-speed stability, cornering ability, and overall performance on the most technical terrain. Experience nothing but fade-free performance and control on the longest, roughest descents thanks to the custom tuned Fox Float DPX2 shock’s added oil capacity and twin tube internal architecture. Add in the characteristics of Dave Weagle’s dw-link® suspension and you get best in class pedaling performance and traction – important traits when boosting up technical trail features.
