Shadowcat – Pivot Cycles

Blazing Speed and Creative Mayhem

Shadowcat? Yes, Shadowcat.

Shadowcat? Yes, Shadowcat.

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.

Lithe

Lithe

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!
Pivot bike gear

Fast

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.
The combination of ultra-lightweight, suspension tuning and geometry results in a bike that has an incredibly poppy and fast feeling. From the beginning, the goal was to build a very nimble, ultralight trailbike. The Shadowcat is a super-capable Rocketship that just puts a huge smile on your face wherever you ride it.
