Pivot The Vault
Over several years as a retail partner, we have come to trust Pivot as masters of off-road design. So when Pivot engineers wiped the slate clean and began designing a competition ready gravel and cyclocros bike with no preconceived notions, we were curious. If you’ve been reading bios for the rest of the bikes in our Gravel / Road collection, you have no doubt noticed a trend: versatility. The Pivot Vault is no exception. Many of the bike’s design features are tailored for the racecourse (great clearance for pedaling and obstacles, comfortable shouldering via top tube design, and point and shoot acceleration, for example), but we also tested this bike on our backyard gravel climbs and descents. Thanks to Pivot’s next generation geometry featuring shorter chainstays and increased room for bigger tires (700C – 48C), we felt stable and predictable on surfaces we may otherwise never have tackled on a traditional cx bike. We carry the Pivot Vault because we know it is no one-trick-pony. Ride this baby to victory, and then ride it into the sunset. The Vault can handle it.
