Pivot Mach 429 SL Carbon
It wasn’t until we rode the cross-country race courses of the Phoenix metro area that we truly understood the Mach 429 SL Carbon. Lightning fast, razor sharp, and sure-footed, this 100 mm 29″ wheel bike is not only race-bred, it is race-proven. Having won nearly every award in its category, Outside magazine has referred to the 429 SL Carbon as “the most technically advanced race bike on the market”. Sub-23 lb complete builds are, for some manufacturers, a weird science experiment. For Pivot, they are an art. We once the mistake of thinking of the SL Carbon as the “weight weenie” brother of our beloved 429 Trail, but have seen the light….lightest bike in the building, that is. We carry the 429 SL Carbon because we admire the hell out of anyone crushing it on a short-travel 29’er, especially one that says Pivot on the downtube.
