Get the call up with the LES Hardtail
Contenders for victory want a cross country hardtail that presents every advantage. In a sport where success is measured in half seconds, racers recognize that having the right equipment is essential. The Pivot LES combines incredible efficiency with the smoothness and trail tuning that the world’s best athletes need to outlast and outpace the competition.
Athletes Choose Pivot
Pivot’s cross country designs are the choice of top XC, short track and endurance racers around the world. Rose Grant, (Stan’s/Pivot Racing, 2x US National Marathon Champion), Mike Hall (2014, 2016 Tour Divide Winner and all-time record holder), Taylor Lideen (NUE Series race winner) and Jason English (World Solo 24 Hour Champion) all choose Pivot’s LES. We are proud to support our athletes on the international stage, from Rio to the World Cup to Endurance events around the globe.
Carbon Frame Design
The new LES has dropped over 50 grams over the original design. Using leading edge carbon fiber and our proprietary hollow core, internal–mandrel process, the engineers at Pivot have created a frame that offers racers a best-in-class hardtail ride tuned for the drive to the finish line over any terrain. Specific frame features include the oversized box section downtube and bottom bracket area, tapered head tube and meticulously engineered seat and chainstays. Combined, these features offer the best ride feel and significantly reduced athlete fatigue on even the longest courses.
For the best energy transfer possible, we’ve added Boost 110mm front and 148mm rear dropout spacing. Efficiency freaks will love the extra power you can lay down with ultra stiff Boost wheels, and the extra room between hub flanges gives 29” wheels a ride feel and durability that rivals any wheel size, without sacrificing the rollover capabilities of bigger wheels.
Swinger II Dropouts And 29”/27.5”+ Compatibility
The LES becomes a one bike quiver with the race-light version of our patented Swinger II dropout system. This clever bit of Pivot Cycles engineering enables you to run both 29” and 27.5”+ wheelsizes and easily switch between singlespeed and geared drivetrains all while maintaining ideal chainstay length and geometry. When hardtail riders want to let their hair down, 27.5+ is a fun, capable and entertaining alternative to a traditional racing configuration.
Electronic Integration And The Pivot Cable Port System
Pivot is the industry leader in electronic shifting integration. Universally acclaimed as the most advantageous component option for racers, the incredible gear-selection intelligence of Di2 componentry is perfectly integrated into the LES via the innovative Pivot Cable Port System.
Whether you choose to go the traditional shifting route or opt for Shimano’s game changing system, all of your cables, housing, wires and batteries are neatly tucked away for the ultimate in weather and impact resistance, no matter what set up you choose, now or in the future.
New School World Cup Geometry
World Cup racers seeking a hardtail option that excels on every kind of terrain love Pivot’s new school racing geometry. The LES maintains every advantage while climbing, and is far more capable on technical trail and while descending and cornering.
The LES is compatible with 100 to 130mm forks to give you a wide range of options when it comes to dialing in for your riding style. Choose a shorter travel fork and a 29”wheel for F1- speeds. When the course calls for fun, 120mm of travel combined with 27.5+ tires is a combination that guarantees smiles.
All the Right Details
We’ve designed this full carbon frame with the best in Pivot detailing. The LES is easily 2x compatible with a direct mount front derailleur, and for those who love the simple functionality of 1x systems, remove the mount for an incredibly sleek, clean installation with no evidence of the un-needed hardware.
Other essential details include post mount disc brake mounts for easy set up and weight savings and mounts for 2 water bottles on every frame. The LES is available in 4 sizes – S, M, L, XL – and in two great colors.
