Dominate new terrain with the new Mach 6 Aluminum.
Pivot makes the best enduro/trail bike in the world, and now we are bringing the incredibly high standards of our Mach 6 flagship design to an aluminum frame. With the all-new Mach 6 Aluminum, we’ve met our carbon frame standards for stiffness, power transfer and perfectly dialed suspension performance, culminating in a bike that raises every rider’s ability to conquer aggressive, technical trails.
With input from Pivot’s roster of world class DH and Enduro athletes, we’ve dialed in every feature of our renowned design and set a new standard for the ultimate enduro/trail machine. The Mach 6 Aluminum devours singletrack – the 27.5” wheels, slack head angle, short chainstays and low bottom bracket height all add up to incredibly versatile and capable bike that redefines aluminum in the enduro/trail category.
Alloy Meets Enduro
In the Mach 6 Aluminum, riders will find all the features that have made this the “most versatile enduro bike on the planet” along with the next generation, variable wall thickness, hydroforming technology that brings Pivot performance to aluminum. This new forming method, one we have been working on for over three years, allows the engineers at Pivot to create highly complex tube shapes that were previously only achievable in carbon, while varying the internal wall thicknesses within extremely precise measurement ranges to achieve our demanding stiffness and strength targets.
All New Linkage Design
Stiffness, precision and traction equal confidence on even the sketchiest trails. The Mach 6 Aluminum delivers this confidence in spades by employing the same new linkage design as the Mach 6 Carbon:
All new linkages offer huge gains in overall stiffness – the upper linkage alone is 40% wider, 150% stiffer and utilizes larger bearings at the frame attachment point.
The new, redesigned clevis is now lighter, stronger and provides increased clamping force on the shock body.
When combined with the incredibly stiff alloy frameset, the result is point-and-shoot control that makes technical challenges easier for every rider.
The new rear triangle also incorporates Boost® spacing – the extra width produces an overall increase in both frame stiffness and power transfer and a massive increase in tire clearance, allowing for a wider range of condition-specific tire options – essential for racers on the Enduro World Series Circuit and for riders who want to make the most of every single day on the dirt.
DW-Link® And Fox Suspension
The Mach 6 Aluminum features acclaimed dw-link® suspension, dialed for longer travel applications. The dw-link®’s famed anti-squat delivers non-stop traction, while the variable wheel travel path provides unmatched square-edge bump absorption and control on technical descents. The responsiveness and bottomless feel of this ride is matched only by the exceptionally efficient climbing capability for faster, easier transfers – getting you to the next killer descent before everyone else.
The Mach 6 Aluminum is spec’d with the 2016 Fox Float DPS Kashima Shock with the new EVOL air sleeve, custom tuned specifically for enduro and trail riding. DPS stands for Dual Piston System – the shock features two separate sets of valving, similar to what you would find in Fox’s external reservoir Float X design, while the EVOL sleeve significantly reduces the force required to initiate travel, for the ultimate in small bump compliance and better bottom-out resistance. The Float DPS shock also features new settings and a design that allows for an incredibly plush feel with a wide range of damping control while also offering an extremely positive “firm” position for those long fire-road climbs. When combined with the dw-link’s® patented position-sensitive anti-squat, this system gives riders even better traction on steep climbs and over rough trail, making the Mach 6 Aluminum a climbing machine with a nearly bottomless feel in even the most aggressive terrain.
To match Mach 6 Carbon’s rear suspension, we’ve paired it with the newest 160mm Fox 36 – the perfect fork to match any trail rider’s need for aggressive, balanced handling on every part of the mountain.
Pro Details And Frame Features
To keep things simple and clean, the Mach 6 Aluminum utilizes external full housing cable routing, run along the downtube, with internal routing through the chainstay. Stealth dropper posts are no problem, with easy routing through the seat tube.
Featured on the Mach 6 Aluminum is Pivot’s ultra-clean, removable front derailleur mount. For those that want to run two chainrings, this mount offers the best shifting performance you can get, utilizing Shimano’s new side-swing front derailleur system. For those who love the simple functionality of 1x systems, remove the front derailleur mount for an incredibly sleek, clean installation with almost no evidence of the un-needed hardware.
All of our mountain bikes feature the PF92 bottom bracket. Collaboratively developed by our engineers and Shimano, this allows for wider pivots and better bearing support, both of which contribute to increased frame stiffness and strength as well as the best bearing longevity. Other essential details include post mount disc brake mounts for easy set up and weight savings, internal stealth dropper compatibility and Enduro Max cartridge bearings throughout. The Mach 6 Aluminum is available in a five sizes to fit riders from 4’11” to 6’2”+ from XS to XL.
