Pivot LES SL Carbon Race XT Mountain Bike

Purchase - $4199.00

While some may argue that modern full-suspension bikes are just as capable and snappy when it comes to cross country racing, we'd beg to differ. There's something to be said for the undeniable power of a hardtail, especially when you're soaring up ribbons of single track with a podium on your mind. When it comes to cross-country racing, Pivot's LES has long been a favorite of ours, and in its latest generation it's streamlined for further domination. Pivot's new LES SL scales down its weight, and skips the swap-able drop out system for full carbon, streamlining this race rocket so that you don't have to carry any extra weight with you on ultra-endurance and cross country races. With a size medium frame weighing in at only 2. 3lb, the LES SL scales in well over half a pound lighter than its predecessor. That doesn't mean this bike flexes like a wet noodle under power though, because Pivot's expertise in carbon fiber allows them to craft a frame with a high stiffness to weight ratio, all while maintaining the legendary ride quality that Pivot is known for. This allows you to save energy over the long haul while providing planted and predictable handling across any trail surface. The LES SL achieves this slimmed down profile thanks to a new carbon lay-up that uses Pivot's proven Hollow Core Molding Technology in conjunction with cutting edge raw materials to create a frame that is both lightweight and stiff, but also has perfectly-tuned compliance so you don't get too beat up when the going gets rough. While the previous LES used the Swinger II dropout system that allowed you to alternate between 29in and 27. 5+ wheels as well as geared and singlespeed setups, the LES SL uses ultra-lightweight carbon dropouts that are compatible with 29in wheels only, with enough clearance for up to 2. 3in tires. Pivot also made the switch to a fully integrated headset, which saves additional grams and also lowers the stack height--both good things for the discerning rider and racer...
