Pivot Switchblade Aluminum Launched

Chris Cocalis and Pivot Cycles have coming out swinging with a one-two punch again. How do you improve the already sick Pivot Switchblade Carbon that has won several mountain bike media acclaims? You make another one in aluminum that’s how. Pivot has already done so well the Switchblade Carbon, however they would sometimes get feedback that they needed a more affordable Switchblade line. After all, a high priced carbon isn’t always in every persons bike budget. Well today, the request for a cheaper Switchblade has been answered.  With an all new frame building technique, the new aluminum model still keeps the supple but efficient 135mm of DW Link rear travel along with the ability to run both 29er and 27.5 plus wheels.
