Introducing the New Pivot Shuttle

Since Shimano first brought the Pivot Shuttles onto the STEPs demo vans, consumers throughout the country have been thrilled with the bike’s performance and handling abilities.

The original Pivot Shuttle was one of the first carbon e-bikes brought into the US, boasting a lightweight frame and sleek, integrated battery in the downtube. With the introduction of the new Pivot Shuttle, Pivot has stepped up the game even more this time around spec’ing the all new XTR 12-spd and Factory level Fox suspension with Kashima coating on the Team XTR Shuttle, weighing in at just 44.75 pounds.

Pivot has also launched a new STEPS e7000 version Shuttle, answering consumers request for a lower price point model. The Race XT level shuttle features the STEPS e7000 drive unit, an XT M8000 drivetrain and Performance level Fox Suspension, weighing in at 46.25 pounds, just 1.5 pounds heavier than the Team XTR Shuttle.

“Since day one, riders have been loving the Shuttle but asking for a more affordable version,” says Pivot Cycles President and CEO, Chris Cocalis. “I am pleased that this day is finally here, and we did it while significantly improving the bike at the same time. And the Team model takes that performance up yet another notch.”

The 44mm offset, 160mm travel Fox 36 fork spec’d on both models adds high stability, cornering ability, and overall performance on the most technical terrain. Experience nothing but fade-free performance and control on the longest, roughest descents thanks to the custom tuned Fox Flat DPX2 shock’s added oil capacity and twin tube internal architecture. Add in the characterizes of Dave Weagle’s dw-link suspension, and you get best in class pedaling performance and traction – important traits when boosting technical trail features.
