The new Switchblade has a slacker head angle, steeper seat angle, increased rach and a longer wheelbase than its predecessor. Size-specific chainstays are tucked in and responsive but grow incrementally longer on larger frames.

This translates to added stability at high speeds while still maintaining the snap and pop that is ingrained in the Switchblade's DNA.

The "Talon" switchblade is a limited edition model commissioned to celebrate 35 years of MTB innovation from Pivot's design team. The graphics and colour pay homage to Pivot Founder Chris Cocalis's first MTB design, the "Sun Eagle Talon"
