DESCRIPTION AND FEATURES
Consider the Bar Officially Raised
Pivot’s renowned Mach 6 Carbon is longer, lower and sets a new benchmark for enduro andaggressive trail bikes. The Mach 6’s peerless pedaling efficiency and downhill handling make it the perfectchoice for dropping into black-diamond terrain and hitting technical features at race pace. From peak to podium, the Mach 6 Carbon is enduro performance, redefined.
Long, Low and Ready to Rip
We tweaked every angle on the Mach 6 to perfection. The bike’s slacker 65.75-degree head angle, steeper 74-degree seat angle, and long-travel, downhill-influenced linkage, give it ultra-stable, high-speed handling…and the ability to make short work of wicked, black diamond descents.
When climbing, the newly-steepened seat angle and extended cockpit of the Mach 6 Carbon increase traction and keep the bike balanced and centered on the most technical climbs, enabling you to conquer obstacles you never thought could be cleaned.
Though we went long and low on the Mach 6, smaller riders still fit the bike easily. That’s because our Medium, Large and X-Large see significant increases in top tube length, while our Small and X-Small models remain compact, in keeping with our rider-size-specific design philosophy. What’s more, smaller riders still reap the climbing advantages of the steeper seat angle and the capable descending traits that come courtesy of the slacker head angle.
Cutting-Edge Carbon Frame
With our exclusive hollow-core,internal molding process and the right combination of carbon materials and design features, we’ve created a bike with an incredibly lightweight and durable chassis. The Mach 6 boasts a combination of stiffness and strength that’s close to what you’ll find on our World Cup downhill designs. The large frame cross sections, double wishbone rear triangle, ultra-stiff clevis and linkage, and large, suspension specific, EnduroMax bearings…add them all up and you get the class-leading power transfer and the point-and-shoot ride quality essential in a top-flight enduro bike.
The Mach 6 features Dave Weagle’s acclaimed dw-link® suspension, dialed for long-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 the Mach 6 is matched only by its exceptionally efficient climbing for faster, easier ascents –getting you to the next descent before everyone else.We spec’d the Mach 6 with a FOX Factory Kashima Float DPX2 shock, tuned specifically for enduro and trail applications. The new Float DPX2 features X2 oil-flow architecture in a lighter, better pedaling package. The DPX2 also offers an incredibly wide range of tuning options to suit a wide range of rider weights and preferences; those include three on-the-fly lever adjustments—Open, Medium and Firm options,with an additional adjustment for tuning low speed compression on the open setting.
The EVOL air sleeve on the Mach 6’s DPX2 significantly reduces the force required to initiate travel, for the ultimate in small bump compliance and better bottom-out resistance. When combined with the ultra-low friction Kashima coating, this design offers an incredibly plush feel with a wide range of damping adjustments.
Up front, the Mach 6 is spearheaded by the latest 160mm FOX 36 fork,now featuring an EVOL air spring and updated uppers for unparalleled small bump sensitivity. It’s the perfect fork for aggressive riding.
