PIVOT REVAMPS SHUTTLE FOR 2020
Pivot's Shuttle electric mountain bike gets improved for 2020 model year.
Pivot Cycles today announces two new models of the Shuttle for 2020. If you remember, we liked the original Shuttle enough to name it “Bike of the Year” for last year’s Interbike Innovation Awards.
The original Shuttle, even though priced at $10,000, has been selling out in shops. Still, some riders balk at that price.
“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.”
Two new models built with the exact same full carbon Shuttle frameoffer class leading eMTB performance. The RaceXTlevel Shuttle features Shimano’s STEPS E7000 drive unit, an XT drivetrain and Performance level Fox suspension. Our Team XTR version has Shimano’s STEPS E-8000 drive unit, the new 12-speed XTR drivetrain and Factory level Fox suspension with Kashima coatings.
The updated superlight and ultra-capable full carbon frame, new spec,and two models with a new lower price optionmakes it the most advanced eMTB we’ve ever developed.New 29” wheels and a 160mm travelFox 36 fork with 44mm offset takes the Shuttle’s legendary enduro performance to a new level. Updated spec makes the Shuttle one of the lightest eMTBs on the Market. The Team build comes in at just 44.75 pounds (20.29 KG) and the Race level is only 1.5 pounds (.68 KG) heavier.
The same fork specs that make our endurorace models shred so hard gives the Shuttle next level feel and capability on the trail. This 44mm offset, 160mm travel Fox 36 fork adds high-speed stability, cornering ability, and overall performance on the most technical terrain. Experience nothing bu fade-free performance and control on the longest, roughest descents thanks to the custom tuned Fox Float DPX2 shock’s added oil capacity and twin tube internal architecture. Add in the characteristics of Dave Weagle’s dw-link suspension, and you get best in class pedaling performance and traction –important traits when boosting up technical trail features.
