Pivot Cycles dropped their Trail 429 platform over a year ago now. Our take was it was an epic little ride that was very capable, though the addition of a burlier fork would be more than welcome.
Fast forward a year and our dreams became reality, well, Pivot launched a new limited-edition Trail 429 Enduro build, replicating the custom builds of hard-charging customers and Pivot employees, and unleashing the bike’s full potential.
Watch Bernard Kerr blow some steam off on the new Trail 429!
So what’s the spec you ask? 140mm travel, 44mm offset Fox Factory 36 with GRIP2 damper in Team Orange, A New Factory DPX2 Shock with a custom Pivot tune, Fox Factory Transfer dropper post with Kashima coat, Shimano hollow-forged XT crank, 34mm wide Reynolds Enduro Carbon 29er wheels, and Maxxis Minion tires front & rear.
“We know how aggressively the Trail 429 can be ridden, this custom build is an opportunity for customers to experience how many of us here at Pivot ride the Trail 429 on the rough technical terrain of the nearby South Mountain Park.”
