As soon as it hit the dirt, the Pivot Switchblade started racking up awards throughout the cycling media. Why? Because it’s an ultra-light, ultra-capable aggressive trail bike that punches way above its weight class. The only complaint we ever hear? Not everyone could afford one. So we took the same ultra-stiff frame design, the same 135 millimeters of super smooth dw-link® suspension and the same thoroughly modern, long and low geometry… and crafted this new model from the most sophisticated, hydro-formed aluminum frame components anywhere.
Behold the new Switchblade Aluminum…It’s the same flavor of Switchblade kick ass, for less cash.
Ear-to-ear grins come standard with Pivot's LES Fat. Its full carbon frame features leading-edge materials and Pivot's hollow-core, internal-molding process, resulting in an ultra-lightweight frame featuring a massive down tube and a 132mm Press Fit BB for best-in-class power transfer. The LES Fat features the Swinger II dropout system, enabling you to run almost any wheel and tire combo, easily switch between singlespeed and geared drivetrains, and even tune your chainstay length based on conditions and desired handling characteristics. Included are two headset cup options (Zero Stack and 18mm) for perfect front end geometry at any wheel size. The LES Fat Pro XT RACE 1x includes a Pivot full carbon fork for precise steering and lightweight efficiency on epic adventures, while beefy Maxxis tires mounted to 80mm Sun Ringle Mulefut wheels deliver lo-fi suspension and hi-fi traction on virtually any surface. Shimano’s workhorse XT 1x drivetrain is spun up by a RaceFace Turbine crank. Shimano Deore XT hydraulic brakes offer huge power and great modulation to precisely control speed, even on slippery surfaces. With specs like these, LES Fat is the perfect choice for any big-tire adventure.
The Pivot LES Fat is the world’s most versatile big-tire machine. It's compatible with almost every wheel size available, from 26-inch to 27.5-inch Fat to 29er. The perfect wheel and tire combination? That’s always open to debate. But one thing is beyond dispute: No matter which wheel size you choose, your bike should handle great. Pivot's proprietary Swinger II dropout system guarantees that’s always the case, no matter which wheel and tire combination you use. The ingenious dropouts maintain ideal geometry via an indexed adjustment arc designed into the dropouts—the bigger the wheel and the more clearance you choose, the lower the bottom bracket.
The LES Fat full carbon frame features a svelte top tube and seatstay shaping for comfort on long rides and epic adventures. The full carbon frame features leading-edge materials and Pivot's proprietary hollow-core, internal-molding process. This coveted technology enables Pivot to create an ultra-lightweight frame featuring the largest downtube in the category and a 132mm Press Fit BB for best-in-class power transfer. Additional frame details include the Cable Port System for clean and easy cable routing, three water bottle mounts, and a narrow Q-Factor for better pedaling ergonomics. The LES Fat frameset includes a Pivot-designed carbon, rigid fork that easily accommodates any wheel size with clearance to spare. This full carbon fork features 150mm dropout spacing—the same spacing as fat bike suspension forks, so you can use the same wheels with rigid and suspension forks. Looking for a bike that's ready for anything? The LES Fat is a four-season hardtail that can take you from singletrack to snow to sand with no compromises.
