PRESS RELEASE: Pivot Cycles
A REVOLUTIONARY MTB EVOLUTION
The Shuttle looks a lot like our other Trail and Enduro models because it is – it has the same type of progressive geometry, ultra-capable suspension, and a state-of-the-art lightweight carbon-fiber chassis that magically makes you a better rider in the most demanding terrain. Shimano’s STEPS eMTB system amplifies your capabilities, enabling you to ride harder, ride further, and explore previously unthinkable routes. The Shuttle is everything that’s great about mountain biking – only now, you get to experience more of it. Way moreeMTB WEIGHT MATTERS
Once you experience the Shuttle’s sub 45 pound weight, you quickly realize that lighter is better, way better. Every time you slow down, change direction, or get a little sendy and leave the ground – the fun part of riding – a Shuttle behaves just like a regular non-assisted bike. The lightweight Shuttle utilizes its high power-to-weight ratio to make accelerating and climbing faster (and easier). You know, the other parts of riding that make mountain biking so dynamic and incredibly fun.EVERY COMPONENT DELIVERS
The new Shuttle comes in two build options so you can choose built to the hilt or high value - but either way, our smart specs deliver maximum performance. Custom DT Swiss 29er eMTB specific wheels with thirty percent stiffer Super Boost Plus axle spacing makes the Shuttle fast, nimble and durable. Shimano’s XTR 12-speed group, Fox Factory level suspension, and Phoenix Team carbon components give the Team build the dreamy kind of performance that’ll never need an upgrade. It is the best of the best. Our Race build delivers the same kind of performance and on the trail experience at a value price. Every part matters. On the Shuttle, every part delivers.eMTB OPTIMIZED SUSPENSION
The same fork specs that make our enduro race 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. Go ahead - throw the longest, toughest descent at the Shuttle. You’ll experience nothing but fade-free performance and control thanks to the custom tuned Fox Float DPX2 shock’s added oil capacity and twin tube internal architecture. Add in the incredible dw-link suspension specifically optimized for the Shuttle, and you get best in class pedaling performance and traction – important traits when boosting up technical trail features. And of course, it absolutely sends it downhill giving its 140mm of wheel travel traction, support, and control any time the ride goes full enduro. And trust us… they will.POWERED BY SHIMANO
Shimano’s STEPS eMTB components deliver class-leading power, tunability, feel, and integration. Shimano’s STEPS systems provide a smooth, natural-feeling assist to your own pedal power. No awkward power lags. No annoying resistance in the drivetrain. We mount the compact, lightweight and powerful e-bike battery to a bottom-load full carbon tray of our own design. This carbon tray is a structural component enabling us to create the strongest and lightest frame possible. The Shuttle is easy to operate. Intuitive Shimano controls with a new ergonomic handlebar remote switch make fine-tuning your power output on the fly simple and seamless. Likewise, the Shuttle features externally-accessible charging ports for quick and effortless charging of your battery.
The Shuttle is available as a complete bike in two different models: The Shuttle Race XT comes in Black with Sterling Silver and costs $7,899 USD while the Steel Blue Shuttle Team XTR sells for $10,499 USD. The Shuttle is available now, in all sizes, at key Pivot dealers worldwide.
