THE NEW PIVOT SHUTTLE SL
Lightweight and powerful, Pivot’s new Shuttle SL amps up single track performance.
Smooth, stealthy, and as nimble as any unassisted trail bike, the Shuttle SL will turn skeptics into singletrack superheroes.
The Shuttle SL is a cutting-edge new trail bike that redefines how we think about – and how we ride – mountain bikes. It blurs the defined boundaries between full-power e-MTB’s and lightweight unassisted trail bikes, bringing to life both the benefits of electric assist AND the telepathic responsiveness that only an absence of mass can provide. This is a game changer.
“The Shuttle SL bridges the gap between an analog bike and an e-bike,” says Chris Cocalis, founder and CEO of Pivot. “It gives you that same dialed in, nimble traditional mountain bike feel while the power characteristics provide that perfect amount of an assistance making it feel like you’re having a really strong day on the bike-only you get to have it every day! We did this by laser-focusing on the strength to weight ratio, geometry and suspension to create an insanely light, yet perfectly powerful e-MTB.”
Think of this as the ultimate bionic full suspension trailbike. a 36.25lbs (under 16.5kg), 132mm travel, do-it-all mountain bike with a 60Nm FAZUA motor hidden just above the bottom bracket and a 430Wh battery nested in the downtube. The FAZUA motor disengages completely when not in use; this makes for silent, drag-free operation when unassisted and an abundance of up-tempo, terrain devouring boost when you need it. The Shuttle SL brings the power to go further, the power to go bigger, with no weight penalty. Dw-link suspension, proprietary carbon fiber construction, size specific chainstays and super low standover all contribute to the Shuttle SL’s unrivaled performance; an e-bike that could only be the product of Pivot Cycles pedigree.
