Why We Like The Trail 429 Team XX1 AXS Carbon Wheel Mountain Bike

The industry has a tendency to label bikes as "quiver killers" and "jack of all trades," and we've been guilty of falling into this camp as bikes have grown slacker, longer, and lower for descending confidence and high-speed composure, but without penalizing much in terms of pedaling and climbing efficiency, due to steeper seat tube angles, lightweight and stiff carbon frames, and 29-inch wheels carrying momentum up climbs and steamrolling imposing boulders standing in your way. We'll try to avoid using these terms when describing the Trail 429 by Pivot, even though it certainly punches well above its weight, in terms of providing far more capability on the trail than most riders will ever use, save for more advanced riders putting this bike through its paces in tech meccas like Moab's legendary slickrock, BC's famed North Shore bridges, or even Pisgah's root and rock-infested singletrack.

Perhaps the most natural place to start when diving into the new Trail is with its completely reshaped frame that gives the bike its progressive geometry. Unlike the smooth swooping top and down tubes we saw on the Mach 429 Trail, the Trail 429 is a bit more direct, with a more angular approach that brings the bike into the cutting edge with clean lines, a slacker head tube to instill confidence and composure on steep lines packed with chunky granite, and a steep seat tube that keeps you dialed in the cockpit when you push your way up punchy switchbacks laced with root lattices.

The new Trail 429 carries on with the pivotal DW-link suspension design that you've seen on the 429 Trails of the past, keeping your traction locked in, and squat at a minimum. The Trail's DW-Link suspension owes its capabilities to a handful of cues taken from the Switchblade, teasing a virtual depth out of the 120mm travel to conquer lines that you'd previously only charge down on a proper 6-inch trail sled.

Balancing the build with materials that can handle the terrain, the Trail 429 is crafted from a painstakingly precise mix of composite fibers and resin, then meticulously laid to create a frame that finds the happy medium of strength, stiffness, and weight. The chassis itself benefits from Pivot's hollow-core internal molding process for uniform, controlled wall thicknesses and material distribution. This process virtually eliminates inconsistencies and resin pooling, increasing structural integrity while targeting areas for weight loss.

*Due to unprecedented demand in the global supply chain and the bike industry over the last 18 months, material weight and exact components are subject to change. We are working diligently to keep tech specs updated, and any adjustments will be minor. If you have any questions, reach out to a Gearhead by chatting online or calling 1-888-276-7130.
