The Firebird Pro XT/XTR – Air is built for enduro racing, combining Pivot Cycles’ extremely light Hollow Core carbon frame with a wonderfully plush Fox Factory dw-link™ suspension inspired by Pivot’s premiere downhill bike, the Phoenix. It offers 165mm of rear travel and an impressive 170mm of front travel.

The DH-inspired long dw-link™ maximises the rearward wheel path with 165mm of travel to give impressive levels of handling on the descents, yet still enables it to climb efficiently if uplifts aren’t an option.

The progressive geometry of this bike, with its relaxed head angle, long reach and equally long wheelbase, promotes stability with sharp responsiveness to inspire confidence at high speeds. Since the build is tailored to match different sizes of rider, for example by adjusting the length of the chainstays, the same performance will be delivered, regardless of your height.

Whether you’re climbing or descending, this Firebird is fitted with a Shimano XT M8100 shifter and 10-51t cassette, with a Shimano XTR M9100 rear derailleur, to give you optimum performance. You’ll be able to accelerate with confidence, knowing that the Shimano XT M8120 four-piston calliper will give you ample braking power when needed.

The Firebird is made to work with 29” wheels, but the flip chip will allow you to effortlessly adjust the frame geometry for different conditions or to accommodate 27.5” wheels or a mixed setup. The default is a low bottom bracket setting, which will optimise your control on fast, steep terrain and make room for wider tyres.

Flipping the chip raises the bottom bracket to accommodate a mixed wheelset, while inserting the 17mm extended headset cup achieves a perfect fit for 27.5 wheels. The head angle is steepened too, and together these adjustments encourage better cornering at speed and more efficient climbing.

This model uses the light alloy 30mm-29" DT Swiss XM1700 wheelset with DT Swiss 350 hub and 36t ratchet for rapid engagement. An all-rounder, it lives up to that claim, thanks to rims with a concentration of material only where needed for durability, a ratchet system with sloping teeth for minimum drag and instant engagement, and sturdy hubs and quality spoking that enhance the ride feel.

Benefiting from Super Boost Plus 157 spacing, originally pioneered by Pivot, enables the Firebird to use short chainstays, which are great for tight cornering, tyre clearance and a stiff rear swingarm. The Boost standard furthermore moves the drivetrain out 6mm, promoting better tyre clearance and mud shedding capabilities.

All these elements add up to a bike that handles superbly and manages to be both light and durable. It’s therefore possible to throw it around the singletrack with precision and confidence that the relaxed head angle, long reach and wheelbase will keep the bike stable at speed.
