Pivot Cycles Shuttle E-Bike –Were pleased to say we now have the Pivot Shuttle in stock and ready to demo.
Go further, ride harder, and conquer the toughest technical challenges with Pivot’s revolutionary eMTB. At 19.95kg (44lbs) for a complete bike, the full carbon Shuttle sets a new benchmark for light weight, while the progressive geometry, perfectly balanced chassis and eMTB tuned dw-link™ suspension bring authentic pro-level enduro bike performance to the eMTB category. The Shuttle is a new way to mountain bike, making every rider feel like a superhero, and opening doors to rides that you’ve never dreamed possible.
Why the Pivot Shuttle e-bike?
The Next Step in Mountain Biking
The Pivot Shuttle combines every renowned feature of Pivot Cycles design and engineering with the most advanced eMTB system available, to produce an entirely new approach to trail riding. The heart of the design is a 140mm travel full carbon frame with fully integrated Shimano Steps E8000 pedal assist system. We’ve utilized our proprietary hollow core internal carbon molding process and custom-integrated Shimano’s powerful battery system to create the most compact eMTB drive system available – fully encased inside the carbon downtube with a molded carbon composite skidplate for additional protection.
We’ve incorporated all the features you expect from a Pivot trail / enduro bike – long and low enduro/ trail geometry, 157mm Superboost Plus spacing for stiffness and tire clearance, sub-437mm short chainstays for effortless manuals, and dw-link suspension – tuned specifically for the demands of eMTB. The net effect is a chassis that both looks and rides exactly like any of Pivot’s world-class enduro bikes, at an incredibly low weight of just 19.95kg, (44lbs) to set a new standard for light weight in the eMTB category.
Shimano Steps E8000 – Intuitive MTB Pedal Assist
The Shimano Steps E8000 system is the first off-road specific pedal assist system, one that is truly complementary to a mountain biker’s natural riding style. With no power lag and easy to use controls, the system responds to your pedaling in a way that is natural and fully integrated into the ride. The Shuttle enables you to confidently dominate terrain that other eMTBs can’t touch, and makes rallying the climbs as much fun as it is to descend. You’ll find yourself extending your rides and tackling routes you would not consider possible on a traditional mountain bike.
dw-link™ and Fox suspension for eMTB
dw-link™ suspension, combined with the Shimano pedal assist, is an ideal system for eMTB designs, allowing us to place pivot locations exactly where we needed them to produce the best suspension performance and to achieve the shortest chainstays (sub-437mm) on any eMTB. The dw-link’s™ patented anti-squat characteristics are perfectly tuned to match the combined power output of the rider and the Shimano pedal assist system, for no bobbing under power. The Shuttle utilizes an eMTB- specific version of our mid-travel linkage, with a wider and burlier version of our rear shock pivot cartridge bearing design found in our longer travel clevis designs (such as the Firebird and Phoenix), giving it incredible small bump compliance and the extra traction needed to truly take advantage of the pedal assist system when you need it most.
This 140mm travel dw-link™ eMTB features a Fox DPX 2 custom-tuned for the Shuttle with higher levels of compression support, and includes bearings and linkages specifically engineered for the increased speeds and additional torque of pedal assist.
To match the Shuttle’s rear suspension, we’ve paired it with the newest 160mm Fox 36 29er fork, giving you aggressive, balanced handling on every part of the mountain.
Innovative Battery Integration
The Shuttle incorporates Shimano’s most compact, powerful and lightest e-bike battery, mounted to a bottom-load, full carbon tray. When combined with automotive style gaskets and vibration damping materials, this innovative design enables us to create the most secure, compact, lightest, and strongest frame design possible. As an added bonus, this design enables easy accessibility and simple battery removal.
The Shuttle features externally accessible charging ports for easy charging without removing the battery, automotive quality gaskets and the Pivot Cable Port system for all cable and dropper routing, for a rattle free, incredibly quiet machine.
The Shuttle frame incorporates a full carbon skid plate and thick rubber down tube protection, for maximum impact resistance and durability.
All system controls and power modes are easily accessible from the handlebar actuated levers and Shimano‘s easy to read display. Settings are also easily customizable via Shimano‘s E-tube project smart phone app.
The Widest Range of Sizes in eMTB
Because of the compact design of the battery housing, the Shuttle is available in a complete range of five sizes, from S-XL, to fit riders from 162 to 193cm (5’4” to 6’3”+). This wide range of sizing options also gives riders the ability to choose the reach that best fits their ride style. For a more playful feel, size down. For point and shoot stability over the most technical terrain, choose the longer reach.
Small: 5’4″ – 5’7″
Medium: 5’7″ – 5’11”
Large: 5’11” – 6’2′
X-Large: 6’2″ +
Perfect eMTB builds from Pivot
Pivot complete bikes are more than the sum of their parts – every single component is selected to give you the best experience on the trail. In the case of the Shuttle, this means that every part has been carefully selected to provide the best combination of eMTB durability, ease of maintenance and light weight:
Wheels and Tires:
The Shuttle is spec’d with an eMTB specific DT Swiss wheelset and Maxxis tires with Silk-Shield Technology. The DT Swiss EB1550 wheelset is custom designed for Pivot to accommodate the incredible torque produced by pedal assist systems. It features a SuperBoost 157mm hub that makes for a 30% stiffer wheelset over standard Boost designs, 24t engagement, and an overall design that focuses on strength while achieving the lightest weight possible. Co-developed with Pivot, the Maxxis Silk-Shield casing is far stronger and much lighter than a traditional downhill casing, and offers a more supple ride feel, for the best on-trail handling.
We chose the Shimano Steps E8000 system due to its compact drive unit design, lightweight and perfectly tuned assist that allows the rider to ride their eMTB just as naturally as you ride your non-assist bike. With Shimano you can have confidence in owning the highest quality product with service options just about anywhere in the world.
Custom designed Phoenix Components work as a system to enhance cockpit comfort and control on every Pivot bike. To learn more about how these components enhance the quality of your ride, see here.
Pivot bikes feature WTB saddles that are specially made with the best, most durable, memory foam and feature a special hidden cutout for long ride comfort.
