The All New Switchblade

THE NEWLY REFRESHING MOJAVE COLOUR IS HERE please call to hear more information and check availability.

A mountain bike with extraordinary versatility and category bending capability that redefines performance across every type of trail. We took the progressive long, and low geometry of the original Switchblade and pushed it even further with a longer reach, slacker head angle and steeper seat angle. Always with an eye on confidence - inspiring design, we shortened and straightened the Switchblade’s seat tube to allow for longer travel Dropper Seatposts in a more compact overall frame design. The adjustable flip chip from our Firebird 29 adds geometry adjustability, enabling the Switchblade to be easily optimized for 29”, 27.5+ or 27.5”/29” reverse mullet setups without compromise. All of this versatility is packaged in a even lighter, Pivot Hollow Core Carbon frame with plenty of room for a large water bottle in all sizes.

New vertical shock layout design builds on dw-link’s legacy of class - leading performance, making it the most capable and adaptable Switchblade ever. A more aggressive rising rate makes 142mm of travel suppler off the top of the stroke, offers more support in the middle and gives it huck-to-flat bottoming control at the end. We worked closely with Fox to develop an all new piston and valve tune on its Float X that delivers new levels of sensitivity and traction. Coil Shock compatibility and full Fox Live Valve integration give the new Switchblade mtb unequalled suspension adaptability and performance.
