    Summary

    Expirience with the Pivot Switchblade Ride SLX/XT

    Pivot Switchblade Ride SLX/XT Review With 160 mm of travel on the fork, the Switchblade Ride is a bona fide enduro rig. The DW-Link rear suspension yields considerably less travel than the fork but compensates with top-notch performance. The moderate 65,2 degree head tube angle ensures a balanced handling. The balanced seating position is likely to suite the taste of the majority of bikers. Looking at only the shifting system of the rest of the bikes you have to say that other manufacturers in the price range under 8000 Eurouse higher quality components. We like: 10 years warranty on the frame! Pay attention when selecting your size: the Pivot Switchblade Ride sizing runs small.
