Summary

Expirience with the Pivot Switchblade Team XTR

Pivot Switchblade Team XTR Review With 160 mm of travel on the fork, the Switchblade Team 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 geometry is moderate and makes for a balanced handling. When sitting in the saddle, the posture is neither overly sporty, nor uber-comfortable. This should make the Pivot suite the taste of most bikers. With the Switchblade Team, the real fun starts at the peak of the mountain. Because in the downhill, the on moderate runs is better than the competitors in this price range. We like: 10 years warranty on the frame! Pay attention when selecting your size: the Pivot sizing runs small.
