    Summary

    Expirience with the Pivot Switchblade Team XTR

    Expirience with the Switchblade Team XTR 2022 The Switchblade is one of the most coveted enduro bikes on the market. The reason: A harmonious geometry and a first-class rear end guarantee riding fun even on rough terrain. Pivot is taking no risks when it comes to its bike handling. The moderate geometry data conveys a balanced handling. There are bikes with a more sporty, but also with more comfortable seating approach. The Pivot Switchblade Team XTR wants to combine the best of the two worlds with a moderate orientation. If you look at the frame as the heart of a bike, then Pivot has done everything right. The frame leaves a very presentable impression. The way to the summit is not one of the strengths of this bike. All in all, in the on moderate runs category, you will hardly find a better overall package from parts and geometry. A nice warranty promises sustainability. With 10 years warranty Pivot sets the bar high!
