First Look: Pivot Phoenix Carbon

Pivot's DH rig gets a host of updates

Pivot’s Phoenix Carbon DH rig has received a handful of updates. Most notably, it’s dropped 2/3 of a pound and gained mud clearance in the rear. The seat tube and head tube length is the same across all sizes, so riders can choose a frame based on how long–or short–they want the reach.
