Built for speed and a little bit of steeze on the trail we ride the Pivot Trail 429 Pro XT/XTR Live Valve Carbon Wheel Mountain Bike on all our backyard adventures. Fox Live Valve is tuned to ride like a roadie on the climbs and a dedicated downhill bike on the descents. For that in-between trail, we use Live Valve to efficiently and near effortlessly help us cruise along fun, fast, and flowy terrain. The Pivot Trail 429 gets carbon hoop treatment courtesy of Reynolds and rolls ultra-smooth and pedals responsively thanks to Industry Nine Hydra hubs. Geometry on this version of the 429 is dialed for a competent trail bike that relishes the descents as much as it pushes us up the climbs. A flip-chip in the rear lets us choose between 'slack' and 'slacker', so naturally, we're going for the slacker option. In this setting, the headtube drops to 66 all while keeping a relatively steep seat tube angle of 75. Combined with a middling wheelbase of 1188mm(size M) we're having fun no matter what direction the trail goes or how long the next descent is. Helping us out in the fun department is 'set and forget' suspension performance with help from FOX and their Live Valve tech. Live Valve keeps the suspension hyper-active, judging the terrain and making small adjustments as we ride with its electric brain system. LiveValve is hooked up to FOX Factory suspension front and rear, allowing for a plush ride that stays at peak performance for longer thanks to a Kashima coat. The XT/XTR drivetrain provides easy to use and hassle-free shifting using their class-leading hyperglide technology. Finishing off the build is a set of Reynolds carbon hoops, these strong wheels are dialed in for trail riding with offset widths. Running in a 30mm inner width upfront and 28mm in the rear, the wheelset allows for a larger contact patch with the front tire for grip and a small patch in the rear for better rolling resistance. With this version of the Trail 429 we can be confident we're rid...
