by 1

A burlier build, bigger fork and new colours turn the trail-ready Pivot 429 into the big-hitting Pivot Trail 429 Enduro Build.

Pivot has taken the popular 429 trail bike and given it an enduro makeover so that it can take on bigger trails, larger drops and hit higher speeds. Don’t take our word for it though, watch Bernard Kerr shredding the new build in the video below.

To give the Enduro build of the 429 Trail a more gravity focussed feel, Pivot has built the 29er up with a 140mm travel Fox 36 GRIP2 fork, Fox Factory DPX2 rear shock with custom tune and a Kashima coating Fox Transfer post.

The Enduro version also features a Shimano XT chainset, Reynolds carbon Enduro wheels and no-nonsense Maxxis DHRII front and rear tyres.
