TOO MUCH IS JUST RIGHT
Pivot’s hyper capable new Shuttle LT delivers more of everything you want.
Tempe, AZ – Race-ready, ultra-refined, and ambitious, the Shuttle LT inspires endless riding possibilities.
The Shuttle LT completes an e-bike trilogy from Pivot Cycles, one of the earliest U.S.-based adopters of high- end pedal assisted mountain bike technology. The Shuttle LT deserves a category of its own delivering an intoxicating combination of power, finesse, and travel. Equipped with Fox E-Tuned 38 170mm forks and 160 mm of rear travel, every Shuttle LT exceeds expectations on race day, or any day.
“When our Engineering team set out to grow the Shuttle family, we used the Firebird as inspiration for the new long travel Shuttle. The LT is not only an incredibly capable descender, but also a highly versatile all- arounder. This new bike empowers riders to explore up and down and maintains an extreme advantage in the most technical terrain. Our proprietary carbon molding, ride tuning, and dw-link suspension allowed us to build phenomenal performance characteristics into our long travel eMTB.” says Chris Cocalis, founder and CEO of Pivot. “You’ll instantly recognize the balanced and planted feel you expect from a Pivot, yet without giving up the ‘pop’ we’ve bred into all our EWS-inspired bikes. We really pulled out all the stops with the Shuttle LT. This bike has the heart for enduro racing and is still the bike you’ll want to ride every day.”
The range extending 756Wh battery – developed for Pivot with Shimano’s top battery partner – feeds a Shimano EP8 drive unit and, importantly, has been strategically lowered in the Shuttle LT’s downtube. Not only does the design ease battery removal, but also adjusts the center of mass to enhance handling, feel, and rider confidence. No detail was overlooked in the selection of XTR 4-piston brakes, massive 220mm front and 203mm rear rotors, and Maxxis 2.5” Assegai tires mounted on DT Swiss’ unrivaled eMTB specific HX1501 wheels. The riding possibilities are endless.
Pricing, Specifications, and Availability: The Shuttle LT will be available in Northern Lights and Bass Boat Tri- Tone, in sizes S through XL. It can be purchased in either Ride (Fox Performance 38 170mm E-Tuned fork and Float X shock) or Team (Fox Factory 38 170mm E-Tuned fork and Float X shock) builds; priced from £10,000 to £12,000 at key Pivot dealers worldwide. The Shuttle family includes the lightweight SL, the mid-travel AM, and the enduro-inspired LT.
