2017 Pivot Firebird X01 Eagle Complete Mountain Bike


Drawing inspiration from Pivot’s DH monster, the Phoenix, the 2017 Firebird X01 Eagle Complete Mountain Bike rises from the ashes of its 26in predecessor to make a grand entrance as a long, low, big-travel enduro beast that revels in the climbs almost as much as it cherishes fast, rowdy descents. SRAM’s groundbreaking one-by 12-speed X01 Eagle adds to that versatility with a massive, 50t bailout cog to get through the really steep stuff, while 6.7in of responsive DW Link suspension and Fox Factory front travel ensure you’ll be able to shred anything nature puts in your way.

The Firebird’s geometry is enduro-bred through and through with a slack 65-degree head tube angle that keeps the center of gravity nice and low for confident speed down steep terrain. The double wishbone rear triangle is clearly carrying some downhill DNA, boasting short, snappy 16.95in chainstays that give this frame a responsiveness not always found in bikes with similar front-end geometry. Pivot continues the oversized trend in the rear axle with the Boost 148mm standard, ushering the Firebird into the modern era of enduro, where tech seems to always be straddling the lines between trail riding and gravity. The cumulative effect of these changes is an increase in rear triangle stiffness that lets the Firebird climb like a bike with much shorter travel.

The DW-Link suspension design controlling the Firebird’s travel also does its part to produce a secure climbing hold on rocky trails. Its anti-squat tendencies maintain a firm pedaling platform while cleaning terrain-riddled cruxes or picking lines with abandon across trail furniture. That responsiveness is matched on the opposite end of travel with a square-edge capacity that feels virtually bottomless, so time saved on the climbs isn’t lost because of overly cautious descending.

Pivot’s hollow-core internal molding process returns unchanged for uniform, controlled wall thicknesses and material distribution. This process virtually eliminates inconsistencies and resin pooling, increasing structural integrity while targeting areas for weight loss. The frame’s slacked-out geometry and stubby, 16.95in chainstays mean it’s slack enough to challenge lines across enduro rock gardens but nimble enough to pick its way through eight-inch terrain—all while sticking climbs and roosting berms with an eagerness that begs to be pushed to the ragged edge of control.
