When Every Second Counts In a sport where success is measured in half seconds, racers are looking for every possible advantage …and that’s exactly what the Pivot LES provides. The LES combines incredible efficiency with the smoothness and trail tuning that the world’s best athletes need to outlast and outpace the competition.
Pivot’s cross-country designs are the choice of top XC, short track and endurance racers around the world. Rose Grant, (Stan’s/Pivot Racing, 2x US National Marathon Champion), Mike Hall (2014, 2016 Tour Divide Winner and all-time record holder), Taylor Lideen (24-Hours in the Old Pueblo solo winner, NUE Series race winner) and Jason English (World Solo 24-Hour Champion) all choose Pivot’s LES. We are proud to support our athletes on the international stage, from Rio to the World Cup to Endurance events around the globe.
BRILLIANT IN BOTH WHEEL SIZES
The LES becomes a one-bike quiver with the race-light version of our patented Swinger II dropout system. This clever bit of Pivot Cycles engineering enables you to run both 29” and 27.5+ wheelsizes, and easily switch between singlespeed and geared drivetrains—all while maintaining ideal chainstay length and geometry.
LIGHT, FAST…AND READY TO PODIUM
We shaved more than 50 grams from the original LES frame—a frame that was already a true featherweight. Using leading-edge, carbon fiber and our proprietary hollow core, internal–mandrel process, our engineers created a frame that offers racers a best-in-class hardtail, tuned for the drive to the finish line. The LES features an oversized, box-section downtube and bottom bracket area, stiffness enhancing Boost 110 and 148 front and rear spacing, as well as meticulously engineered seat and chainstays. Out on the course, those features add up to amazing power transfer and a surprisingly forgiving ride quality that staves off fatigue and saves you energy on even the longest courses.
WIDE RANGE OF FORK OPTIONS
The LES is compatible with 100 to 130mm forks, giving you a wide range of options when it comes to dialing in the bike to your own riding style. Choose a shorter travel fork and a 29” wheel for F1 speeds. When the course calls for fun, 120mm of travel combined with 27.5+ tires is a winning combination.
ELECTRIC OR CABLE—IT’S YOUR CHOICE
Whether you choose to go the traditional cable-shifting route or opt for Shimano’s game-changing electronic system, the LES has you covered. Thanks to our innovative Pivot Cable Port System, all of your cables, housing, wires and batteries are neatly tucked away inside the frame for the ultimate in weather and impact resistance, no matter what set up you choose, now or in the future.
