Product Description

 

NEXT GENERATION ALUMINUM

Working with carbon actually changed how we built aluminium bikes. We realized that we needed to develop entirely new aluminium frame building techniques if we wanted to achieve the same level of advanced tube shaping and ride quality we’d created with carbon. So that’s what we did. This is the next generation of aluminium. Our state-of-the-art hydroforming methods allow us to achieve extremely precise wall thicknesses and complex, multi-axis tube shaping. And, yes, while that all sounds a bit geeky, those advances absolutely improve strength, stiffness and your ability to always pick a line and stick it. In fact, our aluminium frames offer nearly the same strength and stiffness as our carbon frames, with only a small increase in overall weight. How small? Like 5/8-of-a-pound small. What’s more, the Mach 6 Aluminium utilizes the same ultra-stiff clevis and linkage, and large, suspension specific, EnduroMax bearings as its carbon brother. The end result? Best-in-class power transfer and handling.

SUSPENSION PERFECTED

The Mach 6 Aluminium features Dave Weagle’s acclaimed dw-link® suspension, dialled for long-travel applications. The dw-link®’s famed anti-squat delivers non-stop traction, while the variable wheel travel path provides unmatched square-edge bump absorption and control on technical descents. The responsiveness and bottomless feel of the Mach 6 Aluminium is matched only by its exceptionally efficient climbing for faster, easier ascents – getting you to the next descent before everyone else. We spec’d the Mach 6 Aluminium with a Fox Float DPS shock tuned specifically for the Mach 6. The new Float DPS features improved bump absorption and three on-the-fly lever adjustments – Open, Medium and Firm—to cover anything the trail throws your way. The shock’s EVOL air sleeve also significantly reduces the amount of force required to initiate travel, which results in the ultimate small bump compliance and better bottom-out resistance.  Up front, the Mach 6 Aluminium is spearheaded by the latest 160mm FOX 36 fork, now featuring an EVOL air spring and updated uppers for unparalleled small bump sensitivity. It’s the perfect fork for aggressive riding.

LONG AND LOW GEOMETRY

The new Mach 6 Aluminium incorporates the same progressive measurements as the new Mach 6 Carbon. With a slacker 65.75-degree head angle, steeper 74-degree seat angle, and Pivot’s long-travel, downhill-influenced linkage, the Mach 6 Aluminium offers ultra-stable, high-speed handling… and the ability to make short work of wicked, black diamond descents.

When climbing, the newly-steepened seat angle and extended cockpit of the Mach 6 Aluminium increase traction and keep the bike balanced and centered on the most technical climbs, enabling you to conquer obstacles you never thought could be cleaned.

Though we went long and low on the Mach 6 Aluminium, smaller riders still fit the bike easily. That’s because our Medium, Large and X-Large see significant increases in top tube length, while our Small and X-Small models remain compact, in keeping with our rider-size-specific design philosophy. What’s more, smaller riders still reap the climbing advantages of the steeper seat angle and the capable descending traits that come courtesy of the slacker head angle.
