CUSTOM DESIGNED CARBON FORK
For the best in steering precision and braking power, as well as the ability to utilize the greatest number of tire options, the Vault frameset features an all new Pivot designed, full carbon, taper-steerer fork with an oversized crown, greatly increased tire clearance and Shimano’s new flat mount brake mount. For light weight and handling accuracy, fork dropouts have been upgraded to a 12mm thru axle design. The new fork clears 700C tires up to 48C.
BB386EVO BOTTOM BRACKET
“As stiffness is directly tied to cross-sectional size it’s no surprise that… BB386 EVO has the most to offer, with both the added shell width and diameter that many frame-makers yearn for.” -Bike Radar The Pivot Vault incorporates a BB386EVO bottom bracket system. This maximum-size, maximum-stiffness design standard was created by Pivot’s own Chris Cocalis and is featured in hundreds of bicycles and cranksets throughout the industry. Advantages include increased torsional rigidity, higher frame strength and better power transfer via an oversized 30mm diameter spindle and bigger bottom bracket shell cross section. This large surface area also contributes to ideal chainstay/bottom bracket integration and tire clearance – ideal for foul weather applications.
INTERNAL CABLE ROUTING AND ELECTRONIC COMPATIBILITY
The Vault features beautifully integrated internal shifter routing that easily adapts to both new electronic and traditional mechanical shifting systems. Large, easy to access ports are mechanic friendly.
