Pivot presenta la nuova Shuttle: motore Shimano EP8, una batteria facilmente smontabile da 726wh, gruppo Shimamo XTR e Fox 38 Factory con escursione da 160mm. Al posteriore l’escursione rimane di 140mm ma con ammortizzatore più lungo e curva di progressione diversa. Peso compliessivo: 21 kg.
Il comunicato ufficiale: Pivot is proud to unveil the newly redesigned Shuttle. With its sleek integration of motor and battery, and Pivot’s proprietary carbon fiber construction, the Shuttle revolutionized electric assist mountain biking when it was introduced. Shimano’s new EP8 motor is a fitting complement to the Shuttle’s trail capabilities.
It’s lighter, quieter and more powerful than its award-winning predecessor, and is the perfect match for the Shuttle’s progressive geometry, super capable suspension and drop-dead good looks. The dw-link suspension and metric Fox DPX2 shock provides 140 mm of plush, controlled performance, matched with a stout, 160mm travel Fox 38 fork. Chassis, suspension, motor, and battery integrate together at the pinnacle of eMTB evolution.
”With the new Shuttle, we build on our vision of making an insanely capable all-mountain bike that cleanly incorporates electric-assist. With more aggressive geometry, a super-refined integrated design, and a big increase in suspension performance matched to a perfectly tuned dw-link design, the new Shuttle is an incredibly fun bike even without mentioning that it’s pedal assist. Add the superior performance of Shimano’s new EP8 system and the bike’s incredible range and you get a whole new level of eMTB experience,” says Chris Cocalis, Pivot’s founder and CEO.
With smarter assist ratio algorithms and fluid smooth power level transitions, the EP8 drive unit helps master even the most technical terrain, offering a seamless and natural assist to your pedal inputs, enabling the Shuttle to bring your riding to the next level.
The new drive unit is lighter, more compact, and more powerful than before, and combined with the sweet handling geometry and ultra-capable dw-link suspension, unobtrusively lets the Shuttle achieve unparalleled trail performance.
The 726 watt/hour battery demolishes old expectations about range, giving you the power take full advantage of that performance, to ride farther, explore deeper.
