8. Pivot Switchblade

Pivot released the Switchblade less than a year and a half ago, and it’s already a favorite among Singletracks readers. Billed as an aggressive trail/enduro bike, the Pivot Switchblade features 135mm of DW-link rear suspension and 150mm of front suspension, though the bike is designed for up to 160mm of travel up front. The Switchblade can run 29er wheels with up to 2.5″ tires or 27.5″ wheels with 3.25″ tires.

Pivot boasts that the chainstays on the Switchblade are shorter than other bikes in its category, making the bike as nimble as possible. Pivot balances the short chainstays with “long and low” geometry for a bike that’s also stable at high speeds. The Switchblade is offered in carbon only, with prices starting just north of $5,000 for a complete build.
