REVOLUTIONARY MTB EVOLUTION. Pivot’s Shuttle delivers the eMTB experience like no other. The Shuttle looks a lot like our other Trail and Enduro models because it is – it has the same type of progressive geometry, ultra-capable suspension, and a state-of-the-art lightweight carbon-fibre chassis that magically makes you a better rider in the most demanding terrain. Shimano’s STEPS eMTB system amplifies your capabilities, enabling you to ride harder, ride further, and explore previously unthinkable routes. The Shuttle is everything that’s great about mountain biking – only now, you get to experience more of it. Way more.
Shimano’s mountain bike specific electric assist 250-watt drive unit system silently doubles the average rider’s output, so you ride harder, longer and on trails that previously seemed un-rideable. The Shuttle is so awesome you can even ride with it turned off and guess what? It still shreds. Hard. Just like our class-leading trail and enduro models. That’s because it’s essentially a rowdier version of our singletrack-loving Mach 5.5 trail bike with a whole lot of Firebird DNA mixed in. Now, turn on the Shuttle on and what do you get? You get the same awesome things—with the ability to ride a whole lot further. Epic rides get more epic. Heinous climbs stop being heinous. In a word, the Shuttle is rad. And a little extra battery power is icing on the cake.
The same fork specs that make our enduro race models shred so hard gives the Shuttle next level feel and capability on the trail. This 44mm offset, 160mm travel Fox 36 fork adds high-speed stability, cornering ability, and overall performance on the most technical terrain. Go ahead - throw the longest, toughest descent at the Shuttle. You’ll experience nothing but fade-free performance and control thanks to the custom tuned Fox Float DPX2 shock’s added oil capacity and twin tube internal architecture. Add in the characteristics of Dave Weagle’s dw-link suspension, and you get best in class pedaling performance and traction – important traits when boosting up technical trail features. And of course, it absolutely sends it downhill giving its 140mm of wheel travel traction, support, and control any time the ride goes full enduro. And trust us… they will.
Shimano’s STEPS eMTB components deliver class-leading power, tunability, feel, and integration. Shimano’s STEPS systems provide a smooth, natural-feeling assist to your own pedal power. No awkward power lags. No annoying resistance in the drivetrain. We mount the compact, lightweight and powerful e-bike battery to a bottom-load full carbon tray of our own design. This carbon tray is a structural component enabling us to create the strongest and lightest frame possible. The Shuttle is easy to operate. Intuitive Shimano controls with a new ergonomic handlebar remote switch make fine-tuning your power output on the fly simple and seamless. Likewise, the Shuttle features externally-accessible charging ports for quick and effortless charging of your battery.
Once you experience the Shuttle’s sub 45 pound weight, you quickly realize that lighter is better, way better. Every time you slow down, change direction, or get a little sendy and leave the ground – the fun part of riding – a Shuttle behaves just like a regular non-assisted bike. The lightweight Shuttle utilizes its high power-to-weight ratio to make accelerating and climbing faster (and easier). You know, the other parts of riding that make mountain biking so dynamic and incredibly fun.
The Shuttle is long and slack up front, short and snappy out back. We kept the center of gravity low and gave the Shuttle an even burlier version of the rear shock linkage featured on our long-travel bikes. Finally, we maximized frame and wheel stiffness with Super Boost Plus 157mm spacing. The end result? The Shuttle manages to be surprisingly nimble in tight conditions, is supremely confident on fast, chunky descents, and can scale ridiculously steep climbs with surefooted calm.
