"Pretty sweet versatile bike, blasts up the mountain, and then very capable on the descent, corners extremely well."
--Patrick, The BackCountry Manager

"If you want to buy one bike that does everything, this is the bike for you; it jumps, it bumps, it pumps, it flows, it shows, that Pivot knows how it goes when it comes to bikes."
--Seth, The BackCountry Bike Mechanic





Optimized for the Entire Mountain
We tailored every detail of the Switchblade to deliver a bike ready to conquer the entire mountain. Progressive geometry broadens the performance envelope while retaining the versatility that made the original so good. Always with an eye on confidence-inspiring design, we shortened, straightened, and steepened the Switchblade’s seat tube to allow longer travel dropper posts.
Beyond All Mountain
The new Switchblade’s extraordinary versatility and category bending capability redefine performance across every type of trail. From bike park flow trails to raw backcountry routes, the Switchblade amplifies every rider's skills and excels on any trail.


  • Ultra-Light Hollow Core Carbon Frame.
  • 142mm of supple-yet-efficient dw-link™ suspension travel featuring a vertically mounted trunnion metric air shock.
  • Equipped with a 44mm offset 160mm-travel Fox 36 Grip2.
  • Flip Chip for on-trail geometry customization.
  • Featuring the easy to find UDH rear derailleur hanger for peace of mind when traveling.
  • Hassle free full internal routing with Pivot cable port system.
  • Compatible with both 29, 27.5+″ and 27.5″ rear/29″ front (mullet) wheel sizes without compromise thanks to the Flip chip’s adjustable geometry feature.
  • Custom tuned Fox Live Valve builds allow for layers of tuning to allow for a plusher than plush feel unmatched by any other suspension setup.
  • Large Water Bottle Clearance on all sizes.
  • Pivot Tool Dock system compatible with mounts under the top tube and integrated into the underside of the frame.



"The Pivot Switchblade is a pop machine, and it’s apparent from the very first pedal stroke. With DW-Link suspension, designed by the guru Dave Weagle himself, there’s no question as to where this indescribable amount of energy comes from, nor is there a question as to how to make the most of it. The Switchblade answers that itself by boosting off every jump and bump in sight."
