Pivot Cycles M4X DJ/MtnX

5/5 (1 Reviews)

Product Description

Our all-new M4X has already been ridden to dual slalom podium finishes as well as Best Trick at the Claymore Challenge by Kyle Strait, proving that it’s got more than what it takes... it’s a Pivot! With 4” of rear dw-link tuned suspension, it’s designed to eat up bumps, rail turns at speed and pedal with ultimate efficiency.

The M4X is perfect for dirt jumping, slalom racing, or hitting the terrain park. The 142x12 rear end keeps things tight and stiff, making sure your power goes to the rear wheel. If you’re looking to expand your definition of “fun”, then the M4X is the bike you’ve been searching for.

  • Tapered headtube
  • 30.9mm seat post size
  • 142mm x 12mm through axle

Strengths:    - The suspension/geometry for this bike is dialed for its purpose.
- It's light, but strong.
- It is a blast to ride both for trail and jumping.
- Pivot customer service is next to none.

Weaknesses:    - If you want to use it for both trail riding and jumping you may want to consider having two seatposts cut to the correct lengths for each (i.e short and longer) or get a dropper post and use with a QR seatpost clamp.
- More expensive than similar use frames.

Bottom Line:   
This bike is more expensive than the other offerings like it, but the dialed suspension/geometry and light weight make it worth it for me. Also, this bike is obviously made for jumping etc., but if you want a short travel trail bike that is quick handling and that can handle the fun stuff, but is not all stretched out like an XC race bike, this is one you should consider.

OK, i realize that some of the ideas i am presenting here appear to be self-defeating, but... i have been considering how i use my M4X for trail mostly these days, and by trail i do not mean machine cut, buff goodness, but naturally rooty and rocky, etc. That said, i tend to stick with less root ...

M4X in the house!

and it is sweet. Pumps rails and flies like a hardtail only without the back ache :thumbsup: I do need some help with the build however; the only problem I have is a slap happy drivetrain. I think its due to the sram x9 derailleur and maybe my chain is too long. This drivetrain is off another b ... Read More »

M4X as a trail bike

OK, so i have never even been on a DS course and i am really just learning DJs (which i am really enjoying – even though the next oldest riders are typically less than ½ my age)… i got the M4X because i wanted a “flickable”, jumpable, shorter travel trail bike without the traditional XC geometry. ...

Pivot M4X dual slalom as an AM bike?

I really want to demo this bike but it will be a while before one is near me. I realize this bike is intended for dual slalom and slopestyle type stuff, where the terrain is relatively smooth, with the suspension only designed to take the sting out of the landings, while being very firm otherwise. ...
