PIVOT shut­tle

Mountain Biking UK - - 2018'S MOST WANTED -

What­ever you think of e-bikes, there’s no deny­ing that Pivot’s Shut­tle is a real looker. It’s built around Shi­mano’s ac­claimed STePS E8000 mo­tor and boasts 140mm of DW-Link rear travel. Pic­tured here with 650b+ tyres, it’ll ac­cept 29in wheels too. The neatly-in­te­grated bat­tery is ac­cessed from the un­der­side of the mas­sive down tube. But what we’re most ex­cited about is the ge­om­e­try. Short – for an e-MTB – chain­stays (437mm) and a de­cent reach (465mm on the large) should sit the rider in a good po­si­tion, while the 65.8-de­gree head an­gle and 348mm BB will pro­vide sta­bil­ity when speeds pick up. At £8,999, it’s cer­tainly not cheap though. www.up­grade­bikes.co.uk
