Modelled on the brand's EWS-winning Firebird bike the Pivot Cycles Shuttle LT 29 Team XTR is designed to be a finessed capable descender with enough travel to cushion you over rough tracks with the bonus of a bit of extra pop on the ascent.
A Shimano EP8 drive unit fed by a powerful 756Wh battery offers three power-assist modes to give you a boost over the uphill stretches so you can save all your energy for practicing the downhill portion again and again to refine your performance.
The drive unit is positioned between the cranks with the battery carefully integrated into the downtube so that the centre of gravity is lowered to give you better handling and an outstanding ride feel maximising your confidence and helping you to perform at your best. It offers 85Nm of torque and 500W of maximum power with three ride levels to speed your ascent while dw-linkTM suspension helps to counteract the effects of even the roughest surface.
The massive 160 mm of rear travel with dual piston damper and pedal-friendly shock absorption is paired with 170mm of front travel courtesy of a specialist corrosion resistant Kashima-coated Fox Factory E-MTB 38 GRIP2 Fork. The latter delivers the stiffness strength support and tunability all enduro riders look for.
The high end incredibly tough but smooth riding aluminium 29" DT Swiss Hybrid HX1501 wheelset with Ratchet LN Technology and wide high grip Maxxis Assegai tyres will help you to corner efficiently hold the trail and brake with ease. The strength of these superior load-bearing wheels is reinforced by Super Boost Plus spacing which offers 30% greater stiffness than Boost spacing and will ensure they'll be able to stand up to any shocks and rattles along your route.
Meanwhile the quality Shimano XTR M9100 shifter will work seamlessly with the quick-shifting Shimano XT M8100 cassette and the secure precise acting rear derailleur to offer chain stability and easy resistance free shifting. You'll therefore be able to climb comfortably and pedal with minimum effort as the trail surface and angle changes.
The light yet hardy corrosion resistant Fox Transfer Factory Series seatpost will allow you to make tool-free adjustments to your seat height and stability on the fly not to mention easily service it while the Phoenix Pro E-Bike saddle is sturdy enough to neutralise chatter while you're running at speed over uneven ground. Then when it's time to slow up you can count on the rigid highly sensitive mono-body Shimano XTR M9120 4-piston disc brakes to act fast and keep you in control.
Finally the battery can be charged in situ without any need to remove it and should take under three and a half hours to charge. How far that charge will take you will depend on the level of assistance you use your own weight and the layout of the terrain you decide to tackle. Expect there to be charge remaining after a three to four hour ride though.
Its aggressive geometry sturdy yet light build and the extra 'pop' offered by the drive unit ensures that the Shuttle LT 29 Team XTR will be easy to handle and great fun to ride whether you're heading uphill or downhill. Offering an advantage on the most technical terrain and with flip chip technology to ensure a perfect fit for all cyclists the Shuttle LT 29 Team XTR will delight enduro racers who want to save their energy to do 'one last run' that will give them an edge come competition day.
