The Firebird is both an enduro bike that devours blazing descents and a technical climber that gains elevation astonishingly well. For enduro racers, the tough and light Firebird’s peerless climbing traction, descending capability, and instant acceleration make it the perfect choice for the steep, punishing courses of the Enduro World Series.

Long days both up and down the mountain require a strong chassis that is light enough to make climbing fun. With that in mind, Pivot designed the Firebird around a bomber—yet ultra-light—full carbon frame featuring leading-edge carbon fiber materials and Pivot's proprietary molding technology. It features long and low geometry for a confident, stable stance, and ultra-short chainstays that make easy work of the tightest trails. For park riders, the Firebird has that nimble, snappy feel that encourages bold line choices yet allows you to stay in complete control at World Cup speeds. Equipped with a burly Fox 36 Factory 170mm-travel fork, this bike makes short work of technical downhill sections, while the dw-link maintains pedaling efficiency when climbing. The Firebird features the Pivot Cable Port system, which offers easy, clean internal routing of shifters, brakes, and droppers and features large ports for quick and easy routing and service. Housing clamps at entry and exit points keep all your lines totally secure and quiet. Each Firebird is spec'd with a suite of carefully chosen high-quality and durable components, including wide bars and aggressive Maxxis Minion DH tires. Designed with high-performance, rugged riding in mind, the Firebird is the no-compromise, Holy Grail of long-travel mountain bikes.
