The Mach 5.5 Carbon builds on the legacy of our renowned Mach 5.7 Carbon as the quintessential trail bike. With 140mm of dw-link™ rear travel, it sticks to and claws up just about anything, with unparalleled pedaling efficiency. On descents, the Mach 5.5 Carbon’s incredible square edge bump performance and 160mm travel Fox 36 fork enables you to conquer terrain that makes other bikes cower. It’s a bike that inspires you to climb while looking forward to the descents and that begs you to push your limits while putting a smile on your face.
The Switchblade is spec’d with the Fox Float DPS shock with the new EVOL air sleeve, tuned specifically for the Switchblade’s dual personality. The new Float DPS features improved bump absorption and firm lockout with a new DPS damper with three on-the- fly lever adjustments – Open, Medium and Firm options cover all of your terrain choices. The EVOL air sleeve significantly reduces the force required to initiate travel for the ultimate in small bump compliance and better bottom-out resistance. When combined with the ultra-low friction Kashima coating, this design offers an incredibly plush feel in every setting. While dw-link® is inherently efficient on its own, the firm option is great for long climbs. These shock features are direct complements to dw-link® suspension tuning and patented position-sensitive anti-squat, giving riders even better traction on steep climbs and over rough trail.
To match the Switchblade’s rear suspension, we’ve paired it with the newest 150mm Fox 36 – the perfect fork to match any trail rider’s need for aggressive, balanced handling on every part of the mountain.
The Mach 5.5 Carbon’s well-balanced geometry makes it the ultimate trail bike weapon. We combined a long and low cockpit with a 66.5-degree head angle for high-speed stability and amazing downhill performance. The bike’s short (430mm) chainstays and relatively steep seat angle help it rail the tightest corners and absolutely crush the steepest climbs.
We’ve also evolved our mid-travel link design. By utilizing the same rear-shock pivot cartridge-bearing design found in our longer-travel models (such as the Firebird and Phoenix), we’ve given the Mach 5.5 Carbon the unmatched, small-bump compliance and traction that Pivot is known for—in a lighter weight and more compact design.
