Developed in conjunction with Dave Weagle, Kyle Strait, and the Pivot/LEX team, the Phoenix is the top of the line downhill offering from Pivot Cycles. We?™ve seen the Pivot Phoenix being raced on the World Cup circuit for a few years now and it?™s popular amongst those who ride one. It uses the tried and true DW-link suspension system, which has a long and successful history in the racing scene. Personally, I watched as much Luke Strobel footage as I could find online to check his technique onboard the Phoenix before I actually rode it. Luke?™s got the body English well figured out for this bike and I took note.
