Crazy Fast Meets Ridiculously Capable
The new Trail 429 is brilliant just about everywhere. It accelerates and climbs like a cross-country bike yet more than holds its own on tough terrain. It is even more capable on technical terrain than its predecessor yet doesn’t sacrifice a thing in the quick and nimble departments. Effortless handling, incredible power transfer and blazing acceleration are what set the Trail 429 apart from so many other trail bikes.
The best trail bikes are neither whippy nor overbuilt. They are, in a word, balanced. We sweat the details—painstakingly developing the precise mix of resins, composite fibers, lay-orientation and frame shaping to create a chassis with the perfect blend of strength and stiffness.
Equipped with Super Boost Plus rear spacing. Super Boost adds strength and stiffness to the wheels and chassis (without also adding weight), but Super Boost Plus also enables us to give the Trail 429 a short rear center for nimble handling while providing outstanding tire clearance for both 29 and 27.5+ wheel and tire combinations.
We’ve paired that class-leading dw-link™ suspension with custom-tuned Fox Float DPS (Dual Piston System) and DPX2 shocks that give the Trail 429 120 millimeters of smooth and controlled rear suspension. The metric-sized Fox DPS shock features an extremely positive “firm” position that makes easy work of long fire-road climbs, while the DPX2 shock option offers unrivaled, fade-free performance on the longest, technical descents. To match the Mach 429 Trail’s deep-feeling rear suspension, we’ve equipped each model with a 130mm Fox 34 suspension fork.
The Trail 429 is offered in a wide range of sizes that fit riders from 4’11” to 6’7”. What’s more, our rider size-specific geometry creates a balanced fit and adjusted geometry that gives you optimal wheelbase length and handling.
Our smaller-sized frames are built with shorter head tubes that create more stand-over height, which places riders in a centered, confident position with tons of clearance over the top tube. Balanced fit and feel—it’s why riders of every size can descend and corner on a Pivot with the highest confidence and speed.
