When Every Second Counts
In a sport where success is measured in half seconds, racers are looking for every possible advantage—and that’s exactly what the Pivot LES provides. The LES combines incredible efficiency with the smoothness and trail tuning that the world’s best athletes need to outlast and outpace the competition.
World Cup racers and XC enthusiasts seeking a hardtail option that excels on every kind of terrain love Pivot’s new-school racing geometry. A slightly slack head angle (69.3-deg when paired with a 100mm fork), low bottom bracket, tight wheelbase, and the improved rollover of its larger-diameter wheels give the LES every advantage while climbing, and make this hardtail far more capable while descending and cornering on technical trails. Specific frame features include the oversized box section downtube and bottom bracket area, tapered head tube, and meticulously engineered seat and chainstays. Combined, these features offer the best ride feel and significantly reduce athlete fatigue on even the longest courses.
Efficiency freaks will love the extra power you can lay down with ultra-stiff Boost wheels, and the extra room between hub flanges improves ride feel and durability, especially on 29-inch wheels. The Cable Port System means that whether you choose to go the traditional shifting route or opt for Shimano’s Di2 system, all your cables, housing, wires, and batteries are neatly tucked away for the ultimate in weather and impact resistance, no matter what setup you choose. Compatible with 29 x 2.3-inch or 27.5 x 2.8-inch tires, and with the ability to run 1x, 2x, or singlespeed drivetrains, the LES is a world class XC hardtail with no shortage of versatility.
