In the mountain bike world, Pivot enjoys an exclusive reputation. The Shuttle SL Ride is the first light E-MTB of the Americans and should underpin the excellent reputation of the brand also with motorised bikes.
Even steep ramps are surprisingly easy to climb with the Fazua motor. With its boost function, which provides 450 watts of support for a short period of time, the Fazua Ride 60 reduces the gap between light and classic full-power motors. At the moment, hardly any other light motor offers such a good combination of natural support, dynamic power delivery and capability. The average range can become a problem especially for long mountain bike rides. The battery is securely attached to the down tube and cannot be removed for charging or storage.

At a glance

The most importanten ratings of the Pivot Shuttle SL Ride SLX/XT in comparison to the competitor bikes of following categorie: (9000) .

Even nasty descents get smoothened by the good Fox chassis. Bad brakes reduce the riding pleasure. Fortunately, this is not the case with the Shuttle SL Ride. With their four pistons the Shimano brake brakes good. The average shifting components and accessories leave some tuning potential open. For most e-bikers, this should be an acceptable point. When it comes to the geometry, Pivot does not go completely crazy. The head tube angle and reach values were chosen with care. The result: A balanced riding behaviour with a good combination of playfulness and straight-line stability. The low bottom bracket height will likely be a sticking point for trail riders, as it negatively affects handling. Short chainstays and make the front end light in steep climbs. To keep the front wheel on the ground, you need to consciously lean forward. Oh boy, with the geometry you have to be ready to make compromises from our perspective. The most important measurements and angles fall slightly out of the grid of good bikes.

Conclusion


Expirience with the Pivot Shuttle SL Ride SLX/XT

For tours, the Shuttle SL Ride with a very good handling, a good chassis and a good brake system is well equipped. Only with an average motor and a middle ground groupset you have to look away. With 10 years of warranty, nothing stands in the way of a long-term relationship.
