Pivot launches cockpit component line

TEMPE, Ariz. (BRAIN) — Pivot Cycles has launched the Phoenix Component System, which includes handlebars, stems, grips, seatposts, and saddles.

"These components work as a system to maximize steering accuracy, while providing just the right amount of shock absorption and vibration damping to help eliminate rider fatigue, especially on long descents and in endurance situations" said Chris Cocalis, Pivot's president. He added, "to make sure that every size rider benefits from this system, we offer a wide range of bar width and stem length options."

The stems and handlebars use the 35mm clamp diameter for stiffness, while the carbon layup of the rest of the handlebar is optimized for vibration reduction.

The Phoenix WTB PadLoc grip system includes a vibration-reducing pad at the outside of the grip. The Phoenix grip design includes ultra-soft durometer, dual compound material in a deep hexagon pattern that provides the comfort of a larger diameter grip with small grip control.

The comapny said the engineered carbon layers of the Phoenix Team Seatpost allow for about two times the flex in the fore-aft axis as is found in standard post designs for added comfort for endurance cross-country racers and hardtail riders.

Phoenix Team stems are 3-D forged out of 7050-T6 aluminum. The Enduro / Trail stem comes in 35, 45, 55, 65mm sizes and the XC / Trail stem is offered in 60, 75, 90, 100, 110mm sizes.

Phoenix Team Carbon handlebars are available in three widths - 740, 760, 800mm widths with 40mm of cut length on each end (up to 80mm total).

The company said its testing protocol goes beyond industry standards, including a series of six tests for the handlebar, stems and seatposts.

The new components join Pivot's existing line of customized WTB saddles – the Hightail, Vigo and Volt.
