This version of the Pivot Mach 6 was discontinued in 2017.
The 2016 Pivot Mach 6 X01 build came up short in our two-month test to pit five of the best enduro bikes against each other. A tricky fit and narrow rims shook confidence levels and slowed speeds, holding the Mach 6 back to last place in our up and downhill timed trial courses. As a result, the crow black bike came in last with an overall score of 50, trailing the first place Yeti SB5.5c 2016 by 31 points. The other bikes work better, largely due to the Pivot's fit issues, comparatively heavy and sluggish feel, and some wheel and rear end flex, which made an otherwise solid Fox fork feel soft. This is the only bike that none of us would pick for race day. Its last-place finishes in both the uphill and downhill benchmark time trial tests don't help.
