Today, Pivot Cycles introduces the new Vault – a bike where massive tire clearance, pro-caliber power transfer, and ride-tuned frame compliance come together for the fastest thing to ever hit backcountry roads. Gravel, road, or cross, the all-new Vault checks all the boxes with clearance for 700x45c and 650bX47c tires, tight 420mm seatstays, compatibility with Stages and Shimano power meters, and an ultra-light race tuned Hollow Core Carbon frame. Progressive new school geometry excels on variable road surfaces, race courses, and any time a ride turns into an adventure. Tuned tube shapes and carbon layups tame the roughest roads and washboard for a stable and smooth ride mile after mile.
“When we asked our dealers what they wanted to see in the new Vault, half asked for a 27.2mm seatpost while the other half wanted dropper post compatibility,” says Pivot Cycles President and CEO, Chris Cocalis. “We not only give them both what they asked for, we did it with an innovative system that delivers extraordinary comfort with any setup. ISO FLEX allowed us to maintain pro level race stiffness and efficiency that makes this bike a gravel race weapon and a total blast to ride everywhere.”
Pivot’s innovative patent pending ISO FLEX system isolates the seatpost from the frame for the ultimate in rider comfort while maintaining race-level torsional frame stiffness. In minutes, you can swap insert sizes too. Choose 27.2mm with our tuned-flex carbon seat post design for maximum comfort or go 30.9mm for dropper post applications. The Vault’s ISO FLEX seat tube design brings comfort to unforgiving dropper seatposts – even on the roughest roads, you get to have your cake and eat it too.
The Pivot Vault is designed to take riders farther than they’ve ever dared push before, so we added top tube bag bosses to fuel the ride. Hidden fender mounts go unnoticed until they’re needed – then, the Vault morphs into a high-performance commuter or winter training bike. Not only is the front derailleur mount incredibly stiff for perfect 2x shifting, we also made it removable for 1x drivetrains, and its integrated cover virtually disappears with ultra-clean lines.
Pricing, Specifications, and Availability: The new Vault will be available in two color options—Slate Blue and Sandstorm. It is available as a frameset, and a complete bike in two configurations: The Vault Ultegra costs $5,199 USD while the Vault Force with eTap AXS retails at $6,699 USD. The Vault is available now, in all sizes, at key Pivot Dealers worldwide. For more information, visit https://www.pivotcycles.com/en/bike- vault-1
