N8tive working on Pivot

21. March 2017

Once upon a time. This is how most fairytales begin. But not so our story.

Since the very first meeting at the Eurobike in Friedrichshafen we all knew: N8tive and Pivot? It’s a match! A beer at night, another appointment the next morning and plans were made. We introduced all members of the na8tive team and spoke about our plans for 2017. They were consistent with what Pivot wants. One thing led to another and we are now going to surf the trails this season with Pivot Switchblades. Obviously we are crazy happy about that. To be perfectly prepared for the upcoming season the switchblades were modified with our beloved n8tive handlebars, stems, pedals and grips.

All set? Great weather? A trail right on you doorstep? – What are we waiting for?! Let’s go!

The team members Kai and Laura tested the new set-up on their hometrails this weekend and have been thrilled. Control, facility and smooth running on rough trails – no problem for the lightweight carbon switchblade by Pivot. Combined with the broad n8tive handlebar, torsion free enduro stems and bolted grips everything was under perfect control. On single trails oder enduro routes – in Flims the biking never stops. Just perfect for the n8tive Noax Pedal with out a pass-thru axle. More floor clearance for every terrain. Endless riding enjoyment. But see for yourself:

We are very happy to have found a partner in Pivot and can’t wait for the race season to begin.
