Point

Introducing Pivot’s Frequent Flyer Plan

The Point was developed by Pivot engineers, in partnership with the steel experts at DMR, to bring a higher level of performance and strength to the party than previously seen in chromoly dirt jumpers. Beginning with the highest grade DMR chromoly steel, Pivot designed and tuned the geometry and feel to meet the requirements of our pro athletes. The Point features a roomy cockpit, combined with super short chainstays, ISCG 05 mounts, interchangeable dropout and a 1.5” tapered head tube make for a bike that provides go-big confidence in all situations, with a snappy liveliness and an incredibly high fun factor.

Engineer's Corner

Get everything you need to know about the bikename.

Designed with 100-120mm suspension forks in mind, works with forks up to 130mm

ISCG 05 mount for single ring guide.

Full length rear derailleur cable housing.

The Point only comes in one size, which will generally fit riders between 5’6” to 6’4”.

The Point uses a threaded 73mm shell that is compatible with just about every possible MTB crank in the market.

Variables in frame size, discrepancies in scale calibrations, and method of weighing (with or without pedals and such) all lead to inaccurate comparisons, so we choose not to publish our bike weights. Pivot bicycles are among the lightest available, but the weight is only one of many factors that make a great bicycle. Other aspects such as frame stiffness, strength, durability, and ride quality are just as important as weight to our engineers when designing our Hollow Core Carbon and aluminum frames. Instead of comparing grams online, we suggest you visit your local Pivot dealer and see our attention to detail, smart, high value spec, and class leading features. Bring a scale if you’d like, but take just one demo ride and you’ll feel why Pivot Cycles are the most well-rounded, highest performing bicycles on the market and in many cases, yes, it’s the lightest as well.

We supply the frame with standard 135mm vertical dropouts. Horizontal dropouts are available from Pivot if you want to run singlespeed. If you want to run a 12x142 thru axle you will need to order the dropouts from DMR (SwopOut system).

The Point frame uses a 27.2mm seatpost.

The Point frame uses a 30.0mm seatpost clamp, which is provided with the frame.

If you are determined, a 27.2mm dropper post will work on this frame.

No. The frame is not designed to accommodate a front derailleur and does not have cable stops.

Yes. The frame is equipped with ISCG-05 tabs, so most chain guides that are made for ISCG-05 tabs should work.

For the Pivot Point, we use an integrated style headset. The upper bearing measures 1-1/8" with 45°/45° ACB. The lower bearing measures 1-1/2" with 36°/45° ACB. The standard SHIS name is: TOP IS42 (45°), BOTTOM IS52/40.

The Point is designed to easily accept most 2.3 tires in the market. For wider tires, there are lots of options that will fit. However, we suggest you check the fit with your chosen rim and tire combination to make sure it has proper clearance. We have found that rim width, tire manufacture sizing call outs and/or tire size inconsistency can result in huge difference among both tire brands and individual tires.

The Point will clear either a 160mm or 180mm rotor.

You will need an IS to post mount adaptor. They are offered in both 160mm and 180mm versions.

The Point was designed for either a 100mm or 120mm fork. The maximum travel length that can be used on the Point is 130mm travel.
