One more LES.

Now you can have that big wheel performance in an even more nimble package. The LES 27.5’s compact frame design takes our affinity for lightweight performance to a whole new level while opening up the big wheel category to a much wider range of riders. Some have described the new LES 27.5 as almost BMX like due to its next generation XC geometry that can dissect the tightest race courses with scalpel like precision while handling technical descents, rollers, berms and jumps like no XC hard-tail ever made. The magic combination of Pivot’s ultra lightweight ride tuned composite chassis, 27.5” wheels, progressive geometry, and ultra-short 16.77”(42.6mm) chainstays makes for a bike that is as equally comfortable taking the XC or Endurance race win as it is shredding jump filled singletrack.

For smaller riders, the LES 27.5 is a revelation. With the small and X-small frame size optimized for shorter riders, there is a LES model to properly fi t every size rider with bigger wheels. It’s an added bonus that the more compact frame design of the LES 27.5 enables riders to build sub 20lb race bikes as well. Now you can own, ride and race the most highly optimized hardtail ever created with geometry, stand over clearance, weight, and ride tuning perfected for the smaller rider. The LES 27.5 is a truly ground breaking design that we are excited to bring to a whole new legion of Pivot riders.

LES 27.5 Features

Pivot’s exclusive hollow box, high-compression internal mandrel technology allows for greater compaction and smoother internal walls resulting in a lighter, stronger, highly optimized, ride tuned frame design. This technology allows the frame extremely lightweight while also having a really balanced feel with a great combination of stiffness and ride quality.
Full internal shift cable routing with under bottom bracket access port design for hassle free installation: The LES 27.5” features well thought out internal cable routing that protects the cables from contamination while also being very user serviceable and easy to route, which is something that cannot be said for most internal routed designs.
Chainstay length and tire clearance: The LES features extremely short 16.77” chainstays. This matches the shortest 26” chainstay lengths out there so riders have a tight handling, responsive bike along with the benefits of 27.5” wheels.
Small and X-Small frame sizes bring big wheels with optimized fit, handling, and lighter weight to smaller riders while offering the maneuverability and excitement provided by the 27.5” wheels to riders of all sizes.
