“Dropbar bikes are evolving as fast as are mountain bikes,” said Pivot Cycles front man Chris Cocalis. “In the same way that our really great trail bikes take MTB riders all over the mountain, we believe that the Vault is the only bike that most road riders really need. We are excited to dispel myths about what makes a great cyclocross, road racing or gravel bike by offering one truly exceptional machine that excels in every field.”

For light weight and handling accuracy, the fork dropouts have been upgraded to a 12mm thru axle design. The new fork clears 700C tires up to 48mm.
