Whether you plan to throw down in gravel events, the local crit series, or at the next cyclocross race, Pivot says its newly updated Vault do-it-all drop bar bike is a great choice.
“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.”
The 2017 Vault frameset includes a new full carbon, taper-steerer fork with an oversized crown. It also has increased tire clearance and Shimano’s new flat mount brake mount. 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.
The new Vault is available as a complete bike with a mixed surface build that features Shimano Ultegra drivetrain and brakes, and Stan’s Grail wheels for $3999. The Vault is also available as a frameset, enabling you to customize your build based on how you plan to use it most.
