Pivot Cycles is billing its new Vault as a do-all cyclocross racer, gravel grinder and road bike. Pivot lowered the bottom bracket, shortened the chainstays and increased tire clearance and still created a frame shape comfortable for shouldering the thing if you’re the type to hop over barriers.
The frameset comes with flat-mount disc brakes (140-160 mm rotors), thru axles, internal cable routing, electronic shifting capabilities, a BB386EVO bottom bracket (with oversized 30 mm diameter spindle) and two bottle cage mounts.
The Vault comes in sizes XS through L for riders between 5’3” and 6’3”. One build kit is offered at $4,000 and includes Shimano Ultegra 2×11, Shimano CX 505 hydraulic disc brakes, Stans Grail wheels and Maxxis Mud Wrestler 700×33 tires.
