Every gram counts when you’re pushing the pedals from start to finish and modern cross country racing demands high performance mountain bikes. While some may opt for full suspension in favor of comfort, it's tough to beat the efficiency of an ultra lightweight hardtail. The LES SL gives you a racers edge, with more of what you want in an XC bike and less of what you don't want or need. 

At an ~800 gram frame weight and full build weight of under 20 pounds, the Les SL is pounds lighter than the competition. Pivot’s proprietary Hollow Core Carbon Molding offers riders super light weight frames with stiffness and compliance. The LES SL features size specific layups and integration throughout––integrated headset and internal routing with the Pivot Cable Port System.

The LES SL is ultra efficient in design and application. Every single watt transforms into race winning performance. The LES SL geometry features a longer reach and slacker head tube angle for race oriented positioning. Dropper seatpost compatibility and compliance built into the frame design equates to versatility in your xc racing. Whether the course is smooth or technical, the LES SL responds with top notch speed and high performance. 

A FOX Stepcast 100mm fork is designed specifically for xc racers, offering a narrow, stepped design, for a lively and responsive suspension setup on all Les SL builds. The LES SL can accommodate up to 120mm fork for riders who desire a little bit more comfort when the trails become more featured. 

Less is more on a Pivot LES SL hardtail but you’ve got plenty of buildkit options to choose from––Carbon or Alloy frame; SRAM or Shimano drivetrain; a total of one dozen buildkit options.
