    LEVA-EU member, bicycle manufacturer Pivot Cycles (USA) introduces Andreas Knodel as its European Subsidiary leader

    Before entering the bicycle industry, managing director Andreas Knodel worked in management and personnel consulting for 18 years. Now, he leads Pivot Cycles’ European operations from its Korntal-Münchingen location. Knodel shares: “Mountain bikes play an important role in my life. It almost sounds like a cliché, but I turn my passion into my job. I rode a Pivot for the first time almost six years ago. A ‘switch blade’. [The brand’s] love for excellent driving performance and attention to detail impressed me. More bikes from the American brand followed and finally a bike trip to Moab, where I was able to get to know Chris Cocalis and his team personally. A friendship developed and when the opportunity arose to be part of this family, I jumped at it.”

  3. The New Pivot Shuttle Unveiled

    Comments Off on The New Pivot Shuttle Unveiled

    LEVA-EU member Pivot pushes electric performance into a whole new realm with class leading power, range, and big mountain capability. Built from the finest materials, incorporating a new Shimano EP8 motor, and boasting a massive 726 watt/hour battery, the Shuttle redefines trail riding.

    Pivot is proud to unveil the newly redesigned Shuttle. With its sleek integration of motor and battery, and Pivot’s proprietary carbon fiber construction, the Shuttle revolutionized electric assist mountain biking when it was introduced.

    Shimano’s new EP8 motor is a fitting complement to the Shuttle’s trail capabilities. It’s lighter, quieter and more powerful than its award-winning predecessor and is the perfect match for the Shuttle’s progressive geometry, super capable suspension and drop-dead good looks.

    The dw-link suspension and metric Fox DPX2 shock provides 140 mm of plush, controlled performance, matched with a stout, 160mm travel Fox 38 fork. Chassis, suspension, motor, and battery integrate together at the pinnacle of eMTB evolution.

    ”With the new Shuttle, we build on our vision of making an insanely capable all-mountain bike that cleanly incorporates electric-assist. With more aggressive geometry, a super-refined integrated design, and a big increase in suspension performance matched to a perfectly tuned dw-link design, the new Shuttle is an incredibly fun bike even without mentioning that it’s pedal assist. Add the superior performance of Shimano’s new EP8 system and the bike’s incredible range and you get a whole new level of eMTB experience,”

    says Chris Cocalis, Pivot’s founder and CEO.

    The new Shuttle will be available in Treeline Green with orange accents and is available in all sizes, at key Pivot dealers worldwide. For more information visit: https://store.pivotcycles.com/en/bike-shuttle-us-v2.
