Pivot Elevates All-Terrain Riding with New E-Vault Set to Electrify Performance
February 16, 2021
Tempe, AZ – Feb. 16, 2021 – Developed by one of most premium bike companies in the world, Pivot Cycles®, the new E-Vault is a bold and sophisticated approach to electric-assist urban and gravel cycling that bolsters human capability and performance. Expanding possibilities and exploring limits, its refined fusion of technology, engineering, and design delivers a tailormade ride feel and an endlessly playful experience for any level of rider — uneven city streets, primitive gravel roads, rocky pavements or hardpacked singletrack, the new E-Vault is at home on a huge variety of terrain.
Unlike other eBikes, the E-Vault delivers the epitome of a custom ride experience thanks to Pivot’s Ride Tune design philosophy, proprietary carbon-layups and unique construction, hollow-core internal molding technology, fully integrated Fazua Drive System that disengages completely so you can pedal without resistance, and all topped-off with wireless shifting and data connectivity for the most premium in ride experiences through and through.
“This bike is a game-changer,” says Chris Cocalis, Pivot’s founder and CEO. “This synthesis of muscle and motor really does introduce limitless possibilities. With the stealth incorporation of a motor and battery into what is already an incredibly versatile platform, the E-Vault brings a whole new level of fun and adventure to pavement and gravel riding and allows more riders, of any and all experience levels, to up the fun factor as well as expand the range and the terrain that they currently enjoy.”
For a perfectly natural ride feel that simultaneously maximizes fun, the German-engineered Fazua Evation Drive System allows cyclists to actually ride the E-Vault with no electric assistance at all (like a “normal” bike) should they want to— without a weight or resistance penalty that most other electric-assisted bikes are associated with when run without power on. This allows riders to power-up their riding when needed, yet still enjoy responsive, lively performance when pedaling by muscle alone. The E-Vault’s sophisticated wireless features make the E-Vault one of the most customizable and intuitive ride on the market, enhancing rider customization and data connectivity. Riders can customize their electric shifting experience, power output, integrate all their personal, fitness and bike data, allowing riders to extract more performance from their bike than ever allowed before.
Featuring a motor that can be adjusted on-the-fly to three different levels of assist ranging from 100 and 250 watts and a powerful 252 watt-hour battery fuels ample range, the E-Vault can provide a gentle tailwind at the end of a long ride or it can be the secret key to a killer sprint. Using the responsive touch interface, riders can intuitively switch between the assistance levels without a noticeable delay, as well as check LED color-coded battery levels with a quick glance to prevent risk of distraction while riding.
Born from the Pivot commitment to pushing limits and setting new industry standards, the E-Vault delivers custom-tuned carbon layups for enhanced Ride Tuning, ISO Flex technology to keep your body positioning optimized while riding, dual-dropped chainstays with ample clearance to put even the widest winter tires on, tight seatstays and progressive modern geometry for precision handling on any path. Evolved from the acclaimed multi-surface Vault (non-electric), the new E-Vault is a lightweight, responsive, nimble handling, carbon fiber dropbar machine that’s equally at home maneuvering city streets as it is commanding gravel missions in the backwoods of nowhere.
Pricing, Specifications, and Availability: The new E-Vault will be available in two color options, Glacial Green Metallic, and Stealth. E-Vault is available as a complete bike with GRX Di2 build configuration priced at $9,999 USD MSRP. The E-Vault is available now, in all sizes, at key Pivot dealers worldwide.
