There’s a lot of excitement around this project at Pivot. The Vault features all the technology of our Pivot LES model to create the ultimate cross and gravel crushing design. It features new school cyclocross geometry with a lower bottom bracket height, slightly shorter chain stays and an overall fit and finish that will make a Pivot fan out of even the most diehard traditional cross bike fans. The Vault has it all! We started with a clean slate to design the most highly optimized, race tuned cyclocross bike ever created.
Out of the gate the Vault was designed with a focus on disc brake optimization, making sure the Vault would be the ultimate disc brake cross bike. However, we did not stop there. We understand that hardcore cross racers still desire to run a traditional cantilever brake set up in certain racing applications. Because of this, the Vault features full cantilever capabilities with recessed (hidden) threaded inserts in the seat stays and fork, and dropouts that convert from 135mm disc brake spacing back to 130mm road spacing.
Whether you’re new to cross racing, looking to enter your first gravel race or a seasoned veteran, the Vault sets a higher bar for ride, style and tuned performance and redefines what is possible in the world of cyclocross and gravel racing.
• Internal cable routing adapts easily to either electronic or cable actuated shift systems. While the stealthy internal top tube brake routing can be totally disguised in disc brake form or cleanly hidden out of the way with cantilever brakes making portaging your bike a clean, snag-free affair.
• The Vault’s 1.5 inch tapered steerer fork with oversize crown optimizes stiffness, increases steering precision, provides great mud clearance while eliminating brake chatter and can be used with either cantilever or disc brakes.
• The Vault frame features the BB386EVO bottom bracket system (designed by our own Chris Cocalis). This maximum size BB greatly increases torsional rigidity and strength and improves power transfer for a more efficient ride while also providing for more tire clearance to clear the widest rims on the market.
• The Vault converts seamlessly from cantilever to disc with our innovative and clean removable brake post system, while the Vault’s carbon rear dropouts incorporate a dua insert system which allows you to easily convert the dropouts between 130mm and 135mm spacing for use with either standard road or disc brake specific wheels designs.
