Zero Pivot technology does just what the name implies – it eliminates traditional bearing pivots, and replaces them with flexing carbon fiber structures, which is actually not as crazy as it sounds. Done correctly, a flexing carbon structure can be designed to last a virtually infinite number of cycles, while eliminating the weight, play and wear of bearing connections. We have developed proprietary carbon construction techniques that enable the Zero Pivot stays flex freely in one direction only, while actually resisting side-to-side and twisting loads better than a bearing pivot can. Zero Pivot is what allows the Scalpel to be not only the lightest dual suspension frame in the world, but to also have the best stiffness-to-weight ever recorded.
