Vault

At the Speed of Imagination

The updated Pivot Vault breaks the only remaining gravel cycling speed record worth breaking; the Speed of Imagination. With unrivaled handling, massive tire clearance, and pro-caliber power transfer, your riding is limited only by the number of adventures you dream of. Patent pending ISO FLEX seat post technology is without equal when it comes to all-day, all-terrain pedaling comfort, and our award winning gravel bike frames are uniquely ride tuned for compliance. The Pivot Vault truly covers every mile at the Speed of Imagination.

Endless Drop Bar Possibilities

With generous tire clearance thank to dual dropped chainstays, the Vault is a tire change away from being ready for any road and any pursuit. From 25c’s to high volume 650b, set your tire selection free, and tackle anything from primitive gravel to smooth single track to asphalt, and everything in between. While custom tuned carbon layups and the ISO Flex seat post keep the Vault ride experience stable and smooth for hour after hour, Pivot’s legendary power transfer feeds a rider’s need for speed on all surfaces and all drop bar disciplines. Tight 420mm seatstays, an ultra-light race tuned Hollow Core Carbon frame, and progressive new school geometry come together to form a complete thought in the world of modern adventure bicycles.

Boundaryless in the PNW

Boundaries recede aboard the Pivot Vault.  The Columbia river gorge and the terrain on both the Oregon and Washington sides of the river are rich in geographical history.  And rich in opportunity for quintessential gravel exploring.  Hood River, Oregon was home base for our PNW adventure, connecting paved, gravel, and singletrack trails in the shadows of Mt. St. Helens, Mt. Adams, and Mt. Hood.   Though not for the faint of heart, the Boundary Trail – from Council Lake to Mt. St. Helens – nestles into the Cascade Range ripe with opportunity for dropbar radness.

Which size bike should I purchase?

X-Small: 5'0" – 5’4”

Small: 5'4" – 5’8”

Medium: 5'8” – 6’

Large: 6’-6’2”

X-Large: 6'2” – 6’6”
How wide of a tire can I run on the Vault?
The Vault can accommodate tires up to 700C x 47C and 650b (27.5”) x 2.0”
What is ISO FLEX?
ISO FLEX is a Pivot designed, Patent Pending system that isolates the seatpost from the frame for extraordinary comfort while maintaining elite level frame stiffness. The lightweight rubber insert comes in two sizes: 27.2mm and 30.9mm allowing the rider to use any seatpost on the market including dropper posts with class-leading comfort. 27.2mm is included with the frame and the 30.9mm size is available for purchase through your local Pivot Cycles dealer.
What size seatpost does the Vault use?
The Vault frame can use a 27.2mm or 30.9mm seatposts by simply swapping the ISO FLEX inserts. The Vault comes standard with a 27.2mm ISO FLEX insert but the 30.9mm size can be purchased through any Pivot dealer.
What is the seat tube insertion depth on the Vault?
XS - 180mm

S - 248mm

M - 268mm

L - 289mm

XL - 308mm

*Please check seat post measurements carefully before installing the post.
How do I change the ISO FLEX insert?
Removing the ISO FLEX insert is a simple process that only takes a few minutes. Start by removing the seatpost and seat collar. Next, using a Shimano Hollowtech II bottom bracket tool (we recommend the genuine Shimano TL-FC32 Bottom Bracket Tool), unscrew the lock ring counter clockwise and remove the lock ring and washer from the frame. Reinstall the seat collar, seatpost, and tighten the collar bolt. Gently rock the saddle back and forth while pulling up until the ISO FLEX insert assembly slides out of the frame. Loosen the collar and remove the insert from the seatpost. To reinstall, lightly grease the outside of the insert and slide it into the frame. Reinstall the washer and lock ring by turning it clockwise by hand until it bottoms out on the insert. Then, using the TL-FC32 Bottom Bracket Tool, snug down the lockring, reinstall the seat collar, insert the seatpost to your desired height and tighten the collar bolt to 5 Nm. For more detailed instructions with photos please see our tech document under the Tech Specs tab.
What size seat clamp does the Vault use?
The Vault frame uses a proprietary seatpost clamp designed to work with the ISO FLEX system. Standard seat collars will not work.
Can I use a dropper post with this frame?
Yes, the Vault is designed for stealth internal dropper seatpost routing and works with any 27.2mm or 30.9mm dropper seatpost.
Can I use a power meter on the Vault?
Yes, the Vault will accept all pedal and crank-based power meters and has clearance for crank arm types such as Stages and Shimano.
Is the Vault frame compatible with suspension forks?
Yes, the Vault frame is compatible with the suspension gravel forks currently on the market such as the Fox 32 Stepcast AX or Lauf Grit and Grit SL models. Alternatively, we have had excellent results using the Redshift ShockStop suspension stem.
What is the fork offset on the Vault?
The fork offset on the Vault is 45mm.
What bottom bracket is used on the Vault and which cranks are compatible?
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.

Any 24mm spindle cranks from Shimano or SRAM are fully compatible with the proper 30mm BB conversion. The system is also compatible with Campy and of course 386EVO specific cranks from Rotor and FSA (BB30 specific cranks are not compatible with the 386EVO system)
Are there any other bottom brackets that will work with the Vault? Can you upgrade to ceramic bearings?
Any press fit 30 cups can be used with the 386Evo system.
What is the narrowest Q factor crank that the Vault will accept?
The Vault will accept standard road cranks from all major manufacturers where Q factor measurements are generally standardized.
What is the thread pitch on the rear axle?
Pivot uses a 1.5 thread pitch on the rear thru axle.
What hub/wheel spacing does the Vault use?
The Vault features 12x142mm thru axle spacing in the rear and the front hub/wheel spacing is 100mm with a 12mm thru axle.
What brakes does the Vault use?
The Vault is a disc brake only bike and can be used with any road specific hydraulic or mechanical disc brake on the market that is compatible with Shimano’s flat mount standard. There are options in the market to adapt post mount style calipers to work on the flat mount standard.
What size rotors will work on my Vault?
The Vault will work with 140-160mm rotors on the front and rear.
What type of rear brake adapter do I need?
On the front, Shimano’s flat mount brakes come with a plate that is reversible for either a 140mm or 160mm rotor. No additional brake adapter is required. The rear also uses Shimano’s new direct mount standard. With the new Shimano direct mount rear caliper and a 140mm rear rotor, there is no adaptor required. With the new Shimano direct mount rear caliper and a 160mm rear rotor, the correct adaptor is available from Shimano. For any standard post mount calipers from Shimano, SRAM, TRP, Hayes, etc. you will need the specific adaptor to go from the Shimano direct mount to the post mount standard. Currently, both Shimano, SRAM, and TRP offer these for 160mm rotors and 140mm rotors. The rear mount is 30mm thick and designed to use mounting bolts that are 37mm long with SRAM and 43.2mm long for Shimano flat mount brakes.
What front derailleur does the Vault use?
The Vault uses a braze-on style front derailleur. Cable routing is bottom pull.
What headset do I need for the Vault?
For the Pivot Vault, we use an integrated style headset. The upper bearing measures 1-1/8" with 45°/45° ACB
How much does it weigh?
The Vault frame weighs just 998 grams and the complete Force build comes in at 17.98lbs. Pivot bicycles are among the lightest available, but the weight is only one of many factors that make a great bicycle. Other aspects such as frame stiffness, strength, durability, and ride quality are just as important as weight to our engineers when designing our Hollow Core Carbon and aluminum frames. Instead of comparing grams online, we suggest you visit your local Pivot dealer and see our attention to detail, smart, high value spec, and class leading features. Bring a scale if you’d like, but take just one demo ride and you’ll feel why Pivot Cycles are the most well-rounded, highest performing bicycles on the market and in many cases, yes, it’s the lightest as well.
I would like to run Shimano Di2 on my Vault. What battery should I order? Can the cables be run internally?
The Vault is optimized for all drivetrain types including Shimano Di2. At the bottom of the frame is a large battery port designed to securely hold a Shimano Di2 BT-DN110 internal battery. All wires should be internally routed.
