Details

That spot where the bike path turns from concrete to dirt? The Pitch Sport is made to explore beyond, with a sturdy aluminum frame, smooth-riding front suspension, grippy tires for loose surfaces, and sure-stopping hydraulic disc brakes to keep you under control.

Strong, sensitive type
Old-school strongmen have nothing on our A1 Premium Aluminum frame. But the Pitch Sport is in touch with its feelings too, offering a ride that's as comfortable as it is durable, thanks to a lightweight proprietary alloy and Sport Trail 27.5 Geometry for sure handling.

Size-specific suspension
It's not enough to offer quality suspension like the coil-sprung SR SunTour XCT 30 fork on the Pitch Sport. We also custom-design travel based on frame size to keep the geometry and ride quality consistent over all sizes. Lockout limits annoying bobbing on smooth terrain.

Sweet spot wheels
Why 27.5-inch wheels exactly, not 27 or 28? It's a happy medium which offers most of the benefits of the older 26-inch size, like light weight and agility, with those of the newer, oversize 29er version, like fast-rolling efficiency and easy roll over obstacles.

Value and performance
The 24-speed Shimano drivetrain gives you the right gear, anytime. A long-lasting, rust-resistant KMC chain offers quiet, sure shifting. Grippy Ground Control Sport tires feature Flak Jacket flat protection.

- The heart of the Pitch Sport is the Sport Trail 27.5 Geometry, which features a roomy cockpit to keep your center of gravity securely between the wheels for control, and a slacker head angle designed for more stable steering.
- The key to mountain biking is confidence, which starts with knowing you're in control. Thanks to the Shimano hydraulic disc brakes on the Pitch Sport, you'll always know you have plenty of stopping power, no matter the trail conditions.
- We obsess about tires a little. OK, a lot; it's where the bike meets the trail, after all. So for the Pitch line, we chose our wide, 2.3-inch Ground Control Sport, with a versatile, fast-rolling knobby tread that offers superb grip and traction for any trail.
