Manufacturer Description

A mountain bike is freedom: the ability to pick a spot on the map and say, “Let’s go there,” or maybe go off the map altogether. With a lightweight frame, responsive front suspension, and powerful hydraulic disc brakes, the Pitch 27.5 is your perfect adventure partner. BEST OF BOTH WORLDS Riders have long debated whether fast-rolling 29er wheels were better than nimble 26ers. Turns out, the sweet spot for many is right in between, so the Pitch rolls on 27.5-inch wheels that keep much of a 29er’s confident handling in a tighter, lighter package. STRONG YET SMOOTH The A1 Premium Aluminum frame is burlier than a brontosaurus’s backbone. But strong doesn’t mean harsh or heavy. Our engineers went over every tube, tweaking, pinching, nipping and tucking to make sure it offers a smooth ride no matter what the trail conditions are. TOP TO BOTTOM QUALITY The Pitch’s sure-handling Sport Trail 27.5 Geometry provides unrivaled stability. SR SunTour XCE suspension fork keeps you grounded on the most technical trails. Shimano hydraulic disc brakes offer best-in-class power and reliability.
