Manufacturer Description

Are you ready for a seriously good time? Hit the trails on the Pitch Expert 1X, with a sturdy, lightweight aluminum frame for efficient climbing and dialed handling and high-quality suspension that turns any descent into the best rollercoaster you've ever been on. TRAIL-OPTIMIZED GEOMETRY The Sport Trail 27.5 geometry on the Pitch Expert 1X is designed for the perfect balance between stability and agility, with a position that keeps you perfectly balanced. The slack head angle offers precise line choice, while the short wheelbase mocks tight switchbacks. SUREFIRE SHIFTING The 10-speed Shimano Deore drivetrain features unparalleled performance in its class, with quick, quiet, precise shifts from the ergonomic Rapidfire Plus™ trigger shifter, and a clutch-style Shadow Plus™ rear derailleur that retains perfect chain tension to limit chain slap and bounce. The air-sprung SR SunTour XCR air suspension fork offers 80/90/100mm of lightweight, size-specific travel. Ground Control Sport tires in a wide 2.3-inch size keep the ride smooth and controlled. A1 Premium Aluminum frame is the perfect balance of light weight and durability.
