The Pitch was designed to introduce any type of rider, from the experienced to the non-experienced, to Mountain biking and the world of adventures available off the road. The Pitch Expert has been finely tuned to provide you with the biggest head start you can get on this adventure. Built with A1 premium aluminium, Specialized's most advanced aluminium frame, as well as a multi-circuit damping fork that ensures comfort even on the toughest of trails and to top it all off a Shimano Deore 9-speed groupset that is as smooth as it is reliable. So if you're looking to get started on the trails then the Pitch Expert is the best place to begin.
The frame is constructed from lightweight A1 Premium Aluminium in order to provide a compliant, durable platform to support our acclaimed Sport Trail 650b Geometry. Combined, you get a bike that's extremely versatile, making it equally capable on the climbs and descents.
Custom SR Suntour 650b fork features our Multi-Circuit Damping technology to eliminate any "pogo" effect by delivering 80/100mm (size-specific) of hydraulic damped suspension and rebound that smooths out rough terrain.
The Shimano Deore rear derailleur provides crisp, reliable shifting that you can count on when the going gets rough. With it, you'll be able to precisely move through the wide, 11-34t gear range, to make cruising the flats almost as easy climbing the hills.
