The Specialized Pitch 27.5. 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. The Pitch is your perfect adventure partner.
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.
- The best mountain bikes are the ones that let you tackle any terrain with confidence. The Pitch’s sure-handling Sport Trail 27.5 Geometry is designed for ultimate stability, whether you’re railing down a flowy singletrack or picking your way through a technical section.
- Control means keeping those tires firmly planted. That’s where great suspension comes in, like the SR SunTour XCE 28 suspension fork on the Pitch, which features a coil spring for unparalleled small-bump responsiveness. Size-specific travel (80mm or 100mm) keeps geometry and handling consistent for riders of all sizes.
- Braking isn’t just about power; it’s about how that power is used. The Shimano hydraulic disc brakes on the Pitch feature best-in-class modulation, so you can apply exactly the right amount of stopping power, without a death grip on the lever.
